Sopwith to Produce “Webb’s Auto Body 100 Presented by Boschett Timepieces”

July 21, 2011 (Indianapolis) – The first-ever national broadcast of a Super Cup Stock Car Series racing event will take place at the “Webb’s Auto Body 100 Presented by Boschett Timepieces” at Virginia’s Old Dominion Speedway on July 30th.

Six cameras will be employed to cover the event including a primary overview camera, ground level cameras in Turns 1 and 4, a mobile camera crew working along pit road, and at least two on-board camera systems mounted on racecars.

The show will have a slightly different presentation according to executive producer Stephen Cox of Sopwith Motorsports Television Productions. “We’re going to relax the program a bit. We’re going to talk to some drivers and teams and show off the series in the best light possible. We want our audience to get to know the stars of Super Cup, to see the cars up close and educate them on the series. You’ll definitely see some great racing, but we’re not going to be afraid to leave the racetrack occasionally and let the viewers breathe a little.”
