I can't remember the exact wording, but just before 7:30 p.m. ET during Sunday's race, the announcers came on saying something along the lines of ABC had to keep its obligations to America's Funniest Home Videos and was moving the race to ESPN2? What the !@?!@!?Really?

I dare say not even hockey would get treated this way.
There's a good blog I like to read regarding NASCAR TV coverage called the Daly Planet and he has a couple of good posts if you'd like to read more
