ASA Executive Vice President Brian Robbins expresses his enthusiasm regarding the sanctioning body’s new television production partnership. “With the introduction of the Vortec Red ASA 5700 engine and BFGoodrich radial tires to stock car racing, it only seems appropriate that we incorporate the state-of-art services of the nation’s largest producer of motorsports programming. We are pleased and look forward to working with Patti Wheeler and everyone at World Sports Enterprises.”

Veteran announcers Steve Byrnes and Rick Benjamin will call all the action from the broadcast booth beginning Sunday, March 26 (12:00 Noon-2:00 PM, ET/PT) from Lakeland, Fla.
