Wind Tunnel only 30min.?

I know it's been a while since it started back, but I never heard an explanation as to why they went from an hour to 30 min. I'm a fan of D. D. and miss the longer show. Anyone hear anything about this?

If Speed would let DD off of the leash and let him do what he wanted, we would have a some really good moto coverage. But that would be an hour less a week to see NASCAR highlights that we've already seen a dozen times. And how could we do without another rerun of RU Faster Than A Redneck?
