OSCR-SV

Memphis International Raceway has been the location for many legendary events that are entrenched deep in the lore of street car drag racing. The infamous Outlaw Street Car Reunion – referred to affectionately as ‘OSCR’ – adds to that history. Southern Speed Promotions has worked hard to grow the OSCR into a premiere small tire racing event that brings out the best racers in the world each spring. Power Automedia and SpeedVideo.com are proud to announce that they have reached a multi-year agreement with Southern Speed Promotions to broadcast one of the most exciting events in drag racing, the Outlaw Street Car Reunion for 2017 and beyond in “HD” with studio-quality audio.

“Our event has grown immensely in the past three years, and 2017 looks as if it could be one of the largest car counts to date,” explained Tyler Crossnoe, co-owner of Southern Speed Promotions. “Drag racing is a global sport that has millions of fans around the world and let’s face it — fans cannot attend every race that they want and still keep a job and family. This is where the live broadcast comes into play. We decided to work together with Power Automedia and SpeedVideo because their top quality HD broadcast and production value, studio-quality audio, and wireless cameras on the starting line will help us take this event to the next level.”

“Tyler and his team are one of the hardest working in drag racing,” said SpeedVideo’s James Lawrence. “I know first-hand because I raced at the Outlaw Street Car Reunion with our drag radial Camaro earlier this year. This event is a special one, that is quickly growing to rival the top events in drag radial and street car racing despite it’s relatively short history. We are proud to be partners with Southern Speed Promotions on a multi-year plan and we’re planning on helping them hand-in-hand to grow this event every year.”

SpeedVideo.com will be broadcasting all of the exciting action from the Outlaw Street Car Reunion IV on March 22-26, 2017… so fans from all over the world can see every second of the breathtaking radial tire racing.

Can you imagine strapping into your 4,000 horsepower monster in Radial vs. The World with a microphone in your face and Al Tucci getting you hyped up for the finals and $15,000 on the table?! It will happen in 2017!”
