ESPN II - UROC #3 on this Thursday

Hi mods, yes a cross post, but a necessary one so please leave it until Friday, Thanks.

Here we go again...round 3 on ESPN II...please help our sport and watch the show plus send feedback. Here's the info being sent to the competing teams.

Hello rockcrawling fans!
The next episode of the Skyjacker Toyo Tires UROC Pro-Nationals will be on ESPN2 this Thursday, August 12th at 4:00pm EST.

We need your help to keep the huge wave of publicity rolling! Inside Edition will be at Farmington this weekend and Good Morning America and CBS Evening News are still planning to do stories. Bonnie-Jill Laflin (one of our ESPN hosts) is featured in the September issue of Stuff Magazine on magazine racks right now. Lots of exciting things happening.

We appreciate everyone who took the time to help spread the word about the show last month. Its crucial to our success. Let's flood ESPN with phone calls, e-mails, etc to make sure they know that there is a huge audience out there that wants to continue to see rockcrawling on national TV.

Please ask your friends, neighbors, families, etc to take just a few minutes on Thursday to do one of the following:

Fill out the feedback form at:

http://espn.go.com/sitetools/s/contact/espntv.html

OR

Send an e-mail (include your name, e-mail address, city, state, satellite/cable provider and your comments)

askespntv@espn.twdc.com

OR

Call ESPN at:

(860) 766-2000

Assuming we can survive the time period between increased publicity among rednecks/hillbillys/etc and general acceptance by the more "intellectual" public.

Cracked me up too....esp when he said "Look at the damage to the underside of that vehicle!"...what a tard.

Somethink kinda pisses me of (cough-cough...Toyo tires). Loose the commercial footage of the crawler running over the bushes as the rig goes up the hill. That is the last thing that needs to be shown on tv

That was excellent! That optional climb that the super modified guys did - then only one modified guy did was great to watch.

Another good show. Be nice if it was an hour long. It is hard to pack a weekends worth of action and all the interviews into 1/2 hour. Comments sent.

Guessing maybe they already have something airing in those later spots

I think John currie makes a good announcer, pretty sweet layout, good action, just needs to be three times longer, 1/2 hr leaves you hungry for more, I think if they run these long enough to catch new viewers they can get a better time slot at make them pernament, gonna be strange watch'n this on mondays when they put Monday night football on unemployment

Good job Dean.

I thought that it was pretty good coverage. I agree Currie is a pretty good announcer. The one thing that I don't really like is in the interviews when the announcers start trying to talk about rivalrys and stuff. I'm not really up on all the competitors and everything, and I know its a "competition" but come on its not like these guys are drag racing or nascar racing and hate the other guys guts. Yeah they are going to go out there and try to win, but from the few comps that I have been to it really isn't all that heated, and for the most part the guys are out there having fun.
