Live Blogging Camping World Trucks In Texas (8:30PM ET SPEED)
This week the Camping World Truck Series stops at the Texas Motor Speedway for a Friday night race on SPEED.
The cast of characters is familiar, but one regular is missing. Adam Alexander is off starting his six race assignment of handling the play-by-play for TNT over in the Sprint Cup Series.
Krista Voda will host the pre-race show and then move to a pit reporter position to work with Ray Dunlap. Up in the booth to call the race will be Rick Allen, Phil Parsons and Michael Waltrip.
The trucks are very fast at Texas and the high speed brings a very new level of danger. This track has incidents that happen very fast and that is the challenge for SPEED's veteran TV crew.
We have used the work of this team as example to FOX of what straightforward racing on TV should look like. The CWTS TV team kicks it old school and has done so very effectively for several years.
As we have often seen with the trucks this season, there should be a quick separation into the "haves" and "have nots" where speed is concerned. Hopefully, the number of "start and park" teams will be limited.
