Multi-Year Agreement Brings Unprecedented Coverage To Grassroots Racing
FloSports Becomes Premier Destination For Dirt Racing Fans With Combined Offering Of United States Auto Club Racing and Tony Stewart Programming on The FloRacing Platform
AUSTIN, Texas (January 30, 2020) – Motorsports magnate Tony Stewart has awarded streaming rights of the iconic Eldora Speedway and the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 to FloSports, a leading sports streaming and original content network. The multiyear partnership brings more than 60 nights of racing action to the FloRacing platform, which already includes the full slate of United States Auto Club (USAC) events across the country. With the full schedule of USAC events already available on FloRacing and now Stewart’s high-profile dirt-track racing entities, FloSports has firmly established itself as the premier destination for dirt racing fans.
“I’m passionate about dirt racing and grassroots motorsports in general, and there’s no better way to access some of the greatest racing in the country than with FloRacing,” said Stewart, who has owned Eldora Speedway since 2004 and the All Star Circuit of Champions since 2015. “While I’m obviously partial to Eldora Speedway and the All Star Circuit of Champions, I’m a spectator and a competitor at dirt tracks all over the country and I see firsthand the level of talent that’s out there. And now you can see that same talent on your TV, tablet and phone. If you can’t physically be in the grandstands at a race, FloRacing has you covered. I’m extremely excited about this partnership and appreciative of the commitment Mark Floreani and his team are making to motorsports.”
“We’ve found an incredible partner in Tony Stewart to help us bring dirt racing to a global audience,” said Mark Floreani, CEO, FloSports. “He is both a visionary and an accomplished entrepreneur who shares our mission to grow grassroots motorsports. We are honored to work with him and his team as we continue to build a platform that will raise the profile of dirt-track racing among all race fans.”
The addition of All Star Circuit of Champions and Eldora Speedway programming brings two of motorsports’ most respected franchises to the FloRacing platform. Carved from a cornfield in 1954, Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, has become a leader in motorsports growth and sustainability. The half-mile dirt oval hosts some of the most prestigious grassroots racing events in the world, and 2020 marks its 67th consecutive season of racing. FloRacing will be the exclusive worldwide provider for the 26th Dirt Late Model Dream (June 4-6) and the 50th World 100 (September 10-12), among other high-profile races on Eldora’s robust racing docket. And for the competitors who call Eldora their home track, FloRacing will also live stream every Eldora Championship Series event for the dirt late model, modified and super stock divisions, bringing unprecedented live coverage of local racers and their efforts.
The All Star Circuit of Champions is one of the oldest traveling sprint car organizations and a staple of grassroots, open-wheel racing. It boasts a slate of 55 events across 11 states in 2020 with a season-ending points fund totaling $258,000 with the series champion earning $65,000.
The complete schedule of All Star Circuit of Champions events that will be broadcast on FloRacing is available at www.allstarsprint.com. Eldora’s 2020 schedule, which includes two appearances by the All Star Circuit of Champions, will be released in the near future at www.eldoraspeedway.com.
After a 21-year career winning races and championships in Indycar and NASCAR, Stewart remains true to his dirt-track roots, scheduling nearly 100 sprint car races a year since retiring as a full time NASCAR driver at the conclusion of the 2016 season. And for those who miss seeing him behind the wheel of a NASCAR stock car, they can follow him via FloRacing beginning with the All Star Circuit of Champions’ season opener Feb. 5-6 at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida.
