I think this is great. Nascar would not be where it is now without ESPN. The races will now be shared by FOX, SPEED, TNT, ABC, ESPN and ESPN2.

http://insiderracingnews.com/PR2005/PostSeason/120705.html



About the agreements:

Beginning in 2007, each NASCAR season will be launched on FOX with the telecast of the Daytona 500. FOX will also carry NASCAR “Speedweeks” events including the Budweiser Shootout and Daytona Pole Qualifying. FOX will also broadcast the 12 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup races following the Daytona 500.


TNT will broadcast six consecutive NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series races (races 14 through 19).


The final 17 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series points races will be broadcast on ABC or ESPN. The final 10 races, the Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup, will be broadcast on ABC. The NASCAR Busch Series will be broadcast on ABC, ESPN or ESPN 2, with no less than four events on ABC.


SPEED will be home to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series with the exception of two events, which will be broadcast by FOX.


NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series qualifying, practice and “happy hours” will be broadcast on a combination of SPEED Channel, ESPN and ESPN2.


SPEED will broadcast the Gatorade Duels held each year during “Speedweeks” to determine part of the Daytona 500 starting order.


SPEED will also broadcast the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series All-Star Challenge and its companion all-star event, the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Pit Crew Challenge.


ESPN will launch specially NASCAR-branded news and information programming.


All broadcast partners will have new interactive rights, special “season preview” and “season end review” programming rights and other ancillary content.


NASCAR fans will be able to receive NASCAR coverage from an expanded range of outlets including highlights and live streaming, content from and on each network’s Web pages, datacasts and newly-developed multimedia programming.

Good move. ESPN belongs in NASCAR (although NASCAR's not sentimental, they went for the $$), and NBC frees up any conflict with their upcoming NFL deal.

Damn. I can't get away from NASCAR even on a Chief's site. I built Kevin Harvick's race shop for his Busch series and his trucks. He asked if I was a fan. I told him dog's chase their tails in a circle but I don't care to watch that either.

Boogity! Boogity! Boogity!:evil:

Yeah, NBC bites. Weber's about as pompously clueless as they come. Bestwick was better in the booth.

I always felt Benny Parsons was worse than Waltrip. MAN O MAN!

ROFL

At least DW knows who is driving what car. Some days I think Benny doesn't know what track he's at. Much like Madden.

**** Nascar. All it is is continous left-turns. Stupid Hicks.

How does one be considered an athlete by sitting down and driving a car?

Only hicks watch this shit, unfortunately there are alot of hicks around here.

I hate to hijack a topic, but since I am unable to start a new topic for some reaseon, please indulge me. I am a season ticket holder at Kansas Speedway. It is renewal time, and alas, I am broke. Therefore, I am offering my entire 2006 season including 4 races, 2 seats each for face of $580 + shipping to whoever can come up with the $$. They are great seats. Sec 233 row 34, seats 11-12
