Neil Goldberg, the producer for FOX Sports does a good job explaining how FOX tries to manage their commercials:

I just went to the site, and I had to restrain myself!  You should NEVER have let me know there was somewhere I could "talk" to the Nascar on Fox people directly!  I decided, however, to restrain myself until the next time they do something completely boneheaded and let loose then.

I figured this would be the best way for those who wanted to make suggestions for improvement, but the primary reason I sent this was because from what I have read on this board, the way the commercials were structured, people ought to know why and how FOX manages them for eaach race.

I want to thank the Matt Kenseth fan for the link to that page.

Except for Larry McReynolds' butt-kissing toward producer Neil Goldberg, I found the article very fascinating.  I got a good idea about what goes on behind the scenes of each of the telecasts.  And I finally found out who Jason Green was, because that was a question I had myself after the (last-ever?) Rockingham race.

Remember to look for my review early next week after the Auto Club 500.

Thanks for the link, 17RoushFan.  I will use it for sure.
What I didn't like about Larry's response was we watch for free.  I don't.  I live in an area where there is no tv available unless I have satellite.  I don't even have a choice of cable because it is not available in my country area either.  I have dish and in order to see all the programming I want because of the way they package their offers I pay over $800 per year.  Unfortunately the networks and Speed are in different packages and I have to buy both or do without.  I know $800 is not much to them but it is to me.  So free, I think not.
Thanks for listening to me bitch about his remarks.  I was not bashing.  :wink:

Vivian, you bitchin, nahhhhh, who woulda thunk it.  The link was cool. The best part to me was Steve Byrnes anwering the pit road assignment because to be honest(not that I would lie) the pit reporters are the best part of the show.  Make that Byrnes and Yocum.

I think I'll keep that link on file for after the California (Y-A-W-N) race.  With the cars spread all over the track and so little action, I'm sure Fox will be up to its' old tricks again! Sad

Hey, Macres, yep I be bitchin' about the prices.  I rather spend my money elsewhere but not much happening in my part of country.   :roll:
And I am going to keep the link to use later.  It was a very good insight.

Vivian, I couldn't agree with you more about the races being shown to us for "free."  We pay alright, not just with high cable and satellite costs, but by having to sit through so many annoying commercials.  

But when it comes right down to it, I'd probably pay $10 more a month on satellite to have them commercial-free or at least less commercials like we used to see on ESPN.  I don't think I'd ever be willing to go the "pay per view" route, especially with the quality of racing we see these days, but I'd sure pay a little more to not have to see a 100 Levitra ads or promos for silly Fox shows on my screen during the race.
