then check out this petition to SpeedTV... to return Speed back to its "all schools of racing" roots...



http://www.petitiononline.com/SpdTV/petition.html

I love F1,,, I love Rally, I love Sports Cars at ALMS.... I have respect for NASCRAP as well... aside from takin a shot at its name... but parity / equality of programming is a must... if you show 75% Nascar and Trucks stuff..... may as well change the name of the channel to Nascar channel... (oh lord.. I should be careful of what I envision)

Honestly, this petition will not change anything. NASCAR revenue outweighs all other motorsports in the United States, combined. More people tune in to watch NASCAR televised practices than F1 Championship races. Be thankful they even continue to show them. NASCAR is here to stay and is only going to get larger

Asking what channel it is on is completely the wrong question. Channel lineups for EVERY area are different, so that won't help you.

But I'm fairly sure NASCAR BOUGHT the speedchannel so that petition won't do shit, unfortunately. I <3 WRC... I do get to watch my old roommates friend race on Sunday mornings from time to time though which is pretty cool.

I like the fact that F1 is NOT very popular in the states. If a bunch of hillbilly rednecks started waving Ferrari flags then I would get sick!!!

F1 is the most watched event on TV around the entire world...period. Who really cares if Americans "get it" or not?

I never really understood this attitude tbh

Americans will STOP liking something once it becomes main stream here in the States. Makes no sense.

starting a sentence with "honestly" is a general harbinger of deceit...

doesn't matter if you think it won't change a thing... it gives your voice a chance to be heard... and if the numb nuts at "nascarSpeed" channel won't diversify...other channels will notice the number of signatures on the petition and alter their programming/ sign contracts to accomodate and program... may take time... but we got time... bt sitting here idly allowing someone to program what they want me to see is the "herd" mentality and I just ain't that weak.

most live f1 races are at 6am Sunday.,... that's sort of the reason why more people snooze their way thru Nascar in the afternoon & prime time... and I support all forms of racing... the Capital hungry crooks see green in Nascar... but they'll see red if their myopia continues....

If you understood F1 and Ferrari, you'd understand what I'm saying.

It isn't about it being "mainstream" it is about people who don't know what racing is (NASCAR fans) all of a sudden converting to F1...it would make me sick!

I understand them both just fine, haha.

So you think they don't know what racing is.. why are you being so stereotypical? You think NASCAR isn't racing or that F1 is the only true form of racing? I mean, naturally there are differences between open wheel and stock cars.. but just because you only understand one of them doesn't mean that other people don't have a good understanding of both.

Ignorance is bliss, or so they say.

when you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

the thread asks that if you're interested and would like to support variety in programming on Speed... sign the petition...didn't think maligning each other would help....

my favorite programs on speed were always cool Vintage Ferrari/ Jag/ Aston Martin shows with alain decadenet... he'd drive the old cars around country roads with old school leather helmets on.... KLASSIC...

this is what I really want to see....oh...and BIG rig racing from Europe :)

I undserstand both (and others). NASCAR is to racing what Yugo is to Lexus. Yes, you CAN call NASCAR racing but there are few comparisons to F1.

BTW...you must be one happy person!

No one said anything about comparing F1 and NASCAR you dolt.

Terrible attempt at flaming me, how has ONE thing I've said led you to believe I am an ignorant person?
