Morning NASCAR TV: RaceDay and NASCAR Now


Boris Said joined Ryan Burr for the one hour morning edition of NASCAR Now on ESPN2. This team has an interesting chemistry and Said has been working hard to keep his answers concise and his opinions unbiased.

Burr is locked into the ESPN Chase script, but did a good job of covering the news issues of the day with Angelique Chengelis and others on the program from Dover.

Burr will return Sunday night at 11:30PM ET for the wrap-up edition. Fans recording this show should add at least an hour to this time, as live events may back ESPN up during the evening.

RaceDay from Dover is always a happening. There is a big crowd and no doubt Kenny Wallace will keep the volume level high. Host John Roberts is on a roll after his long-time pick Greg Biffle finally won a race. Jimmy Spencer will be alongside of those two for the full two hours.

Wendy Venturini's Real Deal is an interview with Greg Biffle. Rutledge Wood plays billiards with some drivers for charity. Roberts reviews the problems Chase contenders have experienced at Dover and looks at the win streaks that are in trouble for Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon if they don't win over the next couple of races.

Anyone have a clue who the "pooch" guy is they are using on Speed, doing the "chase" rap? Kinda annoying.

I haven't found anything on the web this morning except good comments about Joy. The video and audio of his call is on the tampa bay rays website.

bill,

There is a website that shows vidcaps of the signs from college gameday on ESPN. They are hilarious.

The college kids make them up and try to get on-camera. You can Google around for it.

There is a new post up for the Cup race.

Wonder whats the odds on Kool Aid Man mentioning the shared pits on ESPU later?

Raceday just covered the sharing of the pit stalls! I think they have done good at covering the guys outside the chase. They talked to Labonte, Martin, Newman, Smith and Carpentier and I doubt that ESPN will do the same!

This is one of the best RaceDay shows of the season.

RaceDay was really good. Nice to see the segment on winless seasons. A really interesting story.

A really good show today nice to see Wendy out along pit road & the haulers again - not in a back lot somewhere ( not that Dover has one really)

BTW are they EVER gonna add a 43rd stall & fix pit road? Otherwise NASCAR should pull 1 race & move it to KY.

Mike Joy only got rave reviews here in Tampa & anywhere I saw on the web. He did good last night!

Happy to take your personal comments about Joy and the baseball game. Posting anon comments as an anon is not going to cut it.
