Weedsport Productions announced the debut of "Off Track TV" on Friday. The online program will recap offseason news and events in dirt track racing as well as bring fans closer to drivers and teams.

The monthly program is now available at www.offtracktv.com. It will be hosted by SPEED SPORT and MAVTV commentators Dan Kapuscinski and Rich Vleck as well as Northeast racing news correspondent Mandee Pauch.

“Fans have been saying for quite some time that they would like to see the return of a 'This Week on DIRT' type of program, and this is a start,” Kapuscinski said in a news release. “A good portion of the Weedsport Productions crew was vital to the production of those shows in the past, and they are working hard to develop a program today that can offer the same type of programming to dirt track racing fans.”

The debut features an interview with Beyea Custom Headers Sportsman Shootout Series champion Kevin Ridley. 

“The goal is to bring fans into garages and work spaces that they otherwise may not see,” said Kapuscinski. “We want our fans to feel as though they are insiders so they can put faces to names and get to know the drivers, teams, and manufacturers that make the sport of dirt track racing go 'round."

An end-of-year news recap plus a look ahead to the 2018 Weedsport Speedway schedule are also part of the first episode.
