MX Nationals on SpeedTV

May 31st, 2008 · No Comments · Events, Racing

I watched the Glen Helen national on SPEED TV tonight. It was pretty good. I think one of the main improvements is the absence of Ralph Sheheen. He was replaced by Aussie Leigh Diffey, who also calls the Rolex Sports Car Series and the American LeMans Series. Diffey is a good match for the MX Nationals. He understands racing and strategy and doesn’t try to embellish the race with artificial soap-opera drama. Sheheen always sounds like he’s calling a Monster Truck show presented by Entertainment Tonight. Diffey even makes Emig sound better.

But no one beats Dave Despain and David Bailey. Those were the good ole days…
