Live Blogging Friday At Watkins Glen (SPEED And ESPN2)

SPEED kicks off the day with Sprint Cup Series practice coverage from Watkins Glen at noon ET. Steve Byrnes, Jeff Hammond and Larry McReynolds are in the TV booth. Bob Dillner and Wendy Venturini are the reporters.

ESPN2 picks-up the action with Nationwide Series practice at 2PM ET. Marty Reid, Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree are in the booth. This trio sticks around for the 4PM Sprint Cup Series final practice as well. Nicole Briscoe then hosts NASCAR Now at 5:30PM from ESPN's Bristol, CT headquarters.

The TV coverage wraps-up with Trackside on SPEED at 7PM. Elliott Sadler is back on the show with host Steve Byrnes, Larry McReynolds and Jeff Hammond. It should be interesting to see what Sadler has to say about his rough ride last week in Pocono.

This is always a good opportunity to see the differences in coverage approach between SPEED and ESPN. SPEED is much more focused on chasing the stories of the moment while ESPN has a lot of pre-produced features and interviews all set before the coverage starts.
