Four-cylinder fury from one of the nation’s most prestigious short tracks will be coming to a nationally-televised audience on MAVTV in 2019. When the grassroots racers from the Vores Compact Touring Series battle for 50 laps at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 1, cameras will be rolling for a tape-delayed broadcast on Speed51’s Short Track America on MAVTV.
"It's exciting for a national audience to see the talent of VCTS drivers, as Speed51's Short Track America on MAVTV covers VCTS racing from Bristol Motor Speedway " stated Steve Vore of the Vores Compact Touring Series.
Currently, 80 four-cylinder racers from all over the United States are entered for the Vores Compact Touring Series portion of the 3rd annual Short Track U.S. Nationals. Drivers from Florida, New York, Ohio, Wisconsin and beyond are represented on the entry list for the event.
Four short track racing divisions will be competing on the high-banks of Bristol during the Short Track U.S. Nationals, headlined by a 100-lap Super Late Model race for the ARCA/CRA Super Series, CARS Tour and Southern Super Series.
The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Pro Late Models and Van Hoy Oil CRA Street will also be in action at “The World’s Fastest Half Mile.”
It was previously announced that all four divisions, with a focus on the Super Late Models, would be showcased on the tape-delayed broadcast on Short Track America. In addition to that broadcast, the Vores Compact Touring Series will now be featured with its own one-hour broadcast.
Those who own a four-cylinder race car and want to race at Bristol in front of a nationally-televised audience are encouraged to file their entries for the upcoming Short Track U.S. Nationals.
The air date for the Vores Compact Touring Series broadcast will be announced at a later date.
The previously announced airing of the Short Track U.S. Nationals at Bristol will debut on Wednesday, July 24 at 7 p.m. ET. Additional airings will follow at 10 p.m. ET that night and 4 a.m. ET on Thursday, July 25.
