Title: You didn't miss anything--again! (Part 2)
Post by: Desmond on September 04, 2007, 05:03:59 PM
As for the TV coverage all you boycotters missed, it was typical ESPN.  No significant changes in camera angles, race coverage, or what they chose to show.  Overemphasis on Dale Jr. again.  Also a celebrity interview with Stevie Wonder in the pit studio.

Oh, and at least one restart was missed.  It's regrettable in any event, but at least at short tracks it's somewhat understandable, as the time needed for commercial breaks doesn't fit neatly with the length of the laps.  But how did they manage that at Fontana? ???
