In-Progress At Pocono: Sprint Cup And Nationwide Action
There is a big weekend of racing on tap. Three series are racing on three different racetracks in three different cities.
SPEED kicks-off the coverage with Steve Byrnes hosting Sprint Cup practice at Noon Eastern Time. Byrnes will be joined by Jeff Hammond and Larry McReynolds in the announce booth. Veteran Matt Yocum will work with TNT's Ralph Shaheen reporting from the garage area.
After the practice is over, John Roberts will be along with NASCAR Live at 1:30PM. Bob Dillner and Hermie Sadler will be his reporters for this show.
Then, for the first time ever, the Sprint Cup Series qualifying will come along without the NASCAR on Fox gang. This time at 3:30PM, it will be Steve Byrnes calling the action with Hammond and McReynolds alongside. Down in the garage area will be the TNT team of Marty Snider and Lindsay Czarniak.
The ESPN2 guys will sneak-in one hour of Nationwide practice at 6PM. Dr. Jerry Punch, Rusty Wallace and Andy Petree will be in the booth. Jamie Little, Shannon Spake and Dave Burns will be in the garage area.
