WTF?! NASCAR on Fox News

Not sure if this is a first or not, but we never remember it happening....

At the top of the 7 PM hour on Saturday, Fox News was airing a NASCAR pre-race show show on the network.

Yes, Fox NEWS was airing sports.

The NASCAR show aired on FNC until a baseball game on Fox Sports 1 was finished.

Is this the first time Fox News Channel aired sports programming?

If you jumped on the Fox News' Twitter feed at the time, the network said nary a word about program preemptions.

Is Fox News becoming the backup channel for Fox Sports now?
