Live Blogging The Sprint Cup Series Race From Richmond On Fox


The umbrellas came out around 5:30PM just as the track was beginning to dry from an earlier shower. The weather radar is showing a group of storms over Richmond, but there is a break in the weather after that line.

The NASCAR on Fox team may be facing a very long night of racing and possibly a delay in the event until Monday.

Chris Myers is up first from the Hollywood Hotel at 7PM. He will be joined by Darrell Waltrip and Jeff Hammond. Look for Talladega aftermath, weather forecasts and a review of the Kyle vs. Junior scenario from last season.

Waltrip moves up and joins Mike Joy and Larry McReynolds if and when the race begins. Joy did monster duty for SPEED on Friday and has to be commended for his performance.

Luckily, Fox has the best crew of pit reporters on TV and hopefully access to the drivers will continue to be available. Slightly before 6PM, NASCAR moved all the cars from the grid to the garage area and put them under cover.

This post will serve to host your comments about the NASCAR on Fox telecast of the Sprint Cup Series on Fox. To add your TV-related comment, just click on the comments button below. This is a family-friendly website, please keep that in mind when posting.

Thanks for taking some time out of your life to stop by The Daly Planet.

I just saw Delana Tweeted rain started a big ago.

Hmm...could be long night.

Charlie said...

According to Weather.com
7pm - Cloudy
8pm - Showers
9pm - Cloudy
10pm - Cloudy
11pm - Cloudy
12am - Showers
from then on showers all Sunday.

This is just what that site said, who knows.

Dot said...

Of course they'll have the long pre race show instead of moving up the start time. Aren't most of the fans there by now anyway? If they're not, they'd miss the GF anyway.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Fox actually has a baseball game going on that is only in the 7th inning.

The rain has stopped, but the track is wet and it will take a while to dry.

JD

Sophia said...

Charlie, it was raining 30 minutes ago or so according to Delana Harvick..it's now 6.23...can't always trust the Doppler :)

Dot,
I do wish they would move the race to the start of the Fox pre-race!

I need to decide when to wash my hair. ha.

Newracefan said...

Dot long prerace not a problem, it's raining there now. I fear a rain delay is in our future but I hope they get the race in I'm not home tomorrow and I hear the weather is suppose to be worse.

Soph just wanted to let you know it's all your fault, I'm sitting here eating chocolate chip cookies :)

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

I did look at the forecast myself... tomorrow looks even worse than tonight. I use Yahoo Weather for my info.

Guess we'll play it by ear tonight with the broadcasts.

Dot said...

@Nrf, Rain, no problem. In the past with rain imminent sometime after the GF, they may start the race 10 mins sooner. If they would just cut off the prerace like by oh, 30 mins we could see more racing. That's what I meant.

JD, if the game runs long, and the track is dry, what then? Who gets booted?

Dot said...

Just saw score 5-5, in the 8th.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Not going to happen tonight, but NASCAR's TV contract gaurantees live coverage from green flag to green flag.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Wonder if RaceDay gets bonus time?

Sophia said...

NewRaceFan
are they good chocolate cookies? I use all real butter in mine. :-)If there is a rain delay I am for sure going to mix up the cookie dough..still need to make choc chip cookies for neighbor that cut the grass. Today my room mate re-lit their pilot light on hot water heater for them, so it's all good.

Anybody surprised Spencer said Dega is JUST fine the way it is and drivers need to get over it.
?? Wow...not cutting the track any slack....sigh.
Granted had Edwards not been hit by another car he would've never gone into the fence...

Then again, didn't martin truex or somebody drive on the SIDE of his car against the fence at a smaller track a couple years ago? So weird things DO happen.

Like Kenny Schrader says, you put on a firesuit, slippers over your shoes, HANS device, helmet and fireproof gloves...something bad might happen!! but I digress (I REALLY miss him on Monday nights!)

Newracefan said...

JD unfortunately I think we'll just get more prerace on Fox :(

Sophia said...

I meant to say Edwards not hit by a SECOND car would not have gone so airborne.

Newracefan said...

Soph they taste pretty good to me but only 1/2 real butter

Newracefan said...

Hermie too funny with the Bud sign and JR's pit

bevo said...

We're having some bad weather in North Texas. Local Fox is covering it right now and the collapse of the Cowboys practice facility. 10 injuries right now. Looks like this is going to go on for a few more hours so I doubt there will be much race coverage if they get started tonight.

Daly Planet Editor said...

nrf, there is a live baseball game on Fox that is tied!

Newracefan said...

OK JD less pre race but not more RaceDay, guess I should order dinner.

Sophia said...

NRFan, I have done the half butter half Crisco, too. That's good..depending on my mood.

Bevo I read about the collapse on twitter...hope folks will be ok.

Mother nature really taking on the country tonight.

JD

Game here is 9th inning, 9 to 7, cleve and detroit

Anonymous said...

5 injured, 1 critical at the Cowboys practice facility.

Dot said...

Let the media tour begin.

Seriously, I hope everyone will be fine.

Daly Planet Editor said...

OK, so let's make sure and report in at 7PM as to what Fox stations still have their baseball games in progress and which markets will hit NASCAR on time.

Should be interesting.

JD

Dot said...

Stay on SPEED.

WOW, NASCAR on FOX coverage will be starting on SPEED!!

Fox's coverage is on Speed. Raceday just said so.

Woah... that's weird.

Fox in Dallas is sticking with the weather, but they say they will cover the green flag.

FOX prerace on SPEED

Anonymous said...

Game tied 5-5 on FOX5 KSWB San Diego.

Dot said...

Was there a crawl on FOX to tune to SPEED?

alex said...

FOX Atlanta is staying with Braves-Astros, race on SPEED until the game is over.

Newracefan said...

Dam JD I guess I'm staying on Speed because obviously outside Philly I have Baseball. This is a very cool deal by Speed to show the Fox prerace. Color me surprised

Geeze said...

The Fox Broadcast is being shown on Speed right now.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Keep the info coming, this is a big change in strategy.

Fox finally using SPEED as a live cable partner!

Newracefan said...

JD magic eight ball or inside info?

darbar said...

Fox in Milwaukee sticking with ballgame.

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

I don't think there was a crawl... my dad would've changed to Speed.

Ha... this is something new.

bevo said...

Fox Fort Worth/Dallas still with weather/Cowboys situation

Newracefan said...

Only issue DVR users or those without Speed

Anonymous said...

I don't think the FOX coverage on SPEED can continue past 8 EST. Motorcycle racing is coming up.

Anonymous said...

NYC obviously still has the Mets/Philly 5-5 game...

Sophia said...

Fox on SPEED here...

and as 7:04 NASCAR on Fox supposed to be on next after baseball promos commercials..sigh.

Anonymous said...

No mention of SPEED from the local Fox affiliate in Dallas.

Dot said...

@ Alex, what inning are they in?

I;m confused. PHI/NYM are in OT on FOX. Are all the games running late?

Anonymous said...

Rain delay on Fox = Digger. :(

alex said...

Not sure if they are showing different games in different markets, but the Braves game is still in the 6th Inning so Atlanta may not shift the race from FOX for quite a while.

Normally I wouldn't care, but due to Crapcast, I have FOX HD but not SPEED HD.

jane said...

In Los Angeles: Mets and Phillies tied at the top of the 10th. Race is starting on Speed, Fox will have the race after baseball. There was at least one chime with an on-screen indicator that the race is on Speed.
Joe Buck said to "check the local channels" for Speed. Well, I don't pay for a cable package that carries Speed, so I guess I'm sticking to Fox

darbar said...

Hot Pass Drivers: Harvick, Burton, Earnhardt, Edwards

Anonymous said...

A couple FOX stations are beginning to join the NASCAR coverage. ie Tigers/Indians.

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

MRN thinks we may be close to being on time.

Sophia said...

ok as of 7:06 Cincinnati Fox channel on the air with NASCAR

WARNING DIGGER CARTOON COMING UP. I will wash my hair then!

Daly Planet Editor said...

This is certainly an interesting day in NASCAR TV history.

SPEED handled rain-delayed races for ESPN and Fox before on Mondays, but this is going to be interesting.

The pre-race is being simulast on the Fox stations that have finished baseball and also on the SPEED cable network.

Probably going to continue the simulcast until all the major markets have switched over to NASCAR.

This is fun to watch unfold.

Newracefan said...

Is Hammonds shirt really turquoise? Or is it because I'm watching a HD shirt on a SD channel? Goes well with the tie but interesting choice

glenc1 said...

upstate NY is sticking with baseball...but it's the Mets, no way would they move from there (nor should they.)

Waldo said...

Grr! My sorry cable provider (charter) doesn't offer Speed HD.

Dot said...

@ Alex & Jane, thanks.

Alex, so when would you get to see the race? Let's pretend it wasn't raining. Would your baseball game move to a different channel?

SonicAD said...

Wasn't paying attention, but checked my DVR recording and it's switched over to NASCAR after about 5 minutes past the hour.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Pleas keep telling us when your Fox station changes to NASCAR and what market you are in.

bevo said...

Fox DFW anchor keeps repeating they will go to the race when it starts :)

Newracefan said...

JD I have a question regarding commercials, will it be all the ones that should have been on Fox? If so what about locals and what about the ones that were suppose to be on Speed?

Anonymous said...

Fox WNYW obviously has the Mets game

Waldo said...

Digger makes me want to puke!

Anonymous said...

Mets - Phillies are in extra innings with the Joe Buck #1 crew on Fox, this rain is doing Fox a favor, for now.

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

Ack... Digger alert! :(

Dot said...

Is this a rerun of Digger?

David said...

FOX just informed viewers pre-race is on SPEED

alex said...

Man, that gopher really has trouble with the ladies.

NorCalFan said...

Greetings from Sacramento. Baseball game still on Fox, tied 5-5 bottom of the 10th. Back to Speed HD.

Newracefan said...

Another Digger rerun, time to see what's on Fox. UM that would be baseball.

Bill H said...

I am sure fox could put a commercial or three on in place of this stupid cartoon

Anonymous said...

showed the final score of the game about seven minutes ago on speed... as of now, game still tied 5-5 on fox affiliate WGHP in winston-salem/greensboro/high point...

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

Boy, can't wait 'till Fox's run is over. No more Goophy Gopher for a while.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Got to give Fox a lot of credit. This is a good solution that we have been preaching for two years now.

Use SPEED when there is a NASCAR problem and let the fans see what is going on.

Sorry for the small group that does not have SPEED, the network is the only Fox option.

Remember, they had to use FX Network last season in that baseball disaster?

Anonymous said...

I am remembering a terrible mess involving Fox, FX, a Nascar race and a Yankees-Red Sox game in which people lost both the green flag of the race and the final out of the ballgame

alex said...

@Dot,

In ATL there are a couple local stations that show the games (2 owned by FOX, the 3rd owned by Turner). I would guess it should move to one of the others, which are currently showing poker.

Braves are down 4-1, just started the 7th inning. If it ends quickly, that puts it near 8:00 for the switch.... And That's being optimistic.

Dot said...

Waaay OT. What is that HK on the PHI uniforms? Jus checking the score.

bevo said...

Fox DFW anchor just told viewers who want to see pre-race to switch to Speed

jane said...

This just happened on Fox: some joke about a baseball player and the nascar race, Joe Buck had to say, the race is on, on Speed channel.

Glenn said...

Fox in ATL did put up a notice the pre race is on Speed.
If the green flag does fly at 7:43 as scheduled there's no way the Atl game will be over. Top of the 7th and visitor is winning.

Waldo said...

Top of the 7th Braves/Astros. I want to say the average inning lasts 20ish minutes. If that's the case we're looking at 8:00 before we get the HD signal for the Atlanta market

The Track Girl said...

lol is Kyle talking with his mouth full of Combos?

Daly Planet Editor said...

The current pre-race scripted show is going to be done around 7:30PM.

Should be interesting to see what happens after that...

bevo said...

Poor guy must be getting hammered about the race :) They just showed a second box to show everyone that Fox is still showing a baseball game

Dot said...

@ Alex, forgot to thank you for the response :)

NorCalFan said...

Baseball announcers on Fox informed NASCAR viewers to tune in to SPEED TV for coverage.

Daly Planet Editor said...

The fact that the Fox TV stations are not running a crawl about NASCAR being on SPEED leads me to believe that this was a bit of a last-minute decision.

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

I actually was hoping for a longer delay... but that's just me.

Anonymous said...

FOX's slogan is "Animation Domination" due to The Simpsons and all the other cartoons they've developed. Now it's Digger in the groove.

I, for one, have just decided to boycott their pre-race shows from now on. Cartoons are not my forte'.

Wonder what the Chairman of the Board at FOX looks like? I'd like to picture a distinguished gentleman with a touch of class. Instead, I keep picturing Homer....

kbaskins said...

FOX Seattle showing racing. They showed the end of the ball game, but that was on the last out.

FOX Detroit (which I receive with my HD package) is still showing a ball game. It's in the 10th.

SPEED showing the pre-race show.

--KarenB

midasmicah said...

To haus20. Common sense would and should dictate starting the race a little early. As far as espu goes (neither is the lesser of two evils)as long as they don't come up with some idiotic animated cartoon, I'll be somewhat mullified. I just want a network that shows the whole field, not just the top 10.

Daly Planet Editor said...

from Jenna Fryer (AP) on Twitter:

"Only like 3 more races until Digger goes into his hole for the rest of the season."

Too funny!

Colleen said...

Dot - it's in tribute to their announcer Harry Kalas who passed away a couple of weeks ago.

Anonymous said...

Guess they know the people in Seattle are not interested in baseball unless it's the Mariners. We've got the pre-race show!

Dot said...

@ Anon 7:21, too funny.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Big switch coming, Mets game is over. They lost.

bevo said...

Still like my idea of making the Martinsville hot dogs out of gophers.

Dot said...

@ Colleen, thanks. I had a feeling it was a tribute to someone.

jane said...

In Los Angeles: Phillies just won the game, Joe Buck said wrap-up will happen after commercials.

Anonymous said...

Dot - HK is for Harry Kalas, voice of the Phillies, who recently passed away.

Game over, race hasn't started yet and I missed Digger.....not all that bad! ;-)

Dot said...

Are they going to dissect the game?

Daly Planet Editor said...

If you have PIP on your TV, you should be able to see the same thing on Fox and SPEED if your regional baseball game is over.

Should be interesting to see how they handle the big switch of SPEED back to regular programming.

David said...

wow command in 11 minutes...

Dot said...

Nope. :0

jane said...

A very short wrap-up, then a nascar commercial for Richmond. Now more commercials.

Charlie said...

Fox WMQF out of Marquette, Michigan had the Detroit baseball game on but it ended just after 7 and now has the pre-race show on.
Fox WLUK out of Green Bay, Wisconsin has the New York Phli game on and it has now just ended and will be going to Nascar after the break. 7:26pm

Anonymous said...

Thanks, Dot! I have to be careful how I word things - don't want JD to delete me...

Even though I've got the pre-race show, my blood pressure is up, my nerves are screaming, and the race hasn't even started yet!

By the way, all the hotel people are talking over each other - guess they see something funny in what they're saying. Too bad their audience doesn't understand a word of it...

Labbie said...

They're doing the wrap up of the Mets-Phillies game now in Albuquerque, should switch to the pre-race soon.

Daly Planet Editor said...

The fact that NASCAR is getting the track dry and things back on time is amazing.

How many Fox and local station promos can one viewer stand?

alex said...

Nice tribute to DP.

Buschseries61 said...

Labbie said...

Albuquerque came back (finally) with an update from Meyers, then went back to commercials.

Wow, Fox has finally learned to do something that ESPN has known to do for years. Its about time.

Though, Fox should have NASCAR and the pre-race show in a protected timeslot. They know baseball can go long.

Buschseries61 said...

....well WNYW just went back to commercials after 15 seconds of Chris Myers. Good grief!

Dot said...

Re: Labbie's comment. FOX in LV has switched to the prerace with a bunch of commls.

How is it some FOX stations show different things? BTW, I still watching commls.

jane said...

In Los Angeles: got a little nascar blurb att 4:30pm local time, after a smattering of Canada and Fox commercials. Then more commercials. I guess we won't actually get the race until the on-track stuff?

bevo said...

Nice to see them remember Poole

Anonymous said...

KSWB FOX5 dropped into Chris M mid sentence to say racing is coming up. Only problem is the invocation ceremonies are on now, FOX apparently doesnt want to drop in the middle of the ceremonies so back to commercials in San Diego.

red said...

wow: invocation and already 112 comments! i'll catch up to you all in a few minutes.
and kudos to have the marine drum and bugle core do the national anthem!
race hard, be safe and have fun, guys!

Robyn said...

Race coverage JUST began in DC. They were in commercial at least through the moment of silence

bevo said...

Fox DFW just switched to the race mid-anthem.

Buschseries61 said...

I see the National Anthum on Speed and a commercial on New York City on Fox. Urghh...

Anonymous said...

Starting coverage right during the middle of the anthem??!??

Daly Planet Editor said...

fox has several MLB games of regional interest running at the same time.

Just like different NFL games for different markets.

We are just trying to keep track of who has joined the race.

Here in Florida, we just joined for the flyover.

We've still got commercials on WOFL out of Orlando.

Sheesh.

After all that, KSWB FOX5 San Diego, came in right in the middle of the Nation anthem anyway...kind of odd... Well at least NASCAR coverage is back on now.

Since I missed pre-race in NYC (and dont have speed), what did they do as a tribute to DP?

Fox 29 Philly cut in about halfway through the anthem

The Track Girl said...

Nice of Speed to keep tuned in during opening ceremonies. Beautiful Anthem.

also. Did Jimmy's hair get attacked by birds!? (made me snicker during the invocation, and then made me feel bad for snickering..)

Dot said...

At least 8 mins of commls. Are they playing them now since more likely than not the race will end early? If so, I hope it bites them in the butt and we get to see the race comml free at the end.

Nat'l Anthem? I'm still watching commls.

Fox Nashville joined just in time for "Home of the brave." Busted out of a local commercial.

haus20 said...

Hi guys - i was wondering where everyone was...I was on the ESPN "pieces" blog. That would explain why there was only 30 comments.

Daly Planet Editor said...

They will only drop the SPEED simulcast when all the baseball ends.

Anyone still have baseball?

Mark said...

FOX WRLH Richmond completely missed the anthem(and the race is just outside of Richmond)

Newracefan said...

Track Girl Hat hair and a breeze. Most importantly didn't see the wife, who would have handled it.

Excellent tribute to David Poole, too bad not everyone could see it. They should show it again IF we have rain issues

David said...

I think the atlanta game is running long

alex said...

JD,
Are all of the local affiliates required to show the green flag? If that's the case, than FOX had better switch baseball to a local cable station.

Gymmie said...

YAY Russ!

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

You think the local affiliate would.

Our affiliate goes as far as having their own local pre-show whenever Daytona rolls around.

haus20 said...

If only the Poole tribute was as long as the Madden one...

alex said...

The Braves game was held back by a long rain delay, so they're still in the 8th Inning. FOX still has baseball on in Atlanta.

Waldo said...

Bottom of the 8th for the atl market

Richie said...

I really thought the Poole tribute was just right, there have been other journalist that Nascar held moments of silence for and the networks barely acknowledged them. The Madden tribute was to one of foxes own. Fox did good this time!

Dot said...

@ haus20/aka Rhonda, right on. I didn't see it. Commls were on.

David said...

Really hate that my SIRIUS went kaput on me =(

bozo...it's really none of our business, but Rusty's wife never came to the races (for reasons you can read anywhere on the web.) Carl's wife is a doctor; might now be easy for her to get away...orthopedics I think it is. Every couple makes its own decisions for their own reasons.

Now *that* was an anthem...but then, I love a good D&B corps...

Congratulations to the Smith family, nice to hear some good news.

Good job by Fox handling this situation.

rumor is they might start under yellow. anyone hearing anything about that from any source?

TexasRaceLady said...

I sure wish the weather would clear in Dallas --- that's my local FOX --

The weather is playing hob with the DirecTV signal. It keeps pixelating!

Daly Planet Editor said...

Anon,

We are all going to find that out together in a couple of minutes.

Some journalists complaining NASCAR put the tracks on the cars for TV.

Jet dryers are still out. They have to make a decision shortly, start it under yellow or send them to pit road.

Anonymous said...

no reason to start under yellow today, track is drying fast.

haus20 said...

Are there really any race fans who haven't seen the Edwards wreck?

alex said...

FOX Atlanta will the green. Braves-Astros. just started the top of the 9th Inning. The Braves are losing, and they still have to bat in the 2nd half of the inning. Very slim chance it all ends by 8.

jane said...

ugh. how about telling us what's happening on the track rather than the "flashback?"

Sophia said...

WOW. lots of comments to catch up

The piece on Poole choked me up showing his empty seat. :(

Then nice shot of the sky

alex said...

My previous comment got cut off. I wanted to say that Atlanta will see the green flag on SPEED. Fox is skipping it because baseball isn't over.

Newracefan said...

Wouldn't all the cars on the track help dry it too? Seems to be it would have been easier for TV to wait since they were having BB issues

Anonymous said...

ok if it starts under yellow, is that considered the starting 'green flag'?? when would the other FOX stations be required to switch over then? the real green flag as in the first laps of up to speed racing? or is it just when the laps begin to count?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Anon, you are wearing the tires and gas. NASCAR has to start it under yellow or send them to pit road.

They have asked Gordon if the track is ready. NASCAR is making the cars run single file to dry the high line.

Like to be on the NASCAR radio right now....

red said...

agreed haus20 about the 'dega wreck. we're in richmond now: surely there were a FEW exciting finishes they should ahve used as flashback moments?

i spent time and many, many hand gestures last night explaining the 'dega wreck to folks while sitting out for front porch friday. lots of discussion about how the 99 ended up airborne -- more than the catch fence holding.

Dot said...

@ haus20, even non race fans? Is there a count on how many times this has been shown this week?

bevo said...

TRL-

My DirecTV signal for DFW Fox is fine, the OTA signal is having problems though

Vicky D said...

Just got back from the horse track and found the race has changed channels and drying the track. Good timing.

alex said...

Did I hear them say that those caution laps wouldn't count? The crawl says 1 of 400... Maybe I just didn't hear right.

Anonymous said...

ok....has it started? why is FOX showing 'lap one of 400'??

Mike said...

Either they're waiting for the track to dry, or they're waiting for Houston-Atlanta to get over with. Or it's a combination of the 2 things.

FOX has a crawl on the bottom "Nascar coverage from Richmond available on SPEED". The Astros have a couple baserunners on, so it should be interesting to see if SPEED cuts the cup race for AMA racing.
