We will be renovating the site in the coming weeks to offer more motosports coverage. Stay tuned.
It has been a while but we are back. Unfortunately real life caught up to us and the priority list had to shift around a bit. Look for more content from us to be posted soon. Thanks for reading and following.
That’s right. Versus has now started a show for the fans by the fans. Fanarchy gives 7 fans every week the oppurtunity to discuss and debate about what is going on in the sports world. Launching June 7 and hosted by Zach Selwyn, Fanarchy features seven sports fans that appear on the show via webcam. These fans discuss such things on air such as what they would have done if they were the coach, bad ref calls, as well as other things that happen on and off the field. Selwyn stated:
This show is for every armchair quarterback, sports superfan and maniacal critic who has either become your best friend or annoyed you at your local bar. This is a chance for fans with real opinions to stand up for their beliefs and let the fate of their unique preaching and soap-boxing be decided on television, in front of a national audience. Plus, it sure beats taking your shirt off at Lambeau Field in January.”
Fanarchy is the first show of its kind. Every week the two guests on the show that can’t keep up with the antics of the rest of the guests on will be eliminated making way for another two fans. The top fan on the show will be granted immunity for that week and will appear on next weeks show. The prize at the end of the show, rewarding the top fan with a brief platform for an unrestrained rant on the topic of their choosing.
Some of the topics that have been discussed on Fanarchy already are:
- If you were a mid level athlete, would you take steroids to become a superstar?
- Baseball is boring, If you were commisioner, what rules would you change?
- If you were a celebrity athlete who would you pick for a supermodel girlfriend and who would you have in your entourage?
- Terrell Owens was recently denied from renting a house in Buffalo. Would you be TO’s roommate?
If you think you have what it takes to be on Fanarchy, you can submit your webcam audition videos to www.VERSUS.com/FANARCHY. That website will also feature highlights from previous episodes, as well as voting for which fan makes it into the “On Deck Circle” to have a chance to be on the show. You can watch Fanarchy Tuesday nights at 10:30 ET on Versus.
Luczo Dragon will roll out it’s new livery on the #2 car driven by Raphael Matos at Milwaukee this weekend. The car will also sport this paint scheme at Iowa, Richmond, Watkins Glen, Toronto, Edmonton, Ohio and Infineon. This is definitely a more elaborate Marine livery than they had on the car on the Streets of St. Petersburg. This time the Marines scheme will include the Marines colors as well as the Eagle, Anchor, and Globe emblem.
Raphael Matos finished in third place last season in the Firestone Indy Lights and went on to win the Firestone Indy Lights championship. Matos and Luczo dragon go into the race this Sunday optimistic.
Milwaukee is a track I really like. I was very fast there last year and finished third in Indy Lights. I think it will be a good place for us. It is a track where the driver can make a little more of a difference because it is more technical and challenging than the high banking, flat out ovals.”
Although Matos has had 3 DNF’s in his past 4 starts, he is still 2nd in the IndyCar rookie points standings only and is only 9 points behind Robert Doornbos. He ran strong in all the races before he had his on track incidents. He is looking to turn his seaosn around at Milwakee.
The Milwakee Mile can be watched this Sunday at 3:30 p.m. on ABC.
