SpeedVideo And Drag Illustrated Partner To Live Broadcast World Doorslammer Nationals And Main Event

SpeedVideo and Drag Illustrated have announced a multi-year partnership to live broadcast the Drag Illustrated World Doorslammer Nationals presented by CTech Manufacturing, and the Drag Illustrated ‘The Main Event’ on the SpeedVideo network.

The Drag Illustrated World Doorslammer Nationals is set to take place March 6-8, 2020 at Orlando Speed World Dragway in Florida with insane Pro Stock and Pro Mod Shootouts taking center stage. The winners in both Pro Stock and Pro Mod will take home $50,000, and with this inaugural event taking place at the beginning of the race season there is expected to be a large number of big name NHRA competitors participating in both classes.

“With the race taking place a week before the NHRA Gatornationals, the Drag Illustrated World Doorslammer Nationals gives the star competitors in Pro Stock and Pro Mod a chance to start their season off right,” explained DI’s Mike Carpenter. “They will have the potential for career-best performances and a shot at a huge payday – plus a massive spotlight on two premier doorslammer classes.”

“We love the vision that Richard Freeman from Elite Motorsports, and Wes Buck, Mike and the Drag Illustrated team has created here,” explained James Lawrence, SpeedVideo’s CEO. “To bring this Pro Stock and Pro Mod action to SpeedVideo is a dream come true for us, this will be an awesome event and a great opportunity to bring behind-the-scenes action to our SpeedVideo viewers.”

“SpeedVideo is far and away the leader in drag racing live streaming,” said Wes Buck, founder and editorial director of Drag Illustrated. “I’m looking forward to this new partnership, so it’s a no-brainer to have them involved in what will soon be the biggest doorslammer drag race in the history of the world. The SpeedVideo guys are trailblazers, which is something both Richard Freeman and Elite Motorsports and myself and Drag Illustrated relate to,” said Buck. “We’re excited to have them producing a world-class live streaming experience for our fans and marketing partners.”

Full live event coverage of the World Doorslammer Nationals in live HD will be available on SpeedVideo.com for annual or monthly subscribers. The World Doorslammer Nationals will have two qualifying sessions on Friday, followed by three more on Saturday, and eliminations will be taking place on Sunday. Free content will include select Thursday interviews, testing, and select qualifying sessions.

The Drag Illustrated Main Event 2020 will be hosted at Bandimere Speedway on July 31-August 1. More information is coming soon regarding that event.
