Your Turn: Sprint Cup Series From Bristol On ABC
The Sprint Cup Series moved from ESPN to ABC for the Saturday night race from the Bristol Motor Speedway.
Nicole Briscoe hosted the pre-race show with Ray Evernham, Rusty Wallace and Brad Daugherty. Tim Brewer was in the Tech Garage. Marty Reid called the race with Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree in the TV booth. On pit road were Dr. Jerry Punch, Jamie Little, Dave Burns and Vince Welch.
The pictures and sound were again solid. There were no technical problems. Several TV markets around the nation chose to show NFL football or other programming. TDP provided alternate viewing choices sent to us by ESPN.
The pre-race show focused on paybacks by drivers, including video of drivers fighting going back for over a decade. The race was billed as being a clash of egos and lots of potential deliberate accidents.
The weather was great, the stands were full and the teams put on a good race from start to finish. This post is an opportunity for you to voice your comments on the ABC coverage produced by the NASCAR on ESPN team.
