MAVTV to Cover 12 ARCA Racing Series Events Live in 2019

The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards will have twelve races broadcast on MAVTV in 2019. The relationship between MAVTV and ARCA began in 2017 with ten broadcasts, four of which were live, and will expand in 2019 to a total of twelve race broadcasts all of which are scheduled to be live, marking the first time in the series' history all of its races are scheduled for live television coverage.

MAVTV's coverage is scheduled to begin with the ARCA Pensacola 200 at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida on Sarturday night, March 9.

Other events scheduled on MAVTV include races at Salem Speedway on April 14, Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville on May 4, Toledo Speedway on May 19, Madison International Speedway on June 14, Gateway Motorsports Park on June 22, Elko Speedway on July 13, Iowa Speedway on July 19, the Illinois State Fairgrounds on August 18, the DuQuoin State Fair on August 31, Salem Speedway on September 14, and Lucas Oil Raceway October 5.

Each of the ARCA Racing Series Sioux Chief Short Track Challenge races is slated for coverage on MAVTV. MAVTV broadcast its first-ever superspeedway event in 2018, at Michigan International Speedway, and will again cover one superspeedway race in 2019 with coverage from Gateway in June.

The Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) is among the leading and most versatile auto racing sanctioning bodies in the country. Founded in 1953 by John and Mildred Marcum, the organization was acquired by NASCAR in 2019. ARCA administers nearly 100 events each year in multiple racing series, including the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, the ARCA/CRA Super Series and the ARCA Midwest Tour, plus weekly racing at Toledo and Flat Rock Speedways.

I appreciate you covering ARCA and other racing events.  I learned about MAVTV at a Lucas Oil Racing even in Rome, GA when a lady was passing out key chains and other things with your name on it.  I went to Google and learned about you.  Now I have you on my cable and enjoy watching racing with you.  Thanks.

That is some BS. Especially since half of the TV Providers have decided not to provide MAVTV anymore. And all their coverage of the races were terrible. There were more Commercial Breaks than actual Race Coverage.

I've changed providers three times in the last two years and MAVTV has been available on all of them. And commercials, while they do break up the action, pay for the coverage. Thanks for reading!

I agree with Kevin S. I use to pay for mavtv and the quality of the picture was so bad you could hardly see it and lots of commercials. 

Kalvin S.

I think all Racing should be on FS1 or FS2 or better yet on Regular TV stations so everyone can see it no matter what provider they have. I have Charter-Spectrum and up until last November I had Mavtv, but because of some BS money issues, Spectrum and MavTv couldn't come to an agreement on continuing broadcasting the channel. To be honest no Network has been a decent Coverage of any racing Series since the ABC/ESPN/CBS-Turner Communications Era of the Early 90's and 00's. Here lately it has been all about how many Commercials they can fit into a broadcast. Commercials should only be on during a Caution. You don't see those networks broadcasting Commercial during a football, basketball or baseball play do ya. No there shouldn't be any Commercials on while there is any action going on, on TV. Besides I don't need to see the same 6 Commercials during every Commercial break.

Can't wait to watch! 


THANK YOU MAV TV for your support on ARCA racing coverage.
