When Brian Clausen denied Kevin Swindell his fifth straight title and took the checkered flag on the final lap of last Saturday night’s 28th running of the world famous Chili Bowl Nationals in Tulsa, Okla., history was in the making with a new first time winner and extensive live television coverage by MAVTV. Nicknamed the “Super Bowl” of midget racing and held indoors at the Tulsa Expo Center, the sold out spectacular event maintained its standing as one of the great annual motorsports happenings. For the first time ever viewers across the nation could cheer on their heroes as they enjoyed 3 hours of live nationwide television coverage for free.
MAVTV scored a ‘home run’ with its first ‘live’ broadcast of 2014. According to Bob Patison, President of MAVTV; “The network was extremely pleased with its performance. I thought our coverage was very good and the broadcast team led by Dave Despain did an outstanding job,” said Patison. “I am very pleased to say that the phones have been ringing off the hook and emails piling up with praises from our viewers. In addition our preliminary ratings show the Chili Bowl to be the highest rated show in the network’s history.”
The Chili Bowl is only the first of MAVTV’s live broadcasts in 2014. Next up will be the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series’ East Bay Late Model Nationals from Tampa, Fla. on Thursday Feb. 13th, King of the Cage MMA on Saturday Feb. 22nd and all of the 1st Moto’s from the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships starting in May.
