I know that FIAT is a sort of savior but I still can't help how i feel resentment towards them.
We would like to see you join our discussions more often. Though we appreciate & thank you for viewing our posts & your support, we can't always tell when members are here if they are just lurking at the news either.John Rogers said:I'd vote No as well. I come here for news on street production vehicles and concepts. I know where Motorsports is when interested.
How come?xjgary said:I have absolutely no interest in motor sports.
I don't resent fiat but I do want them out of my engine compartment.con383 said:I know that FIAT is a sort of savior but I still can't help how i feel resentment towards them.
We got the NHRA event just for you this week as it is MOPAR sponsored!jerseyjoe said:Haven't paid attention to NASCAR since they stopped running cars found in the local showrooms and the drivers take 95% of the attention away from the brand. I pay more attention to drag racing because I can participate in the events. For me this directly relates to the brand and body style I drive. Except for my 1 four door and one convertible I have had nothing but 2 door cars. If it weren't for my wife there wouldn't have been a Jeep or 4 door in my driveway. But that's just me. I'll go with the majority vote.
Let me ask this question & provide a solution 2 Brew Crew,2_Brew_Crew said:I think the departure of Nascar took a big chunk out of my attention span for racing. As much as I had grown to dislike the way they ran things, I still kept up with who was winning and running where. Now with no Chrysler's I haven't seen a race this year aside from the last half of the Daytona 500 and the last few laps at Daytona a couple weeks ago. I know it was late in the season when I got into it, but I was really starting to dig the TORC series, but have heard very little about it this year. I think the face that it was speculated (confirmed?) a lot of the trucks were running Ram bodies and Ford motors killed a lot of interest in that as well.
Personally I would be more apt to follow a series that featured Ram (power and bodies) moreso than any other brand. I never seem to follow open wheel that long even though I say I will every season, and stock cars though I still enjoy the lower levels of the sport aren't featured enough on tv to bother with. Which I believe is the big reason for the decline in participation. The F1 races are on consistantly, but way to early for most people to bother watching. NHRA coverage is great, but ESPN runs so many commercials, and the rest of the series seem to have no consistant tv schedule.
The TV coverage & Online webcast coverage is the EXACTLY same, just that there is very few to no commercials on the webcast & you get to see features that get edited out during the TV broadcast & re-airings. That's why it pays to watch the races on line.2_Brew_Crew said:I didn't realize ESPN3 had all of that though, so I'll give that a shot and see how I like their online coverage, hopefully it's better than their tv coverage.
