The entire SPEARS Southwest Tour season will be live streamed over the internet in 2020.
In a partnership with Low Budget TV, the southwestern Super Late Model tour has launched the SPEARSracing.TV digital broadcast platform. The partnership will begin this weekend with the inaugural, $25,000-to-win non-points Irwindale Speedway All-Star Showdown.
SPEARSracing.TV will also include the SPEARS Modified Series. The monthly subscription service will cost $24.99 and will include on-demand access of previous events.
In addition to the live streamed coverage, both tours will receive expanded tape-delayed national coverage on MAVTV throughout the year.
The SPEARS Southwest Tour regularly features the likes of four-time champion Derek Thorn, PASS National champion Preston Peltier, defending champion Cole Moore, Linny White and Jacob Gomes
Low Budget TV was launched in 2006 by Jeffrey Best and Tommy Mason, two life-long racing enthusiasts who were driven to deliver digital content in an ever-expanding market. Through the partnership, Best and Mason will now broadcast many of the same tracks they attended as fans during their formative years.
It’s a full-circle moment according to the Southwest Tour’s Brian Olsen.
“Tommy and Jeffrey at LBTV are so dedicated to our sport and helped bring this entire package together,” Olsen said. “Their knowledge of the drivers in both series will really enhance the race fan’s experience when they are watching the races on SpearsRacing.TV.”
In 2014, Low Budget TV made the transition to live broadcasting and has grown into regional leaders within the field.
“It is an honor for Low Budget TV to be partnered with SPEARS Southwest Tour Series and Spears Manufacturing Modified Series for the 2020 season,” Best said.
