Your Turn: Sprint Cup Series From Atlanta On ESPN
Thanks for continuing to give us your comments after the NASCAR TV telecasts this season.
Sunday night ESPN handled the Sprint Cup Series night race from the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Allen Bestwick opened the show from the Infield Pit Studio with Rusty Wallace, Brad Daugherty, and Ray Evernham. Tim Brewer was in the Tech Garage.
Up in the broadcast booth was Jerry Punch along with analysts Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree. Down on pit road was Shannon Spake, Jamie Little, Dave Burns and Vince Welch.
This was a very long race that started in the daylight and transitioned to night. The challenge for the TV team was to balance calling the race while keeping things in perspective for the Chase for the Championship.
ESPN continued with the colored graphics, emphasized the Chase drivers and was faced with a very interesting tire situation.
We would like you to review your NASCAR TV experience. Your comments can be of any length, we would just like you to stay on topic. This is a family-friendly website, please keep that in mind when posting.
Thank you for taking some time out of your holiday weekend to give us your comments.
