Live Blogging The Sprint Cup Series Race From Pocono On TNT


There were over five hours of pre-race programming on ESPN2, SPEED and TNT. Now, it is time to race at Pocono. Bill Weber, Kyle Petty and Wally Dallenbach take center stage for the next six races.

TNT is throwing a ton or resources at these broadcasts. In addition to Larry McReynolds holding court in the infield with his trendy stage and cutway car, TNT is once again offering RaceBuddy.

This season, the Internet application will have new features. They include PRN's Jim Noble as a designated online reporter, embedded messaging from sources like Twitter and text messages directly to RaceBuddy users from pit road about the teams.

On the TV side, ESPN's original NASCAR Director Mike Wells returns this season for all six races. His directing style is evident right from the start of the first race. Wells uses wideshots and follows the best racing on the track regardless of where it is happening.

Petty has changed the tone of these telecasts with his good sense of humor and his ability to poke fun at himself. Down on pit road, local TV station sports reporter Lindsay Czarniak surfaces for these six races with her enthusiasm and nose for news. Veterans Ralph Sheheen, Marty Snider and Matt Yocum round-out the pit reporter corps.

Weber has come a very long way since his NBC days and seemed to gel with Petty right from the start. He hosts a thirty minute pre-race show and then calls the race in his new role. Since fans have not seen him on NASCAR TV since last season, Weber is the wild card in this mix.

This post will serve to host your comments about the TNT coverage of the Sprint Cup Series race from Pocono. To add your TV-related opinion, 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 weekend to stop by The Daly Planet.

Let a new year of critiquing begin - weber whats up with the baby powder blue suit? Why does tnt feel they need a "song" and have to tell us it is a new one for this year, did they think we was expecting Hinder?

Andrew said...

I think they missed something in that explanation - the waved-around cars. They line up behind the penalty cars, right?

Jojaye said...

Mike Helton has props! too cute

Bill H said...

I have heard it explained a few different ways and what I get out of it is, caution comes out, lead lap cars pit, if lapped down cars stay out they will be waved around and get one of their laps back, as long as they don't pit. Does anyone else read it that way?

SrRaceFan said...

I worry about things they "figure out on the fly"...

Bill H said...

Did they give helton a short seat?

Dot said...

Are the last 20 laps still single file?

Andrew said...

@BillH - I think that's what they mean.

@Dot - Nope.

Dot said...

Who's counting the Closer commls?

bevo said...

Per Robin Pemberton -

“When the caution comes out, the field will be frozen as it is today. The free-pass car will be identified as it is today and it will be the same format. As the cars are gathered behind the pace car, the pit road is opened for leaders, the second time by it will be open for the lap-down cars, and that is how it is today. And when we come to the one [lap]-to-go [until the green drops], the cars that have elected not to pit that are lap-down cars that will be in front of the lead-lap cars that have pitted, will be waved around to join the field at the tail end. The lineup will be on the double-file restart, lead-lap cars to the front, lap-down cars, … then it will be the free-pass car, then it will be the cars that have been waved around and then it will be the penalty cars."

Bill H said...

@dot - I am mentally

Dot said...

I still think there will be unintended consequences.

@ Bill H, get a piece of paper, you'll need it.

Sophia said...

I love the Closer but dread commercials...sigh.

Helton not asked about guitar incident. Script does not contain that scene.

I am still confused over rules for new restart.

Music a little rocky for me.

I more concerned about camera work.

TNT saying they will address Kyle's incident later. I wanna hear Petty's take.

Bill H said...

Sound seems a little muffled on TNT versus the others or is it just me?

Verification: winke (cute)

Jojaye said...

SrRaceFan said...

I worry about things they "figure out on the fly"
--
is gonna be like "actions detrimental"...?

@BillH - I think so Mike Helton is not a short guy. He looked like a lil kid at the table LOL

Andrew said...

I get the feeling that Kyle's actions will be dealt with in Countdown instead of this show.

SrRaceFan said...

jojaye, kind of like that Rule Book they keep referring to... LOL

bevo said...

@Bill H- muffled for me too, DirecTV SD.

Anonymous said...

How come its ok for FOX to have the "lets go racing boys" music, Meyers we kid cause we care comments and those stupid intros into commercials the drivers did but when ESPN and TNT have rock music its a bad thing.

Guess it would be ok if they played "Sweet Home Alabama". maybe for Talladega but alas TNT doesnt do that race.

Dot said...

Great interview with Dave Marcis. I'm glad I got to see him race in the 90s.

Andrew said...

I've gotta say, this is a much more serious pre-race than we saw on FOX all year. It feels like actual journalism and reporting, not wacky antics. Larry Mac is criminally underused, though, he should be in the booth during the race.

Anonymous said...

seems that Helton had topics that couldnt be touched both on RD and TNT - um what do they call this hour show again?

1- Busch and guitar
2 - Mayfield lawsuit.

others?

Anonymous said...

So the new rules for double file restarts also changes the rules for the trapping cars on the tail end of the lead lap situation?

That actually changes race conditions and pit stop strategy far more than the double file restarts. The whole pitting out of sequence to get fuel on a caution flag to trap the good cars a lap down process will change.

Bill H said...

@anon - think the music bumpers on any network are stupid. If there was a nascar theme of song all the networks used it would be fine, but just playing music cause someone is trying to sell an album is wrong

Jojaye said...

Anon 1252 - Why if you are so put off by all/any comments are you here? Just wondering...

Labbie said...

RaceBuddy is already up and working.

Andrew said...

Anyone else wonder what Dave Marcis would have said about SDDD's antics? :D

Daly Planet Editor said...

This pre-race has the kind of feeling that AB has on some NASCAR Countdown shows.

You guys have RaceBuddy going?

Dot said...

RIGHT ON Kyle P.

Anonymous said...

Thank you, Kyle Petty!! Your comments about the guitar bit and Busch NOT being a rock star are spot-on.

Anonymous said...

I'm sure Larry Mac's FOX contract prevents him from working in the booth for another network. I think that's why he is used this way by TNT.

"That's personality right there."

I think Mark Fein has been watching Bestwick in the off-season.

Anon, Larry works in the booth all season long for SPEED and did so this weekend.

Bill H said...

Figured out the sound issue on TNT - forgot they turn down sounf of broadcast so you hear commercials blaring at ya

RaceBuddy is nothing short of incredible already. Online reporter just kicked in.

Petty is right.

Shrub didn't think about what he was doing.

He seems to have a problem thinking before he does anything.

What's the URL for RaceBuddy?

Anonymous said...

SPEED is owned by FOX so Larry MAc working for SPEED doesnt count.

I agree - Believe he is prohibited from working booth for other then FOX and SPEED

sorry JD

Martin Vincent said...

@JD - Speed and Fox are one and the same, so Mike, Larry and Darrell would be allowed to work the booth on Speed. Maybe their contract prohibits it on non-Fox-owned networks.

Anonymous said...

TNT apparently needs some working audio level meters.

Andrew said...

@JD - Well, that might have something to do with Speed being owned by News Corp.

Race Buddy is working beautiful on Firefox here. No problems, fired right up. Sound is good. Clear picture.

I wish TNT had rest of season just for RB & pre race show w/KylePetty

Daly Planet Editor said...

Let me help you with that one. TNT told me they wanted him at the cutaway car for demos.

Anonymous said...

Also, it would be good if Marc stopped telling us how good the TNT people are and how hard they work.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Boy, Lindsay just stepped right in and took right off this season.

Dot said...

Isn't there a scanner feature on RB?

bevo said...

Anybody else see the irony of running a commercial about peeing during race coverage?

Isn't that what most men do during commercials?

Andrew said...

@JD - Ok, that makes sense. He's definitely better than Hammond or Brewer with the cutaway cars.

Newracefan said...

I'm behind again but I have realized that I need a bigger laptop screen for all this stuff. Racebuddy is up and going. The test for TNT is if I am going to watch the TV or Racebuddy hopefully it's the TV with RB for commercials.

David said...

Hendricks...why Kyle?

Mark Fein sounds kind of thick-tongued to me

why is it so hard to find the "Live" TNT RaceBuddy page?

@ bevo, at least men get up off the couch, I hope.

Bill H said...

TNT seems to be taking their promo commercials and streatching them to get wide screen - everyone looks short and blocky. the rest of the broadcast and other commercials are fine

Lindsay does a lot of great pre-produced features throughout the year on NBC 4 in D.C. Its a good thing its a talent TNT recognizes.

Guys, just go to NASCAR.com for RaceBuddy. Click on the logo, it is free.

Daly Planet Editor said...

What a technology crunch. Kyle is Twittering during his live show and sending pics. RaceBuddy is online and texting directly to fans. Sites like this have their chats going.

All for one sport.

red said...

so, will the nascar.com leaderboard remain up right beneath the racebuddy screens once the race starts? it's be great to be able to not have to open another screen to keep an eye on lap times.

stricklinfan82 said...

Contrasting Fox and TNT's pre-race shows:

Featured Element:

Fox: Digger & Friends
TNT: Pride of NASCAR

Studio Guests During the Year:

Fox: Michael Strahan and a box full of Subway junk to decorate the set & the singer that made the Digger Theme Song

TNT: Mike Helton

Letting the Viewers Be Heard:

Fox: "What does a blue flag mean?"

TNT: "What are your guys' opinions on what Kyle Busch did last night?"


So far give me TNT every day of the week... and twice on Sunday.

Racebuddy is the beautiful thing that have ever happened.

Andrew

Thank you SO MUCH for the RB link.

I thought Kyle Petty spoke up well on the shrub situation without being overly heated like some of us.

Larry mac, my question to you is,

If Kyle B would've taken a HAMMER to a Martinsville clock in VL, would that "just be some personality that NASCAR needs?"

No thanks.

Anonymous said...

TNT and TBS use stretch-o-vision to make everything 16:9 format - you will never see 4:3 content on a Turner network.

Dot said...

@ Strick, ditto.

@ dear Sophia, ditto to you too.

Vicky D said...

yeah, RB looks good already. KP's explanation about the guitar was great. I hope Kyle Busch doesn't win any more races at Nashville, so he won't have a "nice" guitar trophy hanging in his trophy room to show his grandkids when he's talking about all his Nascar wins!

Dot said...

Didn't KP use to ride a Victory?

Sophia said...

This Race Buddy is so cool. I remember bad mouthing this new tinker toy when JD announced it last season.

I could not have been more wrong!

I loved it last season.

OMG! Raising Rutledge off the ground. Kyle singing that is a HOOT! Now THIS is fun. :)

Anonymous said...

I know Larry works in the booth for Speed, but Fox owns Speed. Most of the guys on the Fox broadcast also work in similar capacities for Speed. But its not the same thing as also working for ABC or TNT. As an example, Fox would never allow DW to work in the booth for ESPN during their portion of the season. Each of the separately owned networks like to have their own identity for broadcasts. They do allow pit reporters like Yocum to work the sames positions on broadcasts, however.

Daly Planet Editor said...

red, what the Turner guys wanted to do was cluster everything online so fans could have one windoe and be watching TV.

I told them, the only thing they left out was TDP!!

red said...

also, is anyone else getting a bird singing on the RB application? sounds like a robin to me. . . .

Jojaye said...

WOW JD - this RB this year is better than last year.

And now Rut & KP lol

I probably won't fire up MRN today. or for the next 5 weeks

Thanks TNT, could you please leave it for rest of season? Think of it as a public mental health service.

Sophia said...

Dot if you have Depends in the house, don't need to leave the couch..just sit there all day and drink beer.

YIKES!! Not my kinda man..unless it was a TRUE medical condition of course.

But if it's just being a slug. "Hey Dot honey, bring me another beer! I don't need no stinkin' potty break"

PRN's Jim Noble is doing a second stream of interviews on the RaceBuddy pit road plus cam.

This is a great innovation. Remember, we opened chat three seasons ago because nothing like RaceBuddy existed back then.

I really like it, hope the telecast and the racing lives up to the technology.

That explains why he sounded familiar and didn't look familiar, he works for PRN!

red said...

while we wait for the green flag:
i should know this but i don't so i'm turning to the planeteers for information. long pond is referred to as a "tri-oval" by nascar types. but it's really just an isosceles triangle. anyone know when/why a triangle became a tri-oval?
and does the track still have "turn 3/4" painted on in one of the corners? what's that all about?

Dot said...

Found the scanner feature.

@ red, for those who don't their triangle shapes. Also heard it called a roval.

Anonymous said...

@ red

The Nascar types who call Pocono a tri-oval are not correct, it only has three turns, is definitely a triangle.

And its been that way since they used to run the 500 mile IndyCar race there.

hooking up my laptop to the big screen is absolutely incredible, long live racebuddy, and let's get

Vicky D said...

Yeah, I don't like the light blue suit either.

red said...

@anon 1:31: agreed about the triangle nature of long pond. the question came up b/c the RB page declares long pond to be a tri-oval and i always wondered why that terminology came to be THE way to refer to the track.

laughing with kyle petty: "drivers know nothing! i said it before: they stick their head in a bucket and go out and drive!" and that's why i like having petty on the broadcast.

Kate said...

That bird is probably perched near the camera/mikestand... it's not canned, I'm sure. When they're not running interviews, you just hear the birds, the white noise of the crowd in the background, guys yelling farther away, sound of a backup alarm. It's awesome... just like being there. Who needs TV? RB rules!

I continue to be ecsstatic about racebuddy, at first I was little worried where swapping from mosaic to one of the cams led to a 15sec commercial (possibly resulting in missed aciton, if you switch to catch something) however it seems they've fixed that already, and the commercials occur on a return to mosaic.

massive kudos to TNT!

Just turn on your computer speakers. RaceBuddy has natural sound and also a designated pit reporter just for computer users.

He is on the pit road plus cam.

nrf, I meant are they going to playback Kyle when he is introduced.

The fans were chanting anti-Kyle stuff during the drivers meeting and a NASCAR official had to quiet them.

hotaru-raganbaby_6 said...

Do they still have that lame segment?

Some things never change.

so, one RB feature i think i'd like: the ability to minimize one or two windows and still keep the others up. for example, if i don't want pit road, minimize it and the remaining three windows fill the screen.
