Your Turn: Sprint Cup Series From Talladega On ABC.
This is the post-race location for comments on Sprint Cup Series coverage. Here are the details.
Sunday, the NASCAR on ESPN team covered the Sprint Cup Series race from Talladega, Alabama. The weather was good and there were no technical problems.
Allen Bestwick started the day with a one hour pre-race version of NASCAR Countdown from the Infield Pit Studio. Joining him were Ray Evernham, Rusty Wallace and Brad Daugherty. They offered conversation, interviews and several pre-recorded features.
Jerry Punch handled the play-by-play for the race. Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree were alongside in the TV booth. The pit reporters were Shannon Spake, Jamie Little, Vince Welch and Dave Burns.
The race had a new emphasis on bump-drafting and potential penalties from NASCAR. The early racing became single-file. The final fifty laps featured the regular kind of two and three wide racing that we normally see at Talladega. There were two big accidents toward the end of the race. Both featured cars flipping over.
