Thanks, Cheryl.  I didn't realize how close coverage was scheduled.

Well, it is tape-delayed until the evening, so I don't know.  Plus with Fox/Speed, there will be lots of commentary from their crew, so it will probably be more of a highlight show I'm sure.

In the past I think they've done like a recap show, so I'm assuming it'll be like that this year.

Ken, can't forget those sponsors.  After all, they are in control of not only who drives for a team but for the number (28) as well now  police Just like the gestapo

I recorded the show last night in order to ff through commercials.  They had a very nice tribute and bio for Bobby Hamilton at the start.

John Roberts hosted and Jeff Hammond was live with him.  All they really did was show us a few shots of cars coming out on the track, a few quotes from Dave Blaney.  Then they showed a graphic of the testing speeds (which I'd already gotten off Jayski).  Granted the test was cancelled because of rain, but there really wasn't much coverage.  Then Larry Mac was showing us differences in the COT via taped feature.  They used a Chevy "Impala" which looked a bit better to me than some of the COT's we've seen so far.  He pointed out what I've been saying - that the wing is similar to what the Superbirds used back in the 70s.

Overall, it was a decent show to get your racing fix after so long.  More a general news show than covering the actual testing (which was okay with me).  I set a Season Pass on Tivo to record it every night, but not sure if I'll watch all of them or not.
