SPEED: NASCAR Live from Daytona

SPEED Channel rolls out the NASCAR Live program with multiple Daytona shows hosted by the wonderful John Roberts. Following Daytona 500 qualifying, Roberts and a fresh-voiced Jimmy Spencer showed the positive side of NASCAR with solid information and opinions about Speedweeks.

Coupled with reporters Ray Dunlap, Krista Voda, and Bob Dilner, Roberts is clearly the top studio host in the SPEED stable. Jimmy Spencer turns into a completely different person when his sidekick Kenny Wallace is not around, and Spencer offers heartfelt emotion and solid information that is sorely lacking on the Raceday series. Roberts and Spencer have a chemistry that is easy to enjoy.

Without the hype that surrounds many Fox and SPEED telecasts, the large stable of analysts, reporters, and anchors are finally allowed to shine. One simple program like NASCAR Live featured ten veteran announcers and provided more information for NASCAR fans than all the earlier telecasts combined. This is SPEED at its best, focused on information and racing.
