Tired of shopping for holiday presents? Give yourself a gift with two “can’t miss” 2020 Runoffs races from Road America being broadcast this Sunday on CBS Sports Network! The day opens at 2 p.m. Eastern with American Sedan (AS), a heavyweight battle with cars making lurid slides and podium positions in question ‘til the end. Then at 3 p.m. Eastern, the spotlight illuminates a Formula Vee (FV) saga filled with edge-of-seat tension and plenty of open-wheel antics right to the checkered flag.
Too busy to plop down on the couch for these broadcasts? Don’t worry, an encore presentation of the AS race takes place at 9 p.m. Eastern, followed by an FV encore airing at 10 p.m. Eastern.
More select National Championship races will be broadcast this year in December on CBS Sports Network. The broadcast exposure offers Sports Car Club of America® the chance to share its thrilling brand of championship road racing to millions while also showcasing accessibility to motorsports. Each separate race, captured by Apex Broadcast for the 12th year in-a-row, will be 60 minutes in length and include commentary from motorsports broadcasting icon Bob Varsha, as well as Runoffs stalwarts Ryan Myrehn, Tom O’Gorman and Larry MacLeod with Heyward Wagner again providing coverage from pit lane. All broadcast times are Eastern, and the schedule is subject to change. Check cable or satellite TV providers for local CBS Sports Network channels.
