Friday Qualifying on SPEED and ESPN2
Time for both SPEED and ESPN2 to handle the final qualifying sessions for both the Sprint Cup and Craftsman Truck series.
First up is Dr. Jerry Punch and his NASCAR on ESPN team. Homestead qualifying should have some drama, but lots of other stories are dominating the sport. Once again, ESPN is going to have to mix the reality of what is happening on the track with what is actually happening to the sport.
Andy Petree and Dale Jarrett join Punch from the Infield Pit Studio. Shannon Spake, Jamie Little, Mike Massaro and Dave Burns will handle the interviews. Qualifying coverage has been a tough struggle this season for the ESPN crew and this final session should be a challenge.
At 5PM it will be Rick Allen and Phil Parsons handling the Truck Series qualifying. Michael Waltrip will eventually make his way to the announce booth as well. Handling the interviews will be Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander.
Watching SPEED cover the Truck Series this year has been a blast and they have been rewarded with a tight championship race. Watching qualifying will tell the tale of how both Johnny Benson and Ron Hornaday Jr. will set themselves up for the race.
Use this post to offer your comments on both qualifying sessions. There will be a new post up for the Craftsman Truck Series race later tonight. The rules for posting are located on the right side of the main page. Thank you for taking the time to stop by the main page.
