General Message Board
I just heard from a buddy that NASCAR and ESPN decided that the "Chase", or aka "NASCAR's playoff season" is not being televised on ABC today...
In today's economy, you would think that the "powers that be" would realize some people have to decide between feeding their children and having cable programming. That really sucks bro!
(He is getting to watch the Chiefs v. Browns... JESUS! I'd be pissed!)
NASCAR continues to remain second place to the NFL for a reason I suppose... Have no idea why though, anyone?
NASCAR is not considered a "SPORT" by the media..........
Football (i think) is the Largest money maker in "Sports"
So what would be the Largest Auto "media money maker" ??................. I never looked so I can't say.

Sport or not Curse...
I don't think if I were NASCAR I'd give up that huge market share to my #1 competitor.
NASCAR, (Brian France) needs to keep in mind what happened on the day of the 1979 Daytona 500...
A litlle refresher: The entire East coast was under blizzard conditions from North Carolina to Maine. People were stuck inside for the afternoon and television dominated the day. The Daytona 500 was aired on CBS in it's entirity for the first time ever on a national stage. Going down the backstretch on the final lap, the leaders, Donnie Allison and Cale Yarborough began to battle for the same piece of realestate at 200 mph. They rubbed, then began bouncing off each other, then slammed into the wall entering turn three. Richard Petty and Darrell Waltrip with A.J. Foyt in tow flew past them as the crumbled #11 and #1 came to rest in the infield of turn three. With smoke and steam bellowing from the mangled mess, Cale approached Donnie to assist him in pulling his head out of his ass. Not seeing that Donnie's brother Bobby had stopped to check on his brother, Cale and Bobby went at it like it was a Saturday night local track show, helmets and fists flying! It was caught on camera for all of America to see. The rest is NASACAR history...

I know that's right!
They need to realize there is a huge fan base watching network television right now. Can you imagine the number of people here in Kansas City that are watching the Chiefs because NASCAR is on ESPN and the Brownies are playing the Spleafs on CBS? Put the Chase race at Loudon on ABC, ESPN's sister company and watch the ratings grow!
