  • Here Is How a Broadcast Partner Should Do It

    Turn on the Today show. As you may know, NBC is NASCAR's broadcast partner for this part of the year.

    They just teased a piece that showed Matt Lauer driving around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Tony Stewart's #20.

    When was the last time someone from ABC or ESPN got in an Indy car?

    Partnership is a wonderful thing if executed professionally.

    Saw it on Channel 13, the affiliate. First Tony took him around at speed, then Matt drives at a top speed of 121.

      Can you imagine Paul Page in a car??

      Woah! Wooooaaaahhh!

      Seriously, I guess Scott Goodyear could do a piece on ABC's morning show (whatever it is) and drive one. I don't think anyone could just get into an IndyCar and drive it like that. At least a stock car is similar in size, etc., to a real car.

      Maybe their star anchor (whoever it is) could take a ride in the 2-seater?
      One driver's "fuel strategy" is another driver's "speed up or we will park you!"

          ABC could send a reporter and a driver out in the two seater at, Indy. Hook both up for sound bites. Stick a cmera on the back. Could be fun.

            Excellent idea, Tara. It would, however, require proactivity and willingness by the partner. Unfortunately, that is not likely to happen apparently in our lifetime.

              And then they could do a practice pit stop and drop the car on Jack Arute, sidelining his blathering for the rest of the season. A guy can dream anyway.

                Is Matt the dude with the awful laugh on the King Show. If so Tony should have stuck him in the wall permanently.

                2007 will bring many interesting things.

                  I'd like to see Jack used as "soft wall" material, myself...

                    Careful, Bluestang. You don't want to get Paul started talking about his racing "Career". Years ago, he couldn't do a broadcast without talking about his racing "career".

                      Why keep hammering on the broadcat partner? They're doing their job - broadcasting.

                      Sounds like something the IRL Marketing Department should instigate - if they were so inclined. Unfortunately, that is not likely to happen apparently in our lifetime either.

                      There is an IRL Marketing Department, isn't there?
