Re: [TV] Fox Sports 1 & 2 will be on TWC on the 17th after all

Yes it is tasteless, but so was he. I never had any respect for him and never will. One word describes the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500. Karma.

He is a heck of a driver Hob. So much depends on being in the right situation and having the right crew and crew chief behind you in this sport. I have the utmost admiration for all of these guys. People think that they just drive around in circles all afternoon long. We know differently. I have a close friend who is retired who does not miss a Martinsville race. He has been going there forever. We used to hang at Dover every June. I was there when it was still asphalt and Derrike Cope won in the Purolator car. Fun times.

True colors are being shown once again. I am appalled to read what has been written here. But I am not surprised. My block is being reapplied also.

Sorry that I have no respect for a driver who made a career wrecking other drivers intentionally and putting other peoples lives at risk week after week. He got what was coming to him. Am I glad he's dead, no, was I ever sad about it, nope. You can only play with fire so many times before you get burned.

I have been to Dover twice, Martinsville twice and I will go to Bristol before I turn up my toes. You are right its a total team sport and I am very big on teamwork, unlike some.

My group leader at work is going this week for the first time. He has been to Richmond (one track that I would love to go to) also. I almost like watching races at Richmond now a days more than Bristol. Somehow concrete has changed the track and the racing there...the same thing at Dover. But, I will still be glued to the screen this week. Truck race is Weds. night on FS1 ! Glad that we have it.

A Marketing guy I used to work with is part of the Kasey Kahne TWC hookup. I do enjoy seeing that car!

hey hob, tell TWC that they should expand their sponsorship to sponsor Jr as well. Since he's in search of a sponsor for some of his races. I think I saw him in one of TWC commercials before too.

Even though it probably will never happen, it would be awesome to see a TWC sponsored #88 car on the track.

Here in Syracuse Time Warner started carrying Fox Sports 1 in HD, it was still in HD on Sunday and Monday, now suddenly it's in standard definition and the tech support folks at Time Warner can't seem to explain why. I've even contacted friends in the area who are having the same issue. Racing is almost unwatchable in standard definition (I tried watching the Grand Am Rolex race on FS2 and it was such poor quality that I turned it off), hopefully this is just a temporary situation.

FOXSPORTS1HD is showing up in the guide in my area on channel 1313 and in SD on 313 and 97.

Fox Sports2SD is on 317.

What happened to the speed channel that was on 1313?

Speed became Fox Sports 1.

Wow, here in Canada it's staying as SPEED with some FS1 programming in the mix, fed from the U.S. with no commercials.

Early ratings are bad so maybe Canada has the right idea keeping SPEED alive.

Not unexpected. People are just finding out about this new network. Once they start showing more mainstream sporting events, the network will start to take off.

Fox Sports 1 is on channel 56 in the DFW / N. Texas area, but, TWC has chose to scramble the channel, so I cannot receive the channel with my TWC subscription to Basic and Std, using my TV's CQAM tuner. Instead I must use the DTA box I now pay $1 month for. But TWC already got their pay increase with thecable modem charge of $5 that has now been brought back. Cable is a funny busniness....
