Bakerfield, CA – is excited to announce that it will be carrying start-to-finish, free, live streaming video coverage of the 53rd March Meet from historic Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, California.

The March Meet is the biggest, baddest, and most significant nostalgia drag race in the world. If you are fan of Nitro Funny Cars, Top Fuel Dragsters, and Gassers, this is the show for you. Famoso Raceway’s March Meet will be home to all that is good in the automotive world the weekend of March 18-20, 2011 and we’ll be bringing all of it to you LIVE thanks to Safety Sentry, MSD, Chris Alston’s Chassisworks, Mickey Thompson Tires, and AFCO Racing.

Please spread the word and link to this blog item where Friday March 18th you’ll be able to watch LIVE starting with Nitro qualifying.

“The March Meet rules! I wish there were two March’s a year so we could do this more often.” co-owner Chad Reynolds said. “I can’t imagine ever getting tired of the smell of nitro and burning rubber. And thanks to the Bowser family, I’ll never have to.”

“The Bowser family keeps the March Meet legacy alive.” co-owner Brian Lohnes said. “This year they added a completely new ALL CONCRETE track surface and timing system, and BangShift has added new sponsors to bring even more of the action right to your computer screen. We’ll be providing coverage from the pits, the Grove, the swap meet, and manufacturers midway for the first time on one of our March Meet broadcasts.”

We’re proud to announce that Safety Sentry, sponsor of the Stanfield Yonke NHRA Pro Stock Team, and the leader in trailer safety, will be our presenting sponsor for the weekend’s broadcast. We also welcome MSD Igntions, Chris Alston’s Chassisworks, Mickey Thompson Tires, The Auto Club of Southern California and new sponsor AFCO Racing to our broadcast. Please click on their logos below to show your appreciation. They are the ones that make it possible for us to bring you great, free, LIVE racing action all year.

Free access to the broadcast will be provided on from the first Nitro qualifying pass at the start of the race all the way through the finals on Sunday afternoon. Our broadcast schedule is as follows, but we will stay with racing action if it goes late any day. Stay tune for more updates as well.
