Join hosts Dennis Michelsen and Tim Frost of the  National Speedway Directory for Track Source Radio…the official radio show of  the National Speedway Directory and Speedwaysonline.com. Each week Dennis and  Tim will bring you the racing news from behind the scenes and on the track from  all over North America.

This week we examine the art of race  promotion with three guests from three different levels of racing. What are  tracks and series big and small doing to attract new customers and keep their  long time fans happy? Our guests will examine this question from a major league  series, short track asphalt, and dirt track point of view.

John Lopes is the President of Andretti Sports  Marketing which has done a magnificent job adding new life to races that were in  trouble. John talks about the Milwaukee Indy Fest and their other work to help  bring Indy Car Racing back in the USA. Some of the methods used at Andretti Sports  Marketing can help any size track or series attract new customers.

Jason Tyler took over management at  Madison International Speedway and has done a wonderful job turning a weekly  facility into a track that fans can expect a great show from every time they  open their gates. Switching mainly to Sunday matinee shows has given fans and  racers another option for short track racing in the Badger state.

Glen Thompson from GT Promotions has brought back  racing to Liberty Fairgrounds Speedway and also runs Beaver County Raceway. This  week Liberty is hosting the Stroker Ace Nationals which features  some fun fan involvement as well as terrific racing for IMCA  street stocks  and sport mods. Rick Salem’s United Rebel Sprints will be there next week.
