    Absolutely loved DW the racer and I’m sorry for those that didn’t get to seem as he was very, very good. I can’t comment on him as an announcer as a lot of times I have the broadcast on mute. None of the broadcasters add a lot to the the races for me.

    I wished the powers to be would quit making them wear a suite and tie. A nice golf shirt would look good and be comfortable. I hate watching a person on a 100 degree day in a suit and tie.

    It would be nice to incorporate the radio broadcast and the tv broadcast together minus the delay.
    The radio version (PRN,MRN) of the race description is more desirable to me .

    I am not sure what the delay time is, but would an easy solution be to just delay the race a few seconds using the DVR?

    This is how they need to kick off a race, instead of a bunch of talking heads B.S. ing. The drivers are the stars of the show and that should always be remembered as #1 instead of reduced to a stat starter sheet interrupting their announcing no telling what at the start of the race. They have plenty of time to do this when the cars are lapping behind the pace car.

    So i notice every time i watch the truck division they have michael waltrip as a guy in the broadcast booth. And i cant figure out why. All he ever says is "this is some fantastic racing we are watching right here" or "these athletes are so good at what they do" like we cant see for ourselves.

    Then in the closing laps last night freesen (sp?) is running low on gas but does waltrip talk about that? Noooo he says something about "all it takes is one slip of a tire and chastain will close that gap" trying to build fake drama. He does these stupid comments every race bc he doesnt know what else to say.

    They should let him do his clown show on pit road before the cup race and keep him there. He does not belong in the booth.

    None of them in the booth were talking about Friesen running out of fuel. Probably because Friesen's crew chief Trip Bruce when he was interviewed said Friesen was fine on fuel.

    They flat out blew the call,as soon as he went to the apron after running the high groove you knew he was in trouble.
    Announcing isn’t Nascar's strong suit right now.
