Corona, California - August 21, 2014 – Titan Gilroy has been named Grand Marshal for the MAVTV 500 INDYCAR World Championships - the final race of the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series to be held under the lights at Auto Club Speedway on Saturday, Aug. 30. As Grand Marshal, Gilroy will give the most famous command in motorsports "Driver's Start Your Engines."
When Bob Patison accepted the position of president of MAVTV American Real about four years ago, the attorney had little to no experience as a broadcast television executive.
But three years into Forrest Lucas’ endeavor to vertically integrate the motor sports genre, Patison has been a quick study in broadcast television, leading Corona-based MAVTV to quickly grow into a television network destination for everything motor sports.
A new reality TV series, to be released this fall, will document the life of entrepreneur Titan Gilroy whose dark past and bright future make him a particularly interesting type of hero. The show, called Titan: American Built is different from the Real Housewives and Road Rules type of reality show in that the idea is to show a message of hope rather than to titillate the viewer with bad behavior caught on camera.
Riverside, California - August 13, 2014 – And now for something completely different.
That phrase, so familiar to any fans of Monty Python's Flying Circus, is an accurate description of what awaits the Stronghold Motorsports off road racing team this weekend.
The team was formed to race in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series of short course events on man-made tracks and in the course of a normal weekend of practice, qualifying and racing, drivers Brandon Bailey and Larry Job may cover 50 or 60 miles.
Riverside, California - August 7, 2014 – On a rainy Saturday night at Glen Helen Raceway the dark cloud that had been hanging over the Stronghold Motorsports team finally lifted.
It was a moment commemorated not by a clap of thunder or a flash of light but by a checkered flag, and when it waved over the MAVTV/Toyo Tires/Solar World Pro 4 truck driven by Brandon Bailey it represented what Bailey called a definite "step in the right direction."
