Nationwide Series Race on ESPN2 From Dover
The Monster Mile was acting up during the Friday and Saturday on-track activity with both NASCAR series. The Nationwide Series is going to be facing a green track, but Kyle Busch seems to have the field covered by quite a bit.
It will be Dr. Jerry Punch, Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree who bring fans live coverage on ESPN2 of the Nationwide race at 3:30PM. Down in the ESPN Tech Center will be Tim Brewer and Bestwick, Wallace and Daugherty will be in the infield studio.
Pit reporters will be Jamie Little, Shannon Spake, Mike Massaro and Dave Burns. Dover is a notoriously dangerous pit road and the Nationwide race has drivers of various skill levels. It should make for some pit action to remember.
Look for the cars at the back of the pack and see how many decide to retire before the first fuel stop. The Nationwide Series is continuing to grow a "start and park" crew at the end of the field. The lap ticker should tell the tale.
Dover is fast and the action is often intense. This should be a test for Punch and company in the booth to keep the energy high for the duration of the broadcast. It is a very good rehearsal for the Cup race on Sunday.
