AMA Pro Racing Announces Remaining 2004 SPEED TV Broadcast Schedule

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (April 20, 2004) -- AMA Pro Racing today announced the SPEED TV broadcast schedule for the balance of the 2004 AMA Chevrolet Superbike Championship season.

As part of SPEED TV's effort to increase viewership, the network has created a more consistent programming block which will result in an improved overall road racing programming schedule. SPEED TV will broadcast races on the Sunday afternoons of each event weekend and as part of its popular "Two-Wheel Tuesday" program.

The 2004 television package features all remaining AMA road racing events in the Chevrolet Superbike Championship presented by Parts Unlimited, Pro Honda Oils Supersport Championship presented by Shoei and Lockhart-Phillips USA Formula Xtreme classes. AMA Repsol Superstock racing highlights will also be shown as part of SPEED TV's Formula Xtreme programming.

"The television package SPEED TV has put together gives us a great degree of overall coverage for 2004," AMA Pro Racing Vice President, Commercial Development John Farris said. "The new TV package allows for regularly scheduled broadcasts in programming blocks and helps build consistency among our growing fan base."

The remaining 2004 Superbike broadcast schedule includes live coverage from both rounds at Barber Motorsports Park and Pikes Peak International Raceway. Live coverage continues at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Sunday rounds of double-header weekends at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Road Atlanta, and the season finale at Virginia International Raceway. Races not shown live will be tape-delayed as part of SPEED TV's Sunday afternoon broadcast schedule.

"Seven live Superbike broadcasts, in addition to the live Daytona 200 coverage we received, give millions of SPEED TV viewers a great chance to experience to excitement of AMA Pro Racing's top class as it happens," Farris said. Currently, SPEED is available in nearly 65 million U.S. and Canadian households.

Additionally, SPEED will feature live coverage of Supersport Championship races from Infineon Raceway, Pikes Peak International Raceway and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Races from Road America, Brainerd and Virginia International Raceway will be same-day tape broadcasts with all remaining rounds shown as part of SPEED TV's "Two-Wheel Tuesday."

Formula Xtreme races will be coupled with Superstock highlights during the "Two-Wheel Tuesday" lineup or as part of Sunday's race programming.
