Title: Qualifying for the Race Formerly Known as the Winston
Post by: Cheryl on May 22, 2004, 06:36:04 PM
It was quite interesting to listen to my XM radio for the first time in conjunction with TV during the qualifying show.  It sure opened my eyes. SPEED was away at about 3 commercials for MRN's every one.  Then during qualifying for the main event, TV was WAAAAY behind MRN.  I'd heard that they used a Digital Video Recorder (like a Tivo) for qualifying but this was the first time I'd really seen it in action.  MRN was about 3 cars ahead of TV.  I guess Speed had to do that because of ALL those commercials...
