Live Blogging The Camping World Trucks From Nashville, TN (7:30PM - SPEED)
Krista Voda starts the telecast off for SPEED with the pre-race show from Nashville at 7:30PM. Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander are the reporters.
Rick Allen, Phil Parsons and Michael Waltrip are going to call the race. This trio is going to be faced with a limited field that may struggle a bit to put on a good event. Most fans are well aware of the economic challenges that have put a real dent in this great series.
Look for SPEED to keep the emphasis on the racing at the front of the pack among the fulltime competitive teams. This is a good track for the trucks and fits the profile of the series when it was first created.
SPEED has long used the old school approach to this racing coverage. No gimmicks or gizmos, just coverage of the event as it unfolds with the emphasis on the teams and the drivers.
Waltrip brings his colorful personality to the coverage and can be a tremendous asset or a tough liability. Left to wander into sponsor-driven commentary, Waltrip takes himself out of the telecasts with his shilling. When he is focused on the race and focusing the attention on the track, Allen can get some great analysis from this veteran.
