SEEKING MORE DEMOS: NASCAR yesterday announced the Univision show "Arranque de Pasin, La Historia de Ela" will debut April 1 as the first-ever sports-themed original project for the net. The drama was shot at Homestead-Miami Speedway and also is NASCAR's first ever Spanish-language original production. Following the premiere, a new episode will debut each Monday, Wednesday and Friday for five consecutive weeks (NASCAR).
