**NEWS UPDATE: TRACKING INTERNATIONAL TEAMS UP WITH TORC**
TORC and TrackingInternational.com teamed-up together for an initial test of their "live" web stream broadcast bringing the online fans all of the action from Perris Raceway, highlighting the inaugural "test session" hosted by AMSOIL and
the Professional Drivers Group PDG.

The action was streamed LIVE all weekend with three (3) cameras and two (2) announcers, which was hot-wired directly from the race announcer microphone. Phone calls from all over the country were broadcasted at the track and aired out to the online crowd. A host of characters fans and celebrities such as, Vanilla Ice, Moto, surf and Skate pros, as well as individuals from the hugely successful and totally nutz “NITRO CIRCUS,” called in to express their enthusiasm of the LIVE racing action streamed to them at home and their excitement for the race series to begin May 15, 2009 at Texas Motor Speedway. All in all, the online fans’ reception was “off the hook” and was hyped up more and more over the course of the two (2) day segment.
The chat room was cranking with questions and suggestions as to where to place the cameras, requests for driver interviews and general race driven chit-chat all happening in real time.

At the same time drivers were amped on participating in the LIVE stream interviews, which were graciously accepted in both their pits and the tower. Interviews included Scott Douglas, series founder and racer Ricky Johnson, Jeremy McGrath, Johnny Greaves and a host of others.

“We were really impressed with the coverage capabilities serving over five-thousand
(5,000) unique visitors per day". Stated TI Mktg Director Scott Bridges. All of this placed the online fans in the action and at the track. The fan is now given a much more personal experience of the total racing package. We can adapt to the needs of the sponsors as well as engage the fans with live interaction never seen before in off-road motorsports. We've got a ton of things up our sleeves this season.

We're maximizing the technology to where it needs to be. This is the next generation of fan-based motorsports and we’re making it happen! This is how the Internet should be!”
