Lingner Group Productions has completed a documentary honoring the 25th Anniversary of IROC. The first airing of the program will be this Sunday night at 9:00 PM ET on ESPN2.

This is a one hour program that looks though the history of one of sports first "made for TV" events. A simple concept presented by Roger Penske, Mark Donahue, and Les Richter has become a motorsports institution.

This program includes interviews with more than 25 IROC competitors. Drivers interviewed include early champions like Bobby Unser, Bobby Allison and Mario Andretti. The complete IROC library of 100 races was screened for this program, and that includes the inaugural season when the drivers competed in Porsches.

Many famous voices will be heard from the early days of motorsports on TV including Keith Jackson, Jim McKay, Al Michaels, Chris Economaki, and Jackie Stewart. Bob Jenkins, the current ESPN and ABC play by play announcer for IROC, is the host and narrator for the program. (11/15)
