In-Progress At Phoenix: Sprint Cup Qualifying And Nationwide Practice
Thursday on SPEED begins the coverage of the NASCAR activity in Phoenix. The Nationwide Series races on Friday night and the Sprint Cup guys on Saturday.
SPEED comes on-the-air at 7PM Eastern Time with Sprint Cup Qualifying coverage hosted by the NASCAR on Fox crew of Mike Joy, Darrell Waltrip and Larry McReynolds.
Qualifying will be followed by coverage of Nationwide Series practice that will begin at approximately 8:30PM and run until 10PM.
This weekend is a bit different, so here is brief rundown of the Friday TV shows and the times of the Nationwide action.
Friday, Trackside starts the night at 4PM Eastern Time. Hosted by Steve Byrnes, this show features Waltrip, McReynolds and Jeff Hammond on the panel. This week the show will welcome Kurt Busch and Elliott Sadler.
SPEED continues with Nationwide Series qualifying at 5PM, followed by Sprint Cup practice at approximately 6:30PM. A flexible edition of NASCAR Live with John Roberts will take the network to the final Sprint Cup practice at 8PM.
ESPN2 is next on-the-air with a 15 minute version of NASCAR Countdown at 9:30PM and then the Nationwide Series race at 9:45PM Eastern Time. Please note that live NBA basketball precedes NASCAR Countdown, so if the game runs long NASCAR will begin to collapse down to the start time of the race itself.
