Someone did. Called MAV TV. You can watch IHRA and Lucas Oil Drag Boat Series there.

The part that gets me is NHRA pays ESPN for the time slot. Wouldn't you think they should get what they pay for?

You can blame the NCAA for the Delays . NCAA requires ESPN to televise so much of a % Women's sports (Title 9) Live and to Completeness , it is in their Contract, $1 billion or NCAA can cancel all Mens Football, Basketball, Baseball etc.
So NHRA gets to play 2nd fidle, tape delayed gets the shaft :)

Correct. THEY don't show drag racing anymore. Most shows are homages to John Force, his daughters, or Jeg Coughlin, or the latest flavor of the week moltorcycle pilot. YOU just know NHRA had a fit wnen their sweetheart Angelle (don't know what her last name is this month) "retired". Good thing Force brought out his girls, but it does make you wonder WHY Alexis isn't getting the coverage, or could it be because of her IDIOT husband.

How about some REAL drag racing; stock, super stock, etc.

NHRA racing is the least popular thing that ESPN televises............by a huge margin..........If the NHRA didn't pay ESPN to put it on you wouldn't see it at all

It shouldn't get you...it is the answer to the question. Their is no viewership or advertising revenue for an NHRA event for ESPN. They only bother because the NHRA pays them. BTW, new NASCAR TV deal 2 billion I believe, those guys know how to promote a boring series of left turns. NHRA couldn't market heaters in the arctic.

I guess YOU missed all the EMPTY seats at the races this year, huh?

NASCAR is, like NHRA, finding their product is oversold, over hyped, boring, and WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. Seats at the Brickyard that were $35.00 are now OVER $90.00, and they weren't all that great of seats.

Key to marketing USED to be sell the product your customers want, NOT give your customers what YOU think they'll tolerate. The thrill of watching Force slide through the lights upside down on fire is gone. It is time NHRA/NASCRAP got back to offering their CORE followers what THEY want.

Maybe Force should buy the TV spot 75-90% of it is his family on the TV anyhow, and make MAV-TV have the real racing on it???? Are you listening Mr Lucas????

The NFL needs to have a rule regarding a Hall of Fame acceptance speech: The speech can not be longer than the player's career.
