MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Unlimited Off-Road Racing has partnered with the live motorsports network SPEED  SPORT 1 to distribute and market its marquee live off-road events, as well as its vast library of  past events, documentaries and off-road lifestyle programming. Each of the three major events — the Mint  400, the Parker 400 and the California 300 — will air LIVE in their entirety on SPEED SPORT 1. 

Series CEO and co-owner Matt Martelli has stated that this distribution deal creates the broadest distribution reach  these events have envisioned since their inception. 

“We are thrilled to partner with SPEED SPORT 1 to bring our marquee events to a global audience. This  collaboration significantly enhances our ability to reach off-road racing enthusiasts around the world,  solidifying our position as the definitive desert off-road racing league,” said Martelli. “Our racers, partners  and sponsors will benefit from unprecedented exposure through SPEED SPORT 1’s extensive reach, which  spans over 200 million households.

First run in 1968, it has been a Mecca for  the biggest names in off-road racing, auto industry partners and Hollywood celebrities. Its annual Las Vegas  Strip parade and Fremont Street gathering is one of the most exciting pre-race events in motorsports.
