I really can't stand the "radio style broadcast". The gerbils are bad enough doing a regular broadcast.
He reminded me of how good it is when he announced the SRX series and how much of a mess the Nascar races are.It would be swell if Allen Bestwick would do broadcasts again. He's one of the best in the business, and has the professional attitude of a mature broadcaster.
I miss his presence in the booth.
From what I kinda remember he more or less got monster pulled out from under him when Kyle ran the KBM Xfinity car? And that was pretty much the end of his nascar career
So Suarez isn't Mexican?Good group to honor the racing heritage for stage 2. They won’t be able to top the last great blunder moments from Ken Squire…which I’ll never forget. We laughed our arses off.
”..that Jones boy” created a catchphrase for the rest of Eric’s life.
”..Suarez…the Mexican”. My wife and I looked at each other and said..”…did he just say what I thought he said?”
And that was the last broadcast of a great legendary announcer, who went one too many.
Replace Burton with Ricky and NBC would have a decent broadcast. It would be a simple change to make. One announcer, a driver (Jr.), a crew chief plus Ricky who comes from a biking background and knows different types of racing in general (including NASCAR). I thought he was interesting and engaging to listen to also. Put Burton off somewhere doing only occasional commentary.He has a different slant on things.
Not really. Steve had a serious problem with trying to learn the handling of the car. He couldn't seem to get the "throw it into a corner" syndrome of sprint car racing out of his reaction. I don't know what Bernstein thought Kinser would do in that car but Steve couldn't make the transition from sprints to something weighing nearly three times what he had been used to. .Steve Kinser's only problem was the owner of the team.

yeah they called me after I "communicated" with them and that was one of the topic I discussed. So you are eliminating 9 channels which means a rate hike and all we get is an apology? I have a wait and see for the time being to see if Peacock will pick up the slack. They don't even mention Nascar on their web site at present. It was tweeted by Justin Long that they would stream three races.. Whoopie, two of the three will be on NBC anyway. I'll do a dish something if I have too. Trees will fall if I need to do that to get a dish to work properly. What a bunch of B.S. money grubbing sob'sBut your rates won't go down.
