The Racing Insiders airs weekly on the MAVTV Network with a reach of 43,000,000 households and a target demographic of 25 to 54 year olds. MAVTV's programming includes several Motorsport programs and, is owned by Forest Lucas, of Lucas Oil. Lucas Oil has the naming rights to the Indianapolis Colts' football stadium and now "bookends" the 2013 American racing season with the "ARCA Lucas Oil 200" raced in January at Daytona and October's IndyCar season finale "MAVTV American Real 500" at Auto Club Speedway in Southern California. It is obvious that Lucas Oil and MAVTV doesn't do anything half way and we expect The Racing Insiders on the MAVTV Network to live up to that trend.
