Motor Racing Network Ready For Big November

Motor Racing Network – “The Voice of NASCAR” – will broadcast seven races during the first 18 days of November as the road toward Ford Championship Weekend continues. 

It’ll pass through Fort Worth, Texas, for Friday night’s WinStar World Casino 350 before stops at Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) and Homestead-Miami Speedway bring NASCAR’s 64th season to a close.

This week, the network will feature live coverage of Friday’s WinStar World Casino 350 Camping World Truck Series race from Texas Motor Speedway. James Buescher holds a 21-point championship lead over Ty Dillon with just three races remaining. MRN will air all three events including upcoming stops in Arizona and South Florida. 

The pace picks up next week with full coverage of the Sprint Cup/Nationwide/Camping World Truck Series tripleheader in the Desert Southwest at PIR. The Lucas Oil 150 will get the weekend started on Friday, Nov. 9. 

The following day, the NASCAR Nationwide Series will run the Great Clips 200, where Elliott Sadler goes for a season sweep in his No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet. The weekend wraps up with the AdvoCare 500 on Sunday, Nov. 11 – the next-to-last round of the 2012 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. 

From the southwestern United States, the MRN crew will head 2,400 miles east to Homestead-Miami Speedway for Ford Championship Weekend on Nov. 16, 17 and 18. 

Like Phoenix, the schedule in South Florida will feature all three of NASCAR’s top national series. Motor Racing Network will provide full coverage with three race broadcasts starting with Friday’s Ford EcoBoost 200 for the Camping World Truck Series. 

Season-ending races in the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series will follow over the next two days. On Sunday, Nov. 18, NASCAR will crown its 64th Cup Series champion. The network follows 12 days later with exclusive radio coverage of the Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony in Las Vegas. 

Motor Racing Network is reminding fans they can still enter the “Rev Up and Boot Up Sweepstakes Presented by CAT Footwear” by tuning into network broadcasts this month and texting the word “CAT” to the designated number. They can also enter by visiting or MRN’s Facebook page. The Grand Prize is an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the 2013 Daytona 500. 

The November schedule is part of MRN’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 with the Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony in Las Vegas.
