NASCAR Time for GEN 7 Car

After yesterdays hype for a fantastic race with better racing NASCAR better get moving on a Gen7 car because Gen 6 ain't no better than the cars it was supposed to replace. As for the broadcast, Darrel Waltrip sure has a thing for the ponytail princess that it made me sick when they did show racing, 3 laps and a commercial, 3 more laps and 5 more commercial.

I'm going to cross post this in the TV Features as well, tonights Nationwide race is on ESPN News and not ESPN 2.

Re: NASCAR Time for GEN 7 Car

It was a great Nationwide race, was it going to be Kyle or Kevin or Brad (looked like Sam Jr from the start)?  All looked like they could win it in the last 1/3 of the race, but Brad (yeah) got ahead and never let Kevin catch him (he was coming closer each lap though). Smiley Very Happy

Re: NASCAR Time for GEN 7 Car

Both NNS and Sprint cup races at 'Dega were excellent!  I like that flashes of the two car tandem showed up in the Cup race, too.  Ecveryone thought that Tandem was a new thing but Kenny Wallace helped Dale Earnhardt win in 2000, using the Tandem. They were 18th and 19th with 2 laps to go.

Re: NASCAR Time for GEN 7 Car

Loved the Aussie V8 Supercars from Austin - unfortuntely, I bet that the teams in the pits oitnumbered the fans in the stands.  Okay, not that bad but lots of empty seats.  Cool track.

Re: NASCAR Time for GEN 7 Car

Went to the IRL race Saturday night at TMS.  What an exciting race.  The new package they have this year in IRL turned the race into a tire/fuel strategy.  Helio "Spiderman" Castronevis raced a supurb race and became the 1st 4 time winner by being able to stretch a tank of gas and set of time over 60 laps. Most teams were pitting between 40/50 laps.

Great you saw a great race oufan, Pocono was nothing but another Jimmie show (yeah, I tried to root for him the last 2 years, but couldn't), looks like he going for six time. Smiley Mad

Yeah, JJ winning isn't great fo the sport.  For once, Pocono was boring.  Not sure if it was the repave or simply JJ.  It would hae been interesting seeing JJ and Newman conserve, if the yellows had not came out.  I think that Pocono and New Hampshire should trace three small main events on Sunday and invert the lineups. 

 

The Nationwide race from Iowa was good.  Max Papis had a wild ride.  Love Trevor Bayne.

That was good seeing Trevor win at Iowa.  I was watching Pocono late Sunday nite, as there was too much to watch w/Nationwide Sunday too, but found Jimmie won and deleted the race half way thru.  Wouldn't have minded if anybody but Jimmie or Smoke won and would've watched the whole race. Smiley Very Happy

I know that Johnson is paid to drive race cars and he does a good job at it but it sure gets boring.  I would not be surprised in NASCAR doesn't go to some kind of inversion setup at some tracks to encourage passing and erase boredom.  The old ASA (American Speed Association), where D1ck Trickle, Mark Martin, Kulwicki, the Wallaces and so on got started, would often have Triple 100 lappers at short tracks.  First race was straight up by time trials (Top Qualifier on the pole), the second one a COMPLETE inversion from race 1.  The last place car would start on the pole and race 1 winner on the tail.  The third race saw half of the field inverted.  NASCAR could do that and maybe give a single point to each "heat" winner but the main points would come from who had the best overall finish.  In order to do good, you have to pass instead of just following.

Re: NASCAR Time for GEN 7 Car

So long ABC/ESPN/TNT.  NBC has outbid ABC/ESPN/TNT for rights to air the 2nd half of the NASCAR season starting in 2015.  A press conference should be forthcoming.

NASCAR Press release here.  Looks like NBC and it's affiliates will also be broadcasting the Nationwide, K&N Series, Whelen Modified and NASCAR Toyota (Mexico) series.

Re: NASCAR Time for GEN 7 Car

Good I can't stand Kyle Petty, Wally, and the crew that announces the races.  They call wrong car numbers and drivers, and just basically get things totally wrong.  The last race at NH they didn't even know what lap the race was on at one point. 

 

I wish they would just let the FOX crew do it all year.

I wholeheartedly agree! 

 

Now going back to ESPN/TNT "losing out," not much of a surprise there as ESPN stated earlier that they were looking to shed the entire Nationwide deal and I think that indicated that they were not going to be as NASCAR-centric, anyway.  My big issue is that I consider each NASCAR "Cup" race to be like a "game of the week" and for some races, = to a Super Bowl and as such, they should be on broadcast TV.  ESPN only shows 1 or 2 cup races on "regular TV."  I pay for my dad to get "basic cable" and after FOX's coverage ends, he pretty much misses out.  Now in 14 or 15, FOX may move some to FS1.  Again, I feel that Cup races belong where most everyone can see them.
