after two years of NHRA on Fox, how do you feel about the coverage so far?


Pros: there certainly is more coverage with friday and saturday qualifying being show on tv (although most of it was on FS2 which I don’t have). Tony and Dave is a decent announce team, not great like Paul and Mike, but they don’t irritate my ears so that’s a plus for me. The “My Journey” segments are pretty cool and is a good way to learn more about the drivers.

Cons: I can’t put my finger on it but the overall feel of excitement doesn’t seem to be conveyed well. I think there’s way too many interviews and segments, to the point where it gets overwhelming. I know there’s some deadtime between rounds but they would show this stuff right in the middle of rounds. Camera angles are another problem, why switch to three or four angles during a pass? I wish they’d stick to one angle.
