SPEED SPORT has been one of the long-standing news and editorial outlets for motorsports and we look forward to utilizing their marketing reach in 2023.”

Race fans will have expanded flexibility to catch all the action with both SCCT and the Placerville Speedway this season. Fans will have the ability to purchase through a monthly membership or on a per race basis via the brand new CaliDirt.TV located at

“SpeedShift and FloRacing were certainly good starting points to live streaming from a promoter’s perspective,” Russell elaborated. “Going forward however, we need to have access to data, otherwise there isn’t a value to streaming for a track or series. We feel live streaming is still evolving but to maximize the value and benefits, we truly needed to have increased access to data, in order to reach a broader market from a marketing standpoint.
