Dirt Knights Racing Reality TV Series signs deal with VERSUS


BEMIDJI, Minn. (March 29) – The hottest spectator sport in the world is hottest on dirt, and soon it will be the hottest show on television.


Dirt Knights – the dirt track racing docu-drama television series – is pleased to announce they are set to debut in January of 2011 on VERSUS, the fastest growing cable sports network in the nation.


Dirt Knights is an on-going dramatic series of one-hour programs that will air twice a week for 13 weeks with each episode reaching more than 75 million households.


“We couldn’t be more excited than to have the opportunity to work with VERSUS,” said Dirt Knights’ Mike Spaulding. “They are the leader in action sports coverage and have done a fantastic job covering the Izod IndyCar Series.”


Episodes will air during the highly coveted Sunday evening time slot.


“We’re going to be an excellent addition to their Sunday night schedule of programming,” added Spaulding. “It’s just the perfect time for the millions of dirt track racers and fans to tune in and catch our unique brand of hard-charging, dirt track racing. And it wouldn’t be the Dirt Knights without a little good old-fashioned off-track antics.”


As thrilling as these drivers’ lives are on the track, the life they lead off the track is just as intense. They eat dirt and drive hard late into the evening then try to unwind the only way they know how: at 100 mph. An all-night road trip follows and, if they’re lucky, a couple hours of sleep before they reach the next patch of dirt.


For the first time, that high-octane lifestyle will be revealed.


Corey Dripps, Scott Green, Al Hejna, Mike Spaulding and Jon Tesch are the Dirt Knights. While life has taken them in unique directions, all of them have one thing in common: a hunger for the checkered flag. Night after night from town to town, the Knights seek out a life of danger and on-the-edge-thrills.


“This is a project that has been in the works for more than two years now,” added Corey Dripps. “For some, racing is a hobby and for others it’s how we make our living, but either way, we all love and respect this sport. We hope that people will tune in and be entertained, but at the same time we want to convey what the racing life is really all about.”


The life of an American dirt track racer is not one that many could endure, but for the Dirt Knights it’s the only life worth living, and through the Dirt Knights TV series on VERSUS, we all get to go along for the wild ride.
