Final Episode of Weedsport’s Sportsman for 2017 Ready to Air on Speedway Showcase Starting Sunday


ROCHESTER, NY – The great Sportsman competition at Weedsport Speedway took a new step this year with three of the Beyea Headers Sportsman Series races showcased on television.  The last leg of that trilogy will begin airing this Sunday.

Beginning this Sunday, August 20th, at 11:00 AM, the third Beyea Headers Sportsman Series event from Weedsport Speedway will start broadcasting on Spectrum Sports Channel (formerly Time Warner Cable Sports Channel) across Upstate New York. Additional airtimes will vary depending on the market and are listed below.

A 25-lap feature meant that teams had to get to the front in a hurry and with another all-star field on hand that was easier said than done..  An amazing 11 camera angles were utilized on the night, with two in-car cameras displaying incredible views from the heat of the battle.

Host Rich Vleck is joined by expert Doug Elkins in the booth while veteran pit reporter Paul Szmal gives expert insight from the pits.  In addition to all of the racing action, there is another edition of the popular “Kid Question” to bring you closer to the sportsman stars plus put the drivers on the spot to find out how they make their cars go faster.

Speedway Showcase will air regularly at 11:00 A.M. (or 9:00 A.M.) each Sunday Morning, with more airtimes available throughout the week.   After the final airtime, the broadcast will be available on-demand at, just as the first two episodes are now.  Starting September 10th, the Triple Crown Showdown from Ohsweken Speedway will air to round out 2017.  Speedway Showcase is produced by Weedsport Productions and edited by Hot Wings Media, which has broadcasted more than 50 race nights over the last 10 years.
