    Sounds good...I wondered if they were cutting out all of the FOX Network BS.
    :sure:

    ever hear the saying, 'letting the fox guard the hen house?'

    you are, however, spot on about 2 tire companies never working in a competitive racing market.

    Still no hotpass channels showing up on the my Phillips receiver, just getting "Channel not available" message.

    But I'm getting the Directv logo on the D11 model, may have to switch the receiver around if this race gets started today. Plus nobody uses the D11 receiver anyway.

    In Canada on my provider all 4 channels have shown up, and are briefly cutting in and out of the camera/driver views to the HP logo and music

    It looks to me like they're holding off until the race starts...

    not sure what you are asking but the answer is that the race will be on FOX whenever it runs and until the end.

    FX is no longer an option. doesnt matter as rain is no longer a major threat.

    Next week fox has a late race so it has to go but is there a way to fit in on a week day night this week if gets to late as if the race runs to 10 or later some foxes may just go to there news after the race.

    Full line up or Simpsons only?

    They have a old American dad that will likely end have to be cut for time.

    But a late race + 2 hours of new shows may be pushing it 12/1 am for the Local news?.

    Interesting, they haven't said such on FOX... In fact they said tire failure. If it had been a puncture I don't think they could say tire failure.

    Never work? I dunno about that. Like I said at least bringing in Hoosier would keep Goodyear honest so they'd make a quality product that won't fall apart.

    Yup, I agree. Start them at noon in the time zone where the race is, except night races.
