SPEED Offers All-Star Announcers With Daytona Memories
Before you go to work on Wednesday, make sure and set your DVR, your Tivo or anything else in your house that can record SPEED Channel at 5:30PM.
As a TV person, this is a great opportunity to have some of the greatest announcers in NASCAR history appear on-camera together. Barney Hall, Ned Jarrett, Ken Squier and Mike Joy will sit down for a thirty minute program specifically about Daytona.
These four have seen a lot of history with the Daytona 500's that they have experienced. This SPEED program will allow them to look back on those special moments, and offer their own personal memories of that time.
This special Voices of the 500 jem will be tucked inside the SPEED line-up for Wednesday. While it may not be a prime time blockbuster, for veteran NASCAR fans it will simply be a treat. Each of these men has an incredible and very different perspective on the events they have seen at Daytona over the past decades.
The opportunity to get them together does not come along too often, and is a part of the big SPEED-HD roll-out during the 100 Hours of NASCAR promotion. Fans should make it a point to get this recorded if you cannot watch it as it airs. Over time, it may come to be a favorite program and a vivid memory of NASCAR's history.
Thank you to those that provided this information. This special moment deserves attention.
