  1. Having local racing available from Anderson Speedway and the Speedrome is fantastic! Great Job. It is so fun to watch with my kids and be able to tell them, "We can go to those races some night."

    You are helping to create the future race fans of Indiana.

    Thanks, Matt

  2. What happened to Channel 19 (on Comcast cable)? It is not available anymore. Having been a resident of Noblesville for 15 years, we enjoyed watching local sports and other programming in and around our community.
