In-Progress At Darlington: "NASCAR Countdown" And Nationwide Series On ESPN2
Allen Bestwick will kick-off the Nationwide Series action on ESPN2 at 7PM Eastern Time with NASCAR Countdown. The pre-race show will be thirty minutes, and Bestwick will be joined on the set by Rusty Wallace and Brad Daugherty.
Wallace will then head upstairs to the broadcast booth where he will be alongside of Dr. Jerry Punch and Andy Petree to call the racing action beginning at 7:30PM. Dale Jarrett is off this week.
Down on pit road will be the usual ESPN2 reporters. Veteran Mike Massaro, Dave Burns, Jamie Little and Shannon Spake will be covering the very loud pit road during the event.
This should be some interesting action tonight, and an opportunity to see Wallace work with Punch and Petree once again. Last time Wallace was in the booth, he had Marty Reid as the play-by-play announcer. Tim Brewer will be in the Tech Center, and Matt Kenseth will be the ESPN in-race reporter.
