LANCASTER, N.Y. (June 18, 2016) – Lancaster National Speedway is proud to announce the second annual “Ol’ Boy Cup 60” Bill Colton Memorial Race of Champions Modified Series event on Thursday, June 30 will be streamed live via pay-per-view on Speed51.com.
This will be the first-ever race held at Lancaster National Speedway & Dragway to be available via live online stream for the price of $19.95 through the motorsports website Speed51.com. There will be a 150-mile IP address blackout of the live stream that begins at 7 p.m. ET.
Race fans outside of the blackout will be able to watch all the action on June 30, highlighted by the heats and 60-lap feature for the Race of Champions Modified Series. Plus, they will see the Advance Auto Parts Street Stocks, Roaming Buffalo 4-Cylinders and NYPA TQ Midgets.
The feed will feature audio from the voice of Lancaster National Speedway, Dave Buchanan, plus co-announcer Caz Krul and Race of Champions Modified Series announcer Charlie Langlois.
“When we first talked to Speed51.com about this, it intrigued me what a historic step this is for Lancaster National Speedway & Dragway,” said Tim Packman, Track President. “Knowing our track and great racing could be seen by our fans who no longer live in the WNY area via the great job Speed51.com does makes this event even better.
“We are proud of our facility, our competitive racing and racers in all divisions. Modern technology is only getting better and the chance to bring more attention to Lancaster and the great racing the Modifieds and our regular divisions put on each week to people across the country is welcomed.”
The only previous live video broadcast from Lancaster was in August of 1996 when the American Speed Association made its only visit to the facility. The race was broadcast live on The Nashville Network (TNN). Lancaster National Speedway has also appeared on ESPN, Time Warner Cable Sports Network and Empire Sports Network in taped broadcasts.
The “Ol’ Boy Cup 60” will be the seventh event of the season for the Race of Champions Modified Series. Current series points leader, Patrick Emerling, won the Queen City Clash 75 at Lancaster on May 21. He has also won three Sunoco Sportsman features at Lancaster, so far, in 2016.
Defending “Ol’ Boy Cup 60” winner Chuck Hossfeld is currently second in the RoC Modified Series standings. Hossfeld finished second to Emerling in the Queen City Clash back in May.
