    Yeah, I want the choice to toggle between censored driver audio and uncensored driver audio.

    When Kasey Kahne is in the 5 next year there might be a chance of a Hendrick Hotpass sweep.:D

    That reminds me of the post from a couple of days ago ...
    I had trouble finding Harvick ... his car had Brad Keselowski's number on it and when the driver took off his helmet I could see it was really Kurt Busch. Harvick's number was on Kasey Kahne's sponsor's car (which was Junior's?), although I'm liking the black intimidator colors. (Hopefully channel 796 will follow the car all the way to victory lane.)

    Simplify the points system? It could take a while just to get used to the new numbers and colors. :D

    Is it odd that the in car is....several seconds ahead of the main feed box? At least it is on 796 Harvick's channel.

    Edit: Obviously being the future is bad for your engine. Dang!

    Not a good day to be a HotPass driver so far (29 blows up, they replace with the 5, who wrecks with 24 and 48).

    And (for now) only the 88 survives. Who would have bet that after 30 laps the only Hendrick car undamaged would be Jr's.

    Just when you think you've seen it all leave it up to NASCAR and Helton's worthless fat ass to find yet another way to screw things up...

    Will be a minor miracle if there's a dozen cars left in the end...

    Just what exactlydid he mess up this yr as opposed to last yr? The trackbeing this smooth is a big reason for a lot of the driving. The spoiler and front nose r the only changes on the car and lasti checked just about everyone wanted those done.

    hey this is a lot better than last year. Id rather them be a tad ahead then be 5sec behined like last yr. You'd hear the crew chief count down 5...1 when pitting and it'd always be way behined last year.

    Definetly although you have to have a delay incase someone says one of the seven words you cant say on TV. Any event this is my first time with this and I like it the only thing id tweak is the audio selection between the announcers and crew and a mosaic channel to follow all the action on one screen.

    Yeah we used to have the selection option and also a channel that was the main feed with about 15 drivers audios to play over or instead of the main feed. was nice, also each channel had dedicated announcers that would always go to the pits and ask the chief and driver questions. on the hotpass channel itself with the driver u had multiple combinations of choices to select for the audio. Though this was when we all paid for it so its kinda tough to bicker about it in its current form while its free. lol

    Good point, I think one thing that id like to see is a fans choice channel similar to what SiriusXM has in which the fans pick their favorite driver for the 4th channel each week.

    I'd be happy to pay $100 per year and get the extra features back. Now I just use Trackpass Scanner and flip between the Hotpass channels thoughout the race.

    Same here. Actually, I only use the Hotpass channels if the race broadcast is in a commercial or Smoke is on one of the channels. Other than that Hotpass Lite is not of much use if you have Trackpass.
