    Crap. I have Verizon FIOS and I don't get FOX Sports 2.

    Edit -- No Fox Sports 2 in HD. Verizon does have FOX Sports 2 in old-fashioned non-HD TV format, but I can't seem to get the right aspect ratio. All of the choices for aspect ratios that I have still make the picture stretched horizontally, some worse than others. Sucks . . .

    I'm liking the variety of cars all driving together and it looks like a lot of people came out to watch too. I'm might try to make it to MRLS in May to watch.

    Crazy finish to the GTD class! What do you think about the penalty, then reversal of the decision? I think they got it right in the end, but the Audi was ahead going into the kink, so I am not sure. With an outside move it seems like you can't just expect the car on the inside to leave room on track out...

    Loved the new classes and racing but the broadcast was flubbin' idiotic.

    Scheduling the broadcast to switch between 3 different channels and streaming...? It took me 30 min to get everything set up. I only to realized FoxSports2 wasn't available in my area after I sat down to watch, It then took another 30min searching for a stream that actually was working. IMSA.com had no obvious link to the streaming on the site and when i finally found it, it was down for the first two hours- i ended up finding the camera stream link on a 4chan for godsakes.


    If the United series actually wants to increase viewership they need to rethink this multi broadcast and supplemental streaming approach. The casual viewer or anyone over 45 would have given up about 10 seconds into trying to figure out this debacle.

    they are just scared of losing money from the lack of views. A 24hour slot for this broadcast is gonna be VEEEEERRRRRY expensive.

    Good to hear that Memo Gidley is going to make it. That wreck looked really, really bad wreck.

    I found the coverage so bad this year, and did anyone notice how empty that stands were during the race?? Crazy how Nascar can sell out nearly every race.
