MAVTV LAUNCHES ‘LIVE’ BROADCASTS IN 2015 WITH 3 – HOUR LUCAS OIL CHILI BOWL FINALS
SATURDAY NIGHT, JAN 17 AT 8:30 – 11:30 PM ET.
Sarah Fisher, Kenny Wallace, Bryan Clausen, Kenny and Sammy Swindell will go head-to-head in the 29th running of the world famous Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals presented by General Tire at the River Spirit Expo Center, Tulsa, OK, January 13-17, 2015. With 326 entries and 318 drivers from 36 States plus Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, the final entry total will be the largest yet – and MAVTV will be on-hand to broadcast all the side by side action ‘live’ again this year.
Known as the Super Bowl of Midget racing – the 2015 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals gathers together the stars of American racing including Midget’s, Late Model Dirt, Super Modified, World of Outlaws, IndyCar, NHRA and NASCAR. Last year, when Brian Clausen denied Kevin Swindell his fifth straight title and took the chequered flag on the final lap, history was in the making with a new first time winner and 3-hour ‘live’ television coverage by MAVTV. Dave Despain hosted last year’s broadcast and will return again for 2015.
According to Bob Patison, President of MATV, “No one understands ‘grass roots’ racing like MAVTV. Last year’s Chili Bowl airing produced one of the highest rated shows on the network and we expect even better results in 2015.”
With programming such as the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl, Lucas Oil Drag Boats, Lucas Oil Off Road Racing, Late Model Dirt, Lucas Oil Modified, Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, the FIA World Rally Championship and Pirelli World Challenge, MAVTV has become the go-to place for motorsports fans. In addition to Dish Network and DirecTV satellite services, MAVTV is currently available on Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Verizon, Charter, along with many others.
