Today Speed Channel officially ends to become the next sporting incarnate, Fox Sports 1 (FS1). Along with Speed, Fuel TV becomes Fox Sports 2 (FS2). These two channels will now try to go head to head with ESPN for viewers.
It has been many years since we lost the “real deal” of motorsports programming, Speedvision. While the new Fox channels are said to keep much of the same content, I have to imagine that we will get even further away from the interesting stuff and just more four-wheel for the masses programs.
