Live Blogging Camping World Trucks In Darlington (SPEED - 7PM ET)
It's a special one day show for the Camping World Trucks at the Darlington Raceway in South Carolina. SPEED has the pre-race show at 7PM and the race coverage at 7:30PM ET.
Krista Voda hosts The Setup with Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander as the reporters. This is a veteran crew that should be all smiles as the trucks run at Darlington. There is little doubt that tonight could be one of the best races of the year.
Rick Allen, Phil Parsons and Michael Waltrip will call the race. This track tends to string the field out quickly as side by side racing through the corners is really rough for the trucks.
Most passing is done down the straights, but taking it two-wide through the corners is going to be key for the TV crew to capture regardless of the position on the track. The truck series now features drivers of very different ability and experience. That will certainly come into play quickly in this race.
Pictures from Darlington under the lights are outstanding. This is an opportunity for the truck series TV team to recapture the magic of presenting uncomplicated and straightforward NASCAR coverage. There is a big transition taking place behind the scenes at SPEED and tonight we will see if the coverage of the only NASCAR series that the network televises from start to finish is affected.
