PICKERINGTON, Ohio (Oct. 1, 2003) -- Outdoor Life Network (OLN) will begin its broadcast coverage of the inaugural AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship season on Oct. 16. The shows will air Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST (7 p.m. on the West Coast) and then re-air three hours later. Each of the five qualifying rounds of the championship will be shown leading up to the championship finale, which will be carried live on Friday, Nov. 21 from Las Vegas beginning at 9 p.m. EST (6 p.m. on the West Coast).

As announced earlier, the show will be presented in episodic format and will feature extensive racing coverage as well as behind-the-scenes looks at the lifestyles of top racers from the series.

AMA Pro Racing Vice President, Director of Communications, Kerry Graeber confirmed that the show is intended to look different from traditional racing coverage. "We've taken a fresh look at everything involved with this championship series including the TV presentation," said Graeber.
