2002 MMRA Nationals Presented by the U.S. Air Force
Video Information Page
At long last, the videos are finally done. We appreciate Insight
Communications, and all their hard work to capture our sport on video.
Unfortunately, MMRA didn't have the same budget as NASCAR and the videos
reflect that. If you have been hoping to see an ESPN or FOX broadcast
of minicup racing, we don't yet have one.
The lighting at Beech Bend Raceway Park was not sufficient for the
cameras that Insight had. As such, the footage from the open class
race is fairly dark. Also, based on budgets and the footage we had to
work with, we decided to produce a 1/2 hour show that includes basic
information about minicups as well as some highlights of the racing action.
If you were hoping to see all 50 laps of your race, it won't be on the
video. All racers are mentioned and your picture shown on the starting
lineups but there wasn't enough money in the budget to "produce" more than
selected racing highlights.
Our main purpose in all this was to produce a short promotional video we
could show to sponsors who are not familiar with minicup racing. That
effort was a success. We now have a 9 minute promo tape which takes
our best footage and information, and packages it for sponsors. We can
heartily recommend the tape to any regional directors or racers who are
looking for something to show to sponsors. To see the promo video now

Considering that the 1/2 hour show didn't turn out as well as we would
have liked, we are keeping the price the same as for the 9 minute promo
video. Both are now available and you can order one or both by sending
a check for $20 per video to:
4554 Eisenhower Avenue
Alexandria, VA 22304
Please indicate with your check which video(s) and how many copies of
each you would like. The $20 will also cover shipping and handling.
