Texas Motor Speedway Media Day Webcast Open to Fans

Adam AmickSenior Writer IFebruary 24, 2009

Wednesday I'll be spending the midday hours at Media Day for Texas Motor Speedway. Since most of you won't be able to enjoy the hospitality of Eddie Gossage and the great staff he has at the track, there is something I can share with you (prior to actually writing about the interviews).

The track has a redesigned Web site, and fans are welcome to watch the live webcast of the event. Please see the press release below, and let me know if there's anything (reasonable) you'd like me to ask any of the participants.


Dear media members and PR representatives,

We announced Friday that Texas Motor Speedway will officially christen its redesigned website www.texasmotorspeedway.com on Wednesday by offering a free live webcast of the speedway’s annual Media Day.

            Texas Motor Speedway Media Day will feature Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman, and Colin Braun of NASCAR along with Danica Patrick, Scott Dixon, and Dario Franchitti of the IndyCar Series for the annual media kick-off luncheon in The Speedway Club’s Texas Grand Ballroom.

The webcast will begin at approximately 12:05 p.m. Central Time and the 90-minute segment will feature TMS President Eddie Gossage’s state-of-the-sport address, Patrick, Dixon, and Franchitti via satellite from an IndyCar test session in Homestead, Fla., and an on-stage Q&A session with Stewart, Newman, and Braun, and Fort Worth’s own dirt track star Troy Taylor.

I wanted to make sure you were aware that the invitation to view the webcast was open to all of you in addition to our race fans. You do NOT have to sign up or create a profile for the Web site to gain access that day to the webcast. We hope you can join us for the event.
