AMA racing to air same day

For better or for worse...

http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/...?article=36766


AMA will be airing some of it's races same day with a tape delay. This will surely be better than the week or two after the fact...

I personally think is for the worst cause by the time they air it People will have heard what already happened at the races!

True. But how would that be any different than almost all of the MotoGP and WSBK races that are on Speed? Those races are for the most part long over and done with before we get to watch them. If I want to, I can find out all the race results hours before they are aired. Same day delay is how they've done it in the past...

Dave Despain just said on his Wind Tunnel show that people better watch it, that there better be some good ratings or don't expect it to continue.

Also said there is the possibility the plug may be pulled any day on the IRL. WOW!

FUCK YOU NASCAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

its going to be better watching the race in the same day, but there are so many other problems with the series. Its was embarrassing watching the WSB race being commented on by those two idiots.

I wouldn't go so far as to call Scott Ru$$el an idiot, but I would agree he needs to be doing something else for a living.

Just because you were a great roadracer doesn't make you a good commentator. Not saying I could do any better, But-

BURNOUT.....

Something to do with in-fighting with the management at Indy racetrack which runs IRL, they said. They were also suggesting just doing a 1 race series with the Indy 500 of course.

My guess is there are few fans in the stands and skyrocket expenses and sponsor ships going in the tank. They didn't say for certain.

If not for Danica, I wouldn't be watching the IRL at all. Not because shes cute, but because she is an underdog. I respect her effort against the men. Shes easy to like from a fan persepctive.

Unless you have a Penske or Target car, your chances of winning are not to great. The show they put on is not that good either. Danica and Dan Wheldon together couldn't even draft up to Helios car at Indy. He pulled away by himself.

I wouldn't be surprised any day that the IRL is done.

Since Sam Hornish has proven great success at IRL does not transfer to Nascrap, I wouldn't expect any of the IRL drivers except Danica to get picked up. Her of course because she is so popular and easy to find sponsorship for. Why would anyone want to watch Helio in Nascrap, or the rest of them?

Same day is a huge improvement over 3 week delay. Nobody cares after such a long period.

BTW Scott Russell I can deal with, Ralph is horrible. He's a boob!
