Live Blogging The Nationwide Series And Camping World Trucks


It's a back-to-back NASCAR TV doubleheader on Saturday. ABC covers the Nationwide Series race from Talladega and then SPEED hosts the Camping World Trucks at Kansas Speedway.

Allen Bestick will begin the TV activity at 2:30PM on your local ABC television station. Rusty Wallace is still on vacation, so Dale Jarrett will join Bestwick and Brad Daughery for the pre-race show.

Jarrett will then head upstairs (no easy task at Talladega) and join Dr. Jerry Punch and Andy Petree to call the race. Down on pit road will be Shannon Spake, Jamie Little, Dave Burns and Vince Welch.

This TV production team is looking to recover from a rough outing in Phoenix last week. The entire telecast focused on Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch from start-to-finish. Green flag racing on the track was actually put aside while viewers watched Edwards' damaged car being inspected in the garage area.

Punch could hardly contain his enthusiasm when Busch got a lap back in the race. Needless to say, neither Busch or Edwards won the event. ESPN had egg on its face having wasted all this time profiling the two Cup drivers. All the stories of the other teams and drivers were pushed off the table.

Talladega should offer an opportunity to get back on the right track with long laps and pack racing. Hopefully, this event will allow the ESPN production team to highlight all the drivers and include as many sponsors as possible in this struggling series.

ABC is on the air until 6PM with the Nationwide coverage. SPEED comes on at 5:30PM with the CWTS pre-race show. So, once again NASCAR fans will be asked to choose between two NASCAR TV partners due to a scheduling conflict that should have been resolved long before this weekend.

Krista Voda is in Talladega for the NASCAR on Fox coverage, so Rick Allen will host the CWTS pre-race show from Kansas. Phil Parsons will join Allen while Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander will handle the pit road coverage.

The trucks have a very diverse field that should result in some interesting racing. The TV crew has a very basic set-up and fans should see the old-style racing coverage that emphassizes the racing and keeps things basic.

This post will serve to host your comments about both the Nationwide Series on ABC and the CWTS on SPEED. To add your TV-related comments, just click on the comments button below. This is a family-friendly website, please keep that in mind when posting.

Thanks for stopping by The Daly Planet.

ABC has decided to emulate FOX by truncating their coverage of NASCAR on the west coast in favour of children's programming. KOMO is showing "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody" from 11:30 to noon PT. My Detroit ABC HD broadcast starts at 11:30 PT.

NASCAR is playing second fiddle to a 2006 episode of a kid's show. FOX finally stopped the practice of pre-empting the pre-race show, but ABC is still doing it.

If anyone else has their ABC station cover the pre-race or delay the race, please leave a comment or email us. Thanks.

JD I'm watching a DVR of qualifying, did you catch Mike's promo of the NW race, something like here on Speed we are happy to promote racing not matter what channel it's on. Interesting don't you think

bevo said...

Not raining yet in Kansas but it looks pretty dark on the live feed on the IRL site.

@kbaskins and JD re: Countdown.

Did a double take when DVRing yesterday. I'm in San Jose and get the race on KGO-TV out of San Francisco. No Countdown. Power Rangers: Ranger Yellow, Part II At least it's a 2009 episode...ha!

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

So far so good here in Orlando... checked one guide and pre-race is on (bad for me, can't stand them)

Trucks are qualifying right now.

Unfortnately, I have commited to watching Rolex Sports Car at that time of NW. No Kyle/Carl/Dale Jr show for me.

Dot said...

ABC is showing paid programming right now (11am). Pre race scheduled @ 11:30.

Why do some stations screw their viewers out of the pre race?

Daly Planet Editor said...

So, no pre-race in San Diego or Seattle for NASCAR on ABC. any other West Coasters please let us know about this issue.

NRF, SPEED will promote anything and keeps the sport as the primary focus.

ESPN and Fox will not promote each other's races. Joy was being coy while he was on SPEED doing the qualifying.

When it happens on Sunday during the Fox race, I will gladly eat my words. Those words were that the situation between ESPN and Fox is simply digusting.

Congrats to Twitter favorite Max Papis for making his first Talladega Cup race. That should be interesting.

Here is a Twitter message from the NASCAR on Fox team:

Jeff Hammond here: I flew to 'Dega in C Edwards's plane. Great flight. Look out for my interview w/ him, up in the air, on Sunday’s prerace.

After last week's ESPN coverage, isn't that what we all want to see? More of Carl.

JD

Daly Planet Editor said...

OK, I stand corrected. This is KGO out of San Francisco.

Any San Diego or LA viewers out there?

JD

Vicky D said...

More Carl more of the time tomorrow, and I had a Mom sighting before qualifying. Good for a lot of the go or go homers starting near the front. Congrats to JPM for pole. Me glad Mayfield made the race too. Lots and lots of racing this weekend - the dvr will get a workout.

Anonymous said...

The countdown is on in Los Angeles, KABC.

bevo said...

Good Lord! Someone get the decaf for BD.

Dot said...

@ Bevo, My thoughts exactly. Whatever it is, JP needs some.

bevo said...

Song tally :
Sweet Home Alabama - 1

SonicAD said...

Pre-race keeps getting interrupted for weather updates on WZZM in Grand Rapids, MI, but we've got big storms going through.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Thanks for the LA update!

Daly Planet Editor said...

Carl, Kyle and crashing. Nice theme for ABC today. Ridiculous.

bevo said...

So much for not saying "the big one".

BTW I wish my rush hour was 190 mph, I could make it home in about 2 minutes. Although the exit might be tricky.

Dot said...

I hope Carl & Kyle disrupt the script again today.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Almost Bubba the Love Sponge time!

SonicAD said...

It's nice to see my local ABC station has got their equipment upgraded so they can do graphical overlays on HD now... it used to be they'd have to change to SD on the HD channel to put them up, but now the weather graphics are there but the race broadcast is still HD.

bevo said...

Is Dale Jr ever in a good mood?

Daly Planet Editor said...

He should be a GREAT in-car reporter!

Dot said...

Is the sponge on today? I thought it was tomorrow.

bevo said...

ABC better be doing that on tape delay

Dot said...

@ bevo, 2 times now.

bevo said...

Sweet Home Alabama - 2

bevo said...

Thanks Dot - posting at the same time :)

Dot said...

@ bevo, I will always think of you when I hear that song. You'll be on my mind all day today and tomorrow.

tiamatsrevenge said...

JD - I emailed you on Thursday about KOMO-tv and KATU-tv (both owned by Fisher Communications) ... and their disregard to the contract with Disney/ESPN Sports ...


KOMO-tv pre-empted "NASCAR Countdown" ... KATU-tv was tape delaying coverage of both the pre-race show and race by one hour ...

Dot said...

There he is.

Newracefan said...

I'm running way behind here which gives me an opportunity to use the FF button, based on what is gong on I anticipate catching up pretty quickly.

RE Brad I seem to remember that he really gets on the chip for plate races.

Super Power = Bewitched, not exactly what I would call a superpower but I wouldn't mind having it myself.

bevo said...

@Dot-

Don't get me started on Sweet Home :)

Daly Planet Editor said...

Yep. I emailed them. No response.

Vicky D said...

Why oh why do they have Jr. as the in-race reporter (he's just there to have fun!). Why not have a regular Nationwide guy. I wonder if ABC will show Kerry? Hope they have a race without anyone going over on their roof.

bevo said...

@nrf- The super power or Samantha???

Newracefan said...

Bevo, this lady would love to be able to snap my fingers (can't twitch the nose) and get what ever I needed ;)

tiamatsrevenge said...

KGO is an O&O station ... They of all people should've aired "NASCAR Countdown" ...

Dot said...

Oh great, interruptions for the NFL. Did I hear that correctly?

bevo said...

NFL draft starting at top of the hour, and yes it's a big deal for a lot of people.

IRL qualifying ready to start now too.

Dot said...

Here we go. Showing 4 wide then switch to in car. ARGHHHHH!!!!

bevo said...

Is FoxTrax working for anyone else?

Richard in N.C. said...

JD, I note from the picture above that it appears Andy P is following the race in progress on monitors, rather than out the window. I saw Mike Joy a few weeks ago on FOX or SPEED and I understood him to say that the FOX crew stands up to call the race so they can watch out the window, but apparently do have monitors in front of them also. IF the EESPN crew does call the race from what's fed to them on monitors, do you think this could contribute to the unique focus of their call?

Also, who gets the credit for inventing the irritating interview command "Talk about......."?

Sophia said...

Dot

You said it before me. NFL draft updates (rolls eyes)

I did not know that was Bubba on tv..was eating Jack's salsa and blue corn chips and missed it. :)

I do NOT want to see Carl tomorrow...sigh

so far I LOVE the camera work.

We so need this tomorrow. I LOVE Dega on my tv.

WITH GOOD CAMERA WORK~!~

Leave Jr alone...sigh...

dot I hope they don't OVER DO the in car cam...ZZZzzzzz

Daly Planet Editor said...

nice pictures and no in-car overuse. Dot must have scared them.

Anonymous said...

Anyone else having problems with the HD picture stuttering and getting blurry? I'm never sure whether its the broadcast, the local station, comcast, etc.

bevo said...

Kansas is really dragging out cleaning up the track from an oil down by the trucks, over 40 minutes now.

Could push back the Truck start time.

Dot said...

@ JD, that's my super power.

Dot said...

@ bevo, how do you know about the trucks? What are you watching?

Vicky D said...

Bevo, Nascar's Live Leaderboard is running.

@Dot-
IRL site is streaming the qualifying. Don't know who blew the engine but he went a full lap before he dropped down below the line.

Thanks Vicky D.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Much better than last week.

bevo said...

Got FoxTrax up and running.

Dot said...

Thanks bevo.

Lots of fans in the stands.

Jack from PA said...

I'm loving the wide shots of the draft... hopefully Doc doesn't botch the finish like he did to the fall Cup race last year!

bevo said...

IRL qualifying has started, looks like the Trucks will start about 30 minutes late right now.

Sophia said...

In that Aarons commercial where Reut is asleep the song sounds really close to George Winston's "Christmas Time is Here". odd..it can't be but for 7 or 8 notes it sounds like it.

Sophia said...

DH needs a promo about somebody getting naked to get people to watch. Wow.

I feel old

kbaskins said...

@ anon 3:31

HD is fine here on the left coast of Canada. I'm watching the Detroit ABC HD feed.

--KarenB

bevo said...

No problem with OTA HD in North Texas

Daly Planet Editor said...

Wonder if they will do a split screen for green flag pit stops?

bevo said...

Sweet Home - 3

Dot said...

Missing the pit again for JR?

Sophia said...

ok..as a fan of Jr's..does the boy need glasses? Misses his pits a few times this year.

:(

boyd said...

Seems like JR. needs glasses so he can find his pit

Vicky D said...

Who's fault is it missing his pit, driver or crew chief?

Sophia said...

Mikey penalty..rats....after being out of fuel...

Sophia said...

Go Morgan!

Anonymous said...

What the heck is Jr's problem???? Can't that kid see? And it seems the announcers missed it at first.

boyd said...

Nice pictures today, and the announcers aren't really pandering like they usually do.

bevo said...

Focus and concentration - seems like the older he gets the more trouble he has with it.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Jerry is starting to fade, need Brad D. up in the booth for some excitement.

Anonymous said...

Did one of the guys talk about getting naked for a TV show promo? That's real appropriate.

bevo said...

Agree. Good job so far. Camera work good and the booth is having a good day.

Bryan said...

This will not be popular. Maybe jr needs a drug test.

Vicky D said...

Debris caution coming up?

Sophia said...

???????????????????????????

no need for rumor

bevo said...

After listening to Arute the other day I really think JP's problem as the race wears on goes back to all the years of being in the pits and all of the chaos. He goes up to the booth and misses that constant stimulation.

bevo said...

I think that's enough debris for a caution.

Dot said...

@ Vicky D. new definition for debris, the 99 and 29. JR taking them to dinner. Really Joey? In the corner?

Sophia said...

who is in the 20?? IDIOT

was out of the room. &^%$#@!

Logano....sigh

Clint Bowyer...is talking about who?

Sophia said...

Geez those fonts on the drop down graph could be bigger for those of us over 30

:-)

need binoculars from recliner

Dot said...

@ dear Sophia, Mikey of course.

How come CC doesn't tell Bowyer who caused Mikey to hit him? We'll be hearing that radio all week.

Karen said...

Sophia, he was talking about Mikey.

Vicky D said...

The flagman had the yellow flat out already but Mikey & Clint grudgingly taking one for the Jr. team.

Anonymous said...

So, this is the new phantom debris? Mikey hitting anyone will now be the new automatic debris person.

Jr has 20/15 vision???? Yeah, right.

"I had a few cars in front of me". Like no other driver has a few cars in front of them??? Something is really wrong with that guy.

Dot said...

Right on Mikey.

bevo said...

Bliss overheated after his radiator got damaged by Edwards

Sophia said...

Good answer mike to a stupid question. re: Clint.

Typical ESPN

Anonymous said...

OH, Logano is the culprit who hit Mikey. I want a full blown throw down between Mikey and Bowyer

kbaskins said...

That was a really disgusting comment by Jamie trying to stir up trouble between Bowyer and Waltrip.

I hate that sort of crap. ESPN seems to excel at it.

--KarenB

Vicky D said...

And Reut is two laps down have we heard a reason if they have said I missed it.

Dot said...

@ VickyD, No, unless I missed it too.

Daly Planet Editor said...

and Jamie Little wonders why fans continue to hate her?

What kind of question was that to a guy who was just in a high-speed accident?

Anonymous said...

Jamie Little is pathetic and she continues to have a job. Is that wha they call equal opportunity? If so, I'm against it.

glenc1 said...

JD, I had the same thought...until I asked myself, how did she know what Clint said? I know they pick up all kinds of things, but I'm thinking Mr. Producer *told* her to ask just to create controversy. I could be wrong.

Sophia said...

@JD

AMEN to your Jamie Little comment. It's only 4:20 but I am having a glass of White Zin.

She ticked me off.

BSPN Snarkism at it's finest

Karen said...

Jamie Little had to have seen the replay by the time she got to Mikey. Her own question in my opinion.

Dot said...

@ dear Sophia, pour a glass for me.

Why no interview w/Clint? Give him a chance to apologize for running his mouth.

Newracefan said...

Dot Clint still on the track. Mikey did a nice job handling Jamie's typical ESPN question. So are we going to see this one all over ESPN this week I hope not.

Dot said...

Why doesn't KyB just ask the drivers to get off the track so he can win?

Dot said...

@ NRF, thanks.

Newracefan said...

Vicky, I'm behind here and just saw Doc talk about Reut like he was on the lead lap and the had to stop talking. DJ finally baled him out about Reut beig 2 laps down but no they have never said why.

The J said...

what did jamie ask? i missed it

glenc1 said...

Karen, you're probably right--I forgot how long it took before she got to Michael. Regardless, the question embarrassed everyone involved.

Sophia said...

@Dot.

You can have a glass. Not smart tho..house is 80. 88 outside..and don't want to use the A/C yet.

heat + Sophia= not good. I will add some ice to my wine :-)

Alcohol can make you feel warmer. I have three fans on in the great room.

I hope CB does get a blown tire. Big mouth. I decided I do not like him anymore..quick to blame...I know it's heat of the moment but he really has it out for Mikey.

JD I responded to your comment about JD on Twitter.

Meow Hiss
:-)

somebody made a comment about Sliced bread that made me LOL!

Daly Planet Editor said...

Have you noticed? Jerry has faded and is now just asking questions of Dale and Andy now.

Those two have taken over the play-by-play again. Just like the old days.

JD

Sophia said...

I meant Jamie Little

Sophia said...

Now Jr is hot.

Gymmie said...

Yes I agree about Jr. I thought the spotters counted them down? Hopefully he'll get that worked out. Embarrassing for how long he's been around...definite Rookie mistake. Yes I know others have missed their pits but it's been a once in a blue moon vs. every other race as it seems w/Jr.

Speaking of Brad JD--did they kill the "lets have Brad walk around the garage and see how much free food he can mooch from the teams" segment? I didn't know if they killed it or I just missed it being at the mercy of the feeds and when they decide to flip the channel.

I was also not surprised that Jamie asked such an idiotic question! UGH! Poor Mikey but he handled it well

Vicky D said...

Mikey didn't know who hit him, he just said that it was a black car. Someone should have told him before that stupid question by Jamie.

Anonymous said...

Now would that be a finish? Brad K, Jr and Kerry?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Wouldn't you love it if Kerry won?

Anonymous said...

ABC would jump all over that kind of finish

Matt said...

Unreal. I thought people wanted the drivers to show personality and not be on script all the time. What better time for a driver to show emotion then after someone accuses him of something he didn't cause? Why let it wait until the Monday night shows? It would be dereliction of duty NOT to ask Michael the question then and leave it for some other show on some other network. It's not like she shoved the microphone through the window of the car before he came out of it, or chased him into an ambulance. He's fine, Boyer's talking smack, I say get Michael's take on it as soon as possible.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Hey Gymmie,

That idea faded faster than the Servicemaster sponsored caution periods!

JD

darbar said...

I'd pay good money to see Kerry win the race.

Dot said...

Why do they tape up the front end when the car behind them is literally up their butt?

I would love to see any Odd Wad win over the CUP drivers.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Matt,

At least show the replay to the guy before you confront him with something he has not heard about something he has not seen.

I am sure we will be hearing about it on Monday, Mikey is with Chad and Steve at 8PM.

JD

Dot said...

Should've typed "in front of them".

Sophia said...

yea, I'd like to see Kerry win...poor guy is like "the invisible Earnhardt".

Be very sweet if he could win.:)

bevo said...

JD,

I heard Dan Patrick talking to Al Michaels last week about Madden. He said they meshed right away because he (Al) knew that the role of a play-by-play guy was to set up the analyst by asking him questions about the game. The audience can see the action and knows the players.

I imagine that whoever coached JP about going to the booth came from that background.

Vicky D said...

Do they have to make another pit stop before the finish?

darbar said...

Overheating is going to be a problem. Anyone know the temperature at the track?

Sophia said...

85 in dega according to weather.com

darbar said...

Can't Nascar see how much better the racing is in this car as opposed to the COT???

bevo said...

Raindrops starting to fall in Kansas

Dot said...

@ darbar, yes NASCAR can see the racing is better. But then they'd have to admit the COT is a total failure.

Dot said...

JR had to clean his glasses.

Anonymous said...

OHH, who's tire got away??

Sophia said...

My brother goes to Phoenix twice a year..says COT needs tweaked...wider tires or something.

racing is always BETTER in NW or truck series and most of us agree fro tv...but my brother has gone in person for years to several tracks.

darbar said...

One things for sure, Jr can handle the Nationwide car much better than the COT. For some reason, he just cannot drive that car and can't give his crew chief info on how to make it better.

bevo said...

Qualifying for IRL just ended. Graham Rahal has the pole. Franchitti and Castroneves 2 & 3 but times will probably be thrown out.

Running close to 50 minutes late so look for the Trucks to start late.

Sophia said...

@Dot

Don't you be bustin' on Jr!!! lol

(I still don't believe he has 20/15 vision..if he does he needs to learn focus or see if he has ADD)

.just saying..as somebody else said that's such a rookie mistake.

Can these guys WALK the pit stalls before their race to see where they pit? Seriously?

Dot said...

Will they tell us who lost the tire?

Vicky D said...

JD, I think today's telecast is better than last week's by a long shot. Lots of folks in the stands from the shot I just saw.

Sophia said...

@darbar

Haven't I heard Dale Sr was bad at explaining what was wrong with a car?

He could 'see' the air but not good at explaining to CC specificities of car issues.

MAtt said...

JD,

What's he need to see to answer a question about what Boyer said? Michael knew that he didn't cause it.

Sophia said...

Kerry E's tire I just read on Twitter

Daly Planet Editor said...

Did I miss it? Which team lost the tire and got the penalty?

Man, Jerry is out of gas! Can you hear the deep breaths and the sighs?

JD

Dot said...

@ VickyD, I agree about the better coverage. No Carl/KyB script shoved down our throats.

@ dear Sophia, good point. I would make sure before I got in the car where I am to pit.

Who lost the tire? Must've been an Odd Wad.

Sophia said...

oh that's helpful...a Gumbo of spotters talking???????????????????????????????????????/

Daly Planet Editor said...

OK, did that make sense to ANYONE?

Ken-Michigan said...

what the heck was that "spotter" stuff ??

AWFUL !!!

put that in the "dont do that again dept"

bevo said...

@Matt-

Because Bowyer didn't know how it happened when he said that to his crew. Doing that is like the little dweeb in grade school who runs around saying "Clint said" to someone else just to try to start a fight.

Sophia said...

If Punch mentions that "we haven't had the big one yet" one more time, I'm going to scream. It's almost like he's willing it to happen.

--KarenB

Newracefan said...

All caught up now. I agree spotter chatter STUPID. Now we know what we need Twitter for. It lets us know it was Kerry E tire, now don't you think that info should have come from the booth?

Vicky D said...

I like that spotter stuff. Did we ever hear if anyone got a penalty for the tire?

Karen said...

Sophia, who on Twitter said Kerry E.? I have some on NASCAR I'm following but not that one.

bevo said...

Note to Producer - the spotters are always shoulder to shoulder. That's how information gets exchanged between different drivers.

Sophia said...

@KarenB

I agree about the BIG ONE COMMENT.

Lame

The J said...

its cool if they have audio from 1 spotter, but not 20 at the same time

bevo said...

Sweet Home - 4

Sophia said...

I do not believe Kyle B is leading.

Is this Groundhog Day movie?

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

Finally decided to turn the race on MRN (a different radio station's online stream). But did not tune in to see Shruba-duba-ding-dong leading.

Ugh.

Gymmie said...

@Vicky D--I still remember the Winston back in 2K3 when Ryan was knocked out and he thought Tony(?) was to blame. Before he could say a word Dr. Dick jumped in to say that Tony was no where near his bumper so Ryan quickly changed his thoughts.

I'd LOVE to see Kerry win! I was so heartbroken a few years back at Richmond when Jeff Burton stole it from him the last few laps.

JD--LOL! That was a stupid segment, I'm glad they didn't continue with it. Of course they never should have done it in the first place. That was so embarrassing!

Vicky D said...

Thanks Twitter for penalty info. I also am tired of hearing JP mention "the big one" but we haven't heard about points so I guess it's even.

Daly Planet Editor said...

So, Kerry was in the top 5. He lost a tire and is now out of the big picture. ESPN never updated anything about a top five car penalized on pit road.

JD

Sophia said...

Wood_ brothers21 Heard it on MRN

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

I can't stand it when ANY network mentions the big one.

Dot said...

@ VickyD, No. But thanks to TDP we get that info.

@ hotaru, funny name for KyB.

bevo said...

Maybe if they put a polar bear on the grass across from Jr's pit he wouldn't miss it :)

Sophia said...

Shruba Duba Ding Dong


LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

Came up with that during my trip to South FL, glad y'all like it.

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

Woo, this is nuts!

bevo said...

Don't need in-car shots now, keep the wide shots going

Sophia said...

stop the EXCESS IN CAR CAMS!!!!

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

Abuse of in-car cameras... yet another reason not to watch.

Go Roush boys!!!!

The J said...

wow

SonicAD said...

So since the race started here there's been a radar box and an occasional crawl, but the only time my local station broke in was during a commercial. No complaints from me then!

Newracefan said...

Holy S...... Out of the car thank God

Dot said...

WOW. There's your big one JP.

Sophia said...

oMG!

Vicky D said...

Geesh Poor Matt! Doesn't need to be driving in the NW series.

darbar said...

OMG, bad wreck for Kenseth. Thank God he's out of the car. His wife is expecting in a few months.

Gymmie said...

@Karen--it was from wood_brothers21 who said it was via MRN that it was Kerry's tire

Daly Planet Editor said...

Nice cut to his wife before we knew he was OK. I am not going to forget that one.

Dot said...

A little teammate lovin'.

darbar said...

Freakin' David Regan

bevo said...

Don't put a freaking camera in the wife's face right after that!!!!

JACKASSES!

Vicky D said...

The roof flaps didn't come up for a long time. Lucky the car flipped on the wheels.

Newracefan said...

JD I cought that too, that's just low

darbar said...

JD, you're right on that one. No way should they cut to Katie before they knew if Matt was OK

The J said...

good thing it landed on its wheels, with that fire that started

bevo said...

Sorry for the word there JD.

Someone needs to be at least suspended for that

Gymmie said...

Poor MattMatt! Glad he's OK!

darbar said...

Wonder if the Cat in the Hat is going to take Mr Regan aside and have a good talking to

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

Looks like David barely touched him. Kyle was more invovled.

Sucks for Matt.

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

And it's spelled RAGAN.

Ken-Michigan said...

Once again - silence from the booth while the crash is in progress.

3 people and none of them can say anything ??

happened many times last year.

darbar said...

Thanks for the spell check

Dot said...

Shruba Duba has collateral damage. Hee hee. Script revisions going on right now.

The E in ESPN stands for Enquirer. How would they feel (sorry) if Matt wasn't OK?

Newracefan said...

Wonder if Matt will have something to say to ESPN about that one, some how I think he will be more than PO'd when he finds out. I can see it now the man wins a race and gives ESPN a 3 word interview, wouldn't blame him in the least.

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

A crash like that... so bad looking...

Sorry for being so defenive of DR just then, I get upset when people talk bad 'bout my guy.

Very pregnant???

Really Jamie?

Very pregnant...
