Title: 9:00 AM ET For Busch Race
Post by: BrettBaldeck on July 07, 2007, 03:10:49 AM
Wow. A 9:00 AM ET start time for the NASCAR Busch Series tomorrow morning. I feel bad for your west coasters. I believe the start time is so early due to 2 reasons. One, They are expecting rain in the afternoon/night tomorrow and two they didnt want to move a busch race to Sunday since there is always a possiblity the cup race can we postponed as well.

So 9:00 On ESPN2. I set my alarm for 8:00 so I can get ready lol. I must say ESPN did a fairly good job keeping us entertained during the rain. I love Allen Bestwick in the pit studio. Keep him there I say.

This will make for a long day for the all the double duty drivers.  Also, I wonder if Stewart will wake up in time to run the race.

Another reason for the 9 a.m. start was not to interfere with the announcement of the new "Sprint Cup" name that happened later that afternoon.

6am out here.  I taped and watched later.  Fast forwarded a lot and it made for a very short race.

So did I, Vivian.  It took a little more than two hours in real time, but it seemed like a blink of an eye when I played it back.
