Here we go! Big night for SPEED as the network produces the Nationwide Series race from Richmond International Raceway.
It will be Rick Allen calling the action with Darrell and Michael Waltrip in the TV booth. Krista Voda, Ray Dunlap and Hermie Sadler are the pit road reporters.
ESPN is involved in NFL Draft coverage and ESPN and ABC are also booked. NASCAR brokered a deal to get the race over to SPEED, knowing that network was already very familiar to NASCAR fans.
The telecast promises to be very different from the ESPN presentations. SPEED will focus on the race, as opposed to the Sprint Cup Series emphasis that has been an ESPN pattern.
The evening will also have a live and free RaceBuddy over at NASCAR.com and many of the SPEED personalities will be tweeting all night long during the race. Twitter has proven to be a great outlet for live updates on NASCAR news.
