Let us know how you think TNT did with the Busch Broadcast from New Hampshire on Saturday.

I was very relieved to see TNT put a darker background behind the running order...I could actually read it today!  Still want to know what happened to putting the numbers of the cars that pit in a different color...helped me keep track of things.  With everything that happened, I thought they did a decent job.  And they didn't get screeching and hollering the whole time.  I could pay attention to the race.

It was a pretty good broadcast.  Like Sally, I liked the darker background on the ticker at the top.  I think they timed their commercials well although there were a lot of them.  I think Alan is aware of what fans like and he seemed to make several apologies for not getting everything done.  I do not miss DW at all.

Sally,

Because we didn't have any green-flag pit stops, the drivers were not highlighted in yellow on the scoring ticker. They never highlight them after cautions.

Thanks.  I forgot about that with the cautions.  Duh.

Although we didn't have any scheduled green-flag pit stops at New Hampshire, we will likely find out this Sunday whether TNT does highlight them or not, since Pocono is known for long green-flag runs.

Yup.  There will probably only be 15 cars left on the lead lap...after the Pity Passes, of course!
