XR Announces 2022 Broadcast Rights Agreement with High Plains Late Model Series

2022 High Plains Late Model Series Events to be Streamed Live on XR+ and Available On Demand

SILVER BAY, Minn. (January 10, 2022) — X.CELERATED and the High Plains Late Model Series announce an agreement to broadcast all of the series’ 2022 events on XR+.

The High Plains Late Model Series is a dirt late model racing tour that has been steadily growing since its inception in 2017. Entering its sixth year, the series is expecting its biggest season to date with 23 races currently on the 2022 schedule. The series will be front-and-center on XR’s online streaming platform, XR+. Coverage will be live as well as on-demand.

“We’re excited to join forces with XR and bring some great grassroots late model racing from the High Plains and Rocky Mountain region to a national and global platform,” said High Plains Late Model Series Director Jerry Hanson. “I feel this is a great opportunity for the series, teams, tracks and our marketing partners to get some much-needed notoriety and show that late model racing is alive and well in this part of the country. The High Plains Late Model Series has been primarily funded by several local small businesses including my own. With the continued growth we have seen, this will be great exposure for current and new partners. The High Plains Late Model Series and its partners would like to thank XR for this outstanding opportunity, and we look forward to a long-lasting relationship, continued growth and a great 2022 season.”

The 2022 High Plains Late Model Series begins at Lincoln County Raceway (Neb.) on May 27-28 and finishes at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (Nev.) Nov. 9-12 as part of the Karl Chevrolet Duel in the Desert.

“The High Plains Late Model Series always puts on great action,” said XR Chief Operating Officer Dan Robinson. “To have this series on XR+ now fits perfectly. As XR grows in the late model world, we’re excited to showcase a tour that’s been growing right along with us. It’s going to be a fun year.”

After beginning in 2017 as a Colorado-based series with seven races at three tracks, the HPLMS has expanded to a now-23-race schedule spanning seven states. Each race will be at least $1,000-to-win and $300-to-finish this year. This season’s events will be the first to be broadcast on XR+.

Two-time and defending series points champion Scott Cimfl out of Arvada, Colo., will return to the series looking for a third title. He’ll join former champions Dakota Berry and Brandon Lewis as series regulars in 2022.

The 4th-annual HPLMS crown jewel Dave Garmann Memorial at I-76 Speedway (Colo.) will take place on July 30. With the help of sponsors, the planned payout is $4,000-to-win for the 40-lap feature with a total purse of nearly $20,000.
