Hello Race Fans,
I'd like to ask all of the visitors of this Message Board to contact SPEED TV and encourage them to include more video clips of the USAC/CRA Sprint Cars to their Speed Report Program.
As most of you know, Speed Report dedicates a segment of their program to non-NASCAR racing. Over the past year or so, the time allowed for Sprint Cars (both Winged and Non-Wing) has decreased.
Raceway Video's Jeff Kristensen, who records the USAC/CRA events, has clips ready to air after every race. In addition to the TV Clips, he shares weekly clips (for free) on his website- www.racewayvideo.com. However, the producers of Speed Report generally choose not to air Sprint Cars unless they need to fill time.
Any clips aired on programs such as Speed Report, or the Sunshine Network's RaceScene (which is now cancelled) are a great way to promote USAC/CRA- it's drivers, teams, tracks, sponsors, and events.
Since the TV coverage is not as hoped, USAC has chosen not to renew Raceway Video's deal with USAC/CRA. Now, events like Garrett Hansen's first win at Perris, your favorite driver's victory, and great charges to the front are in danger of not being recorded or available for purchase.
So, I'm asking for help to promote the sport we love by contacting SPEED TV and in the process helping a friend who has done a lot for Sprint Car Racing.
Let your voice be heard. Those in charge of programming need to listen to their subscribers and fan base.
