Live Blogging The Nationwide Series From Watkins Glen (2:30PM ET - ESPN2)
Here we go with what might be one of the best races of the season. ESPN2 will be covering the Nationwide Series event beginning at 2:30PM ET.
Allen Bestwick will have thirty minutes to set the table for the race from the Infield Pit Studio. Bestwick will have his regular panelists Rusty Wallace and Brad Daugherty alongside. This show should revolve around the wide variety of personalities in the field.
