Will You Watch This Weekend’s Race?
Mike Harper - SOZ

To watch, or not to watch, that is the question. I believe NASCAR made a huge mistake when they decided to move the XFINITY Series race from Lucas Oil Raceway across town to the “big track” Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) back in 2012. At the time former NASCAR president Mike Helton said, “Everybody wants to grow, and we’re no different than that. I think it speaks to the commitment that NASCAR and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway have with each other...

Is NASCAR Still Bigger Than The Drivers?
Mike Harper - SOZ

I remember the days when the very first thing to do each morning was to visit the JAYSKI web site to find out what the latest rumors were in NASCAR.

Texas, Fontana and Phoenix provided historically low ratings and according to Sports Media Watch, the 2017 Texas television ratings, “tied as the lowest in the 20-year history of the spring Texas race.” They also stated the Texas race “was...

Who do you trust more: NASCAR on FOX or NBC?
Mike Harper - SOZ

In the life span of NASCAR, broadcast partners have come and gone.  Some have even come back and left again. If you’ve watched NASCAR over the past 10 years you’ve seen ESPN, FOX, FS1, NBC, NBCSN, SPEED Channel/TV and TNT, all have taken their shot at covering the sport and entertaining the fans. For me, FOX Sports has a special place in my heart because of my days of contributing on the SPEED TV web site. You might remember SPEED...
