Title: Ricky Craven Great as Commentator
Post by: Cheryl on April 06, 2010, 01:41:09 PM
I really, really enjoyed Ricky Craven on the Nationwide broadcast from Nashville on Saturday!  He was low-key without all the hype we see from so many people in the booth these days, yet provided well-thoughtout and interesting insight from a drivers perspective.  IMHO, ESPN could easily replace Jarrett with Craven.  Jarrett just has too much of that frantic fast-talk going for my tastes.  And I won't even start on Marty Reid.  He's lowered the hype-meter a bit, but still rachets it up from time to time.

Craven just seems like the voice of reason in the sea of insanity we hear from Fox and ESPN these days.

I already see a lot of Ricky on the NASCAR Now roundtable shows, and now after a solid performance last week at Nashville, I look forward to hearing more from him.  Great job!
