Since 1970, Motor Racing Network – “The Voice of NASCAR” – has delivered award-winning race coverage to listeners throughout the United States.
With today’s introduction of the “Fan Forum Hotline,” MRN will listen to the collective voice of the fans – who can now call toll-free at 1-844-4ASKMRN during live race broadcasts to comment on events taking place on the track or offer an opinion on other pertinent issues.
Fans’ comments will air during Motor Racing Network broadcasts across all three of NASCAR’s top national series – Sprint Cup, XFINITY and Camping World Trucks. The Fan Forum Hotline … at 1-844-4ASKMRN … 844-427-5676 … will also be available during the network’s weekly programming.
“Over the years, our fans have relied on Motor Racing Network to provide them with the best broadcast coverage of the sport they love,” said MRN President and Executive Producer David Hyatt. “With the introduction of the Fan Forum Hotline, our listeners now have the chance to be heard and join us as the collective ‘Voice of NASCAR.’”
The announcement was made today during MRN’s exclusive radio coverage of the NASCAR weekend at Richmond International Raceway, which will feature the ToyotaCare 250 XFINITY Series race on Friday and Saturday’s Toyota Owners 400 in the Sprint Cup Series.
The Fan Forum Hotline will complement the new MRN App that was introduced earlier this year – giving fans unprecedented access to Motor Racing Network content and now, the means to voice their opinion.
“This is one more way to initiate a conversation with our listeners,” Hyatt said. “They’ve heard us and now, we hear them. A vibrant, informative dialogue with the fans during our race broadcasts and other programming adds volume to the ‘The Voice of NASCAR.’”
In February, Motor Racing Network kicked off its 46th year by introducing the MRN App, available for free on Apple and Android devices. Motor sports fans on the go stay in the know with comprehensive coverage of NASCAR, drag racing and dirt-track action from multiple series.
They can 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 are available, too, from MRN.com.
In addition to the Fan Forum Hotline, NASCAR fans have the opportunity to interact with the MRN broadcast crew through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as part of the MRN App. There is 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.
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.
