It's a night time tripleheader this holiday weekend from the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Tonight it's the Camping World Trucks kicking off the racing action. Ricky Carmichael is on the pole.
SPEED has it's own production team for these races and the vibe is old school. Atlanta's high speeds should leave only a handful of trucks actually running for the win, so it's going to be a challenge to keep it interesting from start to finish.
The trucks are in a tough spot these days with sponsorship and the start and park contingent for high speed races like this has been large. Keep an eye on who leaves the track in the early going and how SPEED decides to relate those facts on the air.
Krista Voda hosts the pre-race show. Rick Allen, Micheal Waltrip and Phil Parsons will call the race. Hermie Sadler and Ray Dunlap will report from pit road.
