Foyt here is my question to you.. would you not pay extra for a NASCAR network because it is a budget concer(i.e. you just can't afford to put more money into T.V) or are you a person that believes that it should all be free and NASCAR shouldn't make all the money it can from it's product? Not judging(YET) just curious
It would just not be important enough to me to pay anything extra for it. I consider myself a fan, but that label itself is short for fan-atic. I do not consider myself a fanatic. I have attended races at Michigan, Indy, Bristol, Rockingham & Daytona. I am not a driver lover or hater. I spent time at Indianapolis Raceway Park when John Bickford was selling Jeff Gordon shirts out the back of his car and the tickets for my first trip to Daytona came from Kenny Schrader.
All that being said, I have more important things to do with my $$ than spend on additional TV networks. Perhaps it's like Poole used to day...the sport hasn't changed, I have. It's a matter of priorities.
So, you say, "Foyt, you pay for Sirius" which is correct. I would have never thought of paying for radio until I bought a 2005 Jetta which had in-dash Sirius radio with a free trial subscription. I got hooked on commercial free music and then 128. So, yes, I do pay for radio.
I could care less about who makes the money, it's just a matter of priorities.
Now, I will say that my LT is transferring to Dover AFB this fall....one track we've never been to....so next year I'll be broadening my horizons.
