Live Blogging Wednesday Night's NASCAR Doubleheader on SPEED
This should be a blast. First of all the Whelen Modifieds are the quickest things the Bristol Motor Speedway has ever seen. Mike Joy and Dick Berggren will call the action at 7PM for this race special.
The race was actually run at 6PM, so please let us all enjoy it as it unfolds on TV. This is a very different style of racing than most NASCAR fans have seen, so hopefully we can enjoy it as it happens on SPEED.
Krista Voda is up next with The Setup. This pre-race show for the Camping World Truck Series will focus on Ron Hornaday. One other story Voda will be reporting is an update on racing veteran Johnny Benson, injured in a Supermodified wreck a while back. Benson is in Bristol and will appear on the show.
Rick Allen, Phil Parsons and Michael Waltrip are next with the CWTS race. This trio has learned to work well together, especially when Waltrip leaves his sponsor-driven agenda back in his motorcoach. Allen can certainly crank up the excitement and this racetrack is the perfect place for that.
The truck field is sometimes a bit thin, but this week all different kinds of drivers have entered for the Wednesday race. It should be a very different challenge for Hornaday once the green flag falls.
