3 Live In Car Audio Streams and IROC Radio Coverage from Daytona Races
12 February 1999
The Auto Channel has joined forces with three stock car teams, IROC, and WNDB in Daytona to bring all the racing excitement of Speedweeks 1999 to a global Internet audience.
For The Goody's Dash Series Discount Auto Parts 200, The Auto Channel will broadcast the driver-crew communications of Angie Wilson and her #06 B&J Chevy team. Angie put her car in the 23rd starting position for Friday's race during the first round of qualifications for the Discount Auto Parts 200, which is scheduled to start at 11:00 am, EST. Angie will be the only woman competing in the Goody's Dash series race on Friday, and is a rookie this year. Cheer her on as she makes her rounds at Daytona, and take advantage of this rare opportunity to listen to the race from her perspective.
Also on Friday, The Auto Channel will broadcast WNDB's flag to flag radio coverage of round one of The True Value International Race of Champions XXIII. The IROC race at Daytona International Speedway is scheduled to start at 1:30 pm, EST. Each year the IROC series races pit the best drivers from all the major racing series against each other in 12 identically prepared Pontiac Firebirds. No matter where you are in the world, The Auto Channel will give you a chance to hear the racing action as IRL stars Kenny Brack and Eddie Cheever meet CART racers Greg Moore and Adrian Fernandez, and as all the open wheel racers struggle against the NASCAR drafting pros Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and others.
On Saturday for the NASCAR Busch Grand National Division NAPA Auot Parts 300, fans of The Auto Channel will be able to choose between two separate in-car radio feeds. Listen to the driver-crew communications of the #35 Scana/Powertel Chevrolet piloted by Lyndon Amick, or eavesdrop on the banter between Adam Petty and his crew chief Lance Deiters as Petty drives the #45 Spree PrePaid Foncard Chevrolet Monte Carlo around the highbanked turns of Daytona International Speedway.
Amick and his team will attempt to capture a second win at the Daytona International Speedway, this Saturday. Lyndon holds the distinction of being the youngest driver to ever win a stockcar event at that track. In 1996, at the age of 18, Amick won the Goody's Dash Series season opener at Daytona and went on to capture the Dash Series championship that same year. Lyndon's personal web site can be found at www.lyndonamick.com.
1999 will be Petty's first full season behind the wheel of a NASCAR Busch Series car. In 1998, he shocked race fans by becoming the youngest winner in the history of the American Speed Association Series (ASA). Later that same year, he became the youngest driver to ever win a superspeedway event while competing in the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) racing series. Petty captured a victory in his first-ever start in that series.
