SPEED Channel to air all 2006 Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear events

March 9, 2006 -- Pacoima, California. With the opening round of the 2006 Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear fast approaching, Series President Gary Rodrigues revealed the SPEED Channel broadcast schedule featuring prime-time weekend time slots and shorter tape-delays for this season.

"We are extremely pleased to continue working with SPEED Channel to present some of the most exciting racing in the world," Rodrigues said. "In 2005 we expanded our coverage from 30-minte programs to one-hour shows dedicated to each event which allowed us to present more of the personalities that make this the most competitive development series in North America. We look forward to continuing this format in 2006 and improving exposure by having the events air closer to their corresponding race dates."

SPEED Channel coverage will consist of 12 one-hour broadcasts following each event on a tape-delayed basis, with seven shows scheduled for Sunday afternoons and five set to air on Saturday afternoons. The first race broadcast, from the opening round of the championship at Sebring International Raceway, is scheduled to air on Sunday, April 9th at 4:00 PM Eastern Time.
