In-Progress At Texas: ESPN's Big NASCAR Friday
As the season draws to a close, this is going to be an interesting Friday for the NASCAR on ESPN2 gang.
Beginning at 6AM, and running through until 10AM Eastern Time, the popular Mike and Mike in the Morning Show will be live at TMS. The show will originate from the cafeteria in the infield, and any NASCAR fan with a ticket for the infield can attend the show live. Both Jimmie Johnson the driver, and Jimmy Johnson the former NFL Coach of the Dallas Cowboys will be featured as guests. That should be fun.
At 1PM, ESPN2 shows the first NEXTEL Cup practice session live. This interesting twist is a positive one for the network. The normal ESPN NASCAR gang will be announcing, but I am not sure if they will be in the Infield Studio or in the booth. TMS is a tough place to call any on-track action from a studio in the infield.
A special early edition of NASCAR Now follows at 2:30PM for thirty minutes. Ryan Burr will probably be the host, but with this show....anything goes.
The Friday action is wrapped-up at 4:30PM with live NEXTEL Cup qualifying that is scheduled for two hours on ESPN2.
This is a big day of action for ESPN, and it certainly will lead up to one of the most exciting NEXTEL Cup races of the year.
