Fan Awards: Best TV Show

    Fans have a number of opportunities to get up to speed on NASCAR each week before the green flag drops on another Sprint Cup Series race.

    The television airwaves are full of original programming designed to give viewers the latest news and entertainment features about their favorite sport.

    For the second year-in-a-row, RacingOne's choice for "must see TV' for every NASCAR fan is SPEED's "NASCAR RaceDay" preview show which gives viewers the definitive prep for that week's race.

    SPEED's solid line-up of reporters and personalities is a perfect mix of just the right ingredients to make "RaceDay" the best of the pre-race programs against ABC/ESPN, TNT and FOX.

    With host John Roberts in place running the show, viewers are given the latest and most up-to-the-minute news directly from the garage area by two of the most talented reporters in the sport today; Bob Dillner and Wendy Venturini.

    Each brings in-depth knowledge and a nice rapport with the personalities in the garage to the telecast. And while the news is delivered in a straight-forward manner, there is still enough lightheartedness - without stooping to silly or stupid - to make things fun.

    Jimmy Spencer and Kenny Wallace join Roberts on set and do their best to keep things controversial and jovial at the same time, although the act becomes a bit forced from time-to-time and sometimes wanders into "Hee Haw" territory.

    The irritating Rutledge, who must have compromising photos of some network executive to stay on the air, is the weakest part of the program.

    While we will continue to criticize SPEED for dumping NASCAR and all racing-oriented programming during the week in favor of an insulting line-up of "specialty and enthusiast lifestyle" shows, the network is dead on when it hones in on NASCAR coverage during the weekends.

    Overall "NASCAR Raceday" has everything a fan would need to prepare for the race right before the drop of the green flag.

    What other NASCAR television shows are your favorites? "NASCAR Today," "This Week in NASCAR," ESPN, TNT or FOX's Pre-Race show, and "Wind Tunnel" are others in the mix.
