Unless they aren't starting eliminations until noon local time, Sunday isn't live. Pro Finals run at 4:20pm local.. 6:20pm eastern. They will be over as the show is starting.

I think if you look at the other tv shows scheduled at upcoming events, this is the only time Pro Stock is on a split off show. It looks like they only had a 2 hour window to work with, so instead of hacking the main show to pieces they gave Pro Stock their own show so it is still 3 hours worth of eliminations. I noticed Houston is also only a 2 hour show, but Pro Stock is not contested there so there is no reason for an extra show.

why even do this?.....you $pend production hours to produce a unique 1 hour show different from your tape delayed, same day broadcast of nitro finals. you buy a 1 hour slot on fox sports.
how much has nhra already spent? and for how many eyeballs? maybe the nielsen ratings will be posted for this experiment?......and then of course the obvious. it's 2 days delayed in an instant world.
there's an effort of some sort being made here. don't quite understand it......as dave mentioned, maybe it is an isolated program for the AZ race only?

Fun fact to know and share. The network owns their own time. NHRA does not tell FOX when stuff will air. At the end of the day it is weird for me that someone who loves drag racing would not want to have an opportunity to see fresh programming during the week. No one seems to freak out at the prospect of the pro mod class having their show air days after the end of a race, right?

The fact is that the Pro Stock class will get 46 minutes of coverage in an hour show of their own, more than doubling their normal exposure in an eliminations show. Additionally, there is content in this show that WILL NOT be seen anywhere else, like a full on, wide-open shop tour of KB Racing that is so comprehensive it will be aird in parts.

If you think that the path of killing a class is petitioning a network for more and varied time slots to allow fans to see it in an expanded and comprehensive form with nothing else to detract from it, that's pretty whack.

Id love to to see fresh programming for ps, but not during the week when the race is over days ago, some fans will watch it but most fans wont bc of the time delay,its like going back in the 1990's and watching the drags days later after the results are posted wherever. Show it the same day at least. Help ps dont hurt it!

This is EXACTLY where I'm at with this deal, especially the point you make about the Pro Mod show. I LOVE that show, no matter the delay, and if the Pro Stock show is anywhere near the quality of that show, I'd rather have it that way than the sub-par attention the class currently gets on the main broadcast.
