Murrieta, Apri 11, 2016 – DigNight Street Racing events were born from the love of street racing and fast cars, trying to put the most horsepower as possible into a car while still being able to drive it on the street. With an innovative event format, DigNight events have been exploading in fan and racer turnout on the streets of Texas. Power Automedia and SpeedVideo.com are proud to announce they have entered into a multi-year partnership with DigNight to live broadcast the DigNight events for 2016 and beyond, including two monster events for this year.
We are starting with a big one. For the first time ever, DigNight decided to the take drag racing to the next level, partnering with NRG NFL Stadium to host the biggest street race in the world. On June 24-25, 2016 the NRG NFL Stadium will host DigNight @ NRG; an event in Houston, Texas you don’t want to miss.
“There will be street racing by some of the fastest cars in the world, like Mike Murillo, Birdman, John Doe, Kye Kelly, and more.” said DigNight’s Jerrod Thompson, “Plus, we’ll have other great entertainment such as live music, mini races between rounds, tons of vendors, covered seating, a beer garden and VIP area. We are taking street racing to a whole new level.”
“If you could build an event that will lead itself to a monster live audience, you start with a drag race at an NFL Stadium, some of the biggest stars in the street racing world, and promotional geniuses like the guys at DigNight,” said SpeedVideo’s James Lawrence. “This is going to be a crazy, it’s going to be wild, and it’s going to be live. It was a no brainer for us.”
That’s not the only event on the schedule for 2016. Later in the year, the DigNight crew will be hosting the Lonestar Resurrection No Prep race with an astounding $100,000 payout in Big Tire, with equally impressive payouts in the other classes. Yes, $100,000. It all goes down Sept 16-17th at Royal Purple Raceway, and SpeedVideo.com cameras will be live and rolling all of the action in full HD for the fans that can’t be in the stands.
“We want to reach the masses with our branded DigNight Street Racing and No Prep events. If you can’t make it to the race, we are going to bring this style of racing to you,” explained DigNight’s Thompson. “Our racing is the future, and it has to be seen to be believed. To be the best, you have to work with the best, which is why we decided to partner with SpeedVideo for these live broadcasts.”
