One of the Northeast's must-see racing events will be showcased to a worldwide audience this weekend. The 30th Annual U.S. Open at the historic Lancaster National Speedway (NY) will be streamed live on Speed51.com this Sunday, September 23.
Race fans all over the globe who can't make it to the track located just outside of Buffalo, New York will be able to watch the event live by becoming premium subscribers to the Speed51 Network.
"We look forward to putting on a great show for the fans in the stands, and the ones in other states."
The 30th Annual U.S. Open will be headlined by Sunday's 125-lap feature race for the Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series. The ultra-competitive series will be competing in its fifth and final event of the season at Lancaster. In addition to the check and trophy awaiting the winner of the race, the “Troyer / Treichler” Trophy designed by NASCAR Cup Series driver Corey LaJoie will be delivered to the driver who has earned the most points in the five Lancaster Modified races this season.
Andy Jankowiak, Chuck Hossfeld, Matt Hirschman, Mike Leaty and Patrick Emerling are just a handful of the Modified stars that fans will likely see competing in the U.S. Open.
The Race of Champions Late Model Series and Advanced Auto Parts Super Stocks will join the Modifieds on the schedule Sunday afternoon.
"It's shaping up to be a beautiful early fall day for racing in the Western New York region this Sunday," said Speed51.com Tri-State Editor Daryl Canfield. "Our staff at Speed51.com is looking forward to getting out to the track to enjoy a great day of racing at one of our favorite facilities. We encourage everyone to get out to see this fantastic event in person, but if you can't make it we'll have you covered on Speed51.com."
Speed51.com's live video stream of Sunday's action will begin with qualifying heat races at approximately 2:30 p.m. ET. Race fans will be able to watch all of the action through a one-camera broadcast with audio from the track's public address system.
