How Much Would You Pay to Watch a NASCAR race on TV?

Suppose that NASCAR decides to put all the races on a premium paid TV network like NASCAR Network. The races would no longer be free, but you would get commercial-free race coverage.

You would never come back from a commercial to find that a caution was out — and your favorite driver was wrecked.

You’d also get a few extra premium services like in-car audio and driver to crew chatter.

When the races weren’t on you could get NASCAR news 24/7.

How much would you pay to watch NASCAR?

$5 per month?

$20 per month?

Or would you just forget the whole thing and watch bowling instead?

Would you watch the NASCAR TV Network?

NASCAR is the only major sport in America without its own Network. We’ve got the Golf Channel, the NFL Network, and the Major League Baseball Network is coming in January – but still no NASCAR Network.

But the talk keeps getting louder that NASCAR will start its own network to carry more in-depth coverage of the sport.

Would you like to see NASCAR come out with its own Network? If so, what would you like to see on the NASCAR Network?

I don’t think you’ll see live races – NASCAR is not going to compete with its major TV partners on that one.

But you could see race replays – maybe condensed versions of Sunday’s race on Monday night that only last for an hour or two.

Maybe we could get a better post race show that lasts for an hour or so and really breaks down the race and interviews more people after the checkered flag flies.

After all, the networks that carry the race are ready to go to another show as soon as the winner climbs out of the car – and sometimes before. Remember what happened at Phoenix earlier this year when ABC dropped their coverage with just a few laps to go.

Would you like to see the NASCAR Network? What kind of programming would you like to see on it?

The NASCAR Network would also be a great place to learn more about the history of NASCAR. Lets interview some of the people who have made NASCAR what is is today.

So – would you like to see the NASCAR Network? What kind of programming would you like to see on it? Would you be willing to pay a little extra to see the NASCAR Network? If so, how much would it be worth?

Give us your comments. I’ll forward them on to NASCAR so they will know how the fans feel about a NASCAR Network.
