I like this idea. They should try and Christopher Titus. He's a huge fan, knows a lot about the sport, and would shake things up. Just a thought.

This part I have to strongly disagree with. I listen all weekend, every year, to the Indy audiocast. Some of them seem mildly clueless when it comes to Sportsman racing; and especially/specifically Stock, Super Stock and Comp. Now, I know, I may be one of the world's experts on Class Racing. But I can't even count all the times I have cringed at some of the things said. For example, a SS/EA '10 Cobalt (FWD conversion cars are not allowed in traditional S/S; only GT and Mod classes). And other things. If Alan Reinhart was the sole announcer for S/SS, I would say yes. Some of the other people they get--a resounding NO (or let them announce the .90 stuff). Comp lost one of their only real good announcers this past winter (Leo).

Good news here.

"The agreement calls for FS1 to provide coverage of Friday and Saturday qualifying and Sunday eliminations for each NHRA Mello Yello Series event, with a minimum of 16 Sunday eliminations shows to be presented in a live coverage format, and the remainder shown either in weekend afternoon or primetime time slots. Four of those live elimination shows will air on the FOX national broadcast network."

FS1 seems to have a different vision.

FS1 does an excellent job with F1. They have a team on air that is made up of an ex-driver (David Hobbs), an ex-F1 mechanic (Steve Matchet), and a very good commentator (Bob Varsha). They also have their own guy in the pits.

If they do 1/2 the job with NHRA coverage that they do with F1, it will be 100 times better than what ESPN has been doing.
Great post! I'm looking forward to the fresh start!
