    Read This: Speed Channel winds down

    Filed under: TV/Movies, Read This

    On Saturday, August 17 at 6:00 AM, Speed will go off the air. It's channel will be replaced by a new multi-sport network, called Fox Sports 1. Rumors that a switch were in the works first emerged in late 2012, while things became clearer in March, when the FS1 name emerged. That story disappointed a lot of people. It disappointed us. While Speed's heavy focus on NASCAR got annoying some times (switching away from the 24 Hours of Le Mans for Sprint Cup qualifying comes to mind), it was still a great source of motorsports coverage.

    As the network prepares to go off the air, Street & Smith's Sports Business Daily staff writers Tripp Mickle and John Ourand have penned a touching recap of the events that preceded the shutdown, while capturing how many of the employees are handling the change. It's a great read, and we strongly encourage you to take a look.Speed Channel winds down originally appeared on Autoblog on Sat, 10 Aug 2013 08:55:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
