As long as you have a steady high-speed internet connection, you should be able to watch smooth video throughout each night's program.

Saturday’s program includes heats, consolations, non-qualifiers' race and the 100-lap feature paying $30,000-to-win.
What time does the production begin?: About 6:30 p.m. (Eastern time) each night. Hot laps are scheduled to beginning at 6:50 p.m. 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 is doing the production?: DirtonDirt.com co-founder Michael Rigsby will oversee a specially assembled production team that brings extensive broadcast experience.
