Live Blogging Friday NASCAR TV
Before we update Friday NASCAR TV, here are some recent Twitter messages from Wendy Venturini of SPEED:
It's difficult to keep the good news in any longer. We want to be the first to share with all of you...Jarrad & I are expecting a baby! Add to that, it's a BOY!! Our lil guy is due to arrive December 27...just as planned for the off-season! I'll be off camera Homestead to Daytona, but not a single NASCAR Raceday will be missed! Be prepared to watch my baby bump grow! Thanks!
Congrats to Wendy and Jarrad!
This is another split weekend with the Nationwide Series racing in Kentucky while the Camping World Trucks and the Sprint Cup Series are at the Michigan International Speedway. The ARCA Series will also race at MIS.
SPEED begins coverage at 11AM ET with NASCAR Live. John Roberts has Randy Pemberton on the panel while Bob Dillner and Wendy Venturini will be reporting.
The TNT crew is up next on SPEED as they call the early Sprint Cup Series practice. Adam Alexander, Kyle Petty and Wally Dallenbach Jr. will be in the TV booth. Roberts comes back with another edition of NASCAR Live after the practice.
