Diamond P Sports produces the NHRA coverage on TNN, ESPN, and NBC.  They
cover other motor sports such as the Copper World Classic in Phoenix in
February, monster truck, mud racing, etc.  They have also produced a series
of tapes called "And They Walked Away..." (I, II, III, etc.) where they
show some of the spectacular wrecks in motor sports.  Watch Trucks and
Tractor Power, NHRA Today, and The American Sports Cavalcade on either
Saturday or Sunday on TNN to see examples of their work.  Watch their
commercials for a phone number that may head you on your way.  (I doubt
they do e-mail, though a guy who works for TNN and goes by the handle
Eldorado participates in r.a.s.nascar.  Monitor that newsgroup and when
you see one of his posts, drop him e-mail and see if he can't give you
a few hints.)

[snip, snip, snip...]     means that I've edited some thing out from the
                          original post (it's meant to sound like a pair
                          of scissors).
