"SPEEDWEEK" SET FOR FINAL LAP ON ESPN

          "Speedweek" will "end its run" on ESPN after 14 seasons
     on the air, according to Richard Huff of the N.Y. DAILY
     NEWS.  The half-hour weekly program airs at 12:30am ET and
     is produced by IN-based Linger Group Productions.  An ESPN
     spokesperson: "It served us and race fans well.  It set the
     stage for what we do now with ESPN2's racing franchise." 
     Huff: "Once one of the only sources of racing news on the
     air, 'Speedweek' has suffered from inconsistent scheduling
     on ESPN and competition elsewhere" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 8/8).
