If you are like me, most of you probably hate Nascar Nation and really miss Dave's show being on nightly. I don't even watch Speedtv at night anymore because of the new format. Lets get Dave back on weeknights and get them to show Nascar Nation only on Sudays. Go to Speedtv and write to Windtunnel and then to the general comments for Speedtv and let them know how you feel.

Lets get Dave back where he belongs!!

Thanks

It wasn't bad enough to cut out alot of the touring car/f1/wrc racing now to cut back on wind tunnel all for the sake of nascar coverage 24/7. Plus now they have started with the american chopper/hot rod type cr@p which are basically days of our lives with welders. Speed needs to get back to where it started, I could care less about the behind the scenes interviews with nascar drivers/crew/mom/sister in law whatever. When I turn on speed at 3am I wanna see something with 4 wheels going around a track of some sort, not some feel good bs, or somebody worring about making a deadline.
Most of the stuff on speed today is neither educational nor entertaining.

Agreed. Same thing happened with much of the stuff on TLC and Discovery. I used to enjoy watching Monster Garage/House with my young daughter but those have turned into melodramas, as well. We need more Windtunnel and Two Guys Garage and less idol worship of kids who got a NASCAR break. Remember what "they" did to TNT. Used to be great racing and how-to shows. Now just more TV noise.

I still like Dave's show, but on Sunday evenings, I'd rather be spending time with the family and not parked in front of the tube. At least when it was on during the week I could listen while working on the car.
