I don't think NBC will...

do as good a job as Speed did. Probably won't air races live and they'll probably be edited to fit in a particular time slot. Just a guess though...

I only hope they keep Bob Costas in another time zone from the broadcast, he's insufferable.

From the original press release --

NBC Sports Group will televise all 20 races of the 2013 season - four on NBC and 16 on NBC Sports Network - as well as qualifying, practice sessions, studio shows and re-airs, amounting to more than 100 hours of programming annually.

I see they brought Will Buxton over from Speed. That's a plus. He's good at what he does.

Hes really the only part of the speed team that I liked. Hes also the only one of them that was actually at the races...wonder if that's a coincidence or something...

So the "Bob's away at Barrett Auction" crew from Speed. I'm not big on Leigh Diffey. He gets a bit too excited. And Hobbs will be interrupting Matchett again like he always does. Same shit, different network.

Matchett's the one who says har-der tires over and over, right? As if no one understands the difference between the words "hard" and "harder".

Thinking about going to see a race at the Nurburgring this summer. Before spending a grand, just want to see if it's worth it. Thoughts?
