I agree that FOX can be pretty clueless, but...
The NASCAR race yesterday was on ESPN. Bestwick works for
ESPN, not FOX.
And the F1 qualifying was on NBC (NBCSN, to be precise) not FOX.
And Bob Varsha was doing commentary. I have no idea (*) why
NBC didn't sign him to a season contract, but he's evidently
going to sub for the NBC regulars when F1 and Indycar have
(* actually, rumor has it that the Barrett-Jackson folks
insisted that FOX keep him on Speed network).
5. I am done
