The Saturday night A,B and C mains will continue to be on MAV :(



Do you not get MAV?

The FloRacing news is great for me. I appreciate that RacinBoys were pioneers (I even worked on their website at one point), but their prices for preliminary coverage were not something I could justify.

It isn't in my cable package, but it might be available to stream. It doesn't look like it though.

Wasn’t the RacinBoys Chili Bowl week basically what a full year of FloRacing goes for? I just signed up for $150 and I think that’s close to what it was.

Yes, it was something similar to that, $30-$35 per night. For now, consolidation is good for the fans' wallets.

I am wondering if this Flo deal for the Chili Bowl and ASCS, both properties that are affiliated with Lucas Oil, could signal that they will become the partner for the Lucas Oil dirt late models next. It's starting to seem like everything is consolidating down to FloRacing and DIRTVision, with Flo taking the more series the better approach.

I don't know. Lucas has invested heavily into their own TV productions. They'll have all their late model races on Lucas Oil TV in '21.

They were awfully proud of their stuff with those prices.

It feels like consolidation is finally coming to streaming media.

I'd forgotten about that announcement. I don't understand why they didn't retain rights to the ASCS races then, if they intend to build out that platform and stay independent.

I may be mistaken on this. But I don't think Lucas owns the ASCS, just sponsors them. Unlike the late model series, they own it.

He’s racing at Millbridge next month too.

Pretty cool how it came together, sounds like Briscoe couldn’t run for DiaEdge anymore at Haas and he referred them to Elliott. He and the group backing him sound pretty grounded as far as expectations so it should be fun to see.

When Hendrick was talking about Larson's extra racing he said Chase was going to do some also and he had some races already scheduled. Looks like with the swag showing up the same day as the announcement, it's been a done deal for awhile. Makes me wonder if he has been practicing a bit under the radar. He might do pretty good.

I like his hooded sweat shirts. Now I have 3 cars to root for... Larson, Bowman, and now Elliott. That is going to be awesome. Hopefully Larson and Bowman are giving him some pointers.

Yeah for me Bell also, and a rookie named Buddy Kofoid. He had a really good year for his fist shot at it. Chris Windom, Tyler Courtney, there are so many good drivers.

Kofoid ran 7th at the Chili Bowl last year as a rookie and both Larson and Bell have talked up how good he is. I wouldn't be surprised if he's competing for a podium spot this year.

This bunch are worth watching for a podium along with Larson and Bell. Full timers, USAC National Midget standings.

Sweet did pretty good last year, looked real fast until he was wiped out in the Wed A feature. He has a score to settle and I bet he is drooling over the fact that he could become a Chili Bowl winner to go along with his WoO championship in the same year.

Has anyone heard what the fan capacity might look like? I'm sure a state like Oklahoma will allow some fans but just generally curious as to how many.
