Outdoor shows on America I include club golf, extreme championship wrestling, fantasy baseball and football, In Pursuit, and Links Illustrated. Other sports shows include championship truck and tractor pulling, National Wrestling Association (NWA) wrestling, raceline, real tree outdoors, sports pies, and sports truck connection.
