Racer's Edge set for TNN debut.

HARRISBURG, N.C. - A new motorsports-themed show is preparing for launch in the coming months on The National Network (TNN). Racer's Edge is scheduled to debut on July 6 at 11 a.m. Eastern and Pacific Time.

Racer's Edge is a new 30-minute show that gives an inside and detailed look at the workings of race car preparation, maintenance and set-up. Topics will explore commonalities in preparation, maintenance and set-up in various forms of motorsports, everything from drag strips to dirt tracks, motorcycles to NASCAR. A guest for interaction and expertise will accompany host Troy Selberg during each show.

Selberg is a racing industry veteran, mainly NASCAR. He's a second-generation racer with more than 20 years experience. Selberg gained and retained a great deal of knowledge throughout the years and now plans on relaying it to racing fans across the country. As a NASCAR Winston Cup Series crew chief, he was in contact with thousands of fans. It was that type of interaction in addition to his natural communication ability that made him the obvious choice to host Racer's Edge.

Racer's Edge promises to be the highest quality instructional/educational racing show on television. Each show will be geared towards one or two specific topics, allowing the host and guest to go in-depth, leaving no corner unturned. Each show will be shot on location in a race shop, lit like a studio, with countless racing props in the background. Having a controlled environment is the key in order to stay consistent and remain focused on production content. Hands-on visuals and will play a large part in the success of the show and, when necessary, state of the art 3D animation will be used to further enhance production.

NeWave Productions will produce Racer's Edge. NeWave offers an award-winning staff of producers, camera operators and editors with a passion for the racing industry.

NeWave has been committed to all forms of racing since 1994 and it is still the main thrust of their business today, most recently, producing the IHBA on TNN in '02.
