Title: No Interest in the New NASCAR Nation

Is it safe to assume, since there have been no posts on this topic for a couple weeks that I'm not the only one who finds the new 'jiggle and giggle' version of this show totally insulting?  Guess that makes me a RACE fan, and not a member of the "Nascar Nation", eh?

I really feel for those who are producing the show, especially the "XM Satellite Radio Sound-Off."  They really have to strain to come up with questions for the drivers that have nothing to do with racing.

Two examples from last week:
--When you go to the supermarket, do you ask for paper or plastic?
--Do you ever iron your clothes?

As Dave Barry famously writes, "No, I am not making this up."

As for Sally's question, I think it's safe to assume that no one in this forum, except me, now watches NASCAR Nation.  Sad, but then again, Speed Channel should have expected this.

I don't watch anymore.  Just another time slot they are filling while I watch something waiting for something else on the weekend.  Guess you could say, "Week nights are all MINE now."  But somehow, I don't even think they are aware of how we feel or even care that they have lost us.
