The Racing Insiders airs weekly starting May 2 on Thursdays at 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM on the MAVTV Network with a reach of 43,000,000 households and a target demographic of 25 to 54 year olds. MAVTV's programming includes several Motorsport programs and, is owned by Forest Lucas, of Lucas Oil. Lucas Oil has the naming rights to the Indianapolis Colts' football stadium and now "bookends" the 2013 American racing season with the "ARCA Lucas Oil 200" raced in January at Daytona and October's IndyCar season finale "MAVTV American Real 500" at Auto Club Speedway in Southern California. It is obvious that Lucas Oil and MAVTV doesn't do anything half way and we expect The Racing Insiders on the MAVTV Network to live up to that trend.

"A show like this has been needed for a long time, sports car racing fans in north America have been under served, deprived of focused news and information on the sport they love, for far too long. We hope to fill that void, saysErrol Tucker Executive Producer at GoRacingTV.com, "We are proud to bring a topical, contemporary look at sports car racing to broadcast. It's unclear if this has ever been tried before solely for this valuable market segment", said Jason Patison, Programming Director at MAVTV.

To make sure the show stays on point with the fan's needs, the show will be heavy integrated into social media, fans will be able to ask questions and interact with the host during the show's air dates, through the show's social media channels facebook.com/TheRacingInsiders, twitter.com/Racing_Insiders and www.TheRacingInsiders.com. This steady interaction with the fans will help the hosts and show producers in making sure they provide the fans with the information their interested in.
