Albertville, Minn. ~ Officials with the International Series of Champions (ISOC) are pleased to announce a new partnership between Championship Off-Road and CBS Sports Network, bringing the greatest off-road short course racing to homes all over North America.
Off-Road enthusiasts from the city lights of Elk River, to fans on the shores of Lake Michigan, will now not only be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of Championship Off-Road in person, but also in the comfort of their homes. The 2021 schedule consists of traditional stops at Crandon International Raceway, ERX Motor Park, Dirt City Motorplex, and Bark River International Raceway, while also being complimented with new race venue, Antigo Lions Roaring Raceway.
The new television package kicks off this summer with six, one-hour telecasts showcasing the premier short-course, off-road racing championship in the world. The series is home to the sport’s best drivers, including Kyle LeDuc, CJ and Johnny Greaves, Kyle Kleiman, Keegan Kincaid and a bevy of stars across its Pro Truck and Side-by-Side classes. Not only does Championship Off-Road boast some of the best drivers in the world, the series also has an influx of classes for drivers in the early stages of their career.
Championship Off-Road’s parent company, ISOC, has a long-standing partnership with CBS Sports, airing more than 17 original hours of AMSOIL Championship Snocross annually on the network. ISOC has brought award-winning production to CBS with its Snocross coverage and they expect to raise the bar with coverage of its off-road series in 2021.
“Our partnership with CBS Sports is more than a decade long and our expectations are to continue to bring a high-level of production to the network with Championship Off-Road.,” said ISOC president Carl Schubitzke. “Being able to feature the best off-road racers in the world racing on the finest off-road tracks ever built, is a major opportunity for our series and our sport.”
With a strong schedule and CBS Sports Network in place for the Summer of 2021, the series continues its commitment to remarkable racing, including an exceptionally talented group of drivers from the pro ranks to the amateur classes, all hoping to be crowned champion later this summer. Reigning PRO4 champion Kyle LeDuc, and PRO2 champion Kyle Kleiman, look to lead the charge as the season kicks off in less than 100 days.
The 2021 Championship Off Road series begins June 5-6 in Antigo, Wis., running through Labor Day weekend where the series will conclude at Crandon International Raceway in Crandon, Wis. Each event will be featured in a one-hour telecast with repeat airings for Championship Off-Road followers to admire during the 2021 season.
