April 9th 2009 - The Racing Round Up Show Launches 25th Season Monday, April 13

A New Start Time of 7:00 p.m. In Store For Live Weekly Motorsports Radio Program

This Monday night, April 13th marks the launch of 25th year of The Racing Round Up Show, a popular Milwaukee-area weekly radio program that covers short track racing, plus Wisconsin, national and international motorsports series.

Executive Producer and Host Jim Tretow will again be joined by experienced show contributors to cover the local scene and the latest in NASCAR, IndyCar Series and the world of motorsports each week. The show airs weekly on Mondays from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., April through September, live on 540 ESPN (WAUK-AM) in Wisconsin, and via webstream on the show's website, The strength of the station's signal reaches west to Cambridge and West Bend, north to Sheboygan and south clear to Chicago Midway airport.

Each fast-paced 90-minute show airs live from Paulie's Pub & Eatery, 8031 W Greenfield Ave in West Allis - across the street from The Milwaukee Mile. The Racing Round Up Show is America's longest running weekly motorsports radio program to be held in front of a live audience.

With the new season comes a new start time of 7:00 p.m. CST, which is one hour later than in previous years. To aclimate racers and fans attending the show at the new start time, Paulie's Pub is offering 40-cent wings starting at 6:00 p.m., with trivia and free prizes awarded before and after each show.

"The motto still holds true - if it has a motor and a number on the side of it, we'll talk about it!" said Tretow, who's also a commentator on SPEED TV. "We enjoy interviewing pre-teen racers and short track standouts as much as the opportunity to have a NASCAR driver on the show. We provide racers a chance to get comfortable being interviewed, allow them to thank their supporters and give them recognition for the sweat equity they've invested in a sport we love to be involved in."

The Racing Round Up Show, produced by Racing Round Up Broadcasting and supported, encourages fan participation while welcoming racers of all ages on all levels to be on the show and to bring their racing machines, sponsors and friends. More information can be found on the show's website,
