I still don't like how speed has been changed, or run lately, but at least they realized that it was bad to cut into a live race that a lot of us were watching.

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. ;)

Do You Also Believe Cows Will Fly?

All right, fill me in. I've been getting HOSED at work since Sunday and WAS going to catch up tonight on some races I taped. So what am I missing on the tape from Sunday????? I don't want to get into a race and half way through and find Bubba Halfwit running in circles. That would be like quiting half way though sex, no climax.

The only good thing about NASCAR is giving a few idgits at work shit all the time and them having no comeback other than 'it's the most popular racing in America'. Yah, and Jerry Springer's been on for ages but that doesn't mean it's any good.

The live coverage of the AMA supersport race that was on in the early afternoon, 2pm et or something like that, was cut short after a couple of laps to show highlights of a NASCAR race that was already over. The supersport race was shown again around 9pm, so depending on which one you taped it may get cut short to show interviews of people that should be subtitled.

This is a constant complaint in my house. My husband can't stand NASCAR. Yes, it is very popular in America, but is it quality racing, no. As my husband always says, "go really fast, and turn left, any idiot can do that". I have to agree, F1, motorcycle, WRC, these all take some obviously serious skills. No NASCAR in my house. He thinks NASCAR should have their own channel. Get it the hell off his "real racing" channel so I don't have to hear him complain anymore every time he turns to the SPEED channel and NASCAR's on again.

cool

First it was harley threads, then oil threads. Now it's nascar threads. Count me in.

I'm too cheap to get cable, so it's either nascar or a bunch of men standing around on a grass field spitting and scratching their privates or a bunch of men in tight spandex slapping each other on their butts and groping each others crotches or a bunch of guys running around a wooden surface rubbing up against each ther as much as possible. I understand that after each of these activities, they shower with each other.

Yeah, I'll watch nascar.

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..
Maybe this new movie "14K" will help.

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
Maybe Jay Leno would be a good guy to bring this up to? He's got LOTS of money, know's showbiz, and he's a huge bike/car nut.

Hmmmm NASCAR

NASCAR is great entertainment -
First I know all of you have watched a dog run in circles chasing his tail and laughed, so we all know this kind of behavior is real entertainment.
Secondly I have had many a laugh on a boring drive down the freeways of america when I came across a pick up with NASCAR painted across the side or tail gate in big red letters with a paintbrush.
This behavior is not restricted to southern USA either, it has found it's way onto Canadian highways as well.

Oh well NASCAR works on the KISS theory (keep it simple stupid) and seems to make lots of people happy. As long as I get my two wheeled tuesdays I won't be on a war path.
And don't knock gun racks in the truck, you think I am going to put my guns on the floor? I don't think so.

anytime i am watching a show, and it gets interrupted, it bothers me. i don't know if i'd go so far as saying i'd get mad but i don't like it when special news reports interrupt my programming.

NASCAR took off in ratings around the same time that country music became REALLY popular and yuppies started buying pickups (causing the prices to skyrocket which is another subject all together). city folk who dress like idiots, call themselves "Maverick" because they think its cool then go to a country bar to dance but not drink and then get mad because the place has to close becuase it has no income. its all got to do with wishing they had the "down home" mentality. They are Redneck wannabe's. hell, most of them are afraid to go into their backyards at night. or even go camping.

fact: more people drive cages than bikes.
conclusion: more people would rather watch cages than bikes.

Real rednecks don't fake it-i enjoy waching NASCAR just as much as i enjoy watching bike racing (dirt included). my preference is actually to be riding, rather than watching others do it.
