FYI, the Hotpass channels have appeared in the guide. 795 to 798 again.


The channel says Order NASCAR HotPass

It is HD but names are just CAR # and not CAR HD #
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

No. Shark fin has nothing to do with rear down force. The shark fin is in place for keeping the car stuck to the track when it gets turned completely sideways.


I realize what it does... It also has the opposite effect at times. Did you not see the cars getting turned way too easily? I did...

That had nothing to do with the fin. You could also say how it helped K. Busch from spinning out a few times.

Kyle Busch helped Kyle Busch from spinning out three times. I cannot imagine sliding sideways at 180 mph, and not wrecking. He may not be much on the personality and street driving laws, but the man can drive a race car better than anyone else on that track.

They were just added sometime on Monday. I'm confident they'll have it sorted in a day or 2.

Anyone heard of any new features on Hotpass this year? Or maybe some of the old ones coming back? I would still like to see a channel with the TV broadcast full screen with your choice of driver audio to overlay the broadcast audio. I'm pretty sure they did have this at one point. It would be nice to have it back.


I haven't heard about any changes from 2011 to 2012. I think they've pretty much settled on what we've had for the past couple of years.

It is a crime that they didn't give a channel to Danicka. A damn crime.

If she's carrying a camera they'll probably switch over to her when one of the others wrecks out.

How does ESPN always manage to be in a commercial break anytime anything exciting happens on the racetrack?

Because they are in commercial break for 90% of the race.

It would've been nice if Hotpass was available for NNS today. Especially after Danica's encounter with her teammate and at the end of the race when dumb and dumber took each other and half of the leaders out.


Hopefully they'll have a Danica feed ready when Harvick teaches both of the Busch brothers a lesson tomorrow. Hey speaking of that John Cena of WWE fame is the grand marshall.

Looks like rain might delay or shorten the 500. If they start seeing drops on the windshields and it's after lap 100 there will be some carnage.

I'd rather it rained it out for the day then shorten it! This is not one of those races which you like to see shortened.

Uh, Based upon what I've watched so far they better get the camera on her early? :lol:
None of the crashes were her fault however.

Why? With all the fire and head gear, you really can not tell if it's Danica Patrick or Mark Martin..

The last thing I want to see is NASCAR get turned into the circus which IRL had become with Danica.

Working today, whats the best place to keep up with the race? I can have sound at times, but it's better if it's just something I can watch for updates. Does Directv offer anything online to customers?

It's probably going to be rained out today as there is a 60 to 70% chance of rain at Noon which is the start of the Race.

Tomorrow looks doable!!! :hurah:

They may have a shot at starting between 6 and 8 pm according to what some meteorologists have been Tweeting.

If they do race tonight do you think Fox would push the broadcast over to Speed? Someone on a racing forum said he called D* and the rep told him it would be on Speed tonight. I really don't think a rep would know such a thing but maybe I am wrong.

I thought I recall it being mentioned last year that NASCAR has an agreement with FOX in place that the Sprint cup races can not be pushed off to one of their cable sister channels.
