Formula Off-Road To Air On NBC Sports
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – NBC Sports Network will broadcast eight SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by Traxxas races in 2014.
Time slots for the eight hours of programming were selected and focused on the powerful millennial-generation demographic with all races airing in prime time on the west coast of the United States due to the immense popularity of off-road racing in the Central and Pacific time zones.
Additionally, ESPN will showcase the trucks live during X Games Austin on June 8.
Formula Off-Road Presented by Traxxas will begin its second season of competition March 28-30 at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in conjunction with the IndyCar Series. The trucks will race five times with IndyCar in 2014 at a number of the series’ most popular venues including St. Petersburg, Long Beach, Indianapolis, Detroit and Toronto. Stand-alone Formula Off-Road Presented by Traxxas events will take place at Orange County, California’s Sand Sport Super Show, the Coronado Speed Festival in San Diego and along the Las Vegas Strip while the mega-SEMA show is in town in November.
