NOVEMBER, 4, 2016 (Harrisburg, NC) - For the first time, U.S. Legend Cars International will be partnering with LegendsNation.com (LN) to bring more racing content into your home through LegendsNation TV (LNTV). Starting with the 2016 Road Course World Finals at Dominion Raceway next weekend, LN will be on-site and live streaming the feature races for those who can't make it to the event.
This partnership will continue through the 2017 season, bringing consistent coverage to many major USLCI and INEX events across the country. An assortment of content options will be made available for Legends, Bandolero and Thunder car enthusiasts including various live events and on-demand viewing of not only races, but additional content such as instructional and technical videos also. Affordable, all-inclusive monthly and per-event packages are anticipated to be available as early as December. A full pricing and content structure will be available prior to Winter Heat at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The team behind LegendsNation and LNTV is no stranger to the USLCI community and have been serving its members for a number of years already. Prior to his purchase of LegendsNation from its former owner in 2015, owner Brian Nagy was a staff member for the site and also ran his own motorsports news platform while covering major USLCI events such as LegendStock in New York, Thursday Thunder in Atlanta and the famous Bojangles' Summer Shootout in Charlotte. To assist with the new addition of multimedia content to LN, he will be working closely with Pit Row Media, owned by Tony Stevens who is one of the announcers at Charlotte during the Bojangles' Summer Shootout.
As a perk, all of LN's content will be multi-platform friendly. Whether users want to watch on their home computers, laptops, iPads or mobile devices (including Android, iPhone and Windows Phone), they will be able to consume their favorite scale racing content anywhere in the world their device has an internet or data connection.
"Over the past year, LegendsNation has done great work within the USLCI community. It's a respected news source, dedicated on keeping followers informed. They have a strong presence, and have shown us just a glimpse of what they can do with streams from the Charlotte Motor Speedway Fifth Mile, and the final round of Atlanta Motor Speedway's Thursday Thunder," says Laila Razmyar, Communication and Events Manager for US Legends Cars International. "We're really excited to see what joining forces will do for us, LegendsNation, and all those involved in the sport."
"We have some big plans to make LN the hub for all things USLCI-related from stories and results to video and broadcast content," said Nagy. "Like any venture, we will need the support of the community for it be sustainable. The more the members support what we do, the more we can support what they do, and I believe most competitors would agree this is definitely something the community wants and needs. We're also working with USLCI and their partners to offer additional benefits for subscribers such as product discounts on the things they use each week to race."
To kick off the partnership, the LegendsNation crew will be streaming the feature events for free from Dominion Raceway on Sunday, November 13, through their Facebook page with on-demand viewing available both through the social media network and on their website at LegendsNation.com. In addition to the race stream itself, additional planned content is also on the docket including post-race, highlights and more.
