In-Progress at Milwaukee: Nationwide Series on ESPN2

Dale Jarrett has not yet returned to the ESPN racing line-up, so once again the Nationwide Series race on ESPN2 will feature Rusty Wallace as the Lead Analyst.

Tonight from the Milwaukee Mile, it will be Wallace leading-off the program when he joins Allen Bestwick and Brad Daugherty in the Infield Pit Studio for the NASCAR Countdown pre-race show at 8PM Eastern Time.

Look for the pre-race program to address a lot of issues including the Joey Logano situation at Gibbs Racing and the rumors that he will be in a Cup car for 2009. Daugherty has to comment on the recent developments in the Grant lawsuit and the interview that the former NASCAR official gave this week. Why Grant did not choose to speak to Daugherty is certainly an interesting issue.

Once underway, Jerry Punch will call the action with Wallace and Andy Petree in the booth. Down on pit road will be Dave Burns, Mike Massaro and Shannon Spake. Tim Brewer will be on-scene in the Tech Center for updates.

This is a grinding, flat track with tough action and usually some upset tempers. With only a handful of Sprint Cup drivers doing double-duty, the regulars of the Nationwide Series should get an opportunity to shine.

There has been a fatal accident in the NHRA event this weekend. To keep the comments and links separate from the NASCAR page, this will be the link page for that topic.
