Had my first look at the new Showtime NASCAR show.

Disappointing! and I say that just to be kind.

It seamed like most of this hour show was about the Edwards-Keselowski wreck.

Okay fair enough! But enough already!

I’m looking for a video magazine type show, instead I got to hear about why all four hosts thought No. 12 got what he deserved.

Even worse, two of the hosts are owners, I have a hard time listening to opinions from folks who are involved in the daily operations of a team like Michael Waltrip and Brad Dougherty.

It may be appropriate for them to talk about the daily business or the technical side of racing, but I have a hard time listening to their opinions about drivers who don’t drive for them.

Brad and Michael just pounded Brad Keselowski.

Did they have a personal axe to grind against the Big K?

That was the first question I asked myself when I heard them talk about No. 12

Maybe is just my cynical mind talking , but every time I hear someone’s opinion I always have to ask myself what’s in it for them?

In my opinion Michael Waltrip and Brad Dougherty, had no business voicing their opinions about the Edwards-Keselowski incident in this national venue.

What’s in it for asifyouknow? Nothing , I like both guys.

This show does need to do the right thing and get Keselowski on to defend himself.

Other than that the show was okay, I would not go out and get Showtime just to watch this, there is language you don’t usually hear on the regular broadcast , nothing special there, I work with some foul mouth folks, so I hear cursing everyday.

There was one bright spot in the show , the interview with Steve Letarte was very good,

it was done in a talk show format, all sitting on a couch, maybe most of the show should be done in that format.

Personally I’ll stick to my daily dose of NASCAR NOW and my Bleacher Report friends to get my NASCAR fix, it’s simple and straight forward .

As always this is just a fans opinion and from what I understand everybody has one and I thank god for that.

Enough said.
