SpeedVideo and Street Car Takeover Enter Partnership To Broadcast Street Car Takeover Charlotte 2020

Murrieta, CA, March 3, 2020SpeedVideo 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 and Drag Illustrated Partner to Live Broadcast World Doorslammer Nationals and Main Event



Murrieta, CA, Feb 4, 2020SpeedVideo and Drag Illustrated have announced a multi-year partnership to live broadcast the Drag Illustrated World Doorslammer Nationals presented by CTech Manufacturing, and the Drag Illustrated ‘The Main Event’ on the SpeedVideo network.

The Drag Illustrated World Doorslammer Nationals is set to take place March 6-8, 2020 at Orlando Speed World Dragway in Florida with insane Pro Stock and Pro Mod Shootouts taking center stage. The winners in both Pro Stock and Pro Mod will take home $50,000, and with this inaugural event taking place at the beginning of the race season there is expected to be a large number of big-name NHRA competitors participating in both classes. 

“With the race taking place a week before the NHRA Gatornationals, the Drag Illustrated World Doorslammer Nationals gives the star competitors in Pro Stock and Pro Mod a chance to start their season off right,” explained DI’s Mike Carpenter. “They will have the potential for career-best performances and a shot at a huge payday – plus a massive spotlight on two premier doorslammer classes.” 

“We love the vision that Richard Freeman from Elite Motorsports, Wes Buck, Mike, and the Drag Illustrated team has created here,” explained James Lawrence, SpeedVideo’s CEO. “To bring this Pro Stock and Pro Mod action to SpeedVideo is a dream come true for us, this will be an awesome event and a great opportunity to bring behind-the-scenes action to our SpeedVideo viewers.”

“SpeedVideo is far and away the leader in drag racing live streaming,” said Wes Buck, founder and editorial director of Drag Illustrated.  “I’m looking forward to this new partnership,  so it’s a no-brainer to have them involved in what will soon be the biggest doorslammer drag race in the history of the world. The SpeedVideo guys are trailblazers, which is something both Richard Freeman and Elite Motorsports and myself and Drag Illustrated relate to,” said Buck. “We’re excited to have them producing a world-class live streaming experience for our fans and marketing partners.”

Full live event coverage of the World Doorslammer Nationals in live HD will be available on SpeedVideo.com for annual or monthly subscribers. The World Doorslammer Nationals will have two qualifying sessions on Friday, followed by three more on Saturday, and eliminations will be taking place on Sunday.

SpeedVideo.com and Virginia Motorsports Park Announce Multi-Year Agreement to Broadcast Shakedown Nationals XVIII


Murrieta, CA, Jan 26, 2020 – Virginia Motorsports Park (VMP) hosted the Shakedown Nationals for the first time last year, a world-class track providing a surface for every type of class. Shakedown Nationals features the best of Pro Mod, Radial vs World, Limited Drag Radial, X275, Ultra Street, Outlaw 10.5, and DXP 235. VMP has always been the location for events that are entrenched in the history of drag racing and Shakedown added to that history by bringing several new records with last year’s event.

Power Automedia and SpeedVideo.com are proud to announce that they will be broadcasting the Shakedown Nationals XVIII with a multi-year agreement.

“The first year of Shakedown Nationals definitely exceeded my expectations. From the energy of the crowd to the performances on the track, the entire event was something special,” explained Tyler Crossnoe, VMP’s Vice President. In 2020 we expect to see more great fans and racers. Our goal as a racetrack is to provide top-tier entertainment both on and off of the track. With an event like Shakedown, the on-track action is very exciting and the midway not only provides support for the racers but provides the fans with more entertainment.”

SpeedVideo.com will be broadcasting all of the exciting action from the COMP Cams Shakedown Nationals XVIII on September 16-19 so viewers from all over the world can see every second of the breathtaking multi-class racing.

SpeedVideo is Moving to a Subscription Model in 2020

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.

SpeedVideo to Live Stream Huge $100,000-to-Win World Series of Pro Mod Race for 2019-2020



MURRIETA, CA —  POWER AUTOMEDIA’s SpeedVideo and Wes Buck, founder of the $100,000-to-win World Series of Pro Mod race, have teamed up to broadcast exclusive live stream access of the event as it unfolds.


The World Series of Pro Mod, heralded as the “Biggest, Richest Pro Mod Drag Race in the History of the Known Universe,” began in 2017 and will continue with its third running on August 9-10, 2019. Developed by Drag Illustrated’s Wes Buck, the invite-only event delivers high tension and huge horsepower as 32 contestants battle it out for a winner-takes-all $100,000 prize.


Now, SpeedVideo will be providing a high-quality, professionally produced live stream of the event for the foreseeable future as an exciting, multi-year relationship has been established. For fans unable to attend the race at Bandimere Speedway near Denver, Colorado, SpeedVideo’s commitment to bringing the non-stop action to every corner of the globe via online access is an incredible opportunity to witness history in the making and must not to be missed.


“Since day one, our goal with the World Series of Pro Mod has been to take the sport of drag racing to new levels,” said Buck, founder of the prestigious once-a-year shootout. “We work hard to find innovative ways to promote our drivers and build stars, and this is a massive step in the right direction for our racers, our fans, and our sponsors. I’m very excited for this next chapter for the WSOPM.”


Wes Buck’s unique promotion of his event has quickly catapulted it to the forefront of racing prestige, making the relatively new race one that drivers are desperate to be a part of and enthusiasts can’t stop watching. Both SpeedVideo and the World Series of Pro Mod have been established as leaders in their respective markets, and harnessing the power of the two brands together promises a partnership unlike any ever seen before.


“In just two short years, Wes Buck and the team at Drag Illustrated have taken the World Series of Pro Mod from wild idea to one of the wildest races of the year. It really shows their commitment to Pro Mod racers and fans alike,” said Tom Bobolts, SpeedVideo’s General Manager. “Combining big names, big money and lots of drama, this race represents something special. We love what Pro Mods represent, and couldn’t be happier to work alongside Wes, Drag Illustrated, and Bandimere Speedway to create a dream team bringing this event to millions of fans worldwide.”


Taking drag racing and coverage of the sport to the next level, the World Series of Pro Mod and SpeedVideo working together means viewers will have the best seat in the house, no matter where they’re located, for the historic third running of the $100,000-to-win race as well as future iterations of the event. Don’t miss the action on August 9-10, 2019.

SpeedVideo 2019 Live Stream Schedule: The Biggest, Baddest, Most Exciting Racing Season Yet


MURRIETA, CA —  POWER AUTOMEDIA’s SpeedVideo has announced its official schedule for the 2019 drag racing season, and the year promises to be the most exciting one yet.

Coverage of FL2K will be new for 2019, and a multi-year agreement has been put into place for continued live broadcasting of the No Mercy, Lights Out, and World Series of Pro Mod events.

We’ve added races never before seen on SpeedVideo to the schedule and continued our partnerships with the most respected series and independent promoters in the country,” said Tom Bobolts, SpeedVideo General Manager.


SpeedVideo’s dedication to delivering drag racing direct to fans is only made possible through partnerships with the baddest events on the planet. “No Mercy 9 was our first time working with SpeedVideo, and the crew delivered a professional live stream feed which we hadn’t had before,” shared Donald Long of Duck X Productions. “We’ll be working directly with SpeedVideo to cover all three of our events at South Georgia Motorsports Park for 2019 and beyond – Lights Out X, the Sweet Sixteen 2, and No Mercy X – and we can’t wait to get the party started.”


“It seems only fitting that the ‘Biggest, Richest Pro Mod Drag Race in the History of the Known Universe’ be available to the masses by way of the industry’s leading live streaming service – SpeedVideo,” added Wes Buck, founder of the $100,000-to-win Pro Mod shootout in Colorado.

TX2K is the original “2K” event in the United States, and one of the largest racing events in the entire country, drawing over 20,000 fans each year. TX2K grew from a Toyota Supra-specific meet; and now, other than hundreds of Supras, you can spot anything from supercars to turbocharged daily drivers. What makes TX2K unique is the event has many dimensions – roll racing, drag racing, dyno runs, and the “after dark” car meet full of bikinis, burnouts, and beer.

“TX2K was created 18 years ago with the sole purpose of having an event strictly focused on fast street cars,” said Peter Blach, founder of TX2K. “It started as a Supra-only event and has grown to feature Lamborghinis, GTRs, Supras, Vipers, ‘Vettes, Porsches, and more. Our goal is to grow the event into the largest single gathering of fast street cars in the world. SpeedVideo’s live broadcast will bring TX2K to those who can’t attend in-person and will add to our fan base even more.”

“TX2K is an absolut860043_610470715634856_1469222782_oely enormous event – probably the largest supercar and fastest street car race in the world,” said Aaron Hahn from SpeedVideo. “To broadcast this to the world is a unique opportunity that we are incredibly excited about.”

So far, the racer list for TX2K17 consists of many 1,500+ horsepower cars, including multiple noteworthy platforms such as the almighty Nissan GTR, twin turbo Lamborghini, Toyota Supra, twin turbo Viper, and multiple 1000+ horsepower street cars – this is just a glimpse of what TX2K is all about.

“We are very proud to bring this unique event into every home, computer, tablet and phone with an internet connection,” said Steve Grein, General Manager of SpeedVideo. “Thanks to cutting edge technology, we plan on showing every round of racing combined with feature stories for the viewing audience to feel the live experience in high definition. Bringing the biggest and best to our viewers is important and there is no question that TX2K is one of the best events out there!”

Power Automedia Leverages Facebook Live To Explode Online Audience for SpeedVideo & Publications

FacebookViews 2

Power Automedia has recently been using Facebook’s new live stream video feature, Facebook Live, to explode the audiences of SpeedVideo and it’s twelve online magazines.

There has been a 616 percent growth in mobile video consumption since 2012 and, studies show, people watch videos three times longer when they are being recorded live. There’s no denying this media trend will only increase in popularity from this point.

SpeedVideo.com – Power Automedia’s live broadcast division – has utilized Facebook live to “stream” automotive events to success – reaching over 200,000 viewers on Facebook alone with the 2016 Outlaw Armageddon No-Prep Drag Race at Thunder Valley Raceway Park. In addition, they received over 15,000 shares just on Facebook alone within a week of the event.

Power Automedia employee Dave Cruikshank, Editor of Corvette Online, has leveraged Facebook Live with recent show coverage, some reaching over 4,000 viewers at a time.

“I utilized Facebook Live at two of the biggest Corvette shows in the world and had fantastic results,” Cruikshank said. “The best part about Facebook Live is that it really engages the audience and lets them interact with what they’re experiencing. The comments section literally comes alive with feedback and emoticons. It was great to be able to tailor my shoot to what people wanted. Traffic to CorvetteOnline.com and Facebook boomed as a result.”

Just recently, the editors of Turnology, EngineLabs and LSX Magazine have seen the impact. Trevor Anderson of Turnology gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at Bruce Meyer’s private car collection in Los Angeles. “I have a goal of using Facebook Live to establish relationships with my readers and to provide a face to associate with my magazine,” Anderson said. This gives great opportunity to businesses like Power Automedia to connect with their fans, have engaging conversations, and get to know their audience on a personal level– all while reaching new audiences as well. Plus, we get a lot of referral traffic to our magazines as a result of the live experience.”

One thing is clear – the use of Facebook live has been a hit for Power Automedia and SpeedVideo.

Southern Speed Promotions and SpeedVideo.com enter Partnership to Live Broadcast the Outlaw Street Car Reunion for 2017 and Beyond in HD

OSCR-SVMemphis 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.

Mark Samples, Crossnoe’s partner, is excited about the opportunity to grow the event with SpeedVideo’s support, “We are excited to partner with SpeedVideo to bring forth the most modernized live broadcast for 2017.  SpeedVideo’s newest wireless cameras will bring an exciting effect to the event with our two exciting announcers, Al Tucci and Brian Lohnes. 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!”

You can experience all of the wheel standing action in person at Memphis International Raceway on March 22-26, or watch it online at www.speedvideo.com to see everything in stunning HD. Make sure to visit http://www.oscr.us to stay updated on all the Outlaw Street Car Reunion information.

SpeedVideo.com & Bradenton Motorsports Park announce Multi-Year Live Broadcast Partnership, including U.S. Street Nationals & Snowbird Outlaw Nationals


Murrieta, CA, July 11, 2016Bradenton Motorsports Park is equally well known for its sunny year-round location near Tampa, Florida, popular drag racing events, and stellar track surface. Two of the most popular events at “BMP” are the Snowbird Outlaw Nationals and the U.S. Street Nationals, held annually in December and January of each year. Power Automedia and SpeedVideo.com are proud to announce that they have entered into a multi-year partnership with Bradenton Motorsports Park to live broadcast these events for 2016 and beyond in “HD” with studio-quality audio.

SpeedVideo’s James Lawrence knew this track was high on the priority list from day one. “When we first launched SpeedVideo.com, I circled Bradenton Motorsports Park on our schedule, because I knew that there are few track operators as good as Alan and his team. Not just good promoters, but good people. And these two events, the US Street Nationals and Snowbirds, they are really events that have exploded on the national and worldwide scenes.”

SpeedVideo.com will broadcast the Snowbird Outlaw Nationals, December 2-4, 2016; and the US Street Nationals in late January 2017, both in high definition HD for the thousands of viewers at home that can’t travel to Florida for the event.

“We’ve experienced success with live broadcasting our events already, and we feel that this relationship with SpeedVideo.com will help take our events promotion and picture quality to the next level,” explained Chervitz. “We can’t wait to see the fans reactions all over the world when they are able to watch this event in HD in their living rooms and see everything the US Street Nationals and Snowbirds have to offer.”

SpeedVideo.com & DigNight announce Multi-Year Live Broadcast Partnership, including DigNight @ NRG NFL Stadium June 24-25

DN Speedvideo

Murrieta, Apri 11, 2016DigNight 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.”

SpeedVideo.com to offer FREE HD Live Stream for Bounty Hunters No-Prep Grudge Nationals


Murrieta, CA – March 11, 2016 – SpeedVideo.com’s charter is to become one of the leading online destinations for race fans to watch live and on-demand automotive events. Part of that experience is providing an outstanding viewing experience. High production values often mean multiple cameras, on-air talents, and an HD viewing experience. Those are the hallmarks of a live event broadcast, yet they’ve remained out of reach for most automotive events except for professional series. It’s understandable as the cost of live HD broadcasting with high production values are high.

“We have been trying to solve this problem working with many successful race promoters,” said SpeedVideo’s James Lawrence. “When you talk to the promoters, they want to offer an amazing live streaming video experience for fans at home, but it comes with the risk of high expenses, and potentially affecting spectators that might attend their events. Spectators of course, help support the racers purses and keep the event viable. Well, I think we’ve solved that with what we call a ‘hybrid free/pay per view’ model.”

“We will be bringing HD and better production values to the viewers who want that upgraded viewing experience via a reasonable pay per view, but also at most events will simulcast the live stream in standard definition for free. This makes sense for the promoters that work so hard to promote these events, and also for the fans at home who just want a better video experience.”

How it will work for most events is simple: Standard definition will be broadcast for free, while an HD broadcast will be available for a fair, reasonable pay per view fee, typically from $6.95 to $19.95 for the entire weekend. “We are partners on the broadcasts with the promoters,” explained Lawrence,” with the promoter earning a share of the pay per view that helps support the event, pay race purses and expenses. Some promoters may not choose to broadcast in HD, while others may choose to do Pay Per View only. Ultimately, it’s up to the promoter depending on what makes the most sense for their fan base, event, and racers.”

To kick off the inaugural SpeedVideo live broadcasting event, SpeedVideo will be offering the HD Pay Per View for FREE at the Speed Society Bounty Hunters No-Prep Grudge Nationals March 11-12, 2016; as well as additional select 2016 events. Starting in the Fall of 2016; we expect most events will be available in the hybrid “HD” dual broadcast.

SpeedVideo streaming events can be watched on your favorite devices. Visit www.speedvideo.com to watch and learn more.

SpeedVideo and Radial Fest announce Live Broadcast Partnership including April 29-30, 2016


Radial Fest has become one of the hottest events on the drag radial tour thanks to it’s outstanding track conditions and beautiful weather, both spring and fall. Records have fallen each and every year at Huntsville, including the first three-second run ever by a radial tire, and this year, SpeedVideo.com and Dragzine.com are proud to announce a multi-year partnership with Radial Fest to live stream broadcast it’s events.

“We knew that we needed to live broadcast Radial Fest, because fans all over the world have been asking us to bring the show into their living rooms,” explained Radial Fest’s marketing director Zach Jones. “We feel like Speedvideo was the right partner for us because of their commitment to help us promote the event. Our sponsors want the exposure, and we know they will produce an outstanding broadcast. There are some exciting announcements upcoming that will really change the game.”

“Radial Fest is an event that is extremely popular among the fastest radial racers in the country,” said Dragzine’s Andrew Wolf. “Because this event hasn’t gotten the national exposure via a live broadcast, it will be very exciting to partner with the Radial Fest team and see where this event can go over the next several years.”

“At every Radial Fest event there has been a three-second pass and some sort of world record set, whether it’s in Radial vs The World, X275, or Outlaw 275,” said Jones. “This year, we will continue to build on our past success by working to increase purses and improve the overall experience for both racers and fans.”

Make plans to be in Huntsville to experience it all firsthand, or tune in April 29-30, 2016, when Speedvideo.com will be presenting the live broadcast.


SpeedVideo to Live Broadcast Outlaw Armageddon No Prep Invitational August 19­-20, 2016 at Thunder Valley


SpeedVideo.com, in conjunction with THE Drag Racing Magazine, Dragzine.com, to LIVE BROADCAST the ORIGINAL, and WORLD’s Biggest No­-Prep Race, the highly­anticipated Outlaw Armageddon in Thunder Valley, OK.  “We are extremely excited to be able to partner with SpeedVideo.com to bring our event to the internet,” explained Thunder Valley’s Nick Duty. “Just as Outlaw Armageddon revolutionized No Prep Racing last year, SpeedVideo.com will help us take the event to another level for our fans.”

“The demand to have Outlaw Armageddon available for live broadcast has been overwhelming,” explained SpeedVideo.com’s James Lawrence. “Not only will fans be able to watch round­by­round coverage, but they will also have inside access to the driver’s meeting and instant replay’s of action on the track. This will be the closest you can be to the excitement without sitting in the stands.”


“The inaugural event was amazing, but ‘Outlaw Armageddon – The Second Coming’ promises to be bigger and better,” said Duty. “We have more than doubled the purse to over $80,000 and given every racer in the country the opportunity to be part of one of the largest heads­up races in 2016 by entering one of our four classes. We have opened the competition up to include 200 racers.”

Outlaw Armageddon is a one­ of ­a ­kind experience. Not only are they bringing together the toughest racers in the country, but they’re doing it in the heart of the legendary 405 with a flashlight start. The inaugural event was an overwhelming success, with over 18,000 fans packing into the track from 38 different states. For this year’s event the track and the promoters have vowed to go bigger and better. The race has been expanded to include Big Tire and Small Tire Invitational races, along with the popular “Race Your Way In” class and the Outlaw Street and True Street classes.

In 2016, the fans got to voice their opinion on which drivers should be included in both Invitational classes, and with over one million votes cast, the lineup is even more amazing than last year. Not only have all of the favorites returned to the lists, like Big Chief, Murder Nova, Daddy Dave, Boosted GT, Doc, and Monza, but fans have added such names as Jeff Lutz, Larry Larson, Petey Smallblock, Brian “Chucky” Davis, Mike Murillo and James “Birdman” Finney to the lineup. The tagline for the event is “Often Imitated, but Never Duplicated”, because nothing can compare to being deep in the 405, in the cozy confines of Thunder Valley Raceway, with unprecedented access to the baddest racers in the world.

Show up in Thunder Valley to experience it all first hand, or tune in August 19­20, 2016, when www.Speedvideo.com & www.Dragzine.com will be presenting the live broadcast of Outlaw Armageddon. For more event information, visit www.outlawarmageddon.com
