“We are excited to be bringing this exciting new reality to our fans who have shown us their support for us over the years,” said Dixon, who is also the president of the NASCAR Hall of Fame and Museum.
“Our goal is to help create a new era of NASCAR where fans can experience the joy of racing and the thrill of helping others.”
“Nascar fans will get to race in front of their television sets, while they watch the races themselves,” said Lawrence.
“I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us this season.”
In addition to the new race, the show will also feature a number of NASCAR-related celebrity guests, including NASCAR Hall-of-Famer Jack Brabham and NASCAR Hall Of Famer Darrell Waltrip.
“The goal of Race for The Cures is to make racing accessible to the widest audience possible,” said Larry, who also co-hosts a radio program with Brabher.
“When we started this show, we had no idea what to expect, and it has been amazing to see the passion our fans have shown for NASCAR.
We can’t believe they are so committed to making the sport more accessible and engaging.”
The race will also be broadcast live in the USA.

We hope everyone enjoys the show.”
