SPEED TV to offer 30 hours of AMA Superbike racing action
PICKERINGTON, Ohio--More than 30 hours of action from the AMA Superbike Championship presented by Parts Unlimited will be shown on SPEED TV in 2008, the American Motorcyclist Association has announced.
The coverage on SPEED launched with more than five hours of live AMA roadracing from Daytona, including the 67th Daytona 200 by Honda, and will continue through the final round of the series at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in October. Each race weekend, SPEED will air four hours of coverage, showing both Superbike races (when scheduled), the AMA Pro Honda Oils Supersport Championship presented by Shoei, and reports on the AMA Formula Xtreme Championship and AMA Superstock Championship presented by Dynojet.
Calling the action in the booth will be the experienced broadcast team of three-time World Champion Freddie Spencer and Ralph Sheheen, with Greg White reporting from the pits.
"If you can't be at the track, SPEED is the place to be on race weekends," said Keith Kizer, AMA racing senior director. "We're pleased to know that we'll be seeing Superbike action on SPEED in 2008 and in years to come."
"We look forward to a great season of Superbike racing under the final year of AMA stewardship and look forward to working with the Daytona Motorsports Group through their stewardship of American motorcycle racing next year and beyond," said SPEED Senior VP of Production & Network Operations Rick Miner.
