MAVTV Announces Revised ARCA Broadcast Schedule as Racing Returns

MAVTV Motorsports Network, the only cable television network in the U.S dedicated solely to motorsports, is scheduled to return to LIVE ARCA Menards Series race broadcasts starting Friday, July 3, for the Calypso Lemonade 200 from Lucas Oil Raceway.

Per the Indiana Governor’s Office, the historic Lucas Oil Raceway will allow fans to attend the event on July 3 under the healthcare and safety protocol standards established for the race. As of mid-June, the state of Indiana has moved into Stage 4 of the state’s reopening process. Under Stage 4, safety guidelines allow raceways to operate at 50% capacity.

“We are incredibly excited to bring LIVE ARCA race coverage back to all MAVTV viewers,” said Dan Teitscheid, President, MAVTV Motorsports Network. “With the novel coronavirus halting all forms of live entertainment, bringing back live auto racing to motorsports fans is a big win, especially with the July 4 holiday fast approaching.”

The July 3 event features a 200-lap race and serves as the second round of the Sioux Chief Showdown. Chandler Smith, who won the first round of the Sioux Chief Showdown in March, looks to keep bragging rights over the rest of the field and go two-for-two in Sioux Chief Showdown races. LIVE coverage of ARCA Menards 2020 season returns on the MAVTV channel July 3 at 8 pm ET.
