FloSports, a leading sports streaming and original content network, today announced the acquisition of streaming rights for the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire in a groundbreaking 10-year deal to broadcast the blockbuster indoor Midget racing event to racing fans worldwide. One of the country’s biggest and most popular motorsports events, the Chili Bowl Nationals celebrates its 35th annual running between Jan. 11-16, 2021.
The deal amplifies the motorsports offering on FloSports and brings over 40 additional racing events to its FloRacing platform. As part of the pact to stream the Chili Bowl Nationals, FloSports will also exclusively broadcast the massive Lucas Oil Tulsa Shootout, the largest event for micro-sprint racing in the country, and will co-stream the 2021 Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network with the RacinBoys Broadcasting Network which will remain involved in the streaming production for the series. One of the industry’s fastest growing dedicated motorsports platforms, FloSports continues to consolidate the best of grassroots dirt track racing onto one digital destination. FloRacing has experienced a 450% growth in subscribers since January 2020, demonstrating the viability of this category to the future of motorsports streaming.
The six-night event annually draws thousands of spectators and over 300 Midget entrants from around the world, with American drivers from a variety of racing disciplines joining competitors from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Midget division regulars face off with racers from the ranks of the World of Outlaws, All-Star Circuit of Champions, USAC, Dirt Late Models, NASCAR, and NHRA drag racing, stamping the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals as the most eclectic motorsports event of the season. Last year’s run was topped by NASCAR and open-wheel superstar, Kyle Larson, while Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell, another NASCAR standout with roots in open-wheel racing, captured the race the previous three years.
Along with the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire, FloSports will also stream the massive Lucas Oil Tulsa Shootout — the largest event for micro-sprint racing in the world with well over 1,000 entries scheduled to compete from Dec. 30, 2020 through Jan. 2, 2021. FloRacing and RacinBoys will co-stream the 2021 Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network. RacinBoys will continue to consult on the production of the Lucas Oil Tulsa Shootout and the Chili Bowl Nationals.
