In a partnership through Champion Racing Ass’n, Watermelon Capital Speedway and, both the 200-lap main event for the ARCA/CRA Super Series and the 125-lap JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour feature event from SpeedFest 2015 will be seen live on 51 TV on Jan. 25.

The SpeedFest event will be $19.99 for those who cannot make it to the southern Georgia race track in January. Fans who purchase the Sunday event, will receive access to watch qualifying on Saturday. Those who want to purchase qualifying-only can do so for $4.99. There will be a 100-mile blackout radius for the video broadcast.

“We’re extremely thrilled to have do another pay-per-view for SpeedFest. We’ve felt all along that the event at Watermelon Capital Speedway would be one of the best places for a pay-per-view event,”said CRA Managing Partner R.J. Scott.

“Because the supers and pros race together on the same day, it’s a tremendous viewing opportunity for people across the country to see a great, full day of racing,” said Scott. “SpeedFest has become such a major national event that racers and their sponsors can get great exposure across the country with the help of and their pay-per-view. Southern hospitality is always displayed at its best in Cordele, Georgia. The people are wonderful and everybody should try and experience it for himself or herself in person. For those who can’t make the trip, the pay-per-view is the next best thing and we’re happy to have it as a part of SpeedFest.”

Last year, fans that attended Championship Racing Ass’n’s SpeedFest at Watermelon Capital Speedway witnessed an epic battle between Chase Elliott and Johnny Sauter. Elliott won his last super late model event before embarking on a NASCAR Nationwide Series championship year. Fans also witnessed John Hunter Nemechek winning his first pro late model feature.

“This event has evolved into one of the top short track events in the country, and we are proud to team up with Championship Racing Ass’n to bring this event live on 51 TV,” said Bob Dillner, founder. “This event is more of a kickoff to the asphalt short track season as the best from the north and south converge at Watermelon Capital Speedway for some great side-by-side racing. We know this does not replace being there, but hopefully it helps for fans with family and work commitments.”
