NASCAR sucks! I wish SPEED CHANNEL would go back to it's roots

Ratings Disaster: NHMS Chase Race Least Watched NASCAR Chase Premiere Ever
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/4...iting-1st-race











NASCAR has become SO boring and the ratings are in the crapper. I hope SPEED channel will wake up to this and start showing more diverse programming like they used to. World Rally, nostalgia drags, Pikes Peak. The current line up of NASCAR and continuous repeats of PINKS and that boring tow truck show. COME ON SPEED CHANNEL! I pay extra to have you in my cable package and you're delivering CRAP!

I'm better off watching motorsports on You Tube.

It would be super tight like prom night if they'd just show some grassroots motorsports. They don't understand that every other sports news outlet shows the top three tiers of stock car racing, and ESPN has modern drag racing on lockdown. They need to show more weird crap, and encourage involvement in local racing, and fill the holes in the programming ESPNClassics style. How badass would it be to turn on some late-night Speed and watch old F1 races, LSR/Bonneville coverage, and movies about those days (Thunder Road/2 Lane Blacktop/WFI/etc)?

Give me a dollar.

i agree and gearheads would pay to see their favorite racing sport and etc! speed channel is geared towards the advertisers money (hince nascar) and not what viewers want to see.

Once Fox took over Speed, it became the NASCRAP channel.
