CreateSpace, part of the Amazon.com, Inc. group of companies, and Team Marketing announced the DVD release of the 2010 Daytona 500, along with classic NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races and the recently broadcast 2009-2010 BCS Bowl Championship Series all through CreateSpace DVD on Demand.
According to the statement, the CreateSpace DVD on Demand platform provides a low-risk, highly cost-effective and inventory-free means of releasing a large selection of Team Marketing’s library of sporting events. In addition, CreateSpace’s fast-to-market DVD distribution capability makes it possible for fans to order from Amazon.com a DVD copy of a sporting event on the day of the event and have it in their hands in a matter of days, versus weeks for traditional DVD distribution methods.
“Our unique DVD on Demand platform allows us to make a wide range of top sports content available on DVD to a broad base of consumers rapidly and inexpensively,” said Dana LoPiccolo-Giles, managing director, CreateSpace. “We are happy to join with Team Marketing to give fans access to DVDs of exciting sporting events as soon as they happen, and collectable content from more than five decades of NASCAR racing.”
“Team Marketing is not only able to expand the selection of NASCAR titles available to our customers, but our new relationship with CreateSpace ensures our titles remain in-stock when customers order,” said Clayton Nichols, vice president, Team Marketing. “Making the titles available on-demand allows us to not only give new life to classic sports content, but also to get a sporting event DVD to a customer while it’s still a hot topic at the water cooler.”
The NASCAR DVD series, now available for pre-order, will excite sports fans with full races available for the first time on DVD, some showcasing historic footage dating as far back as the 1960s. Compiled from the races NASCAR fans consider watershed events for the sport, some of the series’ key racing moments include the first television broadcast of the Daytona 500, Dale Earnhardt’s historic victory over Bobby Labonte during NASCAR’s 50th season and Jeff Gordon’s becoming the youngest driver to win Daytona.
College football fans can now collect their favorite Bowl games from the 2009-2010 season via CreateSpace DVD on Demand technology – all without commercial interruption. Games include the 2010 Citi BCS National Championship, where the Alabama Crimson Tide topped the Texas Longhorns; 2010 AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, during which the Ole Miss Rebels used a second-half rally to win the game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys; and the 2010 Allstate Sugar Bowl, where Gators quarterback Tim Tebow led Florida to victory over the Cincinnati Bearcats. All of these games are available on Amazon.com and include special bonus features, making them a great addition to any sports aficionado’s collection.
