YUCK and PUKE !

[QUOTE=Pinballer;
I will say this to be fair: Kudos to FS1 for showing the Stock final.
You know, it wouldn't hurt to show ALL the Sportsman final rounds. Take out 3 minutes of interviews and we could all see who won in the rest of the categories and even have time to explain what the category is all about.[/QUOTE]

We viewed taped version yesterday, it was nice to see the Stock final though I'd guess if it wasn't for the big wheelstands it wouldn't have made the program. We must have fast forwarded right past Jenner. My guests are so tired of hearing drivers name their sponsors each time they get the microphone that many times they fast forward us right past the next pair. Nice to see Fletcher continue his winning ways in Comp. If they want to do an in depth interview there is one, almost all his wins have been by driver skill and dial expertise, and even the losses when a competitor is near perfect, rather than being able to out run the competition.

How about Kevin McClellan winning S/G? He won it 20 years ago in the same car.
That would have made a good interview, too.

That would be epic. To hear the Golden Voice of Drag Racing interview again would be worth the price of admission.

That interview would be outstanding.
Why are so many golden opportunities missed?

I thought FS1 did an excellent job on their Bob Glidden memorial tribute!

Because they aren't interested in anything not involved with nitro and big money.

Floyd Staggs,
Where is the "Like Button"
Seems they are at a loss of what really makes the sport great to so many Grassroots racers & spectators. They don't understand "Talking Head" drivers or team owners giving a sponsor motivated interview just doesn't do it.
