Live Blogging Monday's NASCAR TV


Update: ESPN has added a re-air of the Watkins Glen Sprint Cup Series race at 9PM ET on ESPN Classic. Great move.

The RaceDay gang says they are raring to go at Watkins Glen and waiting for 11AM to come on the air. SPEED will handle the one hour pre-race show and then ESPN will start live coverage of the rain delayed Sprint Cup Series race at noon ET.

John Roberts, Jimmy Spencer and Kenny Wallace are the RaceDay panel. Wendy Venturini and Hermie Sadler are the reporters. This program should feature the weather, the Nationwide Series race and reset the grid for the Cup Series event.

ESPN has Jerry Punch, Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree calling the race. Down on pit road will be Jamie Little, Dave Burns, Shannon Spake and Vince Welch.

The racing should be outstanding with the new restart rules and hopefully good weather will allow things to go off without a hitch.

This race re-airs on SPEED at noon ET on Wednesday in a three hour timeslot. NASCAR Now is on ESPN2 at 5PM. Will be pushed back if race runs long.

Crap. After going to many Glen races, we were outta cash for anything this year. And here I sit at work missing the race thanks to rain. I will be checking in with NASCAR dot com and this site every half hour or so...so blog away those of you lucky enough to be able to watch the race.

diane said...

JD, just to clarify, it will be ESPN, not ESPN2 Right?

Martin Vincent said...

For you Canadian viewers, it's live on TSN2.

@diane - Yes, it's on ESPN.

Daly Planet Editor said...

di, it is ESPN.

Dot said...

I'll be cheating at work. Please comment explicitly so I know what's going on. Thanks.

darbar said...

Does anyone know, this whole ban of Twitter by ESPN, does this also include guys like Dale Jarrett or is this just for their full time, on air, personnel?

BTW, yesterday on Fox News, they discussed the ban of Twitter by ESPN. Everyone who discussed this slammed ESPN for this decision. They basically said that here you have an organization who's primary goal is to disseminate information trying to stop their employees from doing just that. One panelist even said this is akin to a Taliban edict prohibiting just about everything. The way they were making fun of ESPN was absolutely hysterical.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Ohhhhh, Kenny Wallace. What has happened to you on the air?

Daly Planet Editor said...

dar,

Any ESPN employee. That covers freelance and contract employees like Dale Jarrett.

Steve said...

I heard it was to be replayed on ESPN Classic tonight... is this not the case?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Steve, I asked them this AM if it was going to be replayed and they said not this week.

Let me check my email and see if I have an update. I think ESPN should absolutely replay it tonight somewhere.

Otherwise, it's SPEED at noon on Weds.

Anonymous said...

I hope to be able to hack more of Raceday today. Made it through about 10 seconds yesterday. When Spenser showed up dressed like a cheap imitation of Patton I switched channels. Why is it that all the Fox affiliated units think that we need cartoon rodents and this drivel.

Today male dogs in heat? Where is my remote...

The race last week was replayed at night on ESPN2. I think they should do the same this week.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Jimmy Spencer continues to redefine NASCAR TV coverage.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Nothing in the mailbox. I am going to continue to work on ESPN for a re-air.

Steve said...

Thanks for looking. I thought they said ESPN Classic this morning on 'The Morning Drive' but I was trying to find out for sure and the ESPN site was worthless.

It would be a travesty if they didn't reply it tonight, for those of us who work 8-5 for living. [I guess I really need to buy a DVR so I can record it.]

Anonymous said...

a DVR is an invaluable resource for NASCAr fans.

you can either watch much later or start watching 1-2 hrs later (figuring 20 mins of commercials per hour) and fast forward thru most if not all of the commercials

Dot said...

PM Tstorms. We should be able to see the whole race.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Amazing that the DVR has changed the viewing habits of so many NASCAR fans.

Really took a bite out of the live ratings. Side by side commercials would have solved a LOT of problems...but no.

Anonymous said...

Wendy in the motorhome lot. something you will never see in ESPN.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Hermie Sadler has come such a long way on TV.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Apparently, the sun came out around 5PM so everyone had social hour last night.

Guys like Elliott Sadler and Juan Montoya got golf carts and drove around the infield.

Vince said...

To address the start time issues on Sundays. I lived in Calif for a time back in 1986-1987. I had no problem getting up having breakfast and watching the races. They started at 12:15 or 12:30pm back then. East coast time, 9:15/9:30am West coast time. I could watch the whole race, eat some lunch and then had the whole afternoon and evening free. So I don't understand what NASCAR's reasoning is for starting the races so late in the day. Get them run earlier and miss all the mid to late afternoon rain showers back east.

I think this Speed pre race needs a new panel of commentators. I'm getting very tired of Jimmy and Kenny's act. Love Hermie and Wendy. They are the best.

Anonymous said...

why does KW have an umbrella next to desk?

Does he know something?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Vince,

When they had Kyle Petty and Hermie Sadler on the panel it was a very different vibe.

Just sayin...

Daly Planet Editor said...

I can't believe you noticed that too! Probably just keeping it with him in case..

Haus14 said...

Vince, that is what I did today. Went to bed late last night and woke up to have breakfast and turn on Race Day. I love it!

Martin Vincent said...

@Anon 11:25 - The hour-by-hour forecast did call for possible showers at 11:00am, RaceDay's start time.

Daly Planet Editor said...

ESPN is already starting to promote next Saturday's MIS Nationwide race with no play by play announcer.

That should be interesting...

Anonymous said...

I think the DVR has helped NA$CAR keep more of the fans. Many of us feel the first 75% of a race is wasted time and only the end is worth watching. We frequently go about our day and catch up on the early part of the race with the DVR and catch the end live. If not for the DVR, we would just skip the whole thing and wait for football season. The chase has made the drivers close to the top 12 drive defensively which makes it follow the leader with the IROC car.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Got the word from ESPN, no re-airs planned for this race.

Hmmm...

bevo said...

The use of Tivo's by NASCAR fans also shows that the races are too long.

Oh and by the way - Good Morning!

West Coast Diane said...

Husband and I agree with starting races earlier. As a west coaster, if I were to watch live, much rather do it at 10AM to have afternoons free.

In this day and age of DVR's the PTB need to rethink the whole starting time theory anyway.

Have fun today guys and gals. Will read you up to start of race then finish after I watch tonight. I DVR'd race via Directv's feature to set the dvr via PC.

Cross fingers for me it worked :-)

WOW! I know Jimmy S is a loose cannon but.

male dogs in heat! Everybody knows it's the female, but he just kept going on and on and on. Heck I don't like Kyle Busch but even I would not tie him into such an analogy.

Woof, woof.

Thanks for the answer in the other post JD.

Hey, the sun is out so thats a plus

Anonymous said...

Why would they want to show an old race from the 1990's tonite on ESPNC when they could easily re-air today's race. HELP!!!

Anonymous said...

JD, show us your pull here... the 6:00 slot would work on ESPNC. Pull out all the stops.

Patrick said...

Doing the same as WCDiane, DVR'd the race (manually with Dish) and will watch when I get home. My biggest frustration is that I've been using RaceView and PitCommand that won't be available on a delay. The replays are available for more than a week after the original session.

West Coast Diane said...

Hey, I was checking out Jayski's article links.

The top one is in red and says "ESPN's racecast - LIVE coverage and chat"!!!

Clicked on it and it opened a page without asking for a password!!

Is this normal? Don't think so....

With Lowes not renewing their contract with Charlotte Speedway who will take over the naming rights? My vote is for Extendz "cause they have the longest race on the circuit"!

Ok,I'm ashamed of myself...

Frank in Sebring

Daly Planet Editor said...

Let's just say the ESPN guys were not to happy about me pushing for a re-air. Their comments were...um...brief.

David said...

Something useful for the road courses I think would be the old ESPN tool of using a green up arrow or red down arrow to show if someone has moved up or back since the last time the ticker scrolled...

random thought but something that just came to mind

Daly Planet Editor said...

Di, they have Ryan McGee from home doing a live race chat over at ESPN.com.

ESPN.com has been trying to get fans to the site, but I don't think they know why or how.

Best of luck to Ryan, moderating is a *cough* lot of fun.

David said...

Frank, just say no sometimes! lol

Anonymous said...

Well, there will be a lot of unhappy fans that they will need to be brief with. How can we contact them?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Just jump over to ESPN.com and ask Ryan about it. Be nice!

Helluva good in a prayer, does it get any better?

Bob said...

didn't understand it last week and do not get it today

why do the invocation and national anthem again? didnt we do this yesterday? Can you bless a race twice?

In the day - Network TV would come on with cars going around the track and at 11AM - not NOON!

West Coast Diane said...

JD,

Oops, guess it was wishful thinking.

Since it had some timing/scoring info when I saw the video window, thought the race was going to be shown.

Should have known better. You can smack me now :-)

David, I already did! Why I needed some advice. That feed is from the UK and is getting around the US copyright laws.

When the hammer comes down, it is going to be a very expensive one for that guy.

bevo said...

Don't think Jamie has an idea what a "ringer" is in racing

Daly Planet Editor said...

No problem, if Turner and NASCAR and ESPN could get a clue, this race would be streamed online with the ESPN commercials.

Unfortunately, Turner is not playing well with others right now.

So...

Jojaye said...

Well I worked last night & have to work tonight. So I'm in between "naps" Heres hoping no rain. Morning coffee & a race - this is living!

Could someone explain Elliotts huge white sunglasses? Is he making fun of Scott Speed?

That new title for the track is a no go. Maybe they could sponsor a "warranty" service...extended warranty.

See what you started. :)

I've also not heard "helluva" in a prayer before....

Daly Planet Editor said...

What is up with Jamie? She is having a really bad time with the Cup guys these days.

David said...

Well as a follower, I know you mentioned that before, but I meant lets not get you in MORE trouble lol.

You seem to dig your own holes well enough without our help lol

Lou said...

JD, watching the race on directv. one of the perks of working the night shift. still get to watch the race. looking forward to a great broadcast and the 7 in the winners circle. enjoy all.

Charlie said...

When they told the drivers to start their engines, some crew chiefs told their drivers to start the car and then shut if off until they were told to start moving out on the track.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Unfortunately, there is no way to limit the online streaming to just the US. Anything online violates the rights agreements with all kinds of folks worldwide.

Bummer...

MikeC said...

I'm going to take a drink today, for each time when JP says "if you're just joining our broadcast"....the first time he does it will be my cue that he's running out of steam and that he'll start repeating stats.

David said...

Charlie, thats common practice on any fuel mileage race.

Some just don't even start their engines when the command comes down

Daly Planet Editor said...

What about DJ with a scripted controversy question??

Why no comp yellow?

Getting the radio ready, just in case

Steve L. said...

I've seen that track map 100 times this weekend!

David said...

Did the Glen change those barriers at the end of pit road to water or are they still sand?

bevo said...

@JD- I really liked Jamie in the IRL. She is getting worse every week in NASCAR though. You would think she would do some homework about the sport. Sounds like she just hears phrases in the media center then spouts them on tv.

David said...

JP already sounds outta gas...

MikeC said...

This is interesting. If they would've run on Sunday the green flag would've dropped at :18 past the hour. Today, we're a few minutes past that.

Great. Not half way thru the first lap and we have a bumper cam thru the chicane. That shows nothing. A bad omen.

Guess there's no other racing going on behind the top 5?

MRN Radio...a passion for what they do, and it shows.
ESPN? Deader than a doornail, with lame coverage.
In early commercial, MRN is handling details on good early battles for position.

SalB said...

Am I oversensitive, or is ESPN jamming ads in hand over fist?

bevo said...

Speaking of MRN - second week in a row no race on the D/FW affiliate. Top 5 media market and no race coverage.

Let's take bets on how many times they're going to show Said's footwork.

No talk of start and parks. Hey, who the heck is Ave????

caution lap 18, debris on the track.

Anonymous said...

Think we'll see debris?
nah

Mike aka RickyBobby said...

anybody remember how much fun tnt made sonoma...exact opposite today

darbar said...

Caution, my behind. I remember they would never call a full course caution, but only a warning yellow for the area where the debris is located. There is no need for a full course yellow. Heck, even the open wheelers don't have a full course caution for a bit if gunk on the track.

Steve L. said...

I wonder if they talk about NASCAR as much during a baseball game as NASCAR talks about baseball during a race?

Charlie said...

I think the spelling of debris should be debree.

Haus14 said...

Well, I must say, I am really not enjoying this race. Tony isn't on hotpass this week and his sirius channel has Kenseth on it for some reason. I am having to rely on ESPN for info so I have no clue what is going happening.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Debris in the inner loop. Someone probably knocked over the red cone.

darbar said...

Gee Jerry, how critical is this????

SalB said...

The extra long commercial breaks aren't helping. That, and back to covering only the top 10 cars are really making me sad I'm sitting here watching this mess! Not even 20 laps and it's already a train wreck!

David said...

Dot, MA not thrilled with the car, stays out, several pit. MA leads

Bill said...

Ever just want to pull your hair out when your driver didn't pit with the rest of them!!!!

Charlie said...

leader pits plus a bunch of others, Marcos stays out. Hamlin, Dale jr. to fast on pit road.

Sophia said...

I see I am only missing aggravation..been on the phone with tv muted but the camera work looks totally ANNOYING as usual unless i am missing something.

sigh...

this camera work has got to go. YAY! MRN is on..thanks to some country music station I never listen to.

Dot

just heard Marcos did not make a pit stop just now.

jone1981 said...

Good thing only 3 cars stayed out - relatively easy for Jerry Punch to follow! Did take him a while to catch on that it happened, but he eventually did... for once.

darbar said...

OK, what is it with Southerners who don't realize there's no "D" in the word important. It's not impordant, but Southerners never pronounce that word correctly.

Phathead said...

JD,

How exactly do commercials work on a rainout? I realize sponsors pay to have their adds shown x number of times at y time.

But when they have a rain delay, and no race, they fill a couple of hours with commercials. Logic would say then that there really should be any commercials left for the race if it is run on Monday.

Now I assume that their contract says that the ads must be run DURING the race and not merely the time it is scheduled to run at, but even so I would think theoretically there should be less commercials during the race due to the air time yesterday.

Just started thinking of this when they came back from commercial on Lap 9 and then went back to it on Lap 11.

Charlie said...

Also Kahne and Sorenson stayed out.

boyd said...

darbar-Tony Ave is a road racer, or road parker in this case

darbar said...

Montoya hits a Ragan crewmember. Not good.

Charlie said...

If your to fast on pit road you have to go back to the back of the pack on restart.

darbar said...

Boyd, who's ride did Ave take over?

Anonymous said...

Phathead said...

How in the world did the director miss the 55 spinning there when he was right on the spot...

Carpentier (55) gets tapped by Stremme and spins but keeps going.

David said...

yeah, it was Raines' ride he is in.

This is a disjointed mess

Daly Planet Editor said...

Phat,

They just check for outdated content in the spot buys and change all the promo spots because the dates are wrong.

Other than that, it runs again from the start with the same sponsors.

No idea why they are front loading all the breaks right now. Tough to watch.

Sophia said...

Ask whats going on with the 7 and you get a report on the 39. WTH?? Totally horrid job by the pit reporters.

If they have had alt problems with the 39 from the start, why didn't they say something before now. That just annoys the heck out of me.

Wonder if we will ever find out whats going on with the 7.

Mike...perfect!LMAO!

Haus14 said...

jone1981 said...

ESPN's "Fastest Pit Crew of the Year" Promotion is so patently absurd. They took one of the most objectively verifiable stats imaginable and turned it into a popularity contest between Jeff Gordon, Dale Jr. and two others.

Bill said...

Fastest pit crew WOW, couldn't that just be decided by a dang stop watch. Another stupid popularity contest that has no bearing on reality.....

darbar said...

These fans don't know squat about racing. How can anyone vote for Earnhardt's crew when they never get him out in a higher position then when he got in the pits. They always get him out at least 8 places below than where he started

I had never heard of Cracker Barrel, because they don't have any up here, until they started sponsoring the Atlanta spring race

Evidently, he can't stand the ESPN broadcast either.

Wonder how KH really feels.....

This pit strategy is really confusing the booth.

Dar they are a northeast company that makes certain food products. They are a sponsor at Dover as well and have been since last season

Marcos in pits, Lap 30. Kurt pitted on lap 29.

Marty's remark should REALLY say something to ESPN. Wonder if that was ESPN-approved? LOL

ambrose pit strategy

laps 30 and 60?

Haus14 said...

I can hear JP now...wow look at Smoke, where did he come from - since he restarted 8th and is now in 4th and no one has said a word.

jone1981 said...

We are seeing a bizarre set of fuel strategies here. I admit it's beyond me. I need Jerry Punch here, but I know he's clueless too. The most analysis we've gotten here is from Andy Petree saying he disagrees with the calls and is confused - can you explain why?

Steve L. said...

Four tires and fuel only? What Vince?

SalB said...

Surely there must be some cars actually racing each other behind the leaders? Can't we see some of that??

darbar said...

Thanks David, you're a font of information. Phathead, I wasn't slamming the sponsor, but I just never heard of them.

MikeC said...

Ironic.....Stremme and Harvick were sitting side by side in the studio yesterday. When Harvick was asked about drivers he didn't like race against and he mentioned there were some, I wonder if Stremme was one of those he was thinking of?
