It will be live on FS1 and have a limited number of live events on Fox. I'm excited to hear this. ESPN never showed it live on TV except for the US Nationals. It will be nice to get to watch it live on TV for once and not have to sit in front of the computer.

Now we just need someone to cover the Knoxville Nationals live like TNT and Speed Channel used to do. ESPN needs to bring back ESPN Speed World and cover a few random motor sports events live like they did with USAC Midgets a few times.

^Yeah, she isn't bad looking. The real hottie imho though is the feature/multimedia reporter Amanda, who is an NC State grad. I wish she got a few more minutes of TV time during every broadcast.

The new TV package has resulted in a ratings increase. I'm not shocked though. Fox is showing 16 events live on TV. ESPN only showed one (US Nationals). The rest were tape delayed events that aired at about 9 pm on ESPN2 on Sunday nights.

Winter Nationals 4 pm Today Live on FS1

Fox is really taking over motor sports. They also have the rights to the Weather Tech Sports Car Championship and are going to show those events live on the Fox family of networks.

I always wanted to get into this shit, but its impossible unless you are either a complete redneck, OR an engineer that can appreciate everything that goes into building a good vehicle/pit stops.

As a "sport" in and of itself, its the dumbest shit ever. Around and around they gooooooooooooooooooooooo, over and over and over again...

The funny cars might break into the 3.70s, unreal. The amount of horsepower figured out by these crew chiefs in the last year and a half is amazing.

A pretty cool thing happened today in the NHRA...

http://www.nhra.com/news/2017/millican-finally-get-his-first-nhra-victory-capps-laughlin-also-score-bristol

Clay Millican won his first NHRA race ever on Fathers Day in his home state of Tennessee. His son Dalton who was a Monster Jam driver died in a motorcycle wreck almost 2 years ago. The timing couldn't have been any better.

John Force just had his car blowup in qualifying. The body went flying into the air. Qualifying is live on FS1 right now.

Rough weekend for the Force family, too much competition in funny car for top 10 this year and not even full fields in top fuel. Same ol KB dominance in pro stock.

^Yeah that was a nasty hit, but it looks like she is going to be ok.

On a side note, I saw this interesting story posted on twitter the other day about how NCSU alumna Amanda Busick ended up being a part of the Fox NHRA broadcasting crew.
