Live Blogging Camping World Trucks In Michigan (1:30PM - SPEED)
One of the best racing series on TV is NASCAR's Camping World Trucks. Quietly consistent for years, the production values and focused announcing has kept the fans coming back again and again.
Today at 1:30PM Krista Voda starts coverage with The Setup pre-race show. Voda will double-up as a pit reporter once the pre-race is over. Adam Alexander is off working on the TNT Sprint Cup telecasts, so Voda will join Ray Dunlap on pit road.
Rick Allen, Phil Parsons and Michael Waltrip will call the action. These three have been very effective since Waltrip discontinued his endless sponsor mentions and attempts at humor. The trucks always have stories to tell and the challenge for the TV booth is simply to tell them.
Old school TV coverage consists of focusing on the racing, period. The last truck race turned out to be a barn burner and the big MIS oval could make for some super action. There are several Sprint Cup Series drivers, like Elliott Sadler, crossing over to the trucks who would really like to return to the winner's circle in any series.
