It was a sickening bow-down to political correctness just like when Sports Illustrated had the gall to vote him athlete of the year.

And, just for the record, political correctness is defined by finding the stupidest and most sensitive individual in a population...and then cater to that individual at the expense of the group.

The beginning of the year, the best start in motorsports, and they continue to not utlize it.

It sets off a boring tone right out of the gate.
Always wondered why they do not show the anthem, leading right into first pair of fuel cars.

I was appalled They can't show many sportsmen races but they have time to interview that total weirdo. Fox Sports s---s. I will never watch another live broadcast again. It will be on on my DVR so I can fast forward over that type of garbage and the commercials too.

Last year, They showed the finals of the Sportsman classes. Don't know what happened with this one. The Only one that they showed was Stock.

It might be because of Brittany's crash and the editors and producers were caught with their pants down.

I believe they started the live FC final 15min. earlier than normal. They had a couple fluff interviews after TF, so they could have squeezed it in if they played their cards right. Maybe they were predicting a oildown considering how E1 went.

Exactly what Steve said in post #15.

Since we are gripin' about the show. I'll chime in, yes I am still thankfull we have this much broadcast time.

As mentioned, how bout the national anthem?
Please lost the 1000 foot walk with...fill in the blank.
Lose the encyclospeedia.
Always have tales from the strip.
Show more on track action, fire ups, burnouts.
Less human interest stories.
Show more racing, oh. I said that already.

All Access is worth every penny, love it, get to see so much action.
