Title: 60 Minute Pre-Race Shows...Not Many
Post by: jw on February 27, 2006, 03:53:31 AM
According to the NASCAR Media Guide..There are no 60 Minute Pre-race
shows until August 20 at Michigan on TNT.

The scheduled 60 minute pre-race shows are at:
1. Michigan (Race 2) - August 20
2. Fontana(Sony HD 500) - Labor Day Weekend
3. Talladega (Race 2)- October

2 Notes:
----------
1. None are currently scheduled on FOX/FX.
2. The media guide had no actual start times for both Atlanta races, so this fact is subject to change.

That's great news, JW!  There's absolutely no need for hour-lone pre-race shows.  There's never that much racing-related news and the rest of the nonsense the networks think is entertaining, most of us can certainly live without.

Besides, there's plenty of pre-show stuff on the Speed Channel.  Before yesterday's race, there were two shows--one at 11 am Eastern time, and another just before the green flag.
