For the third consecutive year, the Motor Racing Network (MRN) will offer live coverage of the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 at Martinsville Speedway on Oct. 5.
Veteran announcers Dave Moody and Kyle Rickey will call the action from the booth, with Ford Martin in the turns and Woody Cain and Hannah Newhouse providing inside analysis and pit reporting.
“We are very happy to announce that MRN will once again broadcast the ValleyStar Credit Union 300,” said Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell. “Martinsville Speedway is proud to host the most prestigious Late Model race in the country and having MRN once again bring its award-winning coverage to our event only enhances the experience for our fans, partners and competitors.”
Southern Trust Home Services, Woodall Auto Mall and the Lester Group, Inc. came together to make the broadcast possible on MRN and its Digital platforms.
Last year’s broadcast of the race featured the most fans to ever tune into live coverage from the event on MRN’s digital platforms.
“MRN is pleased to once again be a part of this great event at Martinsville Speedway, said Motor Racing Network President Chris Schwartz. “This event has grown in popularity every year on our various broadcast platforms and with the new format changes and level of competition entered for this year’s ValleyStar Credit Union 300 should only make this event bigger and better this year. We look forward to broadcasting another great race at Martinsville Speedway this Saturday.”
In addition to being heard online, through MRN.com, the race will be broadcast locally and on select affiliates nationwide.
