AMA Nationals at Loretta Lynn Returns to TV

Friday, September 25, 2009

This year's show will air in HD, produced by the same crew that puts together the highly regarded Racer TV program covering the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series.
 
"It's not easy to develop a television package that encompasses the entire event at the Ranch," said Event Director Tim Cotter. "Future pro superstars are a big part, but we also showcase the lifers in amateur racing, as well as all the fun activities from around the ranch. You never know what will happen down there, but we do know the show can capture it all."

This year's show chronicals this year's amateur standouts, such as Dean Wilson, Blake Baggett, Taylor Futrell, Adam Cianciarulo, Justin Weeks, Doug Dubach and Eli Tomac.

The event has aired on Versus since 2005, showcasing current and future pro motocross superstars such as Ryan Villopoto, Jason Lawrence, Josh Hill, Trey Canard, Nico Izzi and Austin Stroupe.

The half-hour show re-airs on Tuesday, September 29 at 4:00 p.m.

Jason Weigandt, host of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship on SPEED and NBC and the GNCC shows on Versus, will host the show.

"The pro stuff is great, but there's no week of the year that matches the fun of Loretta's," said Weigandt. "We get to meet tomorrow's stars today, and witness incredible racing. Plus, we get some really embarrassing footage of the kids when they're young, stuff that we can use against them when they're older. This is the chance to say you saw them before they were stars."
