Fox interested in moving some races to SPEED: UPDATE: Fox has held informal discussions with NASCAR about a new TV rights agreement that would allow the network to put some of its Sprint Cup races on Speed. David Hill, Fox Sports chairman, said Fox would like to see some of the 13 regular-season races it televises on Speed. A Fox source said the company could ask for as many as six races for the network. Fox is five years into an eight-year, $1.76 billion contract with NASCAR that mandates Fox televise all of its Sprint Cup races on its broadcast channel except for two non-points, specialty events - the Sprint All-Star Race and the Gatorade Duels from Daytona, which air on Speed. If it wants to move regular-season Cup races to Speed before its contract expires in 2014, it would have to amend its agreement. Fox sources were skeptical such a move would be made before the contract ends. The move would allow Speed to use live NASCAR broadcasts to increase the license fee that cable and satellite operators pay each month, which is currently around 30 cents, according to sources. In addition to talking about putting Sprint Cup races on Speed, Fox has raised the possibility of making NASCAR a stakeholder in Speed and turning it into a joint-venture project. Sources familiar with those conversations said that they have been ongoing for several years. By partnering with NASCAR on Speed, Fox could avoid competing with the property if it decided to launch its own channel.(Sports Business Journal)(6-20-2011)
UPDATE: Even though Fox confirmed recently it was considering moving some of its races to Speed, NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France said Sunday at Infineon Raceway that the question is still open. "We're having a lot of discussions right now," France told Sporting News before the Toyota/Save Mart 350. "We're unsure where that's going to go. We're having good discussions, and they're our partner for a long time. We've got to make sure that all of our interests get met. We're not at that place (of moving the races to Speed). There are going to be a lot of discussions. That's just not a direction we're going right now." As to the Cup schedule itself, France says there won't be as many big changes as there have been over the past two seasons. "I'm not anticipating any significant changes," France said. "There are always requests and always tweaks-but nothing like we've done in the last couple of years, when we made some significant changes, so I don't anticipate that."(Sporting News)(6-27-2011)

Meh. I don't see SPEED having more races as a problem... but I want ESPN gone. Give TNT the whole second half of the season.

Speed is good with it's NASCAR coverage, so I have no problem with this. Like Tanner, I want to see ESPN gone from the schedule, but it won't happen ever.

I heard about this 2 days ago.

If I were NASCAR I would not want to do this do to several people who don't have the SPEED channel. Thus, losing MORE VIEWERS.

TNT isn't that much better than ESPN though. I can't stand Adam Alexander. Wally Dallenbach is no good and Kyle Petty is way too opinionated. Then there's Lindsay Czarniak who just can't talk. They have decent camera angles. But they are better than ESPN.

I'd love SPEED getting some races, or Versus geting some.

Bob Jenkins as I have heard isn't interested in NASCAR anymore. SPEED has PRAWBLEMS Rick Allen, Phil Parsons and takeover douche Michael Waltrip in the booth. If Waltrip was replaced with someone descent, SPEED would be much better.

Take ESPN out if Bob Jenkins doesn't return there. It would be nice if CBS gets back into the fold taking the second half of the season. Or TNT, NBC, or Versus. I hate the "ESPN on ABC" idea. It sucks. The fact that Marty Reid and Jerry Punch are there doing the second half just bores people to death. Maybe we can intise TNN to come back and do some races, but under one condition, though: put Eli Gold back in the TNN Motorsports forefold. Another idea? How about TBS or USA? They did some races in the 80's and 90's? Why can't they do that in this decade? Why? Because Dickhead Turner is too pussy and won't invest that money towards NASCAR.

Now that you mention it CBS would be a wise way to go because all you need to get CBS is a tv and a antenna.

I don't mind ESPN, just Dale Jarrett and their horrible camera angles. I hate FOX for Darrell Waltrip and DIGGERRRRR. And I hate TNT for "That's Incredible".

I prefer TNT the most though as I find them the most entertaining, plus they have wide open Daytona.

Waltrip is entertaining IMO, and Digger isn't even that prevalent anymore.

TNT is better than they were, but ALLEN NEEDS TO GO BACK THERE.

Don't be silly. They are annoying, but the reason you hate them is because of their affiliation with Toyota.

Yep. I don't like either Waltrip. I think FOX could get a WAY better person than DW in the booth.
