Speed sold out to Fox, No more Raceday, Victory Lane etc.. Now they will be including crap like Baseball, Football and even GOLF!!! How wonderful is that? These so-calles Sports only involve one ball. Whereas MOTOR sports you need a set of balls to go fast. What the #### is world coming to? Before you know it, treehuggers will want catylitic converters on Top fuel cars,or make them extinct too!!!

I had it on early the morning to see what changed. everything's still advertised as speed channel, and a re-run of pinks all out was on at around 7:00am. not sure what's going on.

"Lots of racing"? No, lots of NASCAR racing, not much of anything else (except NASCAR talk shows). There's more to the motorsports world than just NASCAR. You cant even FIND F1 practice or qualifying and it only takes about 2 hrs of airtime, but you can see every second the Cup boys are on the track. They just showed a 1-1/2 hour practice followed by Truck qualifying, followed by Cup Final Practice. Gimme a break. Show some WRC coverage or something...

Fox ruined Speed over a year ago. Now it's just "official". They've completely sold out the fans that made them the biggest, to make an easy buck with NASCAR. 14 talk shows about NASCAR that just keep regurgitating the same 5 minutes worth of info. Whoopee. I could care less what Jeff Gordon's team chef made for lunch or who's in a made-up, almost scripted fight with who this week. Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against NASCAR in terms of the actual racing, it's the BS the people running the series keep pulling.

For what it's worth , I don't know. But , what we all can do is spend 5 mins and complain to your local cable company. I didn't hear anything about Speed going out of business so make sure your cable company knows we missed it!!!!

still got it here in canada. wonder when that will stop. as much as pinks was full of drama, it's better than having no drag racing to watch. passtime is awesome, and we watch it most evenings as a family. my 8 year old's getting pretty good at guessing times! gonna miss that when it's gone.

NBC sports channel got all the Indy & F1 before Speed was even gone, Ch. 220 on DTV.
Maybe it wont be too bad with them having 2 channels, Fox 1 & Fox 2, Ch. 219 & 618.

Oh, I still get the F1 broadcasts on NBC Sports. My point was that other than NASCAR talkshows & practices, for the last few years Fox has been ignoring their viewers' requests & broadcasting everything BUT most of the other forms of actual racing.

Yeah, Speed had gone down hill pretty bad. I honestly can't understand why anyone would want to watch practice over & over, combined with the other crap shows you listed above. :lol:
The Fox deal had probably been in the works for a while, waiting for contracts to end etc. so Speed wasn't spending any $$ for new programming, just showning cheap crap.
