Best NASCAR Race broadcast?

Whose the best at broadcasting NASCAR races? FOX, TNT or ESPN? I haven't really got a preference myself, I see good and bad in all of them this year.

Fox
Good
Commercial breaks for the last part of the race are only have the screen. I think they called this "side-by-side"

Bad
Twitter obsession

TNT
Their broadcasts didn't stick out either good or bad. Can't remember if they did side-by-side or not.


ESPN
During the Bristol race I lost the signal multiple times, all other channels appearing fine. Someone tripped over a cable?

Re: Best NASCAR Race broadcast?

I like ESPN just fine. Of the 3 networks I thought TNT was the worst.

I like the commentary of Kyle Petty
Rusty Wallace can kiss my grits.

I was unable to watch Bristol live. I kept up with the race via twitter and the leader board at NASCAR.com. If you follow Samantha Busch and Delana Harvick you will be kept up to speed just fine
Forgot to add SHR on twitter....hilarious.

Re: Best NASCAR Race broadcast?

I like Fox or ESPN. Hate TNT (announcers) and ABC as ABC has commercials every 5 minutes or so it seems way more then the others.
I like DW where did he go? Dont care for Rusty Wallace much-- LOVE Nicole--what a sweety. 8-)

ESPN & ABC are 1 and the same..only difference is the channel number
DW is on FOX and he'll be back for the Daytona 500

"ESPN & ABC are 1 and the same..only difference is the channel number"

I do know that they are owned by the same basic network but as I record the races, ABC does infact show more commercials then ESPN as they have operational differences like different announcers at times as well--as my friends have noticed that also and hate when the races are on ABC for that reason. I forgot DW was on Fox though--thanks for reminding me. My friends who watch Indycar prefer the races on NBC Sports rather then ABC as well, for what it matters? All networks have way too many commercials so its simply a personal choice or no choice really if you want to watch the races.. 8-)

That would the silliest thing ever and I don't believe it.

Wally is my favorite guy
to me if I got to pick my all star crew it would be
Alan Bestwick (the TV announcer guy)
Wally (the driver announcer guy)
Andy Petree (the CC anouncer guy)

so I like TNT as well

Schmoopy that is "the Dream Team", I would only add Dale Jarrett. My favorites too! Now if only we could get one channel to hire them......
Most of the time I just mute the TV and turn on the MRN radio. They seem to cut most of the fill, and really describe what is happening on the track, from the back of the field to those racing at the front.

Re: Best NASCAR Race broadcast?

Jackie Stewart would be fun to listen to for a NASCAR race.....Bring in Charles Barkley for comic relief and then we'd have to have ohhhhhhhhh, I think Jonathan Coachman might be a good fit. Maybe even Stuart Scott..... :lol: 8-)
