Very interested to see how this Aston does during the 24 hour race.

Need to find out what sites will be livestreaming it, since Speed is going away...

Fox bought it in response to NBC buying the Versus channel. They keep claiming they're not going to remove stuff and blah blah, but we all know better than that

Fox messed up Speed enough, if it's 100% theirs now...yeah.
