Schedule Includes Seven Stops of the New Sioux Chief Showdown
CORONA, Calif. (December 20, 2019) – With its recently announced three-year extension to remain the majority broadcast partner of the ARCA Menards Series, MAVTV has announced that it will provide exclusive live broadcast coverage of 12 events during the 20-race championship heading into the 2020 season. As part of these dozen races, the Motorsports Network will showcase seven stops of the new 10-race Sioux Chief Showdown being introduced for 2020, in which the best drivers of the ARCA Menards Series, as well as the ARCA Menards Series East and West, converge for a super series of the most promising stock car talent in America.
MAVTV’s 12-race broadcast schedule will kick off Sunday, April 19, with action from the half-mile, 33-degree-banked Salem Speedway in Salem, Indiana. Following a second live broadcast from famed Michigan International Speedway on Friday, June 5, MAVTV will showcase nine consecutive races throughout the heart of season next summer. The final MAVTV broadcast will take place on Saturday, September 26, under the lights at Memphis International Raceway in Millington, Tennessee. This will not only serve as the penultimate stop on the 2020 schedule, but also the inaugural Sioux Chief Showdown championship race.
"With an action-packed lineup of races from some of the most exciting racetracks in America, from superspeedways and road courses, to door-banging short tracks and dirt ovals, MAVTV will showcase the best of what the ARCA Menards Series has to offer in 2020,” stated Jason Patison, MAVTV Programming Director. “ARCA has been a great partner and we’re very happy to continue the relationship.
