Mitigatorinc.com has a successful webcast from Iowa Speedway, but the MitiGator Ford has disappointing finish
Over 500 people logged on to our webcast this past friday night to watch the Blue Ox 150 from Iowa Speedway. I suspect there could of been more, but the late start of the race because of the rain probably kept a lot of you folks on the east coast from logging on. You can still watch the broadcast in it entirety from our youstream page. This was the first event where you could listen to live in-race audio from the Gibson Motorsports crew. The webcast was a huge success and we are planning on doing more!
I wish the same could be said about the MitiGator Ford Fusion. The MitiGator Ford was strong during practice and was poised to try to race for the win at the extremely fast Iowa short track. However with qualifying being rained out the MitiGator Ford would be lined up in 10th spot to start the race. This would prove to be another case of bad luck, when the field took the green flag someone a few rows up missed a shift coming to the green flag and stacked up the field and caused a 4 car pileup. Because of the 10th place start, the MitiGator Ford had no where to go and was caught up in the lap 1 crash. the team salvaged what they could and eventually settled for a 11th place finish. A disappointing day to say the least.
Thanks again everyone who logged on and made our webcast a success.
