JUST CURIOUS!!

A friend of mine says she heard on Sirius Nascar radio yest that Speed channel will not be back next yr.....I honestly dont know if she heard it wrong and only caught part of a conversation....i have ck'd a few diff places and ive found nothing.....Does anyone know anything bout this? Or could it be they were just making an analogy that "IF" things arent better its something considered....Id really like to know....Personally I think dropping the speed channel is a big mistake on Nascar's part....they stand to lose a lot more than they will gain if this in fact is true.....

Re: JUST CURIOUS!!

I don’t know if this is related to your question, but I read on NASCAR.com that NASCAR will be taking over the video rights starting with the 2013 season.

This is the article, but it does not mention SPEED.


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- NASCAR and Turner Sports announced Monday a restructuring and extension of their long-standing digital partnership. The new agreement takes the relationship through 2016, with NASCAR managing business and editorial operations for its digital platforms beginning in 2013 and Turner Sports continuing to oversee advertising sales and sponsorships across NASCAR-branded digital platforms.

"Turner Sports has been, and will continue to be, a great partner for NASCAR," said Brian France, chairman and chief executive officer of NASCAR. "Taking a leadership role as it relates to our digital rights is something we as the sanctioning body know is important for the future of our sport, the development of our drivers and most importantly, the experience for both our current fans and future followers."

"Turner Broadcasting and NASCAR have helped make each other successful for more than 28 years through a working relationship that, over time, has evolved with the media and technology landscape," said David Levy, president of sales, distribution and sports for Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. "The latest extension of our partnership is a strategically and fiscally enhanced business model for our company and ensures that NASCAR.COM remains a core asset of Turner's leading digital ad sales portfolio. Our unrivaled sports assets and scale offer advertisers the means to deliver the most targeted and relevant marketing messages across multiple digital and mobile platforms and properties."

Under the new partnership, NASCAR will assume operational control in 2013 of all of its interactive, digital and social media rights including technical operations and infrastructure of all NASCAR digital platforms. Turner will continue to represent sponsorships and advertising for all NASCAR digital platforms, with the unique users from the NASCAR digital properties continuing to roll up to the Turner digital portfolio.

NASCAR's comprehensive digital and social media portfolio includes NASCAR.COM, the official online destination of NASCAR which provides racing enthusiasts with an all-inclusive offering of engaging content including fantasy games, video highlights, social elements and in-depth editorial content. NASCAR.COM, and the sport's other digital and social media platforms, have been managed by Turner Sports since 2001.

"This move is about the media, our sponsors and most importantly, our fans," said Marc Jenkins, vice president of digital media for NASCAR. "We will build an innovative portfolio of platforms that strives to be as diverse as it is comprehensive. For our fans, our digital platform will become the online destination for all things NASCAR. For everyone else, it will be the vehicle we'll use to turn them into fans."


I would like to know what's up also...
