Tony Stewart and Ray Evernham join forces to create SRX short-track racing series
Of the many ideas started by racers on a barroom napkin, the Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) is one of the freshest. Tony Stewart and Ray Evernham—two of NASCAR’s most renowned Hall of Famers—have partnered with former NASCAR COO George Pyne and broadcast agent Sandy Montag to helm the new short-track racing series, which hopes to pit talented drivers from all disciplines and eras of circle-track racing against each other on a mixture of paved and dirt ovals. The action will air in a primetime slot on CBS Saturday at some point in 2021.
Hopefully this will shine a spotlight on short track racing and create a demand for a WoO TV package built around race lengths that consider the attention span of today's viewers. NASCAR is a dead sport crawling.
