Today marks the end of an era with the end of Speed Channel.

RIP
Speed Channel

Starting tomorrow, Saturday, August 17th, 2013 Fox Sports 1 will replace Speed Channel. A lot of your favorite "Car Guy" TV shows have moved to Velocity Channel like, My Classic Car with Dennis Gage and Car Crazy with Barry Meguiar.

Some shows like Truck U with Bruno Massel and Matt Steele and Two Guys Garage with Kevin Byrd and Willie B have moved over to GAC or Great American Country channel.


Speed Channel started out as Speedvision but then in 2002 it changed to Speed Channel. The change in content is due to Fox deciding to compete directly against ESPN for the loyal and strong sports enthusiasts audience.

I personally have been a long time viewer and fan of Speed Channel being a "Car Guy" and of course during it's run I had good fortune and blessing of being on a number of Speed Channel TV Shows.

A pretty good selection of these shows can be viewed here,

Kind of sad to see her go but sometimes change is a good thing...

Anyone else have an opinion about the end of Speed Channel and the start of Fox Sports 1?
