Motor Racing Network Launches Busy June Schedule

Motor Racing Network – “The Voice of NASCAR” – will open one of its busiest months of the season this weekend with four races from two very different venues, including Sunday’s FedEx 400 Benefitting Autism Speaks in Dover, Del. 

All told, MRN will deliver 12 live race broadcasts from seven different states. Its busy month will begin today with exclusive radio coverage of the Lucas Oil 200 Camping World Truck Series race at Dover International Speedway. Barney Hall and Joe Moore will anchor the broadcast, which starts at 4:15 p.m. (EDT).

NASCAR Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series races will follow from “The Monster Mile” on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. But the one-mile concrete oval isn’t the only venue hosting Motor Racing Network this weekend. 

The GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series will run its inaugural Chevrolet GRAND-AM 200 Presented by Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers around the scenic Belle Isle Park street circuit Saturday afternoon, with MRN’s live coverage beginning at 4:45 p.m. Eli Gold and Preston Root will anchor the broadcast from “The Motor City.” 

The network will return to Michigan for Father’s Day Weekend to present a NASCAR doubleheader. The Alliance Truck Parts 250 for the Nationwide Series will be run Saturday, June 16, at Michigan International Speedway. The following day, Sprint Cup Series teams hit the newly paved Irish Hills oval for the Quicken Loans 400. 

The broadcast schedule for the weekend of June 8-10 will feature three races from three places. Friday night, it’s the Camping World Truck Series in Texas. On Saturday afternoon, the GRAND-AM Rolex Series visits the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and the following day, MRN’s tripleheader concludes with Sprint Cup Series competition from Pocono Raceway. 

The network’s broadcast month includes a visit to Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., and will end Thursday, June 28, with the UNOH 225 Camping World Truck Series race from Kentucky Speedway. 

The June schedule is part of Motor Racing Network’s 2012 slate that features 88 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. 

Motor Racing Network’s 2012 slate began in January with a live broadcast from the NASCAR Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and included around-the-clock coverage of the 50th Anniversary running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. It’ll conclude in December with the Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony in Las Vegas.
