Urban American Outdoors, a locally based national reality sports show that depicts hunting, fishing and the outdoor lifestyle, has dedicated a show to Kansas Speedway, featuring NASCAR driver Martin Truex Jr. and his crew chief Kevin “Bono” Manion.
Truex and Manion flew to the Kansas City area to participate in a hunt with Urban American Outdoors host Wayne Hubbard. The show will feature the hunt and the events leading up to it plus ideas and tips for cooking the harvested game. (Check local listings for air times).
Kansas Speedway President Jeff Boerger, an avid hunter, is also featured on the show discussing racing and hunting. A future show featuring Boerger is in the planning stages.
“Being able to see a young NASCAR driver away from the track, doing something he loves outside of racing is an important part of appealing to fans,” said Boerger. “A lot of race fans are avid hunters and being featured on Urban American Outdoors allows us to showcase Kansas Speedway to a new audience.”
The harvested game was donated to local food banks.
Urban American Outdoors is a weekly award winning reality show for the “urban sportsman” and is the first outdoors show that features the Outdoor Lifestyle from a different perspective. It airs both in the U.S. and internationally. Syndication of the show includes the Black Family Channel, American One Sports and Fox Sports International.
