    Read this morning that FS1 will carry the first 3 hours live then the remaining 9 hours will be streamed on imsa.com What a great deal. Yes,
    I’m being sarcastic.

    You do realize that this is an IMSA deal. For the life of me i cannot understand how so many are blaming NASCAR when they turned almost complete control of the series to IMSA. Just about every decision made has come from the IMSA offices.

    Does TV deal suck yes it does. But is still better than what ALMS had before buyout. Only hope that there will be a feed other than the IMSA.com feed. Theirs sucked at Daytona.

    It’s not NASCAR….I really wish people would get their facts straight. NASCAR is NASCAR, IMSA is IMSA.

    Yeah, but doesn’t Fox own NASCAR? ;)

    NASCAR owns all motorsports, including Indycar. :P

    On a serious note, if we want FOX to look at the sportscar racing demographic more seriously then the customers better watch, because ratings and more eyeballs matter. If people are complaining and NOT watching then they’re just shooting themselves in the foot.

    This is not SPEED, and hell no its not Speedvision, this is Fox Sports. Its a different show now, we have to make an effort to make OTHER people watch and like our stuff for us to get the leverage to compel FOX Sports to give us what is due for such a major race.

    Of course I can just sit on my arse and just complain, but complaining for the sake of complaining just makes me look like an idiot.

    Typical NASCAR. Catering to my needs again. I don’t have cable, so they decided to stream the race for me (I think I’ll be home before the end of the race). Then catering to me again, my friends and family can watch the Conti race live as it will be streamed.

    It’s ironic that IMSA didn’t cater to L5’s needs but they did mine. Probably because I’ve been a NASCAR customer for a long time and they listen to me.
    VIVE LA NASCAR!

    It’s all a plot to hide from the world the potential for a DP to win the 12 Hour.

    When the black magic Chad speaks of happens, it’ll be more reason to switch to the IZOD LMP1/GTOutlaw series

    I can’t wait until St. Pete for the IZOD LMP1/GTOutlaw series. I knew someone was going to step up to the plate and pretty much kill off IMSA. With the IZOD LMP1/GTOutlaw series and the Pirelli Pure GT3 series running that weekend, makes you wonder if IMSA will even be in business by the time Laguna comes around in May.

    In the end, looks like Indycar has the best show in town. Thank goodness for Tony George. If it wasn’t for him and his vision, no LMP-1, Outlaw or Pure GT3 cars being driven in anger at top venues here in the US. With the number of people that are not going to Sebring out of protest with NASCAR, Indycar is set to take over in a short period of time.

    Wouldn’t that be the Goodwill Industries LMP1/GTOutlaw series? Or do you think they can get IZOD to change their mind and come back?

    IZOD just went with the next big thing which is LMP-1 and GT Outlaw. Unless you are living under a rock, these classes will pretty much give the NFL a run for the money. With the TCHP class gaining traction, that will become the new Indy Lites and a feeder series for LMP-1 and GT Outlaw. The TCHP class already has a series sponsor, it’s Members Only with OP as a supporting sponsor, New Coke as the official beverage and Spencers as the official store.

    The sanctioning body is rumored to be NationalOnlyTechnology-NorthAmericanSportsCarAwesomeRacing (NOT-NASCAR) which is a subsidiary of IZOD-IndyCar.

    I’m wondering why, Need For Speed is not sponsoring a GT Outlaw car with Tom Cruise and Anthony Edwards driving. It would be the perfect fit.

    [/quote] FYI, you need to mention the drivers before you post that history. I will finish it for you this time but you’ll be banned if you leave out the drivers next time.

    I always thought Mike was better than Ralf and I guess it finally had to come down to a duel. From looking at the pic, it looks like Ralf decided at the last minute to run the Porsche Silverado 3/4 ton over the S10.

    In other media news. Greg Creamer and Ryan Eversley will be joining the MRN radio team. I’m pretty happy with this. They will be able to bring the sportscar incite and knowledge that Daytona lacked.
