Most hardcores have already purchased a communication device that allows the track fan to hear the pit crews strategize during the race. They can change the channels and hear all the going's on of their favorite teams in pit row during the race. So.... the "call" of the race is useless to the avid fan. They have inside coverage. Watch a NASCAR race and see how many fans are wearing those obnoxious headsets. XM last year began broadcasting this feature to give better coverage. I wonder if the channel was done as a result of requests from NASCAR fans who were XM subs?

However, as a subscriber, I cannot tune into the driver of my choice. It is many drivers on one channel. Bandwidth issues probably dont allow XM to do individual driver channels during the race. Anyway, if you are not watching the race, it is very difficult to listen for effect. It's a neat idea but, for me, it required the visual aid of TV. Perhaps really hardcore fanatics can ascertain what's happening from that broadcast.
