How the NFL could put a damper on NASCAR fans in Charlotte

   NASCAR fans in seven affected markets will watch ABC’s telecast of Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway on alternate channels through arrangements made by their local ABC affiliates.
   ABC affiliates in Buffalo, Charlotte, and Rochester, N.Y., will join either "NASCAR Countdown" or the race telecast in progress following the conclusion of a 4:30 p.m. ET NFL preseason game between the Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins.


  1. What is historically the best race in the universe is being pre-empted by an out-of-market preseason football game in the heart of NASCAR country? This is Pat McCrory's fault, I'm sure.

  2. I believe that is probably the Charlotte/Rochester area; not Charlotte, NC.

  3. I stand corrected. Jayski/ESPN is reporting that it is Charlotte, NC. Doesn't make sense for a DC/NY game... ESPECIALLY, a preseason game.
