BRISTOL, Tenn. – Renowned short track website Speed51.com will again offer the exclusive pay-per-view for the 2018 Short Track U.S. Nationals.
Speed51.com will offer customers a webcast pay-per-view experience of the Short Track U.S. Nationals (May 18-20). The partnership will once again provide a stage to a worldwide audience for one of the biggest events in short track racing.
Those interested in watching the race will be available to choose multiple tiers at multiple price points. Viewers can purchase the weekend pay-per-view at $64.99 or pay per day for $24.99 at http://www.speed51.com/bristol/.
A subscription for the pay-per-view will include lifetime replays, DVR capabilities (pause, rewind, etc.) and much more. These options will give real-time followers the opportunity to customize their Short Track U.S. Nationals experience. The event also will be available for sale for seven days following the race, giving event participants the option to relive the experience with the added features. As usual, Speed51.com will provide free and easy access for all the up-to-date information, statistics and highlights from the event and the world of short track racing.
“Just the word ‘Bristol’ gets the adrenaline flowing and we believe this year will be even more exciting than the inaugural event,” said Bob Dillner of Speed51.com. “Drivers now know what to expect and teams can perfect their machines to handle the physical demands of the high-banked half-mile. We plan to capture all the action with a multi-camera setup through the Pay-Per-View broadcast. We enjoy working with Bristol to make this available for those that can’t make it in May, but it certainly can’t capture the feel of personally being in Thunder Valley.”
More than 500 race cars split among six classes are expected to be in competition during the three-day event, including racing in Super Late Model, Pro/Crate Late Model, Late Model Stock, Modified, Street Stock and Compact. The five sanctioning bodies that will be represented are CRA (Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, Street Stock), CARS Tour (Super Late Models, Late Model Stock), Southern Super Series (Super Late Model), I-CAR All-Star Modified Tour (Modifieds) and the VORES Compact Touring Series (Compacts).
