    Looks like they are gaining a little steam.

      7 races on network

      Any word if these are time buys?

      Personally, the more races I can watch on a U.S. network, the fewer times I can get screwed by TSN's awful scheduling (here up north of the border).

          I read the article but failed to see how much CCWS is being paid by these three networks for the rights to carry their races. Anybody know?

            More presence on Speed is good for them.
            All the races are still time buys though. The schedule is good, but I'll bet it is costly based on their numbers from this year. I can't see them getting more money for commericials. I hope for the viewers sake, they don't just sell more commericial time for more revenue.

              must be why NBC is dropping NASCAR

                I fail to see how that is relevant. The IRL TV Schedule Press Release also failed to disclose how much they were getting paid. As has NASCAR's. And every other series in the world that announces a TV schedule.

                  Now if they would only get Varsha back in the booth, I'd be a happy camper.

                    I second that

                    Hell, I'd settle for Tommy Kendall

                      Ah but the difference is NASCAR gets paid for TV and shares the revenue, the IRL get's paid and it goes into the league coffers (and probably helps pay purses and keep santioning fees down). But CC has to add one more expense to keep the series viable.

                        Thanks for the info. We had no idea CC was buying their time on network

                          Well at least they say... Fox has bought the rights... or ABC/ESPN has bought the rights... but in this article niothing like that. Just the suggestion that this proves that things are improving.

                          So does that mean that they are being paid now or that they are having to pay less. Or how about... We're paying the same but getting more?

                          I mean how is this proof that things are getting better for CCWS instead of how things are getting better for NBC CBS and Speed?

                          BTW this wasn't the TV schedule... they aren't telling us in this article what races will be on network and which on Speed. This is the announcement of the deal....

                          an announcement short on details but long on spin.

                              At least CC is getting their act together enough to put a TV schedule out before the season starts, that alone is an improvement.

                              Even though it will tax KK's platinum card, this is a step in the right direction for them.
