HOLLY, Mich. – Must See Racing Sprint Car Series officials, in conjunction with SPEED SPORT TV, have announced live streams for two premier events this season at Lucas Oil Raceway near Indianapolis.

Both the Engine Pro Fast Car Dash on May 9 and the Indy Summer Nationals on May 20 will be streamed to a worldwide audience through SPEED SPORT TV, as a star-studded field including four-time defending series champion Jimmy McCune, Ohio veteran Charlie Schultz and more take aim at the .686-mile oval.

The Engine Pro Fast Car Dash event will be a full-points race for the Must See Racing field, featuring the series’ unique Dash format highlighting the top eight qualifiers, while the Indy Summer Nationals will be a $4,000-to-win, non-winged special event that is not a part of the season-long championship fight.

Must See Racing public address announcer Jacob Seelman will serve as the lead voice for the SPEED SPORT TV livestream broadcast, with additional voices to be named at a later date.

The May 9 event will see the Must See Racing sprint cars joined by the Midwest Compact Touring Series and Super Trucks, while the June 20 event card also features the Midwest Supermodified Series, Super Cup Stock Car Series and the Midwest Compact Touring Series.

“We’ve enjoyed a tremendously fruitful television and media partnership with SPEED SPORT through the last few seasons and to add another step in that relationship by live-streaming two of our biggest events of the year is something all of us at Must See Racing are really looking forward to,” said Must See Racing President Jim Hanks. “Our fans are among some of the most passionate in all of racing and to be able to provide them this platform to watch both of these premier events at Lucas Oil Raceway is a big moment for everyone involved as we race into a new decade.

“We look forward to both our winged stop at Lucas Oil Raceway on May 9 and our non-winged special event there on June 20, as they’ll both be shows that fans locally and watching from afar won’t want to miss!”

This year’s races mark the first time since 2012, and just the second time overall, that Must See Racing has sanctioned sprint car racing at Lucas Oil Raceway.

Brian Gerster won the previous Must See Racing winged appearance at the Clermont, Ind., facility.

As for non-winged racing, the June Must See Racing Summer Nationals special will end a nine-year drought for wingless sprint cars at the historic short track.

Bobby Santos won a USAC event at LOR in 2011, the last time non-winged sprint cars competed there.

The pair of live-streamed events mark a natural extension of Must See Racing’s successful multi-year television partnership with SPEED SPORT, which looks to continue into the new decade this season.

“After many years of working with Must See Racing at events like the Little 500, as well as many of their biggest winged races in the Midwest, to bring The World’s Fastest Short Track Cars to television viewers nationwide, we couldn’t be more excited to help showcase two of their biggest events for the upcoming season through our SPEED SPORT TV platform,” said SPEED SPORT President Ralph Sheheen. “Lucas Oil Raceway is an outstanding venue for sprint car racing and has put on great racing through the years, and we look forward to telling the stories of these two events through our SPEED SPORT TV cameras.”

Those cameras will capture and transmit the live broadcast through a variety of broadcast platforms, allowing viewers to experience the events on a platform they prefer.

Viewing platforms include watching on the SPEED SPORT TV website or through the SPEED SPORT TV app, available on iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire, and Google Chromecast. Fans can watch on their computers, mobile devices or TVs.

Pricing details and special offers for the Engine Pro Fast Car Dash and Indy Summer Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway will be released in the near future.
