SpeedCast.tv Goes Live


SpeedCast.tv Goes Live

 

Meridian Speedway is partnering with SpeedCast.tv in an effort to bring racing action to your living room throughout the State of Idaho’s phased re-opening. While approved private test sessions continue through the end of April, a plan to produce video content for our loyal patrons and faithful advertising partners is being announced. Season Pass holders as well as scroll by viewers will be able to access the broadcasts live or in an archived form.

Closed set broadcast productions will begin on May 2, and continue until large venue provisions are attainable under Governor Little’s phased re-opening of Idaho.  The closed set production allows for Meridian Speedway staff to be reduced by more than eighty percent as facilitating the SpeedCast.tv production eliminates use from the majority of the facility.  These productions will also limit the available work by only calling on the requested Subcontractors (racers) to provide content and conform with the social distancing recommendations.   

Subcontractors and support staff will be assigned areas spread across the acreage to work within.  Under the direction of Social Distance Marshalls these individuals will be held accountable for practicing all Social Distancing best practices as outlined by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control.   

All activities on production property will be monitored by the Social Distance Marshalls, and any violator will be removed from the property as compliance with Phase One guidelines is our utmost priority. 

As is common knowledge to all, older persons and those with pre-existing respiratory or autoimmune conditions are at an increased risk and therefore should not attempt to participate in these productions.
