NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES RACING FROM BRISTOL

  • Network/When: FOX, Sunday, March 16  (1:00 PM ET)

·         Talent: Mike Joy leads the NASCAR on FOX booth with analysis from NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip and former crew chief Larry McReynolds. Chris Myers hosts alongside Michael Waltrip with pit reports from Steve Byrnes, Jeff Hammond, Krista Voda and Matt Yocum.

 

LARRY MCREYNOLDS ON WHETHER SAFETY CONCERNS PRECIPITATED NASCAR MAKING MODIFICATIONS TO QUALIFYING PROCEDURES THIS WEEK: “Safety probably was the main issue, but I think competition also played a role. Bristol is a half-mile track and we’d have 45 or 46 drivers on the first qualifying run with some trying to cool their cars down by running slowly. Martinsville, though, would have been an even bigger issue. Bristol at least has an apron, but Martinsville doesn’t. The only way to run around and cool the car down at Martinsville is by running the groove. We saw some really close calls in Las Vegas with cars running 180 or 190 miles-per-hour and some running 45 or 50 miles-per-hour to cool down their cars. An alternative of simply taking tape off the grille sounds simple, but the three different manufacturer makes have three different grille openings, which could pose a bit of an advantage depending on the manufacturer. So, I could understand why that probably wasn’t even a consideration in NASCAR’s mind. It sounded simple, but it wasn’t the right fix because the openings are different. You couldn’t let one manufacturer be at a disadvantage because of a grille opening.”

 

DARRELL WALTRIP ON PAUL WOLFE AND HIS PAIRING WITH BRAD KESELOWSKI: “I like a gambling man. When it comes to sitting on that pit box, I don’t want a guy who says ‘We’ll do what everybody else does.’ If you think back to the first race he and Brad (Keselowski) won together, it was at Kansas. And how did they win it? He was running gas mileage, kicking it out of gear and coasting off into the corner. So, Paul (Wolfe) and Brad (Keselowski) – that’s the Chad (Knaus) and Jimmie (Johnson) on the horizon.”

 

LARRY MCREYNOLDS ON THE BEST TEAM SO FAR IN 2014: “When I look at the first three races, Hendrick Motorsports looks like they have their arms around it. They placed all four drivers in the top nine at Las Vegas. But Penske Racing has two drivers, three races, six attempts, two poles, four front row starts and five out of six top-five finishes. In the early going of the season, Penske Racing looks like they have their arms around 2014.”

 

DARRELL WALTRIP ON THE FAVORITE TO WIN AT BRISTOL: “Bristol is one of those tracks that because of the concrete, it doesn’t change setup-wise. It doesn’t matter as much what they do to the cars but more about who likes Bristol and is good there. Both Busches love it. It could be a Kyle (Busch) weekend. It’s a good Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick track. I don’t see any surprises. The guys who were pretty good at Phoenix probably will be good at Bristol. If I had to pick a favorite, I’d say Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch. They could run very well. And the way Brad Keselowski has run the first three races, he easily could be in the mix.”

·         Network/When: FOX Sports 1, Saturday, March 15 (11:30 PM ET, SDD; replays Sunday, March 16 on FOX Sports 1 at 2:00 PM ET and FOX Sports 2 at 9:00 PM ET; available to subscribers on FOX Sports GO)

·         Talent: Ralph Sheheen, Jeff Emig, Kevin Windham, Jenny Taft

·         This Week: According to Sheheen, Villopoto is en route to being one of the greatest of all time. “Without question Ryan is a first ballot Hall-of-Famer. His numbers already are impressive and he isn't done yet. If he wins his fourth consecutive title this year, that puts him right with Jeremy McGrath as the only riders to win four championships in a row. Now, with four Daytona Supercross by Honda wins, he ties Jeff Stanton for second on the all-time win list, and is one behind all-time Daytona Supercross winner Ricky Carmichael, who has five." Rolling into Detroit this weekend, Sheheen expects the track to add a little excitement to the FOX Sports 1 program: “Detroit has had a long history with supercross, dating back to a very successful run of dates at the old Pontiac Superdome. For the return of the series to the Motor City, the track builders are taking the track right up into the grandstands, which should be very exciting for both the racers and the fans."
