RPM News Welcome Before Sprint Cup Series Banquet
Monday the news came from several outlets that Richard Petty had emerged from his latest financial crisis not only intact, but in charge. Petty and a group of investors bought out RPM owner George Gillett and took control of RPM.
This is welcome news as the Sprint Cup Series gang heads for Las Vegas and the post-season awards show. Monday on SPEED, Steve Byrnes and Danielle Trotta will be reporting from Las Vegas for Race Hub while John Roberts will anchor the show from the network's Charlotte studios.
Race Hub is on at 7PM ET Monday through Thursday this week, then the two banquet shows air Friday. The combined Camping World Truck and Nationwide Series show is at 7PM, while the live Sprint Cup Series banquet is 9PM ET.
More on the format of the live coverage during the week. We hope to avoid the issues experienced in the past where the live portion of the banquet was non-existent.
