ROCHESTER, NY – The speed of the sprint cars will be brought in to the homes of all Upstate New York television owners this weekend on Speedway Showcase.
Speedway Showcase will air its second of five episodes for 2018 on Saturday, June 16 and Sunday June 17 in Upstate New York. The newly-named Land of Legends Raceway in Canandaigua, NY was the setting for the Patriot Sprint Tour’s 2018 Season Opener. A staunch field of 39 winged things rolled in to the Ontario County Fairgrounds and saw champions and rookies challenge one another to match speed with slick conditions.
The Land of Legends event will begin airing in the Buffalo market on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. on CW 23 (WNLO). After a station problem last week, Buffalo fans will finally get a chance to see Speedway Showcase in their homes in 2018! The Syracuse market will be able to see Speedway Showcase on Sunday Morning at 7:30 a.m. on CBS 5 (WTVH), while the Rochester market airing will be at 10:30 a.m. on CW 16 (WHAM-2). Please be aware that your television guide may not appropriately list these airtimes, but are working to rectify this issue.
Former Patriot Sprint Tour announcer Rich Vleck and past Land of Legends announcer Doug Elkins have the call of the race action while Paul Szmal, another former Canandaigua announcer, provides experiences insight from trackside. In addition to all of the racing action, there is the ever-popular tech minute, the question of the hour, and a visit with new Land of Legends Promoter Paul Cole.
A week following the broadcasts, the Weedsport event will be available on-demand at www.SpeedwayShowcase.com. All prior episodes of Speedway Showcase, including last week’s episode from Weedsport, along with more content is found on the website in the all-new A-Verdi Video Container and on the Speedway Showcase YouTube Channel, presented by A-Verdi.
