(Halifax, NS – February 16, 2015) Race Time Radio (RTR) is back for the 2015 season with the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour, bringing fans far and wide closer to the action with six races confirmed to be streamed live via www.racetimeradio.com. RTR has been streaming races on the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour since the 2011 season, making Canadian motorsports history at the IWK 250 that year by airing the event live to Satellite Radio, which became the first stock car race in Canada to be aired live on the platform.
In 2013 the Tour streamed five races live and had a total audience of 221,000. In 2014 we streamed another five races which brought in an audience of over half a million people (515,000); doubling our streaming audience in just one season. The 15th annual Atlantic Cat 250 had the largest audience with just over 177,000 streams.
Two races at Riverside International Speedway and all four races at Scotia Speedworld will be streamed live in 2015, which include some pivotal events within the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour season. The season opener on Saturday, May 23rd and the season finale on Saturday, September 19th will be live via www.racetimeradio.com, along with both extended 250-lap events, the IWK 250 on Saturday, July 18th and the Atlantic CAT 250 on Saturday, August 8th.
