CORONA, Calif. – Following Wednesday’s announcement of the future structure of the ARCA Menards Series, MAVTV has announced an extension of its partnership with ARCA.
MAVTV will broadcast the majority of the events on the tour’s 20-race national schedule for the next three seasons.
The partnership between the ARCA Menards Series and MAVTV dates back more than a decade, when select races were aired during the 2008 season. The current agreement began three seasons ago, when MAVTV showcased its first live broadcasts of the ARCA Menards Series during the 2017 schedule.
Since then, MAVTV’s role has continued to grow as the primary broadcaster of the series, culminating with a 12-race slate of live races for the current season.
With the newly announced extension, MAVTV will continue to serve in that role through the 2022 ARCA Menards Series season, where it will showcase the bulk of the championship races via exclusive live broadcasts.
“The 2020 season will mark the fourth year MAVTV and ARCA have partnered to bring the majority of the ARCA Menards Series race schedule live to MAVTV,” said Robert Patison, President of the MAVTV Motorsports Network. “It’s great race action on some of the nation’s best-known tracks.”
“MAVTV has been a tremendous partner for the ARCA Menards Series and we are thrilled to extend that relationship three more years,” added ARCA president Ron Drager. “2020 marks the beginning of a new chapter for ARCA, and MAVTV’s commitment to the series helps us deliver great racing action to fans across the country, while also providing an outstanding platform for our race teams and sponsors.”
