RacerTV returns to the airwaves this Sunday with coverage of the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series and the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship.
The newly expanded 52-week television package airs Sundays on NBC Sports Network, beginning in April and running through March, and will be brought to viewers by television sponsors Can-Am, Amsoil and Rocky Mountain ATV*MC.
The 2012 RacerTV schedule kicks off April 22 with the opening round of GNCC in River Ranch, Fla., and includes a whopping thirty-two episodes of GNCC Racing—featuring 13 ATV shows, as well as six bonus episodes featuring the popular Women’s ATV, 4X4 Utility and UTV classes.
“This new 52-week TV package provides some of the best coverage RacerTV has ever seen and we’re excited to be a part of it,” said RacerTV Producer, Jason Hooper. “Although our schedule takes a break in August for the airing of the Olympics, we expect to see an increase in exposure for not only our racers and sponsors, but the sport as a whole.”
In addition to the action-packed race coverage most have come to expect, RacerTV will also showcase a behind-the-scenes look at some of racing’s most interesting figures—from inside the factory semi to dramatic pit stops—viewers will get the full effect of raceday. Can-Am and Amsoil return to RacerTV once again this season to bring specialized features to the TV show, while Rocky Mountain ATV*MC is welcomed to the program for the first time this year and will also provide exclusive features throughout the show. Tune into NBC Sports Network every Sunday evening for RacerTV’s newest spin on off-road and motocross racing.
The 13-round 2012 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series (motorcycle and ATV) is America’s largest and most successful off-road racing series. For more information, click here.
