I’m a little bit in shock with the NASCAR coverage lately. ESPN is covering the next few races, and here are the key differences…
Same commercials, same advertisers, but unlike TNT, you actually get to see some racing… instead of enough commercials to make the race not worth watching.
Commentary? I enjoy Rusty Wallace’s commentary, but the other two can go. Frankly, I don’t want to hear commentary of a Nascar race unless you’re a current or former driver, or have a southern accent.
I’d be perfectly happy if TNT never aired another NASCAR race again. ESPN does a pretty good job minus the commentary, on par with NBC… but I wouldn’t complain if they just stayed on ESPN.
