ROCHESTER, NY – The Patriot Sprint Tour running at the Ransomville Speedway is a long-standing tradition, but for the first time the great the winged action from the Big R will be sensationalized on television.
The first 60-minute race night on Speedway Showcase will debut this weekend on Spectrum Sports Channel (formerly Time Warner Cable Sports Channel) across Upstate New York. Airtimes will vary depending on the market and are listed below.
This episode is the first time is the six years the Patriot Sprint Tour will air an event on cable, and the first time for Ransomville Speedway. A full field of contenders filed in to the pits on a clear night and when the sprints finally took to the track for heats, the track was in blistering-fast condition and made for some incredible lap times around the Western New York racing staple.
A total of 10 different camera angles were utilized throughout the night, including two track-level cameras and five cameras riding on-board with some of the best drivers. Doug Elkins and Rich Vleck walk you through the full-length race coverage from the heats, dash and 25-lap A-Main while Paul Szmal pounded the pits, getting the dirt before they hit the dirt. The Speedway Showcase team also brings you some unique stories, including the family atmosphere drivers recognize when running with the Patriots and the improvements being made to the Ransomville Speedway in preparation of the big return of the World of Outlaws on Sunday Night, July 23rd.
This broadcast, forged by Ransomville Speedway and the Patriot Sprint Tour was also made possible by Prestige Pool & Spa, A-Verdi Storage Containers and Super Gen Products/Champion Power Equipment.
Speedway Showcase will air regularly at 11:00 A.M. each Sunday Morning, with more airtimes available throughout the week. After the final airtime, the broadcast will be available on-demand at www.SpeedwayShowcase.com, just as the first episode is now. Later this summer, three events from the Weeedsport Speedway, plus the Triple Crown Showdown at Ohsweken Speedway will be featured. Speedway Showcase is produced by Hot Wings Media, which has broadcasted more than 50 race nights over the last 10 years. For more information, visit www.SpeedwayShowcase.com.
