Live Blogging Nationwide Series From Kentucky (7:30PM ET - ESPN)
The Nationwide Series is in Kentucky for a stand-along race on ESPN. The weather has been rainy all day and NASCAR is hoping to get this one in tonight.
Allen Bestwick will host the NASCAR Countdown pre-race show. He will be joined by Rusty Wallace and Brad Daugherty. The program will be thirty minutes.
Wallace will then make his way up to the booth to join Marty Reid and Andy Petree to call the race. This team has already handled the qualifying that aired on ESPN earlier Saturday. On pit road are Dr. Jerry Punch, Jamie Little, Dave Burns and Vince Welch.
Reid and Bestwick are a powerful combination for ESPN and the network must be happy with the results so far this season. One continuing struggle is Rusty Wallace up in the TV booth. Just like he did back in 2007, Wallace cannot divorce himself from his racing past and current ownership status.
ESPN has come a long way with the directing and producing of these telecasts. Tonight should be a good opportunity to showcase the Nationwide regulars and show the racing under the lights.
