I guess this is old news but since I didn't watch the door-slammers at the Glen, I just ran across it. And L-O-L, God bless the know-nothing rednecks for getting their PBR overheated as NBC insulted them by bringing in their excellent, lead open-wheel announcer, Australian Leigh Diffey. Comment after comment on Twitter blasted NBC for having someone with a "British accent" announcing their beloved American brand of racing.

Missing Leigh this weekend on F1 while he covers the Indycar finale.

People are idiots. I thought Leigh did an amazing job. Their coverage of the Watkins Glen race, using announcers around the track like on the radio was great.

Stands are not full anymore. They get a few foreign drivers why not a announcer?

If every fan at the race was insulted that could mean a dozen or so upset fans (lol).

Or Criss Econowacky and his endless "how was it out there, sport" babble. At least this guy has seen some cars turn left as well as right.

Oh c'mon I like Larry McReynolds, I'd trade him for Steve Letarte any day. Nothing against Leigh Diffy but I enjoyed Bob Varsha on F1 today. Maybe he should have done the NASCAR.

Leigh Diffy is a professional, and he is good at whatever program he has hosting duties over. I really like having him on NASCAR. I am so used to seeing and hearing him on F1 (usually in the morning time for me) that it is a nice change to hear him in the afternoon when NBC airs NASCAR/Indy races.

If some NASCAR fans are up in arms about him, then it is not about the content - it is simply about his accent.

Don't tell Leigh he has a British accent.

The Nascar fans will have to learn what a bonnet is and how to spell tyres. He might lose them altogether if he brings up bangers and mash or mushy peas. (Both are excellent)
