I am watching the Busch race on NBC right now. It is advertised as HD, but I really doubt they have even one real HD camera. It is wide screen, but the picture is for sure not HD. How do they get away with calling this HD. The Nextel race is in Atlanta and this race is in Memphis. I suppose all the cameras are in Atlanta, but why bother promoting this as HD.

I thought it was HD also, so much in fact, I wrote a nasty letter to NASCAR about NBC's terrible HD, then Sunday, watching the race in Atlanta, it was obvious they didnt have HD cameras in Memphis, or their uplink wasnt able to support HD, cuz it sure wasnt in HD.
