PENDLETON, Ind. (February 25, 2000) - The Nashville Network (TNN) and the American Speed Association (ASA) have agreed with the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service to broadcast a select number of 2000 ASA ACDelco Series races overseas. The agreement will allow American troops, servicemen and women in 170 different countries, from Albania to Zaire, the opportunity to enjoy ASA ACDelco Series.

The AFRTS signed an agreement that will allow them to access, record and distribute ASA ACDelco Series events to any of the 170 countries where servicemen and women are stationed. The AFRTS outlets receive programs via an encrypted satellite transmission. Except for the removal of dated material, all television programs are broadcast intact over low-power radiating stations.

"It's an amazing chance to expose the unique nature of ASA racing to a worldwide audience and to the fine young men and women who serve our country," said ASA spokesman Mike Miller. "This is a real positive outgrowth of ASA's relationship with TNN."

The first race of the 2000 ASA ACDelco Series season takes place March 26 at USA International Speedway in Lakeland, Florida. The BFGoodrich Tires 200 will be the first of 17 races TNN Sports will carry live in 2000.
