Broadcasts Will be Provided by the Speed 51 Radio Team
NASCAR PR
NASCAR announced today that NASCARHomeTracks.com will feature live internet radio broadcasts of 32 touring series events, beginning with Thursday’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series West season-opener at Phoenix International Raceway.

NASCARHomeTracks.com is NASCAR.com’s official home for touring and weekly series news and results. The live radio broadcasts will be provided by the team from Speed 51 Radio, headed by SPEED announcer Bob Dillner.

The broadcasts will feature flag-to-flag coverage of many of the top events in NASCAR’s touring series, including the championship season finales in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and West, NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to bring the racing action at our short tracks to fans across North America,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR managing director of racing operations. “There is no substitute for being at the race track, but this is yet another avenue for fans to follow their favorite drivers and series wherever they may be.”

Among the highlights on the broadcast schedule include the annual combination race for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series on May 21 at Iowa Speedway, and the first NASCAR Whelen Modified/NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour special event on Sept. 11 at Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway.

The announcement comes on the heels of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series kickoff, which saw NASCAR K&N Pro Series alum Trevor Bayne capture the Daytona 500. The broadcasts provide fans a unique opportunity to following the next wave of stars as they gain valuable experience competing in NASCAR’s regional touring series.

"This is a unique opportunity NASCAR is providing its fans, teams and marketing partners and we are excited to be part of it,” Dillner said. “I was there for the inaugural NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season back in 1985 and we (Speed 51 Radio) all have a lot of experience with each of the touring series. We all have a passion for this and we hope that is portrayed this year on the NASCAR Hometracks Radio broadcasts."

Speed 51 Radio has extensive experience broadcasting short-track racing and hosted a live fan event with the NASCAR champions last December in Charlotte, N.C. Dillner and Elgin Traylor will broadcast the Phoenix race, while Dillner and Speed 51 Radio’s Matt Kentfield were part of the team that hosted the pre-event web broadcasts of the NASCAR Touring Series Night of Champions Awards Gala and NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Awards Banquet on NASCARHomeTracks.com in December.


The first NASCARHomeTracks.com broadcast will come from Phoenix International Raceway on Thursday, February 24th.  (NASCAR Photo)
