"SPEEDWEEK" SET FOR FINAL LAP ON ESPN
Published August 8, 1997
"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).
