Live Blogging The Sprint Cup Series Race From Texas (2:30M - ABC)


Three races remain in the 2009 Sprint Cup Series season and all of them will be on ABC.

Allen Bestwick leads the NASCAR on ESPN team on-air with NASCAR Countdown. He will be joined by Brad Daugherty and Rusty Wallace. Tim Brewer will contribute from the Tech Garage.

Jerry Punch is calling the play-by-play action from TMS. He has Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree alongside of him for the race. Down on pit road are Jamie Little, Shannon Spake, Vince Welch and Dave Burns.

This race is fast and dangerous. Accidents happen very quickly and the on-track action under green leaves very little time for features and the playback of recorded material.

It is hard to use the in-car cameras at this track live because there is almost always passing and action going on somewhere in the field. The aerial shot is effective and really puts things in perspective in terms of track positions. It should also show the double-file restarts quite well.

The low angle "speed shots" at TMS work quite well to deliver the reality of the speed to the TV viewers. They are most effective on restarts when the pack is still bunched together and coming up to speed.

Pit stops under caution should have the normal triple-split video coverage. The race off pit road is key once again. Green flag pit stops demand a split screen, as the action continues at full speed regardless of the cars cycling through pit road.

There has been great sound and pictures from TMS on Friday and Saturday for the truck and Nationwide Series races. With all the TV toys available to them, it should come down to smart choices being made by the ESPN producer and director to keep the focus on the racing and update the stories unfolding during the event.

Hey everyone, this could be a great race today. Just wish it started a little earlier.

Newracefan said...

I agree last week I could make dinner after the race. This week it's back to crock pot meal.

ri88girl said...

This is abt pre-race, cuz you keep moving the posts!

I really wouldn't have so much fun on Raceday without Jimmy Spencer. I realize he can be annoying and down right unintellegable, but he is funny! I love that raceday song would like it as a ring tone do they have it up online anywhere?

Daly Planet Editor said...

ri88, sports TV works best with a mix of characters and personalities. That is a good example.

ABC time!

news?

NEWS!?! WTF?

Daly Planet Editor said...

That was interesting. We have not really seen that before unless there was breaking news.

Newracefan said...

News? this is different but the prerace is too long anyway so better now and not during the race

Daly Planet Editor said...

Think it was just because of the top stories?

Anonymous said...

I liked this abc news update. a different a new addition. I think this week it makes news appropriate with all the breaking news going on with the shooting and health care.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Never seen her before, but that was brief and to the point.

They are pretty big stories, I'm kind of OK with it

I agree, not bothered by the news break, I don't think this is going to be a standard feature, but rather become of some of the very significant events going on right now...

Anonymous said...

being in Texas though, I think they missed a good segway into the events nearby in fort hood, and TMS response, the new grass logos, moment of silence, etc, but i haven't been listening that closely, so they may have already mentioned that on-air at the start

Vicky D said...

How many times have we seen this story and flips by Newman, McDowell, Martin & McDowell?

inkthatpaints said...

Interesting that the montage they just showed from dega included the MRN as a voice over rather than their own crew.

Dot said...

We get a two fer this week, Ryan & Michael McD. That's right, play up those wrecks.

Anonymous said...

wow this is an interesting piece on the physics of a crash.

Glenn said...

JD, please set me straight.

ABC/ESPN and FOX pay, NASCAR for the right to broadcast race content don't they?
I keep reading that NASCAR pays the broadcasters and I just don't think that's correct.
For every dollar a company pays NASCAR isn't it like NASCAR only keeps 10%, and the rest goes to the teams and tracks.
The main point of this is, what we see on tv is basically what the network want's us to see. They bought and paid for it so they can and will do whatever they want. At this point NASCAR's hands are tied in regards to changing what we see.
If mud is to be thrown, some needs to be thrown at the teams, tracks, and NASCAR because each one is getting a piece of the pie.

Not watching any coverage right now, football is on.
Been a while since I watched football but the coverage is better than ABC/ESPN.
But then again anything is better than ABC/ESPN.

I noticed that to. thats funny. It was more exciting that way.

dara2K said...

Really interesting spot on the Physics of Nascar. It was truly interesting and a fresh presentation. "The Physics of Nascar" by Diandra Leslie-Pelecky is a great book. She makes a credible and thoughtful guest. This is refreshing for the ABC/ESPN coverage. Maybe they are listening (and reading)...

Daly Planet Editor said...

Glenn,

Each of the four NASCAR TV partners (Fox, TNT, SPEED and ESPN) negotiated a contract that includes a set number of events.

These include practice, quals, races and studio shows.

Each of them have paid NASCAR to broadcast some races. SPEED has the trucks, the Daytona Twins and the All-Star races. Fox has the first part of the Cup season and a couple of truck races. TNT has the summer six pack.

ESPN has all the Nationwide races, the final seventeen Cup races and a daily TV show.

This group entered into a multi-year deal that began in 2007 and runs for several more years.

NASCAR also has their own TV and media company called NASCAR Images. SPEED hires this company to produce the shows from the SPEED Stage and TWIN. SPEED itself produces the truck races and the practice/qual coverage.

NMG also produces Quest for the Cup for Versus.

NASCAR does not pay anyone or any company to broadcast TV or radio.

One of the most popular sayings is that NASCAR cashes checks and rarely writes them.

Do the reporters not listen to Bestwick? Was that a prerecorded piece made to look live? Burns just repeated exactly what AB just got done saying.

Going to be nice with earlier start times next year.

I agree about the earlier start times. 12:30 is even late for me in LV.

David said...

this is still gonna be a 3 pm race next year tho...

cool deal with the pace car.

Texas stealing PIR's idea

Vicky D said...

If we were at the track we would have to stay overnight in Ft. Worth area as it would be a long long drive back the 4 hours to Houston after the race. Much prefer earlier start times. Nice looking pace car.

ri88girl said...

Can't tell ole DW there ARN'T any black helicoptors LOL Geat idea, he looked like he wanted to do a burn out when he pulled onto the track!

David, this is one of the key races to change the start time and get it one hour earlier next season. That's what is on my list.

Just finished reading Dustin Long interview with Baby Brian. Wow. I always suspected he lived in his own universe, but that interview shows how completely out of touch he is! I'ts everyone's fault but his! There is truly no hope for Nascar to get any better. He thinks everything is just fine. I give up.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Sally, I was bummed that he did not watch the race after all the media issues this past week.

Again, great work by Dustin Long.

Dot said...

Happy gets the curse.

Guess we'll be watching KB & JJ all day long no matter where they running per ABC's script.

@ VickyD, you are correct. :(

Brian France certainly blew off some of the questions & is well out of touch. He didn't watch the whole Talladega race? How do you not monitor the product you own?

I mean "some of us thought".

Haus14 said...

oh no! what will abc do now? will we now have a stationary cam in the jj garage?

Dot said...

@ haus14, you got that right.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Going to be an interesting balance between the live racing and the JJ updates.

Sally said...

Do you suppose Brian France paid Reut to do that to try to inject some 'excitement' into this inert 'chase'?

Buschseries61 said...

Boy, they prepared those 'points as of now' fast. I have a feeling we will see a lot of that today.

Anonymous said...

I am not a JJ fan, but Nascar has to do better in faking these races...they are too obvious with the planned accidents to keep the chase interesting.

NorCalfan:a re you surprised? The only shock is that JG didnt hit JJ with a folder metal chair, or MM put the japanese sleeper hold on him.
This is too obvious.

Sophia said...

Ok..just came in from a walk (in 70s in Nov in Ohio? ) turned on tv and in 10 seconds JJ crashed..to the garage.

Might have to watch a bit..not sure I want to watch more Bengals get injured.

WOW just saw replay, glad nobody is hurt in race (unlike Chris Henry's broken arm in NFL) but Lawdy, the booth will talk NON STOP about Jimmie and show him constantly in garage...

Anonymous said...

If I were the 5 or 24 team I'd be in a rush to the Goodyear trailer to buy some tires for the 36, 70, and 87 teams. They need those cars as buffers right now.

Buschseries61 said...

Are they really asking Mark Martin's crew chief how he feels about JJ's wreck?

How about getting ready for the restart?

ok BREAKING NEWS. I have a gripe with Hotpass...everytime they put a graphic up they include stupid sound effects....STOP!!!

And it was part of the script ...

Really? Split screen for JJ repairs.

Vicky D said...

Too much points racing broadcasting. What about the guys running in 30th?

Buschseries61 said...

ESPN: Jimmie Johnson is NOT the Story Of The Day. It is the RACE! This will be a long day.

Sally said...

They finally point out that jJ can't lost the lead today. even if he finishes last. Which he won't. I can do without the play by play garage cam.

Sophia said...

WOW! They can NOT leave the garage with JJ..good grief...just kindof amusing myself with how long the booth will FLIP OUT and FOCUS on JJ

Pitiful, ain't it? ;-)

Steve L. said...

How would they (48) ever be able to pass post race inspection replacing all the rear end parts?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Carl Edwards with a little media smackdown!

TexasRaceLady said...

Guess we now know where the race stands in ESPeeN's estimation --

the 48 gets the big window, the race gets the small window.

Sally said...

Wide shot would be nice to get some perspective on how cars are lined up on the track.

TexasRaceLady said...

Oh, good grief ---

The BIG STORY is NOT Jimmie Johnson.

It's the RACE !!!

But, what do I know, I'm just a fan.

David said...

Steve, once a car is involved in a wreck it is not exactly expected to fit templates again. They won't tech that car after the race, i guarantee that.

In all seriousness though, ESPN needs to un-fixate on JJ's repairs, touch up on it when the repairs are done and just track the race right now. Re-hashing the points won't matter because Jimmie should probably pick up a minimum of 5 places before the end. Follow the race please, not the Chase

Haus14 said...

you would think that we have never seen a car repaired before...did you know there was a race today? evidently we are going to have the pleasure of watching 2 guys garage formerly of the speed channel.

David said...

87 out, 36 out

Sophia said...

had tv muted...What did Carl say on media?

Need to find PRN..on roomies laptop

Vicky D said...

I guess since Hornish isn't in the Chase, we won't see the damage to his car.

Becky [@hightechredneck] said...

I'm sorry, but unless ABC/ESPN does the 'timer' while team is fixing a car (and showing the repairs being done) for EVERYONE, don't do it at all.

Chris from NY said...

Interesting to see how many new nicknames for ESBN we have.

BTW, what does DSPN mean?

This stupid "points as they run" is maybe the most annoying thing in these broadcasts. It is the most meaningless thing you could possibly tell me.

They jumped the shark before so I don't know what to call this mess.

Split screen of Jimmie's car in the bigger box ...

What is the point in watching this disaster???

JD says "ESPN is having a tough time figuring out how to do this".

Because it's not in the script. No back up plan. This is bad.

Chris from NY said...

We will yearn for the return of FOX.

Then when that happens, we will wait for TNT.

For now, I'd rather watch the Giants, even if they get their @X$es kicked.

I'll leave it to you guys to explain why I'm saying this.

Sorry, Brad, but we Texans do NOT call Turn 2 the Texas rattlesnake.

Listen you idiots, JJ is the story. You people are freakin morons.

J said...

Ive been watching football, checked in for an update and saw the 48 was last. I went to NASCAR.com to see the highlight. Could Jerry Punch have been more DULL when the #48 wrecked? That should have had a HUGE reaction especially when ESPN is so FOCUSED on the championship rather then the race. They need to have AB doing play by play or something. And I agree with most people. ESPN needs to stop with the "Big Story" Bull $#!t.

Chris from NY said...

We're watching Kurt Busch...

for what reason? Sponsorship mention?

Daly Planet Editor said...

TX rattlesnake....that was interesting huh?

Oh boy, full screen pit stops. Just whay we all like!

Tim S. said...

Sophia-PRN is ESPN Lite when it comes to JJ. They interrupted ten minutes of green flag racing at California to give a campaign speech about what an interesting, fun-loving guy Johnson is because he was messing around on a golf cart. Listen at your own risk.

Daly Planet Editor said...

OK, I am lost already. Lap 61.

Anonymous said...

...I missed the wreck, but this is what Terry Blount wrote: "Johnson was running on the outside line exiting Turn 2 when Sam Hornish's car got loose inside and slid up into Johnson's car. Johnson almost saved it up by the wall, but slid back down the track into Hornish again." Is that not what happened? That would make it Sam's doing. I'm sure they'll show it again, mind you. 45 times.

Newracefan said...

I've been listening to the 48 scanner. JJ silent and still in the car. Chad has only dropped the F bomb once and is so calm as he directs others it's amazing. Too bad he's not on TWIN this week. Now if I could just stop throwing up.

Chris from NY said...

That's why I just used the world's strongest 2-word statement to describe this coverage.

Dammit, Kyle.

Let someone who is running for a championship win for once. You didn't do that on Friday.

Buschseries61 said...

Why is Jeff Gordon back to 11th? How many cars are on the lead lap? Why are we watching 1 car on the screen?

I used to enjoy watching racing... said...

The full screen pitstops has to be some lame attempt at giving the cars sponsors the television time they are asking for. Remember the report that came our a few months ago that showed how much time Jimmy and Jeff were getting compared to everyone else??

I am willing to bet a lot of the sponsors are complaining of no tv time and asking why they should re-up....

In other words, full screen pitstops brought to you by na$car

Sophia said...

Tim S! 10 minutes?!

Thank you for the PRN tip.
Yes I ALSO think they are BSPN Lite. Well, got some fresh air and sunshine, eating leftovers, and tired.

So, rather than reset the field before going back green, they have the point standings on the ticker. Get the baboons out of the production truck.
