Miami, FL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–September 10, 2004–mun2 television, the only cable network targeting young U.S. Latinos with original programming that reflects their lifestyle, was invited by Time Warner Cable to participate in this year’s South Texas Scorcher, which is looking to be the biggest event ever to happen in the Rio Grande Valley. The South Texas Scorcher will take place at the Hidalgo Dome on Saturday, September 11, from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m.

“Cars, vehicle modification and racing overall are very popular with our audience and we’re always interested in exposing events that showcase this culture,” said Yolanda Foster, Vice President of Programming & Promotions for mun2. “The Scorcher is a motor vehicle extravaganza that our viewers won’t want to miss.”

“We welcome mun2 as our guest for the South Texas Scorcher,” said Jimmy Kelly, Marketing Manager at Time Warner Cable. “We felt that ‘SpeedLogic’ and the event’s car show were a perfect match, and we’re also very pleased to have Alex III hosting the music stage for what promises to be the biggest event in the Rio Grande Valley.”

mun2 will be on site at the Hidalgo Dome with its “SpeedLogic” show crew, filming the Scorcher Car Show, the nation’s biggest car show featuring 2005 vehicles. “Speed Logic,” which airs Monday through Friday at 7:30 p.m., is a high-speed show whose stars are cars, motorcycles and motorboats.
