Fox Sports Chief: Please Shorten NASCAR Races

Hill said Monday night the length of races — many stretch well into a fourth hour — is one of the problems that's contributed to NASCAR's sinking television ratings. "I think the racing is far too long," Hill said during Charlotte Motor Speedway's annual media tour. "There is more diversion, more opportunities for stuff than any other time in man's history."

Hill said the ideal for Fox would be a four-hour broadcast window, with 40 minutes of pre-race coverage and 20 minutes of post-race coverage. Asked if he'd push NASCAR to shorten any of its races, Hill didn't miss a beat.
