CHARLOTTE, NC (June 9, 2017) – For the third consecutive year, the marquee event in U.S. Legend Cars competition will once again have a live broadcast presence. LegendsNation.tv will host the 2017 Bojangles’ Summer Shootout live stream for all ten rounds of the Legend and Bandolero car event held on the frontstretch at Charlotte Motor Speedway, now entering its 24th season. The first two rounds take the green flag this Monday and Tuesday, June 12th and 13th.
LegendsNation.com began a partnership with U.S. Legend Cars International last fall which commenced with the Road Course World Finals at Dominion Raceway in Thornburg, Va. Over the 2017 season, the leading news site for all things related to USLCI has expanded its LNTV platform to cover events from coast-to-coast, including Winter Nationals in Florida, the INEX Showdown in Las Vegas, and the Battle at the Big Top at Texas Motor Speedway.
This year’s Bojangles’ Summer Shootout coverage will be available at no extra charge to monthly LNTV subscribers whether they choose to watch live or on-demand. The production will mimic the video experience at the track, featuring images from Speedway TV and commentary from the speedway announcing team of Steve Post and Tony Stevens with Lenny Batycki handling victory lane and trackside assignments.
“We’ve been extremely pleased with our partnership with LegendsNation and feel it’s only appropriate that the most prestigious Legend and Bandolero event of the year has them involved on both the news and production side for fans and families of U.S. Legend Cars racing,” said Laila Razmyar, Events and Communications Manager for U.S. Legend Cars International. “Since the launch of LNTV, the feedback we have received from competitors and fans has been overwhelming. We can think of no one better to assist us in bringing Legend and Bandolero racing to the next level than LegendsNation.”
LegendsNation.com was originally launched in 2007 as a news and entertainment website around Legend car racing. Since that time, it has changed owners on two occasions and is now owned and maintained by long-time Legend car enthusiast Brian Nagy. Nagy partnered with Pit Row Media to create the LNTV platform in the fall of 2016.
“We’ve been working behind the scenes to slowly build LegendsNation.com to the news and content site it had the potential to become back in 2007,” Nagy said. “With the addition of live and on-demand video, it has become the go-to source for all things related to Legend, Bandolero and Thunder Roadster racing. We have rebranded the site as the place competitors, families and fans come to see industry news, trends and relevant content they ask for, including live and on-demand race broadcasts like the Bojangles’ Summer Shootout. We hope this is the next step in a long partnership not only with USLCI, but also with Charlotte Motor Speedway.”
Each broadcast of the Bojangles’ Summer Shootout will begin no later than opening ceremonies of each race night, approximately 7pm ET. To view live (or on-demand) video of the event, users can point their browsers to www.legendsnation.tv.
In addition to the live stream from LNTV, Speedway TV will once again produce a 30-minute highlight show each week airing on national cable and satellite television network MAVtv. Cable and satellite users are encouraged to upgrade their subscriptions if they do not currently subscribe to MAVtv through their cable or satellite provider.
