RacerTV Announces 2012 NBC Sports Network Line-up
Morgantown, W. Va. (April 19, 2012) –RacerTV returns to the airwaves this Sunday with coverage of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series, the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship, the Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by Amsoil, and the Amsoil Championship Snocross Series. The newly expanded 52-week television package airs Sundays on NBC Sports Network, beginning in April and running through March, and will be brought to viewers by television sponsors Can-Am, Amsoil and Rocky Mountain ATV*MC.
The 2012 RacerTV schedule kicks off April 22 with the opening round of GNCC in River Ranch, Fla., and includes a whopping thirty-two episodes of GNCC Racing—featuring 13 ATV and 13 motorcycle shows, as well as six bonus episodes featuring the popular Women’s ATV, 4X4 Utility and UTV classes.
Coverage of the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series begins May 5 with the opening round at Aonia Pass MX in Washington, Ga., and concludes with the historic Loretta Lynn’s finale, airing December 9.
The fastest amateur motocross racers in the country return to RacerTV with special back-to-back episodes of the Red Bull AMA Amateur Motocross National Championship presented by Amsoil. The shows will feature the weeklong national event, taking place in August at the historic Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills Tenn.
The program will conclude with 8 back-to-back episodes of the Amsoil Championship Snocross Series, featuring the fastest snowmobile racers in the world as they take on custom-built motocross racetracks built from snow.
“This new 52-week TV package provides some of the best coverage RacerTV has ever seen and we’re excited to be a part of it,” said RacerTV Producer, Jason Hooper. “Although our schedule takes a break in August for the airing of the Olympics, we expect to see an increase in exposure for not only our racers and sponsors, but the sport as a whole.”
In addition to the action-packed race coverage most have come to expect, RacerTV will also showcase a behind-the-scenes look at some of racing’s most interesting figures—from inside the factory semi to dramatic pit stops—viewers will get the full effect of raceday. Can-Am and Amsoil return to RacerTV once again this season to bring specialized features to the TV show, while Rocky Mountain ATV*MC is welcomed to the program for the first time this year and will also provide exclusive features throughout the show. Tune into NBC Sports Network every Sunday evening for RacerTV’s newest spin on off-road and motocross racing.
