Horse Racing Instead of "NASCAR Now"
This will be a post to discuss the live draw for post positions in the Kentucky Derby that was supposed to end at 6PM.
NASCAR Now was scheduled in that timeslot and the live Derby draw is still on the air at 6:20PM.
Your comments are welcome below as we all watch this on-air issue continue. I have not seen an explanation on the lower third information panel. ESPN is in SportsCenter, and ESPN Classic is in soccer.
Update #1: ESPN2 just ran a promo for SportsCenter at 6:20PM that talked about the show that began at 6PM, so it looks like the Derby show is being "time-shifted." They also used a lower third graphic to say NASCAR Now was coming up next.
Update #2: For those of you just coming home to review the VCR or the DVR for NASCAR Now, you actually have the draw for the Kentucky Derby. NASCAR Now was pushed back to 6:30PM, which loses a lot of viewers who normally record the show.
