Fox Sports Net Ohio today announced it will telecast 16 editions of the "Meijer Kentucky Speedway Racing Report" in 2003. The reports will capture the essence of the speedway and provide an outlet for Tri-State race fans to get information about the track and racing in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. Steve Liverani, senior vice president and general manager, Fox Sports Net Ohio, made the announcement.

Due to the success of last year's series of specials, Fox Sports Net Ohio is expanding its coverage of the Kentucky Speedway from six shows to 16. Meijer is the presenting sponsor.

"Providing regional sports programming has been, and continues to be, an important focus of our network," said Liverani. "Race fans in the Tri-State area will once again have a place to turn to for the latest in local racing action."

Fox Sports Net's Jim Day, along with Tim Bray, Director of Communications at the Kentucky Speedway will host the "Meijer Kentucky Speedway Racing Report." Cincinnati racing analyst Bob Schmitt will also contribute to the programs.

"The specials are designed to be the fans source for Kentucky Speedway information," said Tim Bray. "It's been our goal to illustrate our venue and raise the profile of the great racing in this region through a regular magazine-style show since our opening. We are grateful Fox Sports Net Ohio is again willing to partner with us in this exciting venture."
