I agree wholeheartedly. The show use to be fun and entertaining and not boring like Dave's other show. I just feel that unless a person dies or leaves on their own that if it is not broke don't attempt to fix it.
Alain was good, heck, can't nobody keep Mike Waltrip in line when he gets on a role. If you would want to improve the show in anyway, get some of the top and winning drivers on the show. Too many shoulda, coulda, oughta win drivers. Get Carl Edwards on the show. Hey then it want be an all Chevy crew.

I agree wholeheartedly...Dave Despain has ruined the show...Alan did a great job and it was very entertaining and informative. Alan had a great deal of knowledge to add to the drivers comments. We watch the races and see the events ourselves....we don't need to be told what happened...let the drivers be themselves and entertain. The same with Nascar Nation...that show was ruined by change also. Glad to see that we're not the only ones that feel that way.

AMEN REV,First they need to get rid of Dave 'thepain Despain. Second, get Allen back, if they cant, at least get someone who knows something about Nextel Cup. Third, try to rotate the drivers,Get some Ford & Dodge drivers. Fourth, dont build the whole show around Waltrip,After all he'll be driving a 'riceburner' next year. Fifth, give me a reason to start watching the show again..NUFF SAID.

I wonder if anyone from Speed checks these message boards? Then they would see how disliked Thepain is. How about bringing some older drivers on the show for their outlook. Cale Yarbrough comes to mind.
