MAVTV has announced the return of “Lucas Oil… On the Edge!” On The Edge lived 10 seasons and 235 episodes on SPEED before the networks demise. Re-runs have been airing on MAVTV and with the huge support of its loyal fan-base.
Production began over the summer with events such as; Sand Drag Racing, Team Demolition Derby, Mud Bogs, Skid Plate Racing, RV Demolition Derby, Sprint Cars, Midgets, Figure 8’s, Motorcycle Flat Track and much, much more.
Show co-creator and executive producer Steve Grein said, “When Ken Stout and I came up with the concept 12 years ago, we never dreamed it would still be on television for this long, this strong.” Grein added, “When Forrest Lucas recently said that he personally enjoyed the show and that our viewers are asking for new episodes so lets go back into production, I just smiled from ear to ear and immediately began pre-production on a new season.”
Each “Lucas Oil… On the Edge!” episode is a motorsport event that is not normally seen on TV. Some of the shows are light hearted and some are hard-core, grassroots racing, but all are different from the mainstream type of motorsports on television today.
The new season will start airing on MAVTV on December 5th and air every Saturday thereafter following the premier. The ratings were very good when it aired elsewhere and MAVTV is expecting the same amount of viewership loyalty to transfer over.
“We are already looking at new events for 2016 and the list just continues to grow every day,” says Grein.
“OTE” is produced by Lucas Oil Studios in conjunction with MAVTV. The Studio will utilize its full arsenal of high definition equipment and award winning crew. This season will yield 15 episodes and in 2016 there will be at least 26 new episodes for the viewers to enjoy. All original shows will air on MAVTV and all archived shows will be available on the new LucasOilRacing TV app being launched January 2016.
