Live Blogging Mods and Trucks From Bristol (SPEED - 6PM ET)

It's one of the most interesting days of the year on SPEED. Viewers get to see the NASCAR Modifieds in a combined North and South Series show before the Camping World Trucks take to the high banks of the Bristol Motor Speedway.

Mike Joy and Dick Berggren call the Modified action that includes Ryan Newman and an all-star cast of Mod regulars at 6PM ET. This race is so very different that it is a hit every season. Joy and Berggren both make the entire race exciting from start to finish.

The Camping World Trucks are next with Rick Allen, Phil Parsons and Michael Waltrip on the race call. Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander are on pit road. Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski and Elliott Sadler are crossing over to race in the series and there is quite a variety of drivers in the field.

The new pavement at Bristol allows the trucks to have two racing grooves and that is very important for this series. The leaders are going to begin lapping quickly and the difference between the experienced and non-experienced drivers is going to show-up quickly.

Update: News from SPEED is that Kyle Busch is going to be moved to the rear of the field after having to change engines. That is going to put a whole new storyline into play for the TV network as Busch, who was on the pole, moves through the field.
