In-Progress At Texas: SPEED's Very Strange Friday
It certainly is a strange Friday for SPEED, as they have a wide variety of NASCAR programming on that is going to be fascinating to watch.
Noon Eastern Time has the Busch Series practice, scheduled for one hour. We can assume that Steve Byrnes, Jeff Hammond, and Larry McReynolds will be upstairs in the booth, and usually Wendy Venturini and Bob Dillner are on pit road.
The network returns with NASCAR Live at 2:30PM before presenting the Survival of the Fastest episode from Atlanta at 3:30PM and the strange little Go or Go Home show at 4PM.
After a break, the network comes back for Busch Series qualifying at 6:30PM and leads directly into the one hour live version of Trackside at 7:30PM. This block of programming could be tricky to do, depending on what has transpired on the track during the day. But, it needs to get done on time for one reason.
The Craftsman Trucks take to the TMS high banks at 9PM. SPEED has told me that during the 8:30PM live edition of The Set-Up pre-race show, Kevin and DeLana Harvick are going to have a major announcement about their Truck Series plans for 2008. Krista Voda hosts the pre-race, with Rick Allen and Phil Parsons calling the action for the Trucks. Ray Dunlap returns to SPEED to cover pit road along with Adam Alexander. I have no word on whether Michael Waltrip is also on the TV crew.
