(Racing Electronics named Official Radio Supplier)
HARRISBURG, NC : U.S. Legend Cars International (USLCI) and Racing Electronics have entered into an agreement that will make the industry-leading two-way racing communications provider the exclusive vendor and service supplier in the category at any INEX sanctioned event.
USLCI also announced that two-way radios for competitors and teams will be permitted for the first time in INEX sanctioned events in 2017. Approved package can be found at www.racingelectronics.com/INEX
“Racing Electronics is excited about our new partnership with US Legend Cars International and the opportunity to provide our two-way communications solutions to the drivers and teams in this great series,” said Andrew Daines, CEO of Racing Electronics. “We also believe in bringing race fans closer to the on-track action, and for the first time, fans of this series will be able to listen to in-car communications.”
Racing Electronics will be offering USLCI competitors the “INEX Special,” which includes two Motorola two-way radios, a helmet kit, a headset and a Solo III one-way receiver. The INEX special is available on RacingElectronics.com/INEX , the RE Company Store in Concord, N.C., and trackside, beginning with the Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Thursday Thunder at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The INEX Special will be offered to USLCI competitors for $999.95, nearly $500 off standard pricing.
Racing Electronics trackside locations at Summer Shootout, Thursday Thunder, and select marquee USLCI events will sell additional scanners, headsets, and accessories for fans wishing to listen in to the competitors’ in-car chatter.
In addition to providing two-way communications solutions, Racing Electronics will also become a contingency sponsor at the Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Qualified weekly divisional winners will receive $50 in Racing Electronics store credit, and Summer Shootout Series Champions will receive $500 in store credit.

All frequency transmissions must be UHF analog only. Encryption or scrambling of the signal is not allowed. Frequencies must be made available to INEX upon request.
Two way radios & car wiring harnesses such as the “USLCI special” kit offered by Racing Electronics are recommended.
