NASCAR’s 66th season has concluded, but MRN.com’s second season of “NASCAR Coast to Coast” rolls on for one more week with a pair of special broadcasts Friday and Saturday evening.
Co-hosts Kyle Rickey and Buddy Long will be live at the Charlotte (N.C.) Convention Center for the NASCAR Touring & Weekly Series awards, honoring the champions from the sport’s top developmental series.
Coverage will originate from the red carpet each night, with air time 5-6 p.m. EST. Friday’s featured guest for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Awards will be 2014 national champion Anthony Anders of Easley, S.C. On Saturday for the Touring Series Night of Champions Awards, Rickey and Long will welcome all of this year’s champions from the seven touring series: Ben Rhodes (K&N Pro Series East), Greg Pursley (K&N Pro Series West), Doug Coby (Whelen Modified Tour), Andy Seuss (Whelen Southern Modified Tour), Anthony Kumpen (NASCAR Euro Series), L.P. Dumoulin (Canadian Tire Series Presented by Mobil 1) and Abraham Calderon (Toyota Mexico Series).
“These are some of the sport’s brightest young stars. It’s an honor for Motor Racing Network to be part of this championship weekend … saluting them for their dedication, hard work and – most importantly – their success in 2014,” said MRN President and Executive Producer David Hyatt. “We welcome them to Charlotte and thank NASCAR for the opportunity to share in their excitement.”
The special broadcasts of “NASCAR Coast to Coast,” to be produced by Craig Moore, will lead into the Awards Show each night – both of which will be streamed live at NASCARHomeTracks.com starting at 6 p.m. (EST). Anders and the All-American Series will be in the spotlight Friday with the remainder of the champions being honored Saturday.
This weekend’s programming will wrap up MRN’s 2014 racing schedule that included 122 live events from 44 venues. “NASCAR Coast to Coast” is part of the network’s lineup of exclusive online content streamed weekly at MRN.com. The show will kick off its third season in 2015.
