Is it just like watching TV?: For the most part, although you computer screen is likely a bit smaller and the picture isn't quite as a sharp as some television broadcasts. As long as you have a steady high-speed internet connection, you should be able to watch smooth video throughout each night's program.
Is the live production available on mobile devices?: A computer and full web browser may provide the best experience, but most smartphones and tablets, including iPhones and iPads, can be used as well.
What's the racing schedule?: All six events include complete programs for Late Models (three sanctioned by UMP DIRTcar, three sanctioned by World of Outlaws) while UMP modifieds (Monday and Tuesday) and big-block modifieds (Wednesday-Saturday) are also on the card. Hot laps, time trials, heat races, consolation races and features make up the programs.
What time does the production begin?: Live video begins about an hour before scheduled start times (all times Eastern). That should be about 5:30 p.m. or so each evening.
Can I watch from work?: Maybe not. Many places of businesses use security firewalls on computer systems that prevent live video. If you receive a server message (something like rtmp://dirtondirt.streamguys.com:80/live) it's likely a firewall issue. Most home networks won't have such firewall issues.
Who will be announcing?: World of Outlaws announcer Rick Eshelman will do play-by-play along with DIRTcar's Shane Andrews while Ben Shelton will be roving reporter. Andrews will join Shelton on the pre-race show.
