I need a little help here. I'm hardly tuned into all the choices available when it comes to watching a race. I realize there are new, and some might argue better, ways to watch a race than turning in on one of those lame-o "television-sets."
But then I hear Allan Bestwick announce that ABC is done televising IndyCar races this season as it hands off to ESPN. And I see more and more NASCAR races presented on FS1 while my localist Fox-network station keeps showing some bunko-artist telling me how easy it is to flip houses -- over and over for as long as it would take a Cup racer to drive 500 miles -- in a golf cart.
So tell me, is the media leaving me behind, or are more fans leaving racing behind. Because I'm suspecting the latter. But I've never watched a race on my computer, never mind cellphone. Nor am I about to. Is that what fans are doing? And if they are, then why does race-coverage include graphics so tiny I can't read them on a full-size TV?
I was just wondering.
