BRING NON-NASCAR MOTORSPORTS BACK TO SPEED CHANNEL!!!!!!!
http://www.extrem.hu/data/1/1168/5208.jpghttp://www.speedtv.com/_assets/library/img/medium/1905_schumacher02_5md.jpghttp://www.motortrend.com/features/112_0205_rim_1_s.jpg
We are petitioning SpeedTV and Fox Cable to resurrect programming now either lost completely, programming which is broadcast off-hours (11pm-5am), or programming which could be extended or increased. This programming includes:

-Formula One
-World Rally
-Grand Prix and Circuit Racing
-SCCA Racing
-Motorcycle Racing
-Dakar Rally

Speed Channel is flooded with NASCAR and dumb reality shows that rerun and rerun and rerun. Lets get some great sports on TV again!

WE NEED 65,000 SIGNATURES so please tell your friends!
**
**
The reason why this is so crucial to motorsports is that if media coverage is discontinued teams will lose sponsors! Without sponsors teams will not be able to afford to compete! Rally is already in great need of volunteers to work events. Money is tight and entry fees will continue to rise. Please save this sport by signing the petition for more media coverage! And it's just way cool to be able to see the WRC on TV! :)

Please do it for Travis Pastrana, Stig Blomqvist, Patrick Richard, and if no one else, then do it for me!

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION! (http://www.petitiononline.com/SpdTV/petition.html)

Thought this one was pretty good
9756. Dave Myklebust I am becoming less and less a fan of Speed TV due to the lack of interesting programming. In addition, with the inclusion of Toyota to the ranks of the Nextel Cup series, I am no longer a NASCAR fan. WRC,Various Motorcycle racing, Formula 1, Swamp Buggy Racing (more interesting than the Toyota Cup)

Hate to tell you guys htis but....ONLINE PETITIONS NEVER WORK.

It's a worthy cause, but if you really wanna make a difference, write physical letters to Speed Channel along the lines of "zomg, less nascar more right turns, plz". Or whatever it is.

Online petitions are lazy and anyone with even the slightest whim can sign one in a couple seconds. Letters and physicaly gathered signatures have real impact because htey had real effort put through. This lets the execs know that people actually care enough to do something other than continue to sit around clicking crap on the computer.

It's a start and it gets the word out. This way the author has everyone's email address and if it doesn't work he can email everyone and ask them to send real letters.

Who knows.. we'll see.

Sadly it's true, but what Rallyk said is a good point. At least it's a list of people that care. :)

I signed it, its got 12,000 signatures so far. and I would not mind to sit down and take the time to write a letter ither. Ither way it is a light ammount of physical evidence that there is an audience still. Hell post the address of who we should write to. I would much rather see an evo doing a 180 powerslide through some shanty town ^.^ than a camry driving 500miles in a circle!

Number 12977 here. I also wouldn't mind writiong a letter to them. Every since that nascrap came on, I've never flipped to speed channel b/c theres always something gay on it. I'll post that link on Tamparacing.com to get some more attention.
