It's an awkward day for everyone as the time change lost folks one hour of sleep. The Sprint Cup Series is at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and goes on-air at 2:30PM. The green flag is 3:15PM and there is also live radio streaming at goprn.com today.
SPEED handles the pre-pre-race programming with RaceDay starting at 12:30PM ET. John Roberts has Larry McReynolds, Kyle Petty and Kenny Wallace on the expert panel. Wendy Venturini, Matt Clark and Rutledge Wood are the reporters.
FOX has Chris Myers, Michael and Darrell Waltrip on the pre-race show. Keep an eye on whether or not the trio moves outside like FOX did last year. Between Daytona weather and the small track at Phoenix, we have not seen the FOX pre-race team outdoors yet.
Mike Joy will call the race with the senior Waltrip and Larry McReynolds. On pit road are Matt Yocum, Krista Voda, Steve Byrnes and Dick Berggren. Jeff Hammond will once again be a roving reporter.
We will be taking your comments on Twitter during the race on the TV coverage. Immediately after the race, there will be a post up here for your long-form comments.
