Fox Sports Chair David Hill Says NASCAR Telecasts Are "Too Long"
The lengths of NASCAR races are too long and should be shortened in the future, Fox Sports Chair David Hill said last night during a Fox Sports reception on NASCAR's Media Tour. Hill said, "There is more diversion ... more opportunity for stuff than any other time in man's history, and I think a lot of the races are too long." An ideal broadcast in Hill's eyes would include 40 minutes of pre-race coverage, a 3-hour race and 20-minutes of post-race coverage. Hill suggested that shorter races might help reverse declining NASCAR ratings.
