ASN and ARCA have reached a multi-year agreement to broadcast the ARCA Racing Series beginning April 9 from the Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville.

ASN will broadcast nine events, including five live races this season.

“We are excited to once again bring racing to our viewers through ASN,” said Doron Gorshein, COO of Sinclair Networks Group. “ASN’s coverage will include some of the series’ best short track races, designed to showcase ARCA Racing Series action from the tour’s ’bullrings, including both one-mile dirt events at DuQuoin State Fairgrounds and Illinois State Fairgrounds.”

The five live events begin May 22 with the Menards 200 from Toledo (Ohio) Speedway followed by Madison (Wis.) International Speedway on June 19, Winchester (Ind.) Speedway on June 26, Berlin (Mich.) Raceway on Aug. 6 and Illinois State Fairgrounds on Aug. 21.

In addition, ASN will produce a series of motorsports events to air midweek during prime time. All five live events will re-air during this time slot as well.  Time-shifted events from Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville, the DuQuoin (Ill.) State Fairgrounds and both Salem (Ind.) Speedway events will air during that block.

“We are pleased to provide additional exposure of the ARCA Racing Series on American Sports Network,” said Mark Gundrum, ARCA Vice President for Business Development and Corporate Partnerships. “This is a great opportunity for the teams, sponsors and fans of the series.”
