Program Notes: Dale Junior and Dale Jarrett Both On ESPN2 Friday
Just a reminder that the very interesting Shifting Gears TV series featuring Dale Earnhard Jr. will be airing the second episode Friday evening at 6:30PM Eastern Time.
This timeslot is just early enough to miss it as it airs, so this would be one show to add to the DVR or TiVo line-up. This ninety minute episode follows a 6PM NASCAR Now show hosted by Ryan Burr. Co-host Nicole Manske will be reporting from Daytona.
ESPN2 also offers Dale Jarrett on-the-air at 3PM as a part of the broadcast team covering the Nationwide Series qualifying. Fans are already a little upset that the network did not choose to cover earlier practice sessions, but ESPN2 gets a clean slate for their coverage this season. We wish them all the best.
There are lots of changes on the ESPN broadcast team, and this qualifying show will be a good "teaser" of the personnel in-place for the Saturday Nationwide race.
SPEED will also be live from Daytona on Friday from 10AM to 3PM Eastern. The network will carry a NASCAR Live program, and then cover the Sprint Cup practice for the 500.
Following that afternoon session, Trackside is at 6:30PM, NCTS Set-Up is at 7:30 and the Truck Series race follows at 8PM.
It should be a fun day and night of NASCAR TV with a great ending.
