In-Progress At Texas: Friday Practice, Qualifying And "Trackside"

SPEED kicks-off a full day of live NASCAR coverage from the Texas Motor Speedway on Friday at 1PM Eastern Time with Sprint Cup practice.

After this ninety minute session, John Roberts hosts a thirty minute version of NASCAR Live at 2:30PM to get caught-up on all the latest NASCAR news.

SPEED's new program produced by the NASCAR Media Group is called NASCAR Confidential, and viewers can catch a re-air at 3PM. The show profiles several very different personalities that were involved in the 2008 Daytona 500 in very different ways. The six episode series is an interesting concept, and well-produced.

At 4PM, the Go or Go Home show runs-down the issues of who has to make the race on time alone or face the long trip back to Carolina. SPEED has been struggling to keep the focus of this thirty minute show on this topic, so we will see how things go this week.

Sprint Cup Qualifying is up next at 4:30PM and it certainly should be interesting to see how this unfolds. No doubt, several teams have been putting their best efforts into taking this high-profile and valued pole position. Mike Joy will lead the Fox crew in the announce booth.

John Roberts will host another flexible edition of NASCAR Live after qualifying that will transition the network up to the featured show of the night, Trackside. This 7PM Eastern Time show is hosted by Steve Byrnes with panelists Darrell Waltrip, Jeff Hammond and Larry McReynolds. Each week, they welcome several NASCAR guests.
