Rich Vleck, ROCHESTER, NY, (June 14, 2018)- The speed of the sprint cars will be brought in to the homes of all Upstate New York television owners this weekend on Speedway Showcase

Former Patriot Sprint Tour Announcer Rich Vleck and past Land of Legends Announcer Doug Elkins have the call of the race action while Paul Szmal, another former Canandaigua Announcer, provides experiences insight from trackside.  In addition to all of the racing action, there is the ever-popular tech minute, the question of the hour, and a visit with new Land of Legends Promoter Paul Cole.
