Hello Race Fans,

I'd like to ask all of the visitors to this Message Board to contact SPEED TV and encourage them to include more video clips of 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. Other Sprint Car and Midgets videographers are more than happy to supply clips to SPEED TV.

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 Sprint Car Racing- 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.

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 the sport. This also affects every Sprint Car, Midget, and Open Wheel team across the world.

Let your voice be heard. Those in charge of programming will listen to their subscribers and fan base.

SPEED TV's Feedback Page is at http://www.speedtv.com/feedback/. Just fill out the online form and click submit.

If anyone knows of an email address to contact, please let us know.

Will do! I couldn't help but responding to the comment on the decreasing coverage of sprint car racing on the SpeedTV racing programs; this could be in part due to the fact that sprint car racing has been on winter break, and the big bucks are with NASCAR and Daytona.

It sure can't hurt to remind them that sprint car reason season is here, too.

I am pretty sure that filling out the feedback form will send an email to the concerned person(s) or department at SpeedTV or Fox.com , as it requires an email addy. Sites do that to avoid email scams/junkmail/virus being sent directly from senders, for whatever reason.

I reminded them that the sprint car community is worldwide and that we have noticed a decrease in reporting on sprint car events and personalities. Hope it catches somebody's attention.

When they start showing the Outlaws for 8 weeks this summer then they might put on some clips to promote their own show. Until then I wouldn't count on it.
