Sunday's Morning Shows: "NASCAR Now" and "RaceDay"
Ryan Burr kicks the day off for ESPN with the Sunday morning preview edition of NASCAR Now on ESPN2. This hour will feature Nicole Manske reporting from Kansas and also the NASCAR on ESPN team previewing the race.
RaceDay is up next on SPEED. Host John Roberts is joined by Jimmy Spencer and Kenny Wallace for what should be a very big show. The crowd is expected to be huge, but the same old RaceDay problems exist. The "swooping camera" thing is beyond old and the show has still not figured out how to deal effectively with the fans.
Wendy Venturini sits down with Jack Roush this week for her Real Deal segment. Roush has suddenly become a key player in The Chase and with Greg Biffle leading the way it should be interesting to see what Roush has to say on a variety of topics. Hermie Sadler will join Venturini during the program as reporters from the garage area.
Live guests on RaceDay will include Greg Biffle, Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick. Perhaps, the program will also take a moment to honor the memory of Paul Newman who enjoyed stock car racing very much and owners like Richard Childress should have good memories of the man who said acting paid the bills but racing was his passion.
Also in the AM will be a re-air of NASCAR Performance on SPEED at 10AM and NASCAR in a Hurry comes along at 10:30AM. Larry McReynolds, Chad Knaus and Bootie Barker discuss the Kansas race from a crew chief's perspective while Randy Pemberton previews Kansas using the footage and highlights from the weekend on the second show.
