SPEED Has Friday Covered From Pocono

Things are underway at noon ET from Pocono and all the Friday action is on SPEED.

The trio of Steve Byrnes, Jeff Hammond and Larry McReynolds are in for a long day. They call practice at noon, qualifying at 3:30PM and then handle Trackside Friday night at 7PM. Bob Dillner and Wendy Venturini are the reporters for the practice and qualifying. Elliott Sadler joins Trackside as a panelist.

Darrell Waltrip is back again on SPEED. This campaign to raise Waltrip's profile on the network is assisted by the fact that his brother, Michael, is out of the country. The senior Waltrip will step in for the truck series and ARCA coverage.

He will be joining Rick Allen and Phil Parsons who will call the truck series practice at 5:30PM in advance of the Saturday race. Ray Dunlap and Adam Alexander are reporting for the trucks while Wendy Venturini and Jim Tretow will handle ARCA.

Sandwiched in between the action on the track will be two editions of NASCAR Live at 1:30 and 3:00PM. This is a good little show to keep fans up to date on the happenings at the track. John Roberts and Randy Pemberton will be on the SPEED Stage with Bob Dillner and Hermie Sadler reporting from the garage area.

ESPN2 has lots of golf coverage on Friday, so there is no NASCAR Now and no other coverage of the sport. The 7:00PM Saturday night coverage of the Nationwide Series race is the next time ESPN comes back to NASCAR.
