HOLLY, Mich. (March 18, 2018) — Must See Racing officials have released the tracks and dates of the events that will be televised this season through the organization’s partnership with SPEED SPORT and MAVTV.
Five Must See Racing sprint car events will be taped for airing on MAVTV, with a two-hour telecast of the 70th running of the Pay Less Little 500 presented by the UAW-GM on May 26 at Indiana’s Anderson Speedway headlining the schedule.
This year’s Little 500 has a stellar entrant list including past winners Jeff Bloom and Kody Swanson, Brian Tyler, Chris Windom, Shane Cottle and Jacob Wilson, plus a host of racing stars from across the country and Canada.
The first race to be taped will be the May 12 Must See Racing round at Michigan’s Berlin Raceway.
The award-winning Suzuki Presents SPEED SPORT program will be hosted by SPEED SPORT publisher and veteran broadcaster Ralph Sheheen and Derek Pernesiglio will offer in-depth coverage of Must See Racing events to a prime-time national television audience.
Other MSR events to be shown on MAVTV are the inaugural David D.
