Eight Nights of Whelen All-American Racing Airing Live
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Race fans around the world got to watch last year as 14-year-old Harrison Burton became the youngest Division I winner in NASCAR Whelen All-American Series history and rising dirt racing star Christopher Bell scored his first NASCAR win. That was possible thanks to the coverage from New Smyrna Speedway on FansChoice.tv.
This year, fans will once again be able to catch all the action of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing at the 50th World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing (Twitter hashtag: #NewSmyrnaWS) on FansChoice.tv.
The web platform, which features free live streaming of NASCAR, AMA Pro and IMSA racing, as well as assorted motorsports events from across the globe, will provide comprehensive coverage of one of the premier short-track events in NASCAR.
“At a time when the spotlight is on the Daytona area, this is a tremendous opportunity to showcase some of the best short-track racers as the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series gets started in a big way,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR vice president of touring and weekly series. “FansChoice.tv will allow fans to check out the coverage in a variety of ways: Supplementing what they’re enjoying from the stands at New Smyrna, as a second screen as they take in all the action at ‘The World Center of Racing,’ Daytona International Speedway, or on their computers, tablets and phones wherever they are in the world.”
Streaming will begin each night at 7:30 p.m. ET.
In addition, NASCARHomeTracks.com will again team up with Speed51.com to provide live updates, results and photos throughout the entire event – including practice and qualifying – through its popular Race Central Live feature.
Racing will get underway Friday, Feb. 12, headlined by the first of seven Super Late Model races. Coverage will continue Saturday, Feb. 13 and resume on Monday, Feb. 15 as the Modifieds take the track for a 50-lap feature.
The Modifieds will run five nights, culminating with the Richie Evans Memorial 100-lap race Friday, Feb. 19. The Super Late Model 100-lap finale will wrap up the week on Saturday, Feb. 20.
The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East will kick off its season on Sunday, Feb. 14, at New Smyrna with the Jet Tools 150. That race will air on a date to be announced on NBCSN as part of the network’s coverage of NASCAR’s top developmental series.
Last year, Bell outran Burton to capture the Bruce Gowland Memorial 100 on the final night of Super Late Model racing. Wisconsin’s Zane Smith, 15, won the World Series for the Super Late Model division, while Burton, the son of former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jeff Burton, set the NASCAR mark for youngest winner at 14 years old with his feature win earlier in the week. In addition, 2013 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Ryan Preece won the Evans Memorial to capture his first week-long Modified championship on the half-mile.
In addition to the live coverage, all of the night’s action will be available as on-demand replays on FansChoice.tv.
