Agree pplasm I loved the old Speed with Two Wheeled Tuesday, boat races, sport car races, snowmobile races, jet ski races, generally all those races where the rider/driver was allowed to turn right.

You just may be on to something, there, Ace!

In fact, how about air racing, aerobatics, Red Bull Air Race (look it up!), boat racing, hell everything but NASCAR!

Wait, that was the OLD Speed, wasn't it?
You boys think the Old Speed was making money hand over fist and just cancelled all that programming because they love NASCAR?

Toss in World Rally Cars and I'm in. That's the best racing on TV right now,

Since you mentioned Algore you have to listen to crying Hippy tree huggers again

They did Buz. Speed cancelled all that money programming for CRAPCAR which makes them no money at all! I think these 5 motorcycle racing nuts on this site may have a slightly skewed view of the potential of making money on motorcycle programming. Speed isn't personally involved. I loved the Two Wheel Tuesday programming they had, and those are gone now. At least I am smart enough to figure out why.

We all know why, we are just doing some liberal anti American, pro European (everything is better there) whining.

Money or not, I just miss watching motor sports. Nascar and reality tv... Guess I'll just have to go for a ride on Sundays instead.

If NASCAR paid you a couple hundred grand a year, you would hate motorcycles too. Dave went where the money is, and that ain't motorcycles. I can't say I blame him.
