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 read about any changes. For me the best option is Trackpass Scanner from NASCAR.com while I watch the race broadcast.

Cars will be on track tomorrow for practice and racing in the Bud Shootout on Saturday.
Also, Speed will be showing the Bud Shootout starting position drawing tomorrow night at 8.

It's a relatively short off season but it seemingly takes forever.

Well, the ARCA race was pretty typical. One major wreck during the commercial break, and a boring race until the last 4 laps... Yawn.

Very sorry to hear that Christopher Myers, 19 yr old son of Fox Studio announcer, Chris Myers was killed in a car accident though. All the best to him and his family. He is one of the better announcers on Fox.

Now the Bud Shootout is the kind of racing I like to see (well, except for the cars barrel rolling).

They've made the rear spoiler too short. The lack of downforce on the rear of the cars is going to cause a mess. I'll he shocked if there isn't at least one GWC.

I don't think the spoiler is too short, the shark fin is too tall.

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.

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.
