LEXINGTON, Ohio (August 3, 2012) – Some like the term “marshal,” some prefer “flagger.” Drivers call them their “Angels in White.” SCCA’s corner workers are instrumental in nearly every amateur and professional road racing event in the United States, and they will be the subject of a feature during Saturday’s American Le Mans Series Presented by Tequila Patrón Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge race broadcast, live on ABC at 2 p.m. (EDT).
As part of the renewed ALMS/SCCA partnership that names SCCA the “Official Grassroots Motorsports Partner of the ALMS,” each remaining race in 2012 will include feature content on Sports Car Club of America in its broadcast.
“We’re very excited to continue our relationship with the American Le Mans Series,” SCCA President and CEO Jeff Dahnert said. “The ALMS is something to which many of members aspire, and we’re thrilled that the series and the television team have chosen to feature our SCCA corner workers during the Mid-Ohio broadcast.”
The Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge is scheduled to air Saturday, Aug. 4 from 2-4 p.m. (EST). Viewers are encouraged to verify this time in their local ABC affiliate listings. Qualifying can be viewed live on the internet via ESPN3, beginning Friday, Aug. 3 at 12:15 p.m. More information about the event is available at www.alms.com.
