Here we go with a very fast and exciting Nationwide Series race from the Lowe's Motor Speedway. ESPN2 is providing the live coverage.
Allen Bestwick will start the day with the pre-race NASCAR Countdown program. Alongside of him will be Rusty Wallace and Brad Daugherty. Tim Brewer will be in the Tech Garage. On pit road will be Shannon Spake, Jamie Little, Dave Burns and Vince Welch.
The broadcast team will be Marty Reid, Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree. ESPN has been working Jarrett and Petree very hard. They will already have been on the air for many hours by the time that the race rolls around..
This is one of the most challenging races of the season for the ESPN Producer and Director. Action happens to fast that using the in-car cameras live or playing back recorded features is almost impossible.

Let's offer a post for comments on the early Friday TV coverage from SPEED and ESPN2. The full TV schedule is on the right side of the main page.
This should be a good couple of hours leading up to the Nationwide Series race. Without Chasers and on a cool and very fast track, the Friday race could wind up being the highlight of the weekend.
Just a quick note, Marty Reid will be filling in for Jerry Punch on the Happy Hour coverage for the Sprint Cup Series tonight. Punch has a scheduled off night for a function in the area.
