I don't think I would fit into the Nascar scene. I am a motorcyclist, I wear leather, I don't drink before I ride, I'm nice to other motorists, I do not choose to have a mullit haircut, and my truck does not have a gun-rack in the rear window. I have had arguements with my redneck neighbor sevral times about how boring tolet bowl racing really is. I just don't see the logic in driving around in a circle all after noon. But then agian, Isn't it the redneck that show up to those parking lot carnivals to stand in line to ride the rides that spin them around tell there tossing there lunch. Now thats logic.:hurl:

BORING

Theres nothing wrong with gun racks, if you keep the guns on the floor they'll get scratches from all the beer cans.

NASCAR is about as fun to watch as the Teletubbies. WRC, now THERES some racing.

I guess I'm the only one who's a NASCAR fan 'round here. I voted no because the only thing I like more than motorcycles is Winston Cup racing.

I'd rather watch NASCAR personally, but I understand everyone's anger. My local FOX station cuts off NASCAR races to show Red Sox games, which I usually find on TBS at the same time.


BTW, some of you have a lot of hostility toward NASCAR, huh?

Fact is, it brings in ratings higher than other sports here in the US. In Europe, F1 car racing and motorcycle racing are the kings.

Yes

Yes I would be angry - and yes I WAS mad! But...they did show it later on, and I can't get too mad unless this happens all the time. Unfortunatly, Speed Channel (ugh :hurl: ) is the only place to catch Bikes & Rally. I do think it would be a good idea to move all things related to NASCAR to it's own station - I mean everything oval, even drag racing. Sorry don't mean to offend anyone, but the old Speedvision did not have much of oval or drag racing, and I never changed the channel when I am home. They also NEVER cut into bike racing and showed exactly what was on the online TV schedule.

Oh well...anyone up for some fund raising to buy the name "Speedvision" and buy the rights to WSBK, AMA, Rally, F1 and all other roadracing series? :p

I always had Speedvision on back in the day. In fact the only reason I have cable is because I want to watch motorcycle racing and Formula 1.

Let me ask you this, If you were watching NASCAR and motorcycle racing suddenly came on would be mad? I voted yes by the way for the Poll.

Let me ask you this... have you ever seen a grown man running through the fields with his head shaved? Once you have seen this... you are never quite the same :eek: . I also voted the affirmative on that one.

Don't you guys remember several years back when nascar was not that big a deal to the masses, and it didn't get the coverage that it does today.I really believe our time is coming.( widespread coverage). just like nascar..

wow

As Robert mentioned above, Speed TV says: "SPEED Channel admits a mistake was made but says it won't happen again…". Maybe I am a puppet, but I believe them.

That takes a lot of guts to admit it was a mistake. ;)
