Truck Series Qualifying And ARCA/REMAX Race From Chicagoland

SPEED's truck series trio of Rick Allen, Michael Waltrip and Phil Parsons are back at 5PM ET with coverage of the qualifying from Chicagoland. Immediately following that will be the ARCA/REMAX series race.

The truck field is good, but just how many are there to race on this big track and how many are there to make some money and go home without even using one set of tires remains to be seen.

While there is one dance going on at the front of the field, there is another dance in progress at the tail end. Trucks battle to see who can remain on the track just one lap longer than the next "start and parker."

Hopefully, the fact that the Chicagoland race is on a off-weekend may make it possible for more of the teams who towed up North to run the race. This is good TV exposure for teams on a weekend before the real college and pro football seasons begin.

Click here for the truck series entry list from Jayski. A very diverse line-up.

Rick Allen and Phil Parsons will continue on SPEED to call the ARCA race. This duo has been very effective in getting viewers the behind-the-scenes information about what NASCAR owners and teams are really behind some of the ARCA drivers this season.

TDP will be live blogging the Camping World Truck Series event that starts at 8:30PM with Krista Voda and the pre-race show. In the meantime, please leave your comments on the qualifying program and ARCA race on this post.

Nice to actually see some Truck Series qualifying!

JD will you have a topic about the shift of Daytona 500 Coors Pole Qualifying at some point?

S. Compton was on during qualifying talking about how they're running wide open around the track and that it will create some three wide racing tonight. He said the draft is also in play as well.
This could be some really good racing tonight! Wish it wasn't on so late, my only problem.

Even Mikey mentioned the S&P'ers on the show tonight and the qualifying coverage on Speed is pretty good. They have more than a full field at Chicago which the truck series hasn't had in a real long time. Glad Brent Sherman had a nice qualifying run too.

Why aren't there more ARCA races shown on TV?

JD - that picture above is fabulous I love it. We didn't like the "music" right before the green flag to the ARCA race. Fun race night as long as it doesn't rain! Glad AA is pit reporting and hope Parker wins the race although I like Ickler too!

Hey all.

David, once the TV gets sorted out for that day I will update it.

Dot, pic is from MW on Twitter of those three playing golf on a day off.

ARCA has struggles on TV for a combination of factors. They just need a good media consultant.

There is a new column up for the truck series race.

I hope they have a different director for the cameras work in the Truck race or we are in trouble.
