HBO Pay-Per-View To Carry Prelude to the Dream

Racing fans will get a special treat Wednesday night (8 p.m. ET) when HBO Pay-Per-View plays host to the Prelude to the Dream, a race supporting four of the nation’s top children’s hospitals.

Stars from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series will convene at the Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

Drivers will tackle the half-mile clay oval track as part of four separate teams:

There is still an individual race winner, but the teams are racing for their respective children’s hospital. The lowest team score wins, and only the top-five drivers from each team will be scored.

Levine Children’s Hospital, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, and Children’s Medical Center Dallas will each receive a donation from the event based on the results and proceeds raised from the pay-per-view.

“For the fifth year in a row we will bring live action from Eldora into living rooms across the country,” said Tammy Ross, vice president, HBO Pay-Per-View & Sports. “With this year’s new start time and enhancing the format of the telecast, race fans will have a chance to settle in at home and prepare for a great night of continuous, live racing action.”
