Cayuga ARCA RE/MAX 250 Marks Debut of ARCA Racing Radio Network

TOLEDO OH (6-25-08)--Live, streaming audio will be broadcast from Cayuga Motor Speedway this Sunday as the ARCA Racing Radio Network debuts on www.arcaracing.com.

Officials from ARCA and ACME Branding Company have jointly announced that the Cayuga ARCA RE/MAX 250 will mark the first of seven events webcast on arcaracing.com. Live streaming audio coverage of the Cayuga ARCA RE/MAX 250 is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Eastern on Sunday afternoon, June 29th. Content includes a 30 minute pre-race show followed by a live audio broadcast of the race, which marks the series' first appearance to Canada in 16 years and the 10th of 21 events on the 2008 series schedule.

"We have decided to test live audio at the seven remaining events that will not be broadcast live on national television," said Mark Gundrum, VP of Marketing and Communications for ARCA. "We believe that the combination of live timing and scoring and an audio webcast will provide comprehensive coverage of ARCA Racing, second only to live TV."

Team Glock Racing, primary sponsor of the No. 37 Spraker Racing Chevrolet driven by Dexter Bean, has entered into a multi-faceted agreement including title sponsorship of live-to-web timing and scoring, presenting sponsorship of live race audio and presenting sponsorship of ARCA's weekly "Inside ARCA" radio broadcast, which streams live on arcaracing.com Tuesday nights from 7-8:30 p.m. Each of these arcaracing.com enhancements is free to website visitors.

The live audio call of ARCA RE/MAX Series race events will serve as an enhancement to the live-to-web arcaracing.com timing and scoring feature that debuted at the 2008 ARCA 200 at Daytona in February. Plans call for audio broadcasts from ARCA RE/MAX Series races at Cayuga (6/29), Berlin (7/26), Pocono (8/2), Springfield (8/17), DuQuoin (9/1), Salem (9/13) and New Jersey Motorsports Park (9/28).
