ESPN's Afternoon TV From Richmond, VA
ESPN2 is on the air with coverage of the Sprint Cup Series practice, Nationwide Series qualifying and finally Sprint Cup Series qualifying.
Jerry Punch will handle the Sprint Cup Series action while Marty Reid has returned and will call the Nationwide Series activities. Both play-by-play announcers will be working with Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree.
This is going to be a long day for Jarrett and Petree. They will also stick around to handle the Nationwide Series race later tonight.
Richmond is a huge race for the sport and the tension level is high in the Sprint Cup Series garage. Keep an eye on the interviews from the pit reporters in these sessions for who is having a good day and who is struggling.
