Pensacola, FL –Saturday, September 26, 2015 at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida, will be a historic day for the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco. It will mark the first free, online-television broadcast for the third-year Super Late Model tour. PFC Brakes is making this six-camera, full broadcast possible through Speed51.com TV powered by JEGS.
The Deep South Cranes 150 is the season finale for the Southern Super Series and is also a tune-up for the 48th annual Snowball Derby at FFS in December. While fans at the track will surely be on their feet as drivers vie for one last checkered flag and one driver brings home the championship hardware, a worldwide audience will be able to watch it as well with a live Speed51.com TV broadcast presented by PFC Brakes.
“It is going to be an intense night and we understand that there will be a lot of people hundreds of miles away that have family or work commitments that will not be able to be here at Five Flags Speedway. That’s what makes what PFC Brakes is doing for those people so special,”said Tim Bryant, Series Director of the Southern Super Series. “With the trend of live video being part of the future for short track racing, we’re excited to have this broadcast, not only for us, but for the racers as well because it gives them an increased amount of exposure for their sponsors.”
This event will have a 200-mile blackout (driving distance) from Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL. The blackout will include the cities of Montgomery, AL to the north, Mobile, AL and New Orleans LA to the west and Tallahassee, FL to the east.
“Television broadcasts don’t work for all short track races, but this is the season finale for the Southern Super Series, so PFC Brakes wanted to make this possible for fans that can’t make it to the track,”said Bob Dillner, Executive Editor of Speed51.com. “It’s a really big thing for all involved; even for the families of the racers that cannot make it to the track. They will be able to watch their significant others, children, grandchildren, siblings, or whatever the case is, on a full-blown live broadcast, for free.”
51 TV, the leader in live short track racing video broadcasts, produced the first live broadcast of Five Flags Speedway’s signature event, the Snowball Derby, last December.
