Corona, CA (June 14, 2018) – For the 5th season, MAVTV will air the Summer Shootout Series - starting Thursday, June 28 airing at 8:30am ET and again at 11:30am ET, from the world famous Charlotte Motor Speedway. The wheel-to-wheel action will once again take place under the lights on a specially-built quarter-mile oval right in the middle of the Speedway front stretch.
The 8-race series will feature the lean and very quick Legend Cars. Each car is technically-identical from engine, to weight, to tires, which makes precise car set-up and sharp driving skills as the key to victory lane.
Legend Cars, originally introduced at Charlotte over 20 years ago, are the largest single class of racing cars that have ever competed anywhere in the world. The strict technical specifications for every car are precisely the same across the country and well beyond.
This division’s colorful fiberglass bodywork is meant to evoke classic NASCAR machines from the very earliest days of the organization ... but the results are all very much up to date.
Driving Champions like Kurt and Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Austin Dillon, Bubba Wallace, and Ryan Blaney all have their roots in racing Legend Cars.
As part of the Summer Shoot-Out Series MAVTV will also air Bandolero Racing - a turnkey, spec-series racer designed for drivers of almost any age. Bandoleros serve as a stepping stone between a 1/4 Midget, kart and a race car.
MAVTV Motorsports Network is available on DIRECTV, Charter Spectrum, Verizon FiOS, Optimum, Suddenlink, CenturyLink Prism, Mediacom, Buckeye Broadband, fuboTV and many other cable providers across the US and Canada.
