Why is it that I just checked the Speedvision program line-up for Sunday and they only had WSB Valencia Race one listed ? What the hell is the deal they have room for ASSCAR and CRAP programing ?

Yeah that's two days after the race happens. I want to see the race the day of just like last year. It makes no sense that they can show Hot Rod TV and ASSCAR Tech and not show the second race. By the way are you a closet ASSCAR fan or what ?

I think it sucks too. I'm debating what to do. Do I stay off the internet so I can be surprised when I watch the second race 2 days later? or do I say "screw it" and just find out who won the race. If both races weren't going to be broadcast 'til tue. then I probably would choose to stay off the net so I could be surprised. But since its only race #2, I probably won't wait.

Racer X, I was "outed" as a NASCAR fan over 30 years ago.

It looks to me like Speed Channel is doing very well for us this year. They're showing both Supersport races on Fri., the SX on Sat., and on Sun. showing the AMA250s, WSB race 1, and the 200. Then on Sun. eve they're showing a CART race from Laguna. I'm not a CART fan, but I understand that Speed Channel can't survive on superbike racing alone, and needs to cover a big event in popular series.

Bit, I don't think it is possible to stay off the net until Tuesday. We are just going to have to suck it up and deal with hearing the results before seeing the race. The outcome alone spoils the ending but doesn't spoil the race itself.

Actually, now that Fox owns Speed Channel I think they can pretty much show whatever they want. But, there are time slots available between 9am and 11:30am (air time for the first race) where they could show both races. I don't understand why you would brodcast crap like ASSCAR Tech and Hot Rod TV when you know you have rabid Motorcycle fans wanting to see Race 2. I think the only reason they picked up CRAP or CART whichever is because they had no where to go. I mean ABC didn't want the floundering series. I used to be a CART fan before it turned into NASCAR without fenders. I will not be looking at the internet for two days because I do not want to know I want to be suprised when I see 155 do the double !/images/icons/cool.gif

Ok, I just checked TVGuide online and they had both WSBK races schedule at 8 and 9am Sunday. What's the deal ? I must email Sped (and I do mean Sped) Channel.
