Default Attention: Sick Of Nascar Taking Over Speedtv? Sign Electronic Petition Please

All of us Formula One,World Rally, Grand Prix, Circuit Racing, SCCA Racing, Cycle Racing, Dakar Rally Fans have been seeing less and less of this on SPEED TV and have been noticing the rise of NASCAR. If this is you, it would be really helpful if you could sign this electronic petition below and make 65,000 signatures so SPEEDTV will bring more of the REAL racing back.

Thanks and please forward this to anyone that you know.

Sooner or later, we will hardly see anything, but NASCAR on SPEEDTV.

Thanks!

I signed it. Let's hope this petition can make a difference. Unfortunately, money is a powerful motivator and there's big money in Nascar right now.

Don't just put Nascar on TV because US car can't beat japanese or european car in any other racing

I signed as well. Unfortunately I don't believe it will have any impact but it feels good to be able to vent anyways.

I'm wondering - does anyone know if there are any better racing stations in the US that we can try to get cable providers in Canada to broadcast?

Haha, good luck.
I give the Speed Channel reps crap everytime I see them at trade shows, and they continue to tell me "that's where head office wants us to go, because that's what makes money".

We can't deny that Nascar is huge, and as a corporation Speed has to make money. The one good thing about Speed is that although they are run by geezer idiots who don't even drive, everyone under the top level management is into cars or speed in some way. Even the reps I speak with are into rallying and Dakar. That's why we get so much rally coverage compared to any other sports network.

So that's Nascar explained.
Who can explain that stupid Barrett Jackson crap that seems to be taking over now?
