Roanoke's 'Motor Madness' To Be on National TV

For those of you who can't get enough television in your lives, consider this: the SPEED Channel (which I didn't know existed) and its show "My Classic Car" (which I also didn't know existed) will feature a segment on the Star City Motor Madness (which I did know existed) April 10, 10 p.m., April 12 at 3 p.m. and April 24 at 9:30 a.m.

The show apparently is available to 79 million households and claims a million viewers a week (by contrast, Rush Limbaugh says he has 25 million a week for his radio show). The show was taped in June 2010 and examines some of the best of the 500 cars and trucks. that took part.

You can preview the segment here. According to a Roanoke City press release, co-chairman Tim Cox said, "It's been our deram to [use] people's nostalgia and great love of classic cars and trucks as a vehicle [so to speak] to bring visitors to Roanoke. In just 10 years, Star City Motor Madness has grown from a small show to a major East Coast event, attracting tourists who visit for the weekend--or longer--and really get to enjoy the star city." He did mention, too, that the whole deal is free.
