SALISBURY, N.C. — The inaugural SPEED SPORT Challenge May 21 at Millbridge Speedway will be produced by SPEED SPORT Productions and will be televised on MAVTV.

The SPEED SPORT Challenge will be the first televised Outlaw Kart race. The 30-lap event at the sixth-mile dirt track will feature drivers from across the United States with various racing back-grounds, including outlaw karts, sprint cars and stock cars, competing against the Millbridge Speedway stars in 500cc winged outlaw karts, which have the same power-to-weight ratio as 410 sprint cars.

“We are very excited SPEED SPORT will be showcasing our racers at Millbridge to a national audi-ence on MAVTV,” promoter Ashly Burnett said. “We have a great weekly program and now the SPEED SPORT Challenge will help to increase the profile of our racers and our track to an even larger audience.”

SPEED SPORT Productions will tape Millbridge Speedway’s five divisions with the focus on the SPEED SPORT Challenge main event for the premier winged open karts. Millbridge Speedway’s classes in-clude beginner box stocks for racers ranging 5-8 years old, box stocks ranging ages 9-13, intermedi-ates featuring Marcos Ambrose’s new Thumper X engine, a sportsman division and the premier 500cc open division.

Guest appearances for this race are expected to include sprint car drivers Joey Saldana and Paul McMahan and Camping World Truck Series driver Tyler Reddick. More drivers will be announced in the coming weeks.

The event will be telecast as part of the MAVTV series “SPEED SPORT” scheduled to air on June 12.
