In-Progress At Milwaukee: Craftsman Trucks On SPEED (Updated)
The Truck Series comes to Milwaukee for another good battle on the kind of track that is well-suited for this series.
Rick Allen and Phil Parsons will call the action and as usual Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander will handle the pit road reporting duties. Krista Voda will begin the night with The Set-Up pre-race show at 9PM Eastern Time.
Things to look for tonight are the contrast in styles between a race with Michael Waltrip as the third booth announcer and this race with just Allen and Parsons. The last short-track race was a wreck-fest, and it should be interesting to see how everyone behaves on this fast and flat oval. Look for the pit reporters to have plenty of stories to discuss.
This just in: A Daly Planet reader points to this story on Jayski that basically tells the tale of a Truck Series team that will make the regular NASCAR driver, Chad Chaffin, step-out of the Truck during the race to let a paid driver take-over. British driver Paul Poulter has brought financial support to the team, and just as we have often seen in Sports Car racing, will be racing "his" truck. Let's see what the SPEED guys have to say about it.
