Your Turn: Daytona 500 On FOX
This is the first post of the new season asking directly for opinions of the NASCAR On FOX coverage of the Sprint Cup Series. The Daytona 500 was the first race.
Mike Joy, Larry McReynolds and Darrell Waltrip were the trio calling the race. On pit road were Steve Byrnes, Matt Yocum, Krista Voda and Dick Berggren. Chris Myers and Jeff Hammond were stationed in the Hollywood Hotel.
This race started under cold conditions and ran with few problems until being stopped for a pothole on the track that developed in a turn. After a long delay, the racing started again at 5PM. The same problem reappeared and the race was stopped again. The final restart was at 6:35PM ET.
The problem with the track had nothing to do with the TV coverage. Issues like this arise from time to time. We are looking for your comments on the NASCAR on FOX team.
We offer this opportunity to post your thoughts immediately after the race and before we publish our column about the TV coverage. This is the most widely read post in our weekly line-up and has been credited with helping to get fan viewpoints across to the TV networks, NASCAR and the teams.
