Live Blogging Sprint Cup Series From Pocono (ESPN - 12PM)


Rain is an issue as ESPN heads into another Sprint Cup Series telecast. Nicole Briscoe will host from the Infield Pit Studio. Brad Daugherty and Rusty Wallace will be alongside.

Allen Bestwick will call the race with Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree from the TV booth. Tim Brewer is in the Tech Garage. Dave Burns, Jamie Little, Vince Welch and Dr. Jerry Punch are the pit reporters.

Bestwick made a big difference in the last telecast. Information gaps were gone, the commentary was smooth and all things were put into a veteran's perspective. It was like having a good referee in a basketball game. You never knew he was there.

ESPN's issues continue to be what battles to highlight, easing back on the promotion of other events and figuring out how to handle the finish. Those topics may have been discussed in meetings this week.

This post will serve to host your comments on the ESPN coverage of the Sprint Cup Series race from Pocono Raceway. To add your TV-related comment, just click on the comments button below.

Rain, rain go away. Looks good at the moment. Scattered showers and 50% chance this afternoon.

Guess who is coming up next on espn?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Got to love Brad!

Daly Planet Editor said...

Future employee?

Carl.......wonder how they finally got him to come on tv?

Gymmie said...

Happy Race Day Planeteers <3

Is this the NA$CAR version of "The Decision" :p

Daly Planet Editor said...

Cannot believe that ESPN did not ask Carl about his NNS plans for 2012.

Anonymous said...

they should of asked carl if he needs some glasses since it looked like he was the one pissing other drivers off instead of the other way around

Lisa Hogan said...

I thought I would check out the Countdown and there was Carl. I'll just come back for the green flag.

Wishing everyone a great race! :)

GinaV24 said...

osbornK,what a crock. I've been to Darlington and Pocono both. Pocono is a bore!

It seems like it always rains a Pocono - makes an even long race longer.

GinaV24 said...

skipping prerace waste of time again today.

back for green flag

glenc1 said...

thanks, Brad (re: Paul Menard)...because we fans are really too stupid to recognize good drivers without your help.

I hate that from the commentators.

sbaker17 said...

I'm trying to watch the pre-race, but
R. Wallace is too much for me. He adds absolutely zero to the content,
"There's no There There"

Daly Planet Editor said...

Double oops!

glenc1 said...

they clearly did not know they were on the air there. They think they deserve a raise?

What is up with this switching around?

alex said...

Pocono drinking game: Take a drink each time someone on TV says "Tricky Triangle".

Glad Dr. JP is doing the BradK interview, his medical background makes for a very informative segment.

Roland said...

Little too up close for me during the Brad interview

Daly Planet Editor said...

Did you hear what they said? Classic!

Daly Planet Editor said...

Rusty: Get us a raise.

Brad: That's what they need to do.

glenc1 said...

and it's a big no no to say how dark it is...

I'm not seeing anything on the radar for a while yet though.

Jonathan said...

LOL yeah that was funny they didnt know they were on air! lol

ESPN having some issues

Anonymous said...

Whats with all these commercial issues!? Its fun to hear the announcers off air though

glenc1 said...

good grief, who is directing this? Usually this is a TNT thing.

I hate the word tricky.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Pretty bad when ESPN cannot go to commercial break. Something big going on back in Bristol.

Roland said...

This is awesome, they CANT go to break! Lets hope they dont fix that problem!

alex said...

Well we complain about having so many commercials, I guess this is a good way to cut back on them.

Anonymous said...

Why don't they acknowledge this problems? Nicole,Brad, and Rusty should know something is wrong since they are only in "commercial" for 5 seconds right?

Brian said...

lets all hope the commercial machine is broke at ESPN, wouldn't that make it a better race to watch!

But seriously, twice in less than an hour guys, someone at the mothership needs to wake up and pay attention.

Anonymous said...

The flubs in master control may be the only reason I'll keep watching the pre-race show. LOL Seriously, Rusty thinks he deserves a raise? And what was Brad blathering on about with Jeff Gordon? Embarrasing. Nicole does very well, have her give us a few news pieces and do the hand-offs to the driver interviews and features. Give HER the raise and let Rusty and Brad go do something else. Nobody GAS what Brad thinks and Rusty is plain annoying.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Guys in TV truck saying ESPN dumped out of commercial and back to them with no warning or countdown.

Boys in Pocono not happy right now. Sounds like a commercial master control issue.

Brian said...

I hope they don't try to add those "lost" commercials back in during the race.

oldnewenglander said...

If I'm working at Pocono, I'm making sure that either Nicole or AB is always ready to go live in case Bristol does that again.

Sophia said...

why is anybody TALKING during Taps??? We think that's terrible.

ESPN FAIL...disrespectful in our opinion.

Vicky D said...

Lots of technical issues if you ask me!

Charlie said...

My Tv just went to commercial right in the middle of them talking.

Daly Planet Editor said...

This is a local ad insert.

Sophia said...

'We're having technical issues' Nicole says then mid sentence we are seeing commercials?? Anybody else? Now seeing local commercial?

THEN back to Rusty mid sentence. Is this TWarner?

Jonathan said...

Yikes this is bad lol

oldnewenglander said...

No sooner than Nicole says they're taking us all the way to the green flag because of technical issues, I get the local commercials inserted by the cable company for pay-per-view events.

Apparently, Bristol cannot run commercials!

Anonymous said...

Just after nicole said theyre staying with us my local cable company took a local commerical break lol

James said...

Just loved the comments about last years crashes, especilly BRADS moaning, did he think it would change?

Charlie said...

Then the commercial was cut short and back to Pocono.

OSBORNK said...

A local ad insert at Dish or on every carrier? What a mess.

glenc1 said...

I have no problem with not acknowledging on track stuff while they're doing other things. Those ceremonies are meant for the people who are there. They don't have to show everything on TV.

Roland said...

hahahahaha "we will take you to the green" 2 seconds later cut to commercial. Thats classic right there

Anonymous said...

Yup, cut to commercial while they talk, then rejoin them unaware. Cant wait for this fiasco to coontinue

alex said...

Lol. "We will take you all the way to the green flag". - within 5 seconds, commercial for the Deadliest catch.

Whew, that was big for ESPN!

sbaker17 said...

This snooze fest will be a true test of AB's ability to carry a broadcast

Jonathan said...

Wooo lets do this

Charlie said...

I think they should worry about this telecast instead of this sprint challenge stuff.

Bobby said...

Loved the National Anthem. I can imagine grabbing my golf clubs, taking Mr. and Dr. LaRoche (she is my long-time voice teacher) with me to the club where Clark is the head pro, and all four of us playing eighteen. That says much when a local golf pro can outsing the pop and country wailers!

Daly Planet Editor said...

Just talked to ESPN. Master Control equipment failure with commercial playback. Entire network integration team moved to another Master Control suite on the fly and got is set up for air.

Should be sorted out now.

Clark's a bit too grandiose for me. But at least he sings it properly.

oldnewenglander said...

The importance of having redundant systems to live broadcasting can never be overstated.

I like the wide shots on Lap 1. Keep it up!

Charlie said...

Lets listen to Harvick in car instead of the start of the race. Nice job.

Oh no not the third ticker. I just tune in.

James said...

HERE WE GO AGAIN, they can not stay on one shot long enough to figure out what you are seeing

James said...

These back of the car camers shot are good for accidents only, who wants to see behind a car?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Lap 8 and "Barracuda!"

Charlie said...

Why a caution. Kyle was not in the way.

ESPN is the best in the business leaving a camera angle while an accident is in progress.

i saw raindrops on Dale Jrs in car on Hot pass boooo no rain

I just don't get Delana Harvick keeping her cap on during the National Anthem. It is so disrespectful at all times, but even more annoying today in light of so many service members losing their lives.

Ladies should be same as men....caps off!!

After all don't we ladies want equal treatment or at least that is what I hear

GinaV24 said...

Anon, that used to be the rule of etiquette that ladies kept their hats on, but with the advent of baseball caps, I think that rule has gone away. At least I always treat my baseball cap as a unisex item and I take it off for the invocation and national anthem.

Charlie said...

Camera work is sure hopping around a lot. No flow to what we are seeing.

West Coast Diane said...

Watching Countdown..using DVR...just saw Carl in booth...now using FF.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Little battle between AB and the trucks seems like.

He called the Kyle spin before they got it and called the Ragan deal when all the director could do was grab an infield camera.

I think the truck guys need to step it up a bit.

GinaV24 said...

Charlie, I so agree, the camera work is bad

§ 301. National anthem rules.




(a) Designation.— The composition consisting of the words and music known as the Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem.

(b) Conduct During Playing.— During a rendition of the national anthem—
(1) when the flag is displayed—
(A) individuals in uniform should give the military salute at the first note of the anthem and maintain that position until the last note;

(B) members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute in the manner provided for individuals in uniform; and

(C) all other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, and men not in uniform, if applicable, should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart; and

(2) when the flag is not displayed, all present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed.

Charlie said...

Commercial, restart, two laps, commercial.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Di, they purposefully did not ask him about his NNS plans for 2012.

All of this Carl stuff should be a great lesson in just how fake the TV stuff you see outside of the actual race coverage can be.

Roush said very clearly Edwards is going to ESPN to call the NNS races in 2012.

I like the wide copter shot. With the forest and the haze, it make Pocono look like its an Island

I dont know who makes the "Motorsports Calendar" graphic but its always wrong. They said the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races from Watkins Glen next weekend are on ESPN2 when they are actually on ESPN.

They had the same issue last year with putting the wrong networks.

GinaV24 said...

Anon, thank you for the official rules. However, I stand by my opinion that baseball caps whether worn by male or female should be removed during the national anthem.

Charlie said...

So does everyone know where your favorite driver is and why.

Anonymous said...

USflag.org spells out the accepted etiquette for the National Anthem. Men are the only ones asked to remove hats, not women. And you do not have to put your hand over your heart, it's also acceptable to stand at attention...which is what I do despite overly-conformist patriotic busy-body bullies who think it's their business to dictate how I show my respect. Those people should use their time during The Anthem to reflect on the sacrifices made to keep this country free, rather than look around for a chance to pass judgement on others.

Anonymous said...

I don't remove my hat if it's attached with bobby pins...I think part of this goes back to that era when ladies did this more often, plus it was considered inappropriate in some circles for women to have their heads bare. Until they change the wording, I will continue to do so. The rule is what it is; Delana did nothing wrong.

Anonymous said...

Charlie, no. Thanks alot, ESPN.

NOTE TO ALAN said...

Note to Worstwick can you
possibly stop YELLING and talking
way too loud ???????????????
I know it is tough with the ego

STUPID

Bestwick is the best part of this broadcast, thank you.

Charlie said...

If a lady has a hat on that is held on with bobby pins and is part of their hairdo I could see why they would not take it off but otherwise I think they should.

Jonathan said...

Now was the coverage that much better last weekend? AB is great but feel the broadcast as a whole could be much better

Anonymous said...

notice the rules also say 'those present'. I once saw a man harass a guy who was *way* outside the track for not taking his hat off. In my mind, he is not 'present' at the ceremony. Same as the taps deal earlier. Who decides how far away you can be? I also heard a man harassed who had simply forgotten. He was a *veteran*; he was just not paying attention. I agree with anon 1:53. We spend too much time judging others (this said on a blog where we judge the networks, I know, I know.)

Charlie said...

One car and two car camera shots on a big, big track.
I would zoom out.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Charlie, the idea of coming back from break and doing a wideshot or aerial and full "scene set" is lost on ESPN.

It's the only way to get a perspective of what is going on and let the analysts give an overview of race strategy.

Anonymous said...

We are at the point in the race where the producer's and director's personal insight, or lack thereof, concerning motor racing begins to have an adverse impact on the quality of television coverage of the race. Now we can tell that those two people do not like or understand racing and it is self-evident.

"If your new to Nascar" - That's something Allen's done for years. I like it honestly, since he's trying to captivate the audience and trying to help make it easier for newcomers to understand.

I wish we had the camera we had at Indianapolis of the front stretch.

Buschseries61 said...

I've been busy & only able to view small pieces of the race. Typical boring Pocono race. Bestwick is finding things to update, productively waste time & keep viewers intersted until the racing picks up.

Green Flag pit stops are the true test for those in the production truck.

Why can't we use some of that Live Dual Feed stuff during green flag pitstops. You know, split-screen. I know you can, ESPN.

KoHoSo said...

Bestwick and the improvement with Andy and DJ are the only things making this race tolerable. While the truck is making bad decisions on camera work, I think the strung-out nature of the racing seems worse than usual at Pocono. I'm getting an itchy trigger finger on my remote to flip back-and-forth to Versus instead of just watching the IndyCar race later off my DVR.

Daly Planet Editor said...

First, Bestwick saved NASCAR Now while he was being used as an NNS pit reporter.

Then, he saved the infield pit studio after Brent Musburger and Suzy Kolber.

Bestwick started the Monday NN roundtable show and still hosts it.

Now, after four years of getting beaten like a dog ESPN puts him in the highest profile role they have at the last minute because of yet another failure.

I admire his spirit and his drive to work hard to make things better.

Is he a NASCAR man? Totally. But I will take that over Jerry or Marty any day.

Up there in the woods. Three maybe sixteen sixteen or eight of them. Walk down up through the path to the woods and the railroad tracks used to be there. I saw one kid who looked sickly. A girl too, with another guy who had a blue hat and a pair of jeans that were loose fitting. On that path the river is really close. People have parties on the banks, but these kids who walk on the path walk a long way. They walk through there. I don't think they're walking for the sake of seeing a deer. Nope.

glenc1 said...

good grief, let's show canned interviews during green flag racing. Of course, if you show it one car at a time.....you might as well do that.

Nope Walt. Sorry to inform you but they're going there to get high man. Maybe the long pond cops should take a hike someday and watch em and and and noooooooo wait, I mean, they can't do that cause its not their territory but that hasn't stopped em in the past right?

I have no problem with Allen saying "if you're new to NASCAR" at least he doesn't explain tires are round and go on the bottom.

Anon, it helps to have a solution in mind when talking about a problem. I try to do that.

If you think someone else should be in the booth, free to make your case.

It's just TV!

Ken-Michigan said...

Rain very close

GinaV24 said...

JD, bravo on your commentary about Allen! I totally agree.

Roland said...

Idea: instead of having the pit reporter yell at the crew chief and hope he heard the reporter, how bout write the question down on paper and hold it up off to the side so the crew chief knows what the reporter asked. I was sitting here during the Mike Ford interview thinking to myself "really? its 2011 and we still have this problem?"

I tell you one thing tho, if Larry Mac was on this broadcast we would know the weather situation. Instead we have to bother the crew chiefs while their trying to do their jobs to ask them something Tim Brewer should be all over.

That being said those are the only 2 complaints I have about this broadcast so far. Very solid work.

Al said...

Rain drops now on TV cameras.

glenc1 said...

Gina, & Adam, AB's 'if you're new' is fine with me also....he always make it quick; that's the key.

Buschseries61 said...

lol, the Bestwick anon is more entertaining than the race.

But seriously, you could have the best announcing team ever here and this would still be boring. ESPN looks like they are trying to find racing, but there's nothing.

Time to get back to work, good luck getting through the next 100+ laps everyone!

OSBORNK said...

I once had a manager that gave me good advice. He said I should never come to him with a problem unless I had a proposed solution or a well thought out idea as to how to solve the problem. I suggest that those that complain about the talking heads come up with an alternative before griping.

GinaV24 said...

they may be racing to halfway, but if they wreck half the field because it's raining, will that make them happy?

GinaV24 said...

Busch, they always pull a big crowd which I don't know why because I went twice and will never go again! Boring at the track, better to watch it on TV

Anonymous said...

The solution is Mike Joy.

Daly Planet Editor said...

NASCAR trying to get to halfway, radio guys say it is raining on them. Spotters too.

KoHoSo said...

This is why it's so key to have a good announcing crew when the event isn't exciting in and of itself. It's like the old days of MNF when many would stay tuned in during a blowout just to hear what Cosell and Dandy Don might say...Madden in his prime would be another example.

Anon/J said...

Fine, Osbourne - radio announcers (see Bestwick for results) and committed, passionate individuals running the cameras.

Leave the money out of it - why ESPN et al take bribes is totally beyond me...costing them a lot more in enraged viewers.

There. Problem solved. Barely.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Mike has an existing contract with FOX. We went through this earlier on the NNS race and the only other option for ESPN was Dave Moody!

Could you see him with Schrader and Craven on the NNS races?

GinaV24 said...

Except that Mike Joy doesn't get to call the race on Fox any more. That's DW's job.

Moody is good on the radio, but I would never take him over Allen for TV.

I know Joy has a contract with Fox-but just saying he could save this train wreck.

longtimeracefan said...

To the anonymous poster who keeps complaining about Bestwick, is that you Marty?

Daly Planet Editor said...

Basically, ESPN is looking for a back-up for AB and for the stand-alone NNS races and the ones from Sept-Nov.

Daly Planet Editor said...

Remember they already gave Dave Burns and Vince Welch a shot and that did not work out at all.

glenc1 said...

I find nothing monotonous about AB's voice...in fact, I've always found it just right as far as announcing goes. Right tone, right speed, right amount of excitement (going back to his radio days.)

We never all agree on any one guy though. Even DW has fans. :)

MikeC said...

When I watch Pocono it reminds me of the year Kasey Kahne had that wreck against the fence a few years back. It was boring up to that point and then on the Sirius Post Race show the hosts were saying "that was just one incident....this was an exciting race. It was jam-packed with action." I tried calling in to ask them to cite examples of the other exciting pieces of action, but they ran out of time before I could get on.

Roadgeek Adam said...

Thank lord in heaven a caution. And its not mystery debris :)
