Things are a bit different this week with the Lowe's Motor Speedway races happening on Friday and Saturday night. Practice and qualifying sessions on Thursday will be split between SPEED and ESPN2.
It was a last minute move to add live TV coverage of the Sprint Cup Series that brought SPEED to the action on Thursday. It will be 3PM when Steve Byrnes leads the team of Larry McReynolds and Jeff Hammond on the air. Reporting for SPEED from the garage area will be Wendy Venturini and Bob Dillner. Coverage will consist of ninety minutes of live Sprint Cup Series practice.
Next-up is NASCAR Now on ESPN2 at 5:30PM hosted by Ryan Burr. Nicole Manske will be reporting from the track on all the news of the day.
At 6PM coverage on ESPN2 shifts back to the track for Nationwide Series practice. Dr. Jerry Punch, Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree will call the action.
The featured event of the evening will be Sprint Cup Series qualifying at 7PM also on ESPN2. Shannon Spake, Jamie Little, Dave Burns and Mike Massaro will be handling the interviews and reporting from the garage area. Tim Brewer will be in the Tech Center.
