Live Blogging Nationwide Series Practice (ESPN2 - 3PM ET)
Here we go with one of the most interesting televised practice sessions in recent NASCAR history. The field for the Nationwide Series race at Daytona includes 14 Sprint Cup drivers and many other seasoned veterans. Then, there is Danica.
ESPN2 added this live coverage after Patrick committed to this event. That should clearly speak to the "Danica effect" that has happened since here ARCA debut.
Marty Reid will call the telecast with Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree alongside. This session may also signal the debut of Dr. Jerry Punch, who is returning to his pit road reporter role this season. Vince Welch, Dave Burns and Jamie Little are the other ESPN pit reporters.
The focus will be squarely on Patrick as she takes to the track for the first time with the big boys. This session is focused on drafting and running in big packs, which is exactly what Patrick has not done in this type of car.
