MURRIETA, CA — SpeedVideo will be working with DUCK X Productions and Donald “Duck” Long who has gathered some of the biggest names in Radial versus The World as well as the Pro 275 classes for “COVID-8” – an event affectionately named in acknowledgment of the Coronavirus pandemic that has postponed numerous racing events – and will be taking place on May 22-23 at the Orlando Speed World Dragway.

“We’re all excited to be finally back racing and the COVID-8 shootout will be big,” stated SpeedVideo’s General Manager, Tom Bobolts. “Donald Long’s unique ability to draw the fastest racers on some of the best surfaces is well known. We can’t wait to have this race live on SpeedVideo.com. The live stream will be sponsored by FuelTech – a leading manufacturer of EFI systems and ignition components.”

“Everybody needs cars going up and down the racetrack. It’s important that these guys are out there racing,” Long says. “I’m looking for the best because I want to set the door-car world record for an 8-car field.” As of now the entry list for the COVID-8 include legends Steve Jackson, Melanie Salemi, Marcus Birt, Kevin Rivenbark, Mark Micke, Jason Richards, Justin Swanstrom, Scotty Gaudagno, and more. “It’s a strong list, man! I look down this list and these are some really strong racers,” Long proclaims.

Murrieta, CA, April 23 — Speedvideo to broadcast the Winter Meltdown 5 No-Prep Shootout this upcoming December 4-5, 2020.

According to Winter Meltdown 5 organizer Matt Plotkin of Project X Promotions, this will be a true no-prep event that will challenge both drivers and tuners to navigate the track.

“This is as no-prep as it gets! We’re removing 100% of the rubber and taking the track down to its barest surface by bringing in a bobcat with multiple blade attachments and scraping the track as far down to the concrete as possible. There is nothing closer to a real street racing surface than the 660 feet of bare concrete that you will experience here.”

Plotkin continued, “There are a few reasons that we are taking it to this extreme, but the main reason is that we feel like the term ‘no-prep’ is being stretched too far these days. When you start seeing tractors dragging the track and shoes coming off people’s feet at a no-prep race, it’s time to take a step back and remind everyone that these races are meant to try and simulate street-like conditions.”

Winter Meltdown 5 will feature Big Tire, Small Tire, True Street, King of the Tailgate, Full-Size Truck, 6.0 Index, 7.0 Index, and Junior Dragsters classes.

“Last year was our most successful Winter Meltdown event to date,” stated Plotkin. “We had the largest turnout of both racers and fans that we have ever had for our December race. This year we will be in a new location, and look forward to continuing on that upward trend to keep growing an event that has quickly become everyone’s favorite way to close out the no-prep racing season.”

“SpeedVideo has a long history with no prep racing and we’re proud that it will continue with the addition of Winter Meltdown 5 in 2020,” said Tom Bobolts, SpeedVideo’s General Manager. “As Matt said, we shouldn’t see too many shoes sticking to the track, but I know we’ll have viewers stuck to their screens.” 

Speedvideo.com will broadcast all of the exciting action from Winter Meltdown to annual or monthly subscribers. In addition, there will be free bonus content made available to non-subscribers.

Murrieta, CA, March 23, 2020 — SpeedVideo has entered into a broadcast partnership with the wildly popular automotive event series Street Car Super Nationals (SCSN) to live stream the Las Vegas and St. Louis events through 2022.

The COMP Cams Street Car Super Nationals 16 is coming to SpeedVideo on November 19-22 live from The Strip at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The legendary festival of speed is expected to draw more than 500 cars in 16 classes with everything from eighth-mile grudge cars to quarter-mile Pro Mods and everything in between.

For the third consecutive year, the event is utilizing all four of the facility’s expertly-prepared lanes with SpeedVideo providing complete coverage of drag racing’s true marathon event.

“We’re looking forward to working with SpeedVideo and Chad Reynolds,” said SCSN Promoter Mel Roth. “The Street Car Super Nationals is already a huge event. With SpeedVideo adding more camera angles and a dedicated host keeping our fans up-to-date and entertained as only Chad can, [this] will advance SCSN Las Vegas to another level!”

Summer Speed Spectacular featuring the Street Car Super Nationals will be taking place on August 14-15 live from St. Louis. Summer Speed Spectacular showcases the drag radial, Pro Mod, and the Nostalgia Drag Racing League classes. Chris Blair, World Wide Technology Raceway Executive Vice President and General Manager, went over the expectations for this upcoming year, “The event continues to grow and we expect a tremendous boost as it is now part of our St. Louis Speed Fest, and being able to work with SpeedVideo means that we get to showcase this amazing event to a greater audience of racing enthusiasts.”

“This event is one that appeals to young and old and we are excited to take another tremendous step in 2020,” said Chris Blair. “Racing enthusiasts can experience the thrill of nostalgia cars, the wheel standing action of drag radials and the ground-pounding excitement of Pro Mods all on the same day. It’s a unique event that everyone will love.”

“Street Car Super Nationals holds a special place in this industry,” said Speedvideo General Manager Tom Bobolts. “There are very few events that have stood the test of time and continued to grow each year. Now entering its 16th year in Vegas and St. Louis in its 7th year, these events continue growing and attracting a loyal following. We couldn’t be happier to be able to bring the experience LIVE to SpeedVideo subscribers.”

Murrieta, CA, March 6, 2020Horsepower Wars is back for 2020 with the popular $10K Drag Shootout, presented by Lucas Oil, that will sport a few rules changes this year to match the No Prep Edition update. 

Four teams will compete against each other to see who can build the quickest drag racing car over a period of 10 days, with a budget of $10,000 — which will consist of $3,000 in cash and a $7,000 Summit Racing Equipment gift card. During the competition, there will be surprise bonuses, competitions, and challenges that can assist, or hurt, the chances of each team’s ability to build their vehicle and win. Once the teams complete their build it’s time to go down to the track for heads-up racing where the team who proves they’re the fastest takes home $10,000 and their finished car. 

No Prep racing has been around for years and this season the Lucas Oil $10K Drag Shootout will be taking inspiration from this drag racing style. Track crews heat and scrape away all traces of tire rubber on the track, revealing an unforgiving bare street like surface. The ability to keep high horsepower beasts glued to an unprepped surface forces both the drivers and the builders to be at the top of their game. In previous seasons teams were required to use 275 drag radial tires. Taking into consideration the unruly track surface, the rules will be opened up to allow for larger sized slicks.

“It was really important that we continue to reinvent the $10K Drag Shootout,” stated Scott Parker, Power Automedia’s Vice President of Content. “The show should be every bit as exciting to the viewer as it is to us making it. In 2019 we had the return of Team Bigun – our Season 1 champs – as well as a few curveballs from the revamped $10K Olympics to the surprise Grenada wagon. Going to no prep style racing seemed a fitting way to change it up, while also attracting a whole new group of potential racers and builders.” 

The winning Team, Enemies Everywhere, will be returning from Australia for a chance to defend their title in the third season. Team Leader Jaime Farmer explained what he’s looking forward to in season 3, “We want to be the first team to win $10K Drag Shootout two years in a row, so we’re actually a bit more excited to be coming back this year than we were coming in for the first time. America has always been the top shelf when it comes to drag racing so for us to beat the best is really something else.” Farmer continued, “We really enjoyed the entire experience from being able to push our boundaries to going up against the best and making some really good friends.”

Horsepower Wars Season 3 will be made possible by its title sponsor Lucas Oil as well as ARPBMR Suspension, Comp Cams, Covercraft, Dyna-Batt, E3 Spark Plugs, Holley, Kooks Header, Lucas Oil, MAHLE Motorsports, Moroso, Moser Engineering,  NOS, PROFORM PartsPRW Industries, QA1Ron Francis, Summit Racing, SpicerTotal Seal, Victor Reinz, and more.

 

ABOUT HORSEPOWER WARS

Horsepower Wars is an automotive TV show featuring fierce competition between rivals that takes place in a variety of venues including: engine dyno, chassis dyno, drag strip, road course, and even an off-road short course. With no feel good trophies for second place, we travel the country having fun and stirring up trash talk between drivers, builders, and tuners.

Murrieta, CA, March 3, 2020 — SpeedVideo has entered into a broadcast partnership with the wildly popular automotive event series Street Car Takeover (SCT) to live stream the Street Car Takeover Charlotte 2020 event on June 26-27, 2020!

“Charlotte is our favorite event and really shows what Street Car Takeover is about,” said Chase Lautenbach, co-owner of Street Car Takeover. “This is our largest event of the season with the best event layout we offer. The Twin Peaks car meet that happens Thursday night is only a couple miles from the track and hotels with plenty of things for the family to do in the area.”

Street Car Takeover not only features drag racing, but roll racing as well. In roll racing, drivers line up 1,300 feet behind the burnout box, eclipsing the starting line at 35 to 40 mph, and the winner is determined by speed (miles per hour) not the elapsed time. There are three classes of roll racing at SCT Charlotte 2020: the 140 mph and 150 mph brackets where the speed cannot be exceeded, and the King Of The Bakery which has no trap speed limitation but vehicles must be street legal. Roll racing will be taking place on Friday, June 26th.

“We at SpeedVideo are super excited about adding Street Car Takeover to our SpeedVideo live schedule,” said Tom Bobolts from SpeedVideo. “SCT Charlotte has it all, a huge following and a great energy. We can’t wait to capture all of the action!”

Fans of drag racing won’t be disappointed because Saturday, June 27th is all about the 1320. Classes for Saturday include: Small Tire, Street Racer, Street Outlaw, Monster Clutches Stick Shift, Street Racer Mild, FWD Heads Up, Truck/SUV, Extreme Street, Daily Driver Mild, and Daily Driver Extreme.

Justin Kieth, co-owner of Street Car Takeover, went over the updates to the event this year, “We have The Sticky Mafia coming to prep this event so the track will be better than ever. This will make the event fast with cleanups and cars going down the track. We want the racers to experience the best-prepped surface we can possibly provide. We also added a Heavyweight class that requires the car or truck to be 4,200 pounds (without the driver) to make things even more interesting.”

Full live event coverage of the Street Car Takeover Charlotte 2020 event in live HD will be available on SpeedVideo.com for annual or monthly subscribers. There will be parts of the event that will be broadcast for free as well.

SpeedVideo is Moving to a Subscription Model in 2020 in Partnership with All of Our Event Promoters. Here is Why.

A joint letter written to the drag racing community from SpeedVideo and 14 leading drag racing promoters.

For many years, drag racing has been live streamed on the internet free of charge. The advances of technology and reasonably priced video equipment made this possible. Promoters often paid for the cost of the production, or shared the cost with the live streaming broadcaster. It was a reasonably workable system except for three major flaws:

  1. Live broadcasts were completely reliant on advertisers or the promoter paying for production costs. This limited both the quality of the production as well as how many events could be broadcast. Many broadcasts had huge audiences, but lost money.
  2. Promoters lost potential ticket sales from their events, which often costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce. For every person watching at home, a potential ticket sale was lost.
  3. Most new, smaller, or specialty events aren’t broadcast because there was no way to pay for them.

Watching drag racing for free seems like a win-win, but the free model isn’t that good for drag racing. After a great deal of evaluation of how to grow and improve live drag racing broadcasting, the best path forward was to create a subscription model. Event promoters and SpeedVideo who produce the broadcasts will be free to work together to create amazing broadcasts with higher-quality productions, and to expand and cover more events, with a model where each viewer pays a small amount, rather than trying to rely only on the backs of advertisers only.

The world’s biggest and best drag races will continue to be streamed on SpeedVideo – including Lights Out, No Mercy, Sweet 16, World Cup Finals, Outlaw Armageddon, TX2K, NMRA, NMCA, PDRA, Outlaw Street Car Reunion, UCC, Bounty Hunters, WoooStock, F2LK, Snowbirds, US Street Nationals, select Drag Illustrated events, and more to come. SpeedVideo subscriptions will be available for $24.95 per month, or $199 for the entire year ($149 introductory rate), which will get you access to around 40 of the premier live streamed drag racing events. The contribution each viewer makes will help grow drag racing, increase the quality of the broadcasts, and attract new promoters, events, and racers.

Moving SpeedVideo to subscription will benefit:

  • Promotors – a revenue share will allow them to grow their events, pay purses, and cover expenses.
  • Racers – more healthy events and racing series.
  • Viewers – higher-quality broadcasts and a wider variety of events.

We have all come together in agreement – this is the best path forward for the future of drag racing. This will enable each drag racing fan to get a great, high-quality broadcast but also keep the sport viable. We are hopeful that each drag racing fan will look at this like a step forward for drag racing and how this will contribute to the future growth of the sport. We all love drag racing and many of us do this not just for a living, but as a way of life. We appreciate all of your support.
