CONCORD, N.C. – Motor Racing Network – “The Voice of NASCAR” – is expanding its reach into the realm of digital media with Thursday’s launch of a mobile site that also provides access to the network’s full website at www.motorracingnetwork.com.
In addition to MRN’s extensive NASCAR race coverage, the new mobile site allows fans to stay abreast of breaking news; check race and broadcast schedules; and listen to podcasts and on-demand programming including exclusive weekly content streamed only at MotorRacingNetwork.com.
“Motor Racing Network has been the pace-setter in NASCAR coverage for decades,” said MRN Web Manager Craig Moore. “This launch enables us to keep pace in a digital arena that’s steadily growing. We’re glad to deliver a new product that’ll make it more convenient for fans to follow us throughout the new season.”
MRN’s 2012 broadcast schedule features 86 live events from 33 venues, including full coverage from Speedweeks in Daytona that will culminate with the 54th running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday afternoon. Motor Racing Network’s daily and weekly programming also is available on the new mobile site. NASCAR Live on Tuesday nights has begun its 29th year and NASCAR Performance Live airs each Wednesday evening.
In addition to MRN servicing a nationwide network of affiliate radio stations, all programming is streamed live at www.motorracingnetwork.com and is now accessible on mobile devices, as well.
Motor Racing Network’s 2012 schedule began last month with a live broadcast from the NASCAR Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and included around-the-clock coverage of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. It will conclude in December with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Banquet in Las Vegas.
MRN’s Speedweeks 2012 coverage continues Thursday with a live broadcast of the Gatorade Duel at Daytona qualifying races, beginning at 1 p.m. (EST). That kicks off a stretch of five races over four days including season openers in the NASCAR Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series. The weekend concludes with Sunday’s Daytona 500, opening race of the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Joe Moore and Eli Gold will anchor the MRN broadcast from Daytona International Speedway. Air time is 12 p.m.
