In Progress At Charlotte: Trucks And Cup Cars On SPEED Friday
It will be the Craftsman Trucks that take to the track at 9AM Eastern Time on SPEED for practice. Rick Allen and Phil Parsons will call the on-track action, with veterans Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander reporting from the garage area.
Immediately after that action, the NASCAR on Fox crew of Mike Joy, Larry McReynolds and Darrell Waltrip will begin to cover the Cup cars on the track. Matt Yocum and Dick Berggren will cover the garages during the two Cup practice sessions.
At 3:30PM the NCTS gang returns for qualifying. The SPEED crew of Parsons, Allen, Dunlap and Alexander will also return for the live telecast.
At 5PM the Cup cars roll-out for two very different qualifying sessions. First, the Sprint Showdown cars will have a normal session of two laps at speed. Then, the All-Star cars come out for three laps at speed with a four tire change done on pit road. This always makes things interesting as teams use different strategies. The Cup cars bring the NASCAR on Fox crew of Joy, Waltrip and McReynolds back to the air. They will call both qualifying sessions.
