NASCAR Announces 2011 Developmental Series

Programming On SPEED

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 15, 2011) – NASCAR announced Friday programming for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series and NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour on SPEED.

The broadcast calendar includes 24 events for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, NASCAR's top developmental series, which consists of series championships in the East and West. The races will air on Thursdays at 6 p.m., beginning April 21 with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West season-opener from Phoenix International Raceway, which was run on Feb, 24. The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East opener from Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway – run Saturday, April 2 – will air on April 28.

In addition, SPEED will broadcast live the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour/NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour combination race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Wednesday, Aug. 24, and the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, Sept. 24.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series schedule also includes the annual combination event at Iowa Speedway, which will be held on May 21 and air on June 2.

 “The NASCAR K&N Pro Series and NASCAR Whelen Modified Tours feature some of the top up-and-coming talent in the sport competing alongside the top veterans who are synonymous with these series,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR managing director of racing operations. “SPEED's coverage of the series provides a great platform to showcase these drivers,”

SPEED, in conjunction with NASCAR Media Group, will air each NASCAR K&N Pro Series tape-delayed race as a one-hour show. SPEED, with its popular and wide-ranging coverage of NASCAR, is the nation's first and only cable television network dedicated to automotive and motorcycle racing, performance and lifestyle.

SPEED's coverage will conclude with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West finale from Phoenix (race date is Nov. 12; air date is Nov. 17).

As previously announced, SPEED will also air the Denny Hamlin Charity Race, a NASCAR Whelen All-American Series late model event, live from Richmond International Speedway on Thursday, April 28. SPEED broadcast the two days of the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown from Irwindale, Calif., live in January.
