"Elbows Up!" World of Outlaws Program Lifts Off Wednesday on Outdoor Channel

Norman, OK -- Dec. 15, 2005 -- There might be snow on the ground in much of the country, but that doesn't mean fans have less of an appetite for racing. With that in mind, the Outdoor Channel will debut its new trackside interview program "Elbows Up!" on Dec. 21.

In conjunction with National Speed Sport News, the first edition of "Elbows Up!" features hosts Johnny Gibson, the World of Outlaws announcer, and Brad Doty, who shares his unique perspectives during Outdoor Channel coverage of the series throughout the season. DIRT MotorSports VP of Race Operations Shane Carson, a former racer and promoter, also is featured as a special guest on the interview panel for the first edition.

In 2006, guests on "Elbows Up!" will include drivers, owners, sponsors and members of the media. The first edition airing at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday was taped during the season finale at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and will include segments with 2005 Top 10 racers Craig Dollansky, Terry McCarl, Daryn Pittman, Donny Schatz and Brooke Tatnell as well as 2006 racers Jeremy Campbell and Randy Hannagan.

DIRT MotorSports recently announced its off-season national Outdoor Channel television line-up with new feature programs leading up to the first 2006 World of Outlaws Sprint Series season race broadcast from the DIRT-owned Volusia Speedway Park during "Speed Weeks" in Florida beginning February 9. The off-season television line-up will lead directly into the 2006 schedule, which will include 34 race broadcasts and 16 feature programs for a total including rebroadcasts, of 150 hours of national television coverage on the Outdoor Channel.

Fans traveling to the World of Outlaws Sprint Series season opener at Volusia Speedway Park can watch the action during the second episode of "Elbows Up!" taped from the series' new state-of-the-art mobile media center. Four to five episodes of the trackside program are scheduled for 2006, in addition to a full slate of racing.

So while the anticipation is building for the 2006 season of the "Greatest Show on Dirt" fans can quench a bit of their thirst for racing by tuning into the Outdoor Channel at 8 p.m. on Wednesdays, with rebroadcasts on Fridays at 1 a.m. and Saturdays at 1 p.m. ET.
