Motorweek and a 110

Roger Mecca recently came up to my place and recorded a Tire Tracks segment for Motorweek. I haven't previewed the episode, so I'm hoping I don't sound like a fool....

I went through a few pages, didn't see the 110 listed. Do you know what episode number it will be?

I found the program description with the VW and the Acura on Velocity (FiOS Ch. 631) for May 24th at 7:30pm.

It states that the original air date is May 12th at 8pm but I do not see it listed on my channel guide.

Also just found it for 5:30am on Sunday the 15th FiOS Ch. 523 NJTV. Can't see any earlier recording for the episode.

I believe the episode is released for distribution tomorrow, but each market may not have the Motorweek show airing that day.
Locally, WITF ("Why, It's Top Flight", or "Where Is The Food") has Motorweek scheduled for 11am on the 14th.

Yes, but it is rebroadcast on many networks, Velocity being one of the more popular ones..

Green-ish over the original grey. I hope it looks better in the video than stills. Those were taken after I waxed it. Got rid of all of the chalk, but didn't add much sheen.

Marty, thanks for the link. I didn't see that when I looked this morning....

It was fun! Roger and the cameraman Dave spent about 8 hours on a beautiful Sunday driving around my property and some local back roads to get 4 minutes of footage.

Nice footage!

I am one who occasionally watches Motorweek on public television if I'm in the garage on a weekend.
Was this segment broadcat as part of the show or just online?
