SPEED to Broadcast Arenacross in 2013

December 18, 2012 1:00pm

AURORA, Ill. – Feld Motor Sports® and SPEED have released the 2013 AMSOIL Arenacross television package that features two live telecasts in addition to eight next-day-air programs for a total of 10 hours on SPEED.

“With many exciting changes in store for the upcoming season, 2013 is primed to be a banner year for AMSOIL Arenacross,” said Ken Hudgens, COO, Feld Motor Sports. “The new AMSOIL Arenacross television package is a huge step forward for the sport – highlighted by two live races.”

The opening race of the 2013 AMSOIL Arenacross season from the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass., will kick off the championship with a live broadcast on Saturday, January 5, which will serve as the lead-in to the live broadcast of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season opener in Anaheim, Calif.

The second live broadcast of the 2013 AMSOIL Arenacross season will be from the sixth race of the championship inside Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes Barre, Pa., on Saturday, February 9.

The remaining eight AMSOIL Arenacross tour stops will all feature exclusive next-day telecasts, scheduled to air the Sunday following each respective race. This is the first time that each stop of AMSOIL Arenacross will be seen within 24 hours of the checkered flag.

“It’s great to continue building the relationship we have with the AMSOIL Arenacross audience,” said SPEED President Scott Ackerson. “January 5 is certainly circled on the calendar with the live kickoff of Monster Energy Supercross racing season from Anaheim and live AMSOIL Arenacross is a major part of that. Along with an expanded pre-race show that leads into the premiere of the Monster Energy Supercross season, it makes for the total package.”
