What do you expect, NASCAR owns speed TV.
On a side note, why is everyone pissed at Speed? Why not at NBC / CBS / ABC or even better ESPN / ESPN2 / ESPN Classic / ESPN News, They never show road racing. ESPN shows some Dirt Bike races when it is not too busy talking about the next great millionaire athlete that can not read, is shooting drugs, or beating his girlfriend. And needs more money so he can buy another diamond studded necklace worth more than any of our houses.
So until we can get EURO TV feeds we are stuck with what the mainstream TV viewer wants. We just have to accept that we are not the average mainstream TV watcher, unless you like ?reality TV? , predictable sitcoms, or the ?news?.
