Motor Racing Network Returns To Rockingham

NASCAR returns to Rockingham Speedway this month and Motor Racing Network – “The Voice of NASCAR” – is going back, too, for live coverage of the track’s inaugural Camping World Truck Series race.

“The Rock” will host the Good Sam Roadside Assistance Carolina 200 Presented by Cheerwine on Sunday, April 15; part of an April MRN schedule that also features stops at Kansas Speedway and Richmond International Raceway.

The month began with veteran Barney Hall’s return to the broadcast booth last weekend at Martinsville Speedway, after illness sidelined him from Daytona Speedweeks and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ annual, early-season western swing. It will conclude with Motor Racing Network’s exclusive coverage of the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series from Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Next up on MRN’s schedule is a return to Rockingham, which hosts its first NASCAR-sanctioned race since February of 2004. Rookie John King, who won the season opener at Daytona International Speedway, carries a one-point lead into the third race of the 2012 Camping World Truck Series championship chase, and air time for the Good Sam Roadside Assistance Carolina 200 is set for 12:45 p.m. (EDT) on Sunday, April 15.

From there, it’s on to Kansas Speedway for a Sprint Cup/Camping World Truck Series doubleheader on April 21-22. Motor Racing Network and NASCAR then return to short-track competition April 27-28 at Richmond International Raceway.

MRN’s broadcast month concludes April 29 with the Grand Prix of Miami, Round Three of the 2012 GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series, live from Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The April schedule is part of Motor Racing Network’s 2012 slate that features 86 live broadcasts from 33 venues across the country. In addition to servicing a nationwide network of affiliate radio stations, all programming is streamed live at individual stations’ websites as well as – and now accessible on mobile devices.
