I CAN DO SOME JERRY PUNCH BUT WALLACE AND MUSBERGER WOULD NOT BE ON ANY LIST THAT I WOULD MAKE FOR RACE COVERAGE. WALLACE IS IRRATATING BUT I CAN'T HANDLE MUSBERGER EVEN FOR FOOTBALL. MAYBE SOMEBODY WILL POP HIM AGAIN.

Please keep Tony Korholer off NASCAR! If he's on there we won't get to see half the race, he will do like he does on NFL chatter with his co hosts & we don't get to dee any of the game because ESPN loves Tony & keeps his ugly face on the scree till the 1st half is over. He's not welcome in Florida anyway

Over the last few weeks I have become more and more concerned over the fact that ESPN could not think of the average Nascar viewer and bring together a crew of experienced drivers, crew chiefs, owners, broadcasters, and other people familiar to Nascar in order to show that ESPN is reaching out to the fans who have helped to build Nascar into the enourmous spectators sport it is today. I undersatand Nascar's push to pull more and more people into the sport and ESPN's appeal to a broad range of viewers. My hope and amny other people I have spoken with is that the sport is not dumbed down by people attempting to be knowledgable about a sport they themselves are just now getting introduced to. Most Nascar fans are very knowedgable about the history of the sport and about the technology which continues to grow. Rusty Wallace is a gret start but more time needs to be used in reaching out to the base which will make up the viewing audiance of both the Nascar and Bush series.

15 laps to go at the California Busch race. Aside from Wallace, the broadcast team sucks. Fox did it 100 times better than this.

I knew Rusty Wallace would get his big mouth into The Cup series somehow. Hell, I'll watch it on TV but also have the radio on so I don't have to listen to Rusty's big piehole.

I love Rusty He was the Only driver ever to send me a letter written by his own hand I contacted him because I was trying to market something I had made and he was really nice and gave me advice.I sent a letter to DEI about the same time all I got was a typed letter inpersonal and wasnt even from the division I needed. Thast one of the reasons I like Rusty I rather listen to Rusty than Michael Waltrip that voice grates on my last nerve

Rusty Wallace is a crying loser, only reason he is ther cuz of sex affair with Rodger Penkse.
Brent Mustburger should stay covering bowling like he did in 60s, he is idiot.

Rusty was a better driver than commentater. Half the time I wonder what the hell is looking at when he is spouting off. And if his talentless kid is driving all you hear about is how 'he's gonna get some of those 32 laps back, I'll tell you what'.

They should get Kyle Petty and fire Rusty. Kyle isn't much of a driver, but he's very good as a commentator.

THERE ARE TWO THINGS RUSTY CANT SHUT UP ABOUT:
1.The so-called 'aero loose' crap
2.Steven Wallace is just 'learnng

THERE ARE THREE COMMON A$$HOLE SAYINGS BY JERRY PUNCH
1.'He goes SAILING By!'
2.'Lets go to a commercial break!'
3.'This telecast is available in high-definition presented by VIZIO!'
For these reasons up to Chicagoland Ill Watch FOX and TNT then switch to MRN For the rest of thes season. Ill watch the trucks on SPEED and Nationwide Ill listen to MRN

ESPN and ABC has the worst and I mean WORST annoucers DR.Jerry Punch an reject, Rusty Wallace makes me want to puke 100% loser and whiner and steal with fag voice, Kyle Petty a smoked out loser amounted too nothing is whole career living on his dads history, Brent Musenburger is just plain stupid and should be evaporated and sent to space for a sample of earth, I lost interst all together with these two Penske ass kissers networks, if you are going too watch the race shut the sound off and skip the advertisements my sponsers, send NASCAR a message write letters too them.. Put on Fox and leave it there= The sponsers and TV counts must show that, they spy on everything else. Watch basebal, football, porn, news anything but ESPN/ABC sucks

Yeah, Kyle did a good job...

I liked the Fox coverage better than either TNT or ESPN. Then the upcoming ABC coverage is going to suck. Hated it last year. No much chance of it being any better this year...
