Live Blogging The Camping World Trucks From Charlotte
Friday night the Camping World Truck Series will be putting on a show at the Lowe's Motor Speedway. Coverage starts at 7:30PM with Krista Voda and the pre-race show.
Rick Allen takes over at 8PM to call the action with Phil Parsons and Michael Waltrip alongside. Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander will be reporting from pit road.
This field has Cup regulars, truck series regulars and plenty of one-timers with nothing to lose. Other than Daytona, this may be the biggest stage for the truck series drivers with the top owners in the sport all in attendance.
SPEED has perfected the old-school approach to this sport, from the solo anchor in the pre-race to only two pit reporters. The pictures show the racing and the commentary talks about the action the TV viewers are actually watching.
Michael Waltrip needs to make sure and play his role in this coverage, hopefully Rick Allen will be able to keep Waltrip's enthusiasm in check. This trio has come a long way from their first season together and has been working well this year.
Great pictures and sound come from this track at night with the Musco lighting that features no infield light poles to obstruct the view of the fans or the TV viewers.
