Last Thursday, I compiled some of the best comments written across the Internet by fans of Speed, the network that was shuttered and turned into Fox Sports 1 two weeks ago. Since that post, Speed fans haven't quieted down, obliterating our comment sections on nearly every post about Fox Sports 1 to rant about how much they hate Fox Sports 1 and miss Speed.
And honestly, for all of the griping, I'm actually beginning to understand the rage of Speed fans. After all, six years ago, I was pretty devastated when Nickelodeon took their Games and Sports network behind the barn and replaced it with The N (whatever the hell that it), and later, TeenNick. All I wanted was my reruns of Legends of the Hidden Temple and Guts, just like Speed fans just want their litany of reality shows that they couldn't see anywhere else.
And for what it's worth, they may have a point. Fox Sports 1's viewership totals are behind Speed's in the network's first two weeks. Without any further ado, here's the second edition of "Speed fans hate Fox Sports 1", exclusively containing comments from Awful Announcing. As always, all comments are unedited.
Who in the world decided to take speed off the air my god another sports program channel really no speed channel come on this sucks now what I can watch chopped but nothing about cars which is a large industry you have gear heads every where that watched speed n all the shows including Barret -Jackson action . also gearz and all the other shows like pinks and motorcycle racing this sucks from user 1968camaross
Where the MFH did my Gearz go. Who is the low intelligence moron who eliminated the Speed Channel. I have been looking for a reason to tear that GD dish off my home and I think I am going to cancel the whole shebang, throw out the GD Dish, put up an antennae and suck in the FREE channels in the SFBA. I'll just build on my blue ray collection and start a Netflix account! I am sick and tired of these morons who think they know better than the American TV Watching public. First it was my Star Trek, then Cnet, now Current TV for some bunch of Newsy Towel Head Loving FREAKS. NOW they think they can just cancel my Gearhead Programming and I'm just gonna let them roll over he. Good by DirtecTV!?! from user BigPaul
What Fox Sports needs is a Colonoscopy to see where your brain is. Who are the morons that cancelled SPEED CHANNEL, and replaced it with 'nothing worth my time', or millions of "motorheads" who live for our 'CARS' and the sports we prefer. I will refuse to watch fox sports, until you bring back our SPEED CHANNEL. You really lost it and the millons you once had. from user Ray240z
What a stupid mistake, dropping Speed, and starting Fox Sports 1. I don't watch ESPN, because I don't care about Hockey, Speed Skating, Football, Etc. Speed was on whenever I am in the garage working, which is probably 7 hours a day. I miss all the good auto, and racing oriented shows. Shame on FOX. I am another person who won't watch any of the Fox channels now. BRING BACK SPEED. from user Pat50
I'm done. So irritated in West Virginia, another football channel??? Come on!! I contacted my local service provider and turned in disconnection notice. So disappointed in FOX and refusing to support any of their affiliates. I will use my time at local car and racing events with the money I would have paid cable. I'm refusing to support any sponsor affiliated with that stupid new FOX SPorts 1 boring...... from user stanleyzorro
All of my car shows, car repair shows, collector car shows are gone. Not on the air anymore. No more Stacy doing donuts in a Year One Bandit Trans Am, or climbing mountain trails in some crazy 4X4 that he just welded together. NO, Just another ESPN Wannabee Channel sadly similar to how Comcast destroyed Versus with my fishing and hunting shows. Now both of those lame ass channels are playing European Soccer games instead. Seriously. Fox and Comcast can both go screw themselves. from user dariuszsite
Fox Sports has the effect of video morphine, without the fun. I got DISH primarily for SPEED TV, TCM and the History Channels secondly.
I'm thinking of pulling the plug on DISH because SPEED is no longer available. I'm not crazy about paying for sports channels I don't want to watch. I'm NOT into the usual jock sports and can live without DISH, if there is no SPEED.
It's difficult to stomach Fox at times, this is one of those times. Fox Sports SUCKS! from user williekiote
I am still a more than a little irate over the "replacing" of the Speed Channel by Fox1, this morning I conducted a survey of my own by going through the menu guide for a full week, from 6:00 this morning thru 6:00 next Monday morning, I came up with a total of 13 hrs. of Motorsports programming. Pardon my language, but this is exquisite BULLSHIT, that's less than 8% of air time devoted to Motorsports, pitifully little for a channel that's supposedly replacing the Speed Channel.Cloyd Moody from user cloydmoody
speed how could you do this to your loyal fans? tuned in for race news and all I heard was football, baseball,fights (not the ones on the track) etc. you look at the listings of topics and its like nascar got an honorable mention in the "OTHER" column. Motor sports is the ONLY sport that will ban you for life if you fail a substance abuse test. Now we have to get our small amount of coverage and we have to hear stories glorifying substance abusers (players in all the other sports) wife beaters, murders (both by hand and cars i.e. drunken driving) etc. Guess you didn't want to keep me as a viewer. from user Peaches114
We paid extra on our cable to get the Speed channel. We'll be cancelling that until Speed returns to normal. FS1 should be cancelled!!!! from user 20Jacks
i don't think its potheads i think its selfish greed and corruption of our fcc through the 4 main networks who buy and sell our country, politicians and for that matter us everyday...the speed channel to represents freedom....why because you have people out wasting time and money risking life and limb with no point to it other than to be the best at it.....yes i love every wasted minute of it....most people who criticize racing have never been to an actual race and if you go to a real racing league e.g. indy, nascar, ama, nhra etc you know what i am talking about....it is fing awesome and just because us freedom loving americans like to have fun they have infiltrated the very core and commercialized to the point of ruining the real common cord that speed channel represented because the speed channel showed the no money small racing that the corporate world rules as unimportant to generating big dollars....the networks buy out small tracks wreck them and build condos on them in other words.....really sucks to see this happen.....like i want to pay an extra fee to watch cbs sports that when i was a kid was free with the 12 channels we had then...i have 200 plus and what does fox sports 1 show....local high school football games that are couple of miles from my home...if i wanted to watch a high school football game i would just go what i can see it live for real for $5.....i want to watch formula 1 racing sorry not anymore you get to watch high school sports reruns.....worst thing is my little 1 1/2 your points at the set and wants me to put the speed channel on so he can watch racing instead of cartoons and i tell him its no more and he throws a tantrum......so maybe that's what i am doing here....i am an angry speed channel fan who is sick of every sports channel having high school football on.....i just looked at espn yep high school football....
there is no doubt in my mind that whoever at fox calls the shots does not like motor sports and has done this due to the money and power of the corporate conglomerate that fox is....fox is about pretty dumb women who don't like anything that is not gender biased male programming....I am sorry I am a man who likes pointless gas guzzling racing involving crashes and other testosterone based sports without any female presence other than a pretty sprint girl smiling at the end....yep I am a male chauvinistic pig and proud of it when it comes to my motorsports! FOX SPORTS REALLY SUCKS! from user coolzeezee808
I think the person behind the end of The Speed Channel should lose the job he or she has. If I want sports news I can watch local channels. Fox1 is not worth paying more for cable each month from user DB13
Please, Please, Please, bring back the speed channel or build another motorsports network, there are plenty of chnnels for kickboxing, soocer,football,basketball, and other games where men are playing with balls.... from user bjms21
Who needs a sports show with Regis Philbin???? I find that this new sports network doesn't give NASCAR anytime. They have cut Race Hub from an hour 4 days a week to an half hour a few nights a week!!!! Fox sport1 needs help a lot!!!! from user Memeof07
Tune into MAV TV, they have picked up a few shows from speed like My Classic Car, Gearz and Chop Cut Rebuild.It's morphing into speed channel IMO.
I would like to know who's going to air barret jackson, super cross, snowcross, and the rest of our gear head world.its pretty sad we can't have one channel out of like 40 of the sport channels.whst a bunch of dumb asses!!!!!!!!!
i seen CBS sports network picked up the Dirtcar motorsport coverage. their showing sprint cars, Super Dirt week , and The World finals in Charlotte. Thats what I was looking for. Bye bye fox!!!!!!!!
another channel for college football?? how many football channels do we need! we had 1 channel I want my speed back!
I am totally disappointed. I used to be a (57 years old) a USAC, then a Cart fan. I traveled to Brooklyn Michigan from New Jersey for 10 years straight, plus 3 Pocono races consisting of two Nascar and one Indy race, been to , Pine Brook NJ ,Trenton Speedway, Flemington there all gone. I've been to 85 Indy Danny Sullivan spin and win, been to Dover a few times saw Neil Bonnet win in 81,watched several great races at Englishtown NJ, I watched F1 but too far away but watched great and tragic events Ronnie Peterson , Arton Senna. So I guess I'm a fan. I miss Cart a lot could feel bad about Dan Weldon etc. BUT last point they lost me and a lot of fans, I'm confused because I need a good station to cover these events. Again disappointed.
What a bunch of dumb asses.who does the programming for these idiots. The only real motor head channel there is and they kill it.how many baseball, football, basketball channels are there
We don't need another channel for college football. Today I counted about 10 channels that played a college football game at the same time and I don't even have an expensive cable channel package. Racing has no dedicated channel anymore because Fox took over Speed. All we are asking is for is one channel to feed the hunger of racing fans and to be left alone.
This is most certainly NOT a channel dedicated to RACING no final practice today no prerace move the football game if they are running behind
You stupid fxxxxxxg morans what the hell were you thinking doing away with speed what an idiot, you really don't realize how many people like the speed channel now here i sit waiting on the truck race watching a stupid college football game while racing takes a second seat. Who ever came up with this shit should do us all a favor a jump off a cliff fox network sux
so another frustrating weekend with fox hate espn love speed please bring back our speed channel. The race began but football ran long so why did you not run a banner on the bottom letting viewers know where to watch? ----So now I am watching nascar with the banners flashing game scores really ! Enough already if I new how to drop your network I would.
This is just another example of large entities taking control of our lives. How dare you take away Speed Channel? I cannot believe that I cannot see the NASCAR practices, Race Hub, etc. it's bad enough that DW doesn't announce all of the races. He is the best. He has the racing experience and makes NASCAR alive for us. Now THE channel is gone? Replaced again by sorry football nonsense. I'm canceling my cable subscriptions as well. We need to boycott. Hit them in their pockets. I'm not watching anything on FOX. Alstons.
Well I just cancelled my Direct Tv, I will not longer support those greedy non-intellectual assholes any longer, for the last few years every network TV channel shows nothing but reality shows, we no longer see any good Sci-fi or intellectual TV shows, and the ones that are given a chance get cancelled because our American society is too fucking stupid to understand shows like Star Trek now days.
Not to long ago America was number 1 in the world in math, now Americans are 48th, this is because the anti-intellectual mindset that seemed to take over the country over the last 15 years or so.
Well today I am free, I will no longer give those jerks a dime, I will watch all my shows on the internet, Netflix, Hulu, ect.
Plenty of racing on the net,with good internet connection its all there .Poor programming and idots running the shows I have giving up on TV
The networks use to make some pretty good intellectual TV shows,
before they sold out for profit and invaded American network TV with all
reality shows making our kids and society a bunch of ass-hats that are
as dumb as third world counties in matters of intellect. So long SPEED it was a good ride.
THE only reason we got premium package thru satellite provder was to get Speed. My husband is not football, basketball, or baseball fan - he's turned wrenches for past 35 years to make a living. Speed was his "soap opera" channel to wind down after 10-12 hour workday. Bring it back, PLEASE!!
Please please please please bring back the speed channel I hate fox sports, it sucks and we already have (4) four ESPN channels!!!!!! From slchalmers
I wish Fox would stay out of motorsports all together. Im boogity boogity'd to death from the first time I heard it. And then the broadcasters having to mention of how great the documentary crap and new shows they are putting on in place of, lets see, ANY RACE ANYWHERE! Bring Speed back!!!!!!!! Or an alternative. Hell it was bad enough that the only real race coverage we got to see was Nascar or sports car crap. Tens of thousands of dirt races going on all across the country and the rarity of getting to see a lucas oil late model race would be all that was shown. Remember Diamond P Sports with Brock Yates. The sprint car racing they covered. Then there were Thurs. night thunder and Sat. night thunder for all the USAC stuff. How are these young people today gonna know who the rising stars are? They sure as hell arent gonna be anyone from the K&N Series they show but at least its a race. Look at all the dirt and open wheel short track guys in the top level or have been there and then try to ask any of the young people how many times they have seen Ricky Stenhouse, Jason Leffler (RIP) or Kyle Larson etc. race anything outside of NASCAR. They had no idea who they were. Fox go report on the convicts of the sports world where they jump and run and hang from things like from there tribal roots and leave racing to us.
Race fans unite. We need to put out a wanted sign for Fox sports with a very high reward to bring back the Speed channel.
Well as I suspected, regardless of all of the BS promises by Fox Sports to us race fans, that they would still have the same coverage of our beloved sport as Speed did, this last weekend proved otherwise. For those of us, who do not get FS2 in our cable or satellite package, and would be forced to hand over even more $$$$$ than we were paying for our package that used to include Speed, the one stop channel for motor sports, we first figured out how badly we were lied to last Saturday, when ALL of the NASCAR practices, and even some qualifying was on FS2.
To make things even worse, was on Sunday with the rain delay during the race, so of course ESPN had to go to it's scheduled baseball game, and left us fans to try and find out what was going on with the race, and the weather up there in Chicago, as to whether or not the race would resume. I don't blame ESPN for having to go to what they had scheduled for that time slot, BUT we race fans used to be able to go to Speed, and whatever they had on, it was clearly kept up on the bottom of the screen, what was going on with the weather conditions at the track, and when the race would resume or be rescheduled. I turned back and forth between ESPN and ESPN 2 and Fox Sports to try and find anything out, but unless you happened to catch one of them at the exact time they had anything about NASCAR running across the bottom of the screen, which happened about once an hour, after they ran through everything football, including college scores from colleges most of of have never heard of, you would not see it.
I ended up going to the NASCAR site comments section, and getting any information from other angry fans there, who would find out what was going on through TWITTER of all places, and to the Weather Channel, to see if the rain had finally stopped in Chicago. I finally gave up, and watched a movie, until something told me to turn on ESPN 2 at 10:00 EST, and the race was just resuming, or I would have found out the next day that I had missed it. We NASCAR fans need to quit wasting our time telling Fox how much we hate them, and let NASCAR keep hearing directly how angry we fans are, because Fox doesn't give a damn, but if NASCAR cares about it's fan base, they had better start listening.
I am so disappointed about SPEED being shut down. Nothing like crushing a whole audience o viewers for your own control and $$$$$$$$$$$$. The big greasy dollar, just one more reason to hate FOX thanks a lot losers.
Frankly, This Gen 6 car sucks so much ass, while Toyota buys wins allowed to use 4 cube bigger engines, Gen 6 car is more boring than all 3 series, trucks are neck and neck ,nation wide not too bad, bud cup is turning out to be the most boring dog and pony show there is , now that speeds gone, fans are losing interest, the France's made it too corporate and its about the end of NASCAR being as popular as it once was. You can all that corporatism , Nascar racing , be the leader- stay out front with no contesting. What a crock , I can tell you a DirecTV bill isnt worth this fail of a sport currently, drivers told to be wussies. Its pathetic. They get Government aid as well (NASCAR does) and you can tell they spent it wisely. You know its a sad day in NASCAR when a Dodge leaves with a championship and Toyota just keeps paying off anyone and everyone to allow them to dominate. F U NASCAR and FOX
I agree Speed was a great channel. And im missing it already, but......all the car building/reparing type shows, along with reality style ones are still around. Not only are they still around, im sure alot of the shows from speed will get picked up. Where? Velocity!!!!!!!! It was already the better channel of the two. I love NASCAR, but Speed was so watered down with NASCAR related shows it was annoying. Give Velocity a legit chance and youll love it! And be patient, i bet they will pick up some of the old Speed shows as theyve already brought back a few great ones from their sister stations.! CHEER UP!!!
Thats it......all done with with Direct TV,boxed up the receivers and remotes sent them back with a very nice note on how I feel about them and there friend FOX.
I can watch racing on the internet and save a ton of money....
I am new here, but when I found this place, I just had to sign up to add my voice about how irate I am that Speed Channel is gone, and it is just another sports channel now, with a bunch of content that I do not give a damn about. Like there are not enough channels where you can already see football 24/7. To me this is going to only serve to hurt NASCAR, as I already paid more for a higher tier with Dish, in order to get Speed, and for some strange reason both the next tier up and the tier below mine has Fuel, or now FS2, but not the tier I am on, and if I go to the next lower tier, where I can get FS2, which by the way today has all of the Cup practice and Nationwide qualifying, then I lose FS1, so basically to get all of NASCAR that I used to get between Speed and ESPN, I would now have to pay more a month to get both FS1 and FS2. it is just another way to steal more money from us consumers and it royally pisses me off.
the reason America is a great country is because of change. What makes it the best country on the planet is admitting our mistakes. FX1 is an obvious mistake. Im sure this channel was created to further better the lives of Fox share holders. SPEED was what built America, cars. trucks. racing. DIY! shows. buying selling/auctions. Ive been patiently awaiting some good from FX1, its just not there. a huge mistake! please, bring back SPEED, u can even keep your crappy FX1 channel, just put channel 607 back on my receiver so Americans can feel like Americans again. am i the only one that feels like moving to Canada? ha, i hear SPEED still aires there. Fix this mistake FX1, i refuse to watch your programming, at least ESPN is original. l.o.l.
Everyone who attends NASCAR races , bring signs and shirts that say fox sports one sucks , ill be making group buy t shirts , the back will say WE WANT SPEED, eventually well get them on the air lol
@Speed freak Ill have to check that out and put it on my shop TV for a week. It just sucks that now you have Raceday come on early in the morning then a hour of no coverage pre race then a replay of Raceday then another hour delay before Countdown, but on ANOTHER CHANNEL then you have to switch ANOTHER channel usually to go to NASCAR Countdown, I mean seriously , what kind of 2nd grade moron is running the NASCAR television network needs some brain examination . Allowing these networks to destroy the sport because viewers are sick of having to track down the 9 channels to see the 1 show they want to watch what a joke from both NASCAR and these networks. Why cant we just have a MotorSports1 or something wtf
@MargaretStanberry dude that not Fox fault, the college football game went over on ESPN and the start of the nationwide series didn't start on ESPN, I don't know why ESPN didn't have a banner but Fox does not have to tell u where to find ESPN race
@Argonnergypsy the NASCAR practice how been showing all weekend on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2, Speed channel went away their programing didn't
@mojave1 I hear you and agree completely, and am ready to do the same with my Dish TV account. I paid for the premium package to get Speed, since racing is the only sport I have ever cared about, and of course got a lot of nonsense channels that as you say, are geared to the willfully uninformed, who have to be entertained with senseless reality TV, instead of anything that makes them have to think critically. It is all in the plan for the dumbing down of America, so the elite and the corporations can take over our country. We are becoming 1930's Germany.
If more people like us stood up and made a stand then they would have to change, but the same people who sit and watch mind numbing reality TV, and endless sports talk, with a bunch of over paid talking heads giving their opinions, are the ones who complain about their plight in life, but never want to do anything about it, meaning the corporations win, and Fox is one of the worst, when it comes to making stuff up, instead of telling people the truth, but then our media is all corporate owned. Corporations only understand through $$$$$, and denying them that $$$$$ is what speaks to them. It is a shame, when you have to go to news outlets from other countries, to get the truth about what is REALLY going on here, but as Fox knows, keep the people entertained with shiny objects, like more useless talking heads sports talk on FS1 and FS2, while they keep their greedy hands in our wallets. I refuse to give anything that is Fox my viewer ratings, even their local channels.
@SamWilkinson I agree totally, but we also need to let NASCAR know how angry we are, as I have, because they are the ones who signed a contract with these people, and knew that they were going to be doing this. On their web site, fans have been outraged over this and have been letting them know this.
@Samidean First of all Fox Sports 1 only have nascar rights during the Fox portion of the season, any coverage not be shown during this time of the season is ESPN fault, as for the rain delay, that was ESPN problem not FS1, Fox is still showing some of their motorsports coverage and other sports.
@RyanE1 I totally agree with all that you said. The trucks are by far the best to watch, as it is racing side by side, not follow the leader, and whoever gets out front stays out front, so the only way to change a position is in the pits. It has gotten so bad, that I now am more interested in the pit stops, and how they come out from them, then I am on the on track action, or lack thereof. I also agree with you about Toyota. It was a dark day for me when I first heard that NASCAR was allowing a foreign manufacturer into the series, and now see how they get those perks.
I do have a problem with NASCAR allowing team owners, like Kyle Bush, to just because he owns a couple of truck teams and Nationwide teams, and evidently is too cheap to hire full time drivers for them, drives in so many of the truck and Nationwide races in his Toyotas. NASCAR needs a new rule, telling team owners like Kyle, that if he wants to own teams, then put drivers in those cars and trucks, and stop hogging the show for the young guys trying to make a name for themselves, because I for one am sick and tired of the all Kyle show all of the time in both of those divisions. I don't mind if one of the Cup guys who owns one of those teams drives in them from time to time, like the rest of the cup drivers who own teams does, but I have had more than enough of Kyle hogging the show, and end up turning off those races where he always gets the poll, leads every lap, and wins the race. I am so sick of seeing his face and hearing his name, like it is so surprising that a Cup driver can out drive those young guys just getting started.
@DeryckAllenMosley I don't know if I even get that channel, but it still will not take care of the problem of missing half of everything NASCAR on the weekends, if you don't get Fuel.
ESPN,FOX 1 & 2 SUCK AND SO DO YOU SPORTS FAN!!!!!........Gee I think I am over it.
@mojave1 really why are people cutting their cable cord over this stuff, I failed to see the reason behind spending a $100 plus dollars per month for cable and internet for one channel or something in the general sense, i love my cable and internet and not getting rid of it over one thing like this, just get over it and move on
Looks like thurs thru sun it's mostly car oriented. Still can't believe they just shut down the SPEED network geeeezzzzz
So wait, do you lean Democrat or Republican? On the one hand, you rail on about Fox and the corporations taking over the country, but on the other, you watch racing and blame "willfully uninformed" people for "complaining about their plight in life but never doing anything about it". (Which is, naturally, why you'd rather watch a bunch of cars going in circles rather than a real thinking man's sport like baseball... alright, now I'm just messing with you. Although if they're WILLFULLY uninformed, doesn't that imply they know all too well how overwhelming and depressing real news is and are actively trying to avoid it?)
@chrisbuda @Samidean YOU have no clue what you are talking about, as ESPN has NEVER shown practice or qualifying, because Fox ALWAYS had the contract to do that for the ENTIRE season. Stop telling us NASCAR fans that we are all confused and have not for years been watching qualifying and practice on Speed. I do know how to use a remote, so I think I do know what channel I have been using to watch it for YEARS now, and that all of a sudden that all changed when Fox Sports took over Speed, and I do think I am capable of comprehending them lying to us fans and telling us that nothing would change with them showing practice and qualifying. No matter how many times YOU ignorantly try telling me that I am confused as to what as a NASCAR fan I have been watching for years, and on WHAT CHANNEL, as a long time fan, I do think I know what I am talking about. YES, ESPN has the contract to show the RACES the second part of the season, but NOT practice and qualifying, so stop telling me what you evidently have no clue about. Are you stalking me? I don't see your WRONG replies about ESPN to anyone else here.
@chrisbuda @mojave1 You obviously fail to see a lot about us NASCAR fans and are only commenting here because you have nothing better to do. Maybe you are made of money, and I do not pay anything close to $100 a month for my satellite, but I refuse to be forced to pay more than I am because of this. You must enjoy being screwed by corporations. How very sad that is, but no wonder they keep getting away with it, with people like you.
@morganwick Not when they read nothing and never care to do any research on this box we are typing on to find out any facts, but will sit all day in front of Fox, and report everything they hear there as fact. As I said, what used to pass for our media, in the once proud heritage of a Walter Cronkite, is now nothing more than the same sensationalized reality TV they want us all to numb our minds watching. My political affiliation is no ones business but my own, but contrary to what so many want to believe watching NASCAR is not just a past time for red necks. If that were so, then they would not have built tracks all over the country.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure I've seen ESPN and ESPN2 show practice and qualifying in the past; I don't know if you didn't know it was going on or thought Speed was depriving you of it or if you're just overstating things for dramatic effect (I'd make a joke about rednecks being too dumb to actually find out when and where practice and qualifying is on and just going "DURR TURN ON SPEED~!" but I know I'll get flamed for that), and I don't know if the primary contract was with ESPN or Speed or both, but regardless when the new contract kicks in, whether next year or the year after, rights to practice and qualifying will be held by whoever is broadcasting the race, whether Fox (FS1/2) or NBC (NBCSN).
WRONG! The Speed channel has for years and Fox STILL has the contract for qualifying and practice, NOT ESPN. You must not be a NASCAR fan or you would know that for years we fans have ALWAYS turned on Speed for qualifying and practice, AND if you could comprehend what you read, they are STILL under contract to be shown by Fox, but now since Fox Sports 1 and 2 have taken over Speed, unless you have Fuel, now FS2, which many cable companies do not even offer, then you are just out of watching any of it, while Fox LIED to us fans and said they would still be carrying it all, but neglected to tell us that most of us would have to shell out more $$$ to get it, or that many cable companies do not even offer that channel. Many of us have let NASCAR know that we are not happy with them either, since it is them that has the contract with Fox and is allowing them to do this. Let them screw you with your football coverage, as they have us NASCAR fans with ours, and see how you cry about it. @chrisbuda @Samidean @DeryckAllenMosley
