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.

With SpeedVideo, drag racing fans all over the world will be able to enjoy the same excitement as those in person in HD with studio-quality audio.
“Miller Brothers Productions’ commitment to pitting some of the fastest domestics against some of the fastest imports in the world makes this a must see event,” said Tom Bobolts, SpeedVideo General Manager. “We couldn’t be happier to be working with them for the next three years, and we’re excited to bring the action LIVE to the entire world. We’ve got some great new things planned for this event this year that should make it the most exciting broadcast of the WCF yet.”
Over the course of the past couple of years, the partnership has proven more than successful, racking up astronomical views on SpeedVideo.com as well as leading social media platforms.
“We have been extremely pleased with the live coverage SpeedVideo has produced for the Haltech World Cup Finals and look forward to continuing our relationship in the future,” said Jason Miller, Event Promoter. “For this year’s WCF event, we have added a second manned scaffold right beside the quarter-mile stripe so cameras can pan the action all the way to the finish line! Miller Brothers Productions and SpeedVideo.com are going to offer our fans live coverage that will take our broadcast and event to the next level!”

Throughout the month of March, the SpeedVideo team traveled across the United States live broadcasting eight different drag racing events. The broadcasts were streamed to SpeedVideo.com and leading social media platforms, reaching racing fans all over the world. The month was proven successful – with the events racking up over 2.7 million views and 16.2 million minutes of viewing time.
The total audience for the month of March 2017 includes:
Outlaw Street Car Reunion at Memphis International Raceway is one of the most highly anticipated small tire events in the country. “SpeedVideo put our event in front of thousands of people that could not make it in person– whether it be because of travel logistics, work, or even those in different countries that love our sport of drag racing,” said Tyler Crossnoe, Outlaw Street Car Reunion Promoter. The Outlaw Street Car Reunion’s broadcast alone drew in roughly 600,000 total views.
SpeedVideo’s March 2017 Events:
SpeedVideo’s live drag racing broadcasts will continue throughout 2017, covering events from the NMRA, NMCA, Dirty South, PDRA, Redemption, Outlaw Armageddon, Shakedown at the Summit, Miller Brothers Productions, and more. View the events in HD at www.speedvideo.com.
Power Automedia is excited to announce a multi-year broadcast partnership with Bill Bader’s famous Summit Motorsports Park to live stream the “Summit Racing Equipment Shakedown at the Summit presented by Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels.” Held September 14-17, 2017 in Norwalk, Ohio, the “Shakedown” is a legendary door car and radial event that is entering it’s 15th year.
“Shakedown at the Summit” is one of the largest drag racing events of the year with some of the fastest door cars in the world. The colossal $150,000+ combined purse includes the $66,600 earmarked for the event’s quickest and fastest category, Pro Mod, with $40,000 of that awarded to the winner, which, in 2016 was Flash Fiscus, who motored his turbocharged Mustang to a 5.97. Other categories contested include Outlaw 10.5, Outlaw Limited Street, Top Sportsman, X275, Pro Street, Ultra Street and Open Comp. It all takes place at Summit Motorsports Park, which has been named “Track of the Year” 16 times by the NHRA, NMCA, and IHRA, and draws over 500,000 attendees annually.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with SpeedVideo for the Summit Racing Equipment Shakedown at the Summit presented by Mickey Thompson, and we’re confident it will be beneficial to our beloved event. We are extremely proud of this event and the caliber of drivers and cars that it offers, and having a livestream allows us to share them with even more people,” said Mary Lendzion of Summit Motorsports Park. “While we would always rather have racers and race fans at our track, having a live HD broadcast will ensure that those who aren’t able to be there will still be able to take in all of the action as though they were, and hopefully make plans to join us for next year’s event.”
“We are very excited to add an event like this to our already impressive 2017 line-up. Having such an awesome event at such a prestigious track is always a formula for success,” said Steve Grein, SpeedVideo’s General Manager. “Norwalk will, no doubt, fill the stands and SpeedVideo will make it available live to everyone in the world not lucky enough to see it in person.”
