CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (October 10, 2022) – The Chattanooga Motorcar Festival Sponsored by Millennium Bank has announced that the October 14-16 third annual event in the Scenic City will be live streamed each day to car enthusiasts around the world with the help of the Torque Media Group. Also, the popular Torque Show will air live on, and available on both the Chattanooga Motorcar Festival and The Torque Show Facebook pages.
Additionally, as part of a special programming weekend on the PowerNation TV’s FAST Channel called the ‘Great Car Show Weekend,” the two one-hour Torque Show Live specials from the Chattanooga Motorcar Festival will also air on all four FAST platforms (Samsung, Roku, Vizio, LG, Freevee).

“We are excited this year to have racing champions Justin Bell and Tommy Kendall broadcast live from the Chattanooga Motorcar Festival,” said Festival founder Byron DeFoor. “To be able to reach racing and car fans around the world and share with them the unique activities of the Festival is very special to us, as we continue to bring awareness to neuroscience research. 
“From the vintage/historic racing at the Pace Grand Prix at The Bend to the Canossa Fall Rally Chattanooga, and the dynamic Concours d’Elegance, viewers will be treated to a rare experience.”
“It is a real honor to have been chosen to share with the world what I feel is quickly becoming one of the premier automotive events in North America,” said Bell, co-founder and host of the Torque Show. “I attended the Festival last year as a VIP and everything about it made me want to come back. The only thing missing was the type of global coverage that we at Torque know how to do really well. We are committed to bringing the viewer to the heart of the action, with guests and coverage of the incredible cars in a way that showcases the event and its host, the city of Chattanooga. We can’t wait to share such a wonderful event with everyone and give the Festival the recognition it duly deserves.” 
In a statement, Executive Producer Jason Jacobson said, “Building on our experience over the last four years covering premier motoring events around the world and our experience in both the world of live network TV and livestreaming, it is our goal to shine the spotlight on this incredible event to the viewers.”
And, as Hall of Fame champion race car driver Tommy Kendall said, “This event is totally unique, as they have built a race track right in the middle of Chattanooga. This is the perfect mix of racing, concours, auction and lots more. We promise that viewers will not be disappointed.”
