In-Progress At Michigan: Craftsman Trucks On SPEED
Racing will return to MIS on Saturday afternoon as the Craftsman Truck Series takes to the big superspeedway.
Krista Voda will kick things off with The Set-Up pre-race show at 2:30PM for thirty minutes. Both pit reporters, Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander, will join her.
It will be Michael Waltrip returning to the announce booth at MIS to provide analysis of the event alongside Phil Parsons. Veteran play-by-play announcer Rick Allen will call the action.
The Truck races on SPEED usually generate very few comments because the production has been solid now for several seasons. This is a SPEED crew and the results of their dedication can be seen easily by viewers. This series has a feel all to itself, and the racing coverage is simple and effective.
Michael Waltrip is returning to a team of announcers who have worked without him recently, and did an outstanding job. Waltrip's presence changes the on-air dynamic of the race because of his enthusiasm and personality. While some viewers prefer the laid-back style of Phil Parsons, others feel just as strongly that Waltrip's excitement adds a nice touch to the team.
