Live Blogging The Camping World Trucks From Texas (8:30PM - SPEED)
A long day of NASCAR TV on SPEED will cap with the Camping World Truck Series race. Krista Voda starts the pre-race show at 8:30PM with The Setup. Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander are the pit reporters.
At 9PM, it will be Rick Allen, Phil Parsons and Michael Waltrip calling the action. This should be a dynamic event for the series. The field is a good mix of veterans, Cup driver cross-overs and some of the young guns.
SPEED's telecast may go a long way toward answering some of the issues raised when ESPN and NASCAR had problems this last week after Talladega. The truck series TV team covered the Saturday race from the very same track and had an outstanding telecast.
The coverage tonight should be straightforward, simple and effective. The high speeds and fast action of TMS mandate no excessive in-car cameras, no soundbite playback under green flag racing and quick transition into and out of commercial.
SPEED uses the racing TV fundamentals to put a comfortable telecast on the air. Voda sets the tone in the pre-race and Allen carries it through the on-track action.
