Thursday Testing Show On SPEED
This will be the page for reader comments on the 7PM Eastern Time version of SPEED's Pre-Season Thunder as they continue with this daily pre-season show.
With on-track action complete for the Sprint Cup Series and the first test session, the program moved into the studio. Steve Byrnes and Larry McReynolds co-hosted the show, with pre-recorded features and news reports from Bob Dillner and Jeff Hammond.
The network continued with a good amount of driver soundbites that touched on a lot of the new issues in testing as a result of the COT. These interviews featured the top teams and showed a good cross-section of teams and agendas.
It was nice to have Larry McReynolds back, because he speaks to a lot of fundamental issues that really show his all-around understanding of this series. His commentary in this first pre-season appearance was right on the money and continues to be accurate to the finest detail. Larry Mac was back.
This is the type of program that SPEED made the commitment to add for this season and with good results. Establishing for fans a daily show at 7PM during this run-up to Speedweeks is a very positive step for SPEED. This NASCAR series has also served as a promotional platform for SPEED's coverage of the Rolex 24 in late January.
