Default Offshore Racing on Television

I live in the northeast and no one is televising any offshore powerboat racing on tv. I sent a e-mail to speedtv to see what gives and nothing. Could use some to get through the cold winter months.

I set my DVR to record Reggies show too. I see nothing on TV.. I check all the time.. Yeah what does give... It used to be more and more.. I "thought" we would start to see more too.

My cable doesn't even carry Reggies show. I think it is a conspiracy.

You're not missing much that "show" is mostly a Fountain commercial. Hopefully they will start showing some more real racing soon.

There will be three new ones coming out this week too.

PLUS.......The greatest book of all time on offshore racing..... the 600 plus pages of John Crouse's SEARACE. Plenty of reading to keep you warm this winter.

This season was awful, actually glad it was canceled. I couldn't stomach the last three shows. From what I understand, Reggie stopped funding the show early July. I was hoping to see some UIM races on Speed this fall, but nothing yet.

This is what you need......watch on your own schedule and without the hairpiece and gold chains.
