I’ve been sitting here wondering why FS1 is dedicating so much air time to the Watkins Glen 6 hour race, which is great, but refused to cover LeMans with anything approaching competency.

The answer I came up with is NASCAR. Not only does NASCAR own this race but Fox has handed Sprint Cup races over to NBC so all of their pre-race/practice, etc. coverage is done. In short, it’s a combination of Rupert Murdoch and Brian France. An unholy alliance if there ever was one.
