Motor Racing Network is kicking off its 46th year as “The Voice of NASCAR” by introducing the MRN App, which is now available for free on Apple and Android devices.
Motor sports fans on the go will stay in the know with comprehensive coverage of NASCAR, drag racing and dirt-track action from multiple series with the new MRN App – available in the App Store for iPhone and on Google Play for Android.
They can now locate and listen to their local Motor Racing Network affiliate, or the one nearest their location, with the push of a button in the palm of their hand. News and other online content will be available, too, from MRN.com.
“Digital, download and on-demand listening are terms we’ve all come to understand as the industry evolves,” said MRN President and Executive Producer David Hyatt. “Convenience is essential, too, and the new MRN App will serve racing fans as a perfect complement to our award-winning, traditional on-air motor sports coverage.”
The MRN App features a Jeff Gordon section, where users can follow the four-time champion through social media as he navigates his final full-time season in the Sprint Cup Series. Many of Gordon’s most memorable wins that were broadcast by MRN will now be available anytime, anywhere.
Fans will have the opportunity to interact with the MRN broadcast crew through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. There’s a calendar reminder and NASCAR Series push notices, in addition to MRN archive audio and video. Connectivity to track apps from International Speedway Corporation-owned facilities is also available, featuring quick access for ticket purchases.
For those who follow dirt-track racing, the new MRN App will include action from winged sprint cars, Late Model and Modified competition.
Motor Racing Network is currently in the midst of a 10-day block of broadcast coverage from Budweiser Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway that will culminate with Sunday’s 57th running of the Daytona 500.
In addition to exclusive radio coverage of 25 Sprint Cup Series race weekends this year, MRN will broadcast 21 XFINITY Series events and all 23 races in the Camping World Truck Series. The network’s 2015 slate will once again conclude in December with live coverage of the Sprint Cup Series Awards in Las Vegas.
