Deal brings over 50 Northeast big-block/small-block modified events to FloRacing subscribers
AUSTIN, Texas (March 3, 2021) – FloSports, a leading sports streaming and original content network, today announced an agreement with BD Motorsports Media’s Brett Deyo to live-stream the race promoter’s Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series Fueled by Sunoco (STSS) events and action at Fonda (N.Y.) Speedway and Georgetown (Del.) Speedway.
The deal brings over 50 Northeast big-block/small-block modified events to the 2021 broadcast schedule on FloRacing, the industry-leading grassroots motorsports digital-only platform. Fans of Deyo’s series and tracks will have access to every event broadcast — as well as all FloSports content and the many motorsports offerings on the FloRacing vertical — with a $150 annual subscription to FloRacing.
A part of the deal that all parties agreed as being integral was the inclusion of Dirt Track Digest TV, which has streamed STSS events on a pay-per-view basis in recent years and will continue to produce all the broadcasts for FloRacing.
Deyo’s Short Track Super Series headlines the latest addition to the FloRacing lineup. An ever-growing tour for big-block and small-block modifieds since its birth in 2014, the STSS is split into North and South regions that boast 11- and 10-race schedules, respectively, and separate points funds. The South region visits eight tracks in Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania beginning with Georgetown’s March 12-13 Melvin L. Joseph Memorial Weekend while the North region races at 10 tracks in New York and Pennsylvania starting May 11 at Accord (N.Y.) Speedway.
Highlighting the STSS schedules are a pair of big-money fall weekends that rank as two of the Northeast’s richest big-block/small-block modified events: the North region’s $53,000-to-win Fonda 200 on Sept. 16-18 at the historic half-mile Fonda Speedway and the South region’s $50,000-to-win Speed Showcase 200 Weekend on Oct. 14-16 at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway.
Other major STSS events include the North region’s season-ending American Racer Cup Short Track Super Nationals Weekend on Oct. 8-9 at Afton (N.Y.) Speedway and Georgetown’s Mid-Atlantic Championship Weekend on Oct. 29-30 that serves as the South region’s points finale.
Also streaming on FloRacing will be all the weekly events Deyo promotes at Fonda and Georgetown. Fonda’s 2021 schedule headlines the big-block/small-block modified division for its regular Saturday-night shows and includes 21 race dates beginning with its season opener on April 17 while Georgetown, a sprawling half-mile oval near the Delaware and Maryland beaches, hosts a special-event schedule of 11 race dates spread over nine events from March through October.
All FloRacing broadcasts also include coverage of each race program’s support divisions, including the STSS’s companion North and South tours for the 602 Crate Sportsman class. Georgetown’s schedule includes events for the Super Late Model division on April 15 and during the Oct. 29-30 Mid-Atlantic Championship Weekend.
“Our partnership with FloRacing is a ‘win, win, win’ situation,” said Deyo, a Delaware resident who has become one of the Northeast’s busiest dirt-track promoters. “It’s a game-changer for our racers, tracks and sponsors, all of whom will benefit from the massive exposure and viewership FloRacing brings. The (broadcast) quality our viewers have become accustomed to will remain in place with the Dirt Track Digest TV team staying on board for production, but the big bonus for our fans is the annual subscription price of $150 for FloRacing that makes it very affordable to watch our events.”
