Speed51’s Summer Thunder TV Returns With 22 Races in July

Speed51 is bringing the thunder back for a fourth consecutive year in 2020, with the return of Summer Thunder TV.  While races and broadcasts are still being added to this summer’s schedule, 22 broadcasts across 12 states are already set for the month of July.


The schedule boasts something for every short track fan.  From Outlaw Karts to Super Late Models, whether it’s on pavement or dirt, whether or not it has fenders, the Summer Thunder July schedule has you covered. All of it is available at no additional cost to Speed51 premium monthly or yearly subscribers.




The Summer Thunder TV schedule begins with an action-packed Independence Day weekend.  On Friday, July 3, fans can watch the Intimidator 100 for Outlaw Late Models at Kalamazoo Speedway (MI) and the Granite State Pro Stock Series at Claremont Motorsports Park (NH).


Saturday, July 4 boasts the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series Independence Shootout at Cherokee Speedway (SC) and the Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series’ July 4th Spectacular at Thunder Hill Speedway (TN).


Summer Thunder then heads to Wisconsin, getting fans ready for the Slinger Nationals with a pair of broadcasts from the Slinger Super Speedway.  Saturday, July 5 brings the Prelude to the Nationals headlined by the Big 8 Late Model Series, while practice for the Slinger Nationals will be broadcast on Monday, July 6.


The Outlaw Karts and Micro Sprints of Millbridge Speedway will then take center stage on July 7-8. Millbridge Speedway will also be part of the Summer Thunder TV schedule on July 21-22, two weeks later.


Saturday, July 11 already promises to be a day filled with racing for Speed51 subscribers. Broadcasts scheduled for the day include the Vores Compact Touring Series at Angola Motor Speedway (IN), the FASTRAK Racing Series at Friendship Motor Speedway (NC), the ARCA Midwest Tour’s Wayne Carter Classic at Grundy County Speedway (IL), the ULTIMATE Northeast Super Late Model Series at Hagerstown Speedway (MD) and the Southern Super Series’ Rumble by the River 125 at Montgomery Motor Speedway (AL).


Another Wisconsin doubleheader will grace the Summer Thunder schedule on July 24-25.  The Larry Detjens Memorial features the Big 8 Late Models on Friday, July 24, with the ARCA Midwest Tour Super Late Model stars taking center stage on Saturday, July 25.


July 25’s schedule also includes the Wheelman Racing Series at Citrus County Speedway (FL), ULTIMATE Northeast at Greater Cumberland Raceway (MD) and the Vores Compacts at Shady Bowl Speedway (OH).


Closing out the July Summer Thunder schedule, the third race of the Deep South Cranes Blizzard Series takes place on Friday, July 31 at Five Flags Speedway (FL), continuing the road to the 53rd Annual Snowball Derby.


All of these broadcasts will be available free for Speed51 monthly and yearly premium subscribers. For a $9.99 monthly subscription, fans can watch all 22 of these broadcasts – an average of 45 cents per broadcast.  That’s not including access to Speed51’s on-demand video library, with highlights, recaps and more from these events and many others.


As we navigate the current situation in our country, Speed51 expects to add more live broadcasts to the Summer Thunder TV schedule during the month. Additionally, Summer Thunder TV will continue during the month of August, with that schedule being announced in the coming weeks.
