Friday TV: All Three NASCAR Series On The Air
Kyle Busch and his girlfriend recently took in a Kathy Griffin performance on their days off, but now it is back to work for drivers in all three of NASCAR's top series.
Steve Byrnes steps-in and takes over the Mike Joy position hosting Sprint Cup Series practice as SPEED starts Friday off at noon ET from Pocono. Byrnes gets this role throughout the TNT portion of the Sprint Cup Series schedule.
After thirty minutes of news and interviews hosted by John Roberts at 3PM, NASCAR Live gives way to Sprint Cup qualifying. Byrnes hosts again with Larry McReynolds and Jeff Hammond in the booth. Lindsay Czarniak is back on pit road reporting for this session with Marty Snider.
Jerry Punch leads ESPN2 through one hour of Nationwide Series practice from Nashville, TN at 6PM. Dale Jarrett is off this week, so Rusty Wallace will be alongside of Punch and Andy Petree.
Live action returns at 8:30PM with the Camping World Trucks from the Texas Motor Speedway on SPEED. TDP will have a live blog of that race.
