The Radio and Television Motorsports Empire, SpeedFreaks announced today that ESPN2 will be the new home for their extremely successful television show. Kenny Sargent and The Pit Crew will kick things off with an hour special this Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. EST with some of the biggest Freakin' names in motorsports.

"ESPN is very excited to add SpeedFreaks to the ESPN2 Family," says Frantz R. Cayo, Director of Motorsports Programming. "Their unique take on the world of motorsports and their reputation with the racing community will be a very nice complement to our overall motorsports strategy. We look forward to introducing Kenny Sargent, Lugg Nuttz, Crash Gladys, and Statt Mann Caruthers to all of our fans."

"What a great place for us to be at this point of SpeedFreaks growth," says the Freaks' Prez Kenny Sargent. "The group at ESPN2 has embraced SpeedFreaks' style from the beginning, and looking ahead at what's in store for 2007, the mothership has landed!" The Sarge continues, "Our radio show maintains it's growth second to none, and now riding shotgun on ESPN2, motorsports will get more than it's share of the Freak Nation."

This SpeedFreaks Sunday special was shot from the Mopar Mile High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway and the Mopar Big Block Party in Golden, Colorado. Featured throughout the 60 minutes is NASCAR's Kasey Kahne, Drifting's Sam Hubinette, MotoGP's Colin Edwards & Nicky Hayden, Injured Motocrosser Ernesto Fonseca and a slew from the NHRA paddock including John Force, Melanie Troxel, Tony Schumacher, Ron Capps, Richie Stevens, Angelle Sampey, Mike Ashley, Gene Wilson, Erica Enders and team owner Don Schumacher. Oh yeah, kicking off the show is none other than Formula One's defending Champion, Fernando Alonso.

And, beginning February 2007, SpeedFreaks will hit the track full throttle on ESPN2 every Friday evening as part of the new motorsports weekend programming.
