SRX Thunders Ahead

The iconic racing series made Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman and several others household names as they steered open-wheel cars around midwestern short tracks. Bestwick has served as the play-by-play announcer for SRX since the series’ inception. “It’s a television show that happens to have a race going on,” Bestwick said. “It’s a television show, so we take advantage of that. That quartet has competed in each of the series’ 12 events thus far and is returning this year. But outside of television, the series has broad appeal for both the tracks hosting events and those attending as fans. Forty-three tracks reached out to SRX about hosting events this year, which Hawk and Stewart narrowed to six based on geography. Hawk also is cognizant of the fact the series’ ultimate goal is to put on a show, both in person and on television.
