With over a quarter million views to date, SpeedVideo’s live broadcast of the NMRA Drag Racing World Finals delivered on its promise as the largest live stream video in NMRA history.
This event took place at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and is the most popular all-Ford drag race and car show of the year, where you can spot everything from 3,000+ horsepower turbocharged beasts to street legal racecars. Spectators enjoyed all-day entertainment thanks to the races, burnout contest, car show, swap meet, vendor booths, and even special appearances from TV star BoostedGT and 14-time drag racing champion Mike Murillo.
This year, four records were broken at the World Finals and it drew over 450 racecars and 490 show cars, resulting in the largest NMRA event in over 18 years- and it needed a video crew of equal capabilities to stream it to multiple media outlets.
“We were delighted to get the opportunity to work with the NMRA…it’s a first-class organization,” said Steve Grein, General Manager, SpeedVideo. “With the support of ProCharger, we did the live broadcast with a five-camera shoot, including dual wireless starting line cameras, and the broadcast went off without a hitch. Not only did we broadcast it live to SpeedVideo.com and StangTV.com, but also simultaneously on Facebook. It’s great to see hundreds of thousands of Ford fans all over the world that enjoyed watching the event.”
“SpeedVideo’s live broadcast was a huge promotional tool for the event. They provided great coverage of the event the entire time, and great follow up videos afterward,” said Rollie Miller, NMRA General Manager. “It really helped build the NMRA brand and spread awareness to the public of the NMRA.”
Up next for SpeedVideo is the of the 21st Annual World Cup Finals: Import vs. Domestic which will be streaming live November 4th through the 6th on speedvideo.com.
