MAVTV To Air Speed Sport Winter Heat Sprint Car Showdown In February


Race fans wanting to get a racing-fix prior to the start of Florida Speedweeks will be able to do so when MAVTV airs coverage of the inaugural Winter Heat Showdown Feb. 5 and Feb. 12.

SPEED SPORT Productions captured all of the action from five nights of 410 winged sprint car racing during the Winter Heat Showdown at Arizona’s Cocopah Speedway and will present it as a pair of one-hour television shows recapping the action.

Winter Heat Showdown Part I, which will feature the first three nights of racing, will air at 7 p.m. E.T. on Thursday, Feb. 5, while Winter Heat Showdown Part II, focusing on the final two nights of on-track action, will be shown the following Thursday night (Feb. 12) also at 7 p.m. ET.

SPEED SPORT Magazine Publisher and veteran motorsports play-by-play announcer Ralph Sheheen will call all the action with National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver Brad Doty providing expert analysis. SPEED SPORT columnist Dave Argabright will serve as pit reporter.

“Sprint car racing from the desert Southwest is the perfect way for us to begin our new season of ‘SPEED SPORT’on MAVTV,”said Sheheen, who was recently named the National Sprint Car Poll Media Member of the Year. “With fans and racers preparing to kick off the traditional racing season during Florida Speedweeks these shows offer a timely showcase for some of the best sprint car racers in the world to strut their stuff.”

Drivers competing in the Winter Heat Showdown include Steve Kinser, Joey Saldana, Danny Lasoski, Paul McMahan, Rico Abreu, Kyle Larson, Brian Brown, Dale Blaney and Aaron Reutzel.
