Since December 31st 1995, SPEED has quenched the desire of auto enthusiasts all over the world by providing 24 Hours a day motorsports programming. Fans could always count on SPEED to satisfy their automotive appetite with live racing events, motorsports news, automotive lifestyle programming…simply all things motorsports.
Beginning August 17th 2013, SPEED will no longer exist. Rather, it is becoming a new channel that is positioned to be more of an ESPN competitor with an emphasis on Soccer, College Basketball, MLB and other stick & ball sports. Yes, the new channel will feature some NASCAR events, but nearly all of the other programming you have grown to love over the past 18 years will be replaced/cancelled.
