TOLEDO OH (1-6-02) -- ARCA RE/MAX Series officials have released specific air dates and times for 17 televised events in 2003 earmarked for SPEED Channel and The Outdoor Channel and announced a date change for the series' May race at Lowe's Motor Speedway to Thursday May 22.

SPEED Channel's RE/MAX Series programming schedule includes 10 races live while three others will be same-day or next-day delayed. The Outdoor Channel will air ARCA programming on a tape-delayed basis.

Live RE/MAX Series races on SPEED include the season-opening 40th annual Advance Discount Auto Parts 200 from Daytona on February 8, Atlanta Motor Speedway, both events at Nashville Superspeedway, Kentucky Speedway, both Lowe's Motor Speedway events, the July race at Pocono Raceway, Winchester Speedway and Salem Speedway in September under the lights for the first time. June events at Pocono and Michigan Int'l Speedway will be aired same-day in primetime pm slots while the September race at Talladega Superspeedway will air in primetime the next-day. In addition, the May 10th race at Kentucky, billed as the Channel 5-205, will air live locally in the Cincinnati, Ohio market on the NBC affiliate WLWT, which is also title sponsor of the event for the second consecutive season.

The Outdoor Channel, on a tape-delayed basis, will air RE/MAX Series races from Toledo Speedway, Kansas Speedway, South Boston Speedway and the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds dirt-mile. In addition, 'ARCA Racing This Week', a weekly news-magazine show dedicated exclusively to ARCA racing will air on The Outdoor Channel in 2003 for the fourth consecutive season with another 26-week run.

In related news, the May event at Lowe's originally scheduled for May 17 has been moved to May 22 to coincide with NASCAR Winston Cup Bud Pole Qualifying for the Coca-Cola 600 with live SPEED Channel television coverage. <pre> 2003 ARCA RE/MAX SERIES TV SCHEDULE
