Daily Show to Debut on Feb. 5 at 11 a.m. (ET)

GLENDORA, Calif. -- NHRA announced today that ESPN Classic will reach into its vast video archive and begin daily airings of "NHRA Drag Racing," featuring races dating back to the mid-'90s.

The daily show debuts Monday, Feb. 5 at 11 a.m. (ET) and is currently scheduled through the end of March. In all, 40 shows are currently scheduled to air during the next two months.

NHRA Drag Racing on ESPN Classic will be one-hour long and feature exclusive racing coverage that aired on ESPN and ESPN2 from as far back as the mid-'90s to last year's exciting 2006 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series season. The first episode features the 1995 NHRA Mopar Mile-High Nationals from Bandimere Speedway near Denver.

"Weekdays at 11 a.m., NHRA fans can enjoy some of the best NHRA Drag Racing Series races from the last decade and a half that originally aired on ESPN and ESPN2," said Brian Gramling, associate manager of program planning at ESPN Classic. ESPN Classic is currently available in nearly 65 million households nationwide. To get ESPN Classic, call your local cable operator or satellite dish provider.

Fans will have some input moving forward with the scheduling. NHRA announced that fans can e-mail to request races they would like to see in the future on ESPN Classic, from those that aired on ESPN and ESPN2 since the mid-'90s.
