Fox just said "stay tuned to SPEED" and that the rain-delayed truck race will be "shown in it's entirety."  I'm betting, SPEED shows their scheduled Cup practice and Busch quals and then puts the taped truck race up against ESPN2's coverage of the Busch race from Charlotte. 

Edit:  If anyone reads about or hears about the truck results on the Internet (before it is shown on TV), please put "SPOILER" in any posts you might make here.

Thanks!

I stand corrected.   Embarrassed  I was quite surprised that SPEED chose to show taped programming at 8 p.m. and saved the race for 11 p.m.  We watched it this morning, but I'll talk about that under Race Talk.

Thank you, Ken!  Even though I have a tape of the Ohio 250 from yesterday's rebroadcast, I still wanted to know how at what time SPEED Channel showed the race on Saturday, once it was bumped from Fox due to the commitment to show Major League Baseball on Fox.

Taped coverage is not unprecedented.  In 2005, FX delayed the rescheduled Busch Series 300-miler from Nashville until after Fox aired the Pocono 500.

Since we are talking Speed, I would like to comment here on the broadcast.  I almost turned it off because Phil came out talking with all the hyperness that he apparently picked up from when Mikey was in the booth with him.  I could not believe he was sounding so much like that.  Did anyone else pick up on his hype and voice inflections?  Just curious...
