 Fridays USA Today had a whole section devoted to NA$CAR's playoff. One article was about the happenings in the ESPN production trailer at Richmond. This is one paragraph:

 " As the laps dwindle and the drama builds, Goldberg pleads for emotion from his announcers. He urges them to deliver the point that Harvick is having issues with overheating breaks. Above all, he wants them to interject personality and heighten the drama.
 "It's about a championship being at stake," he reminds them"

I tuned in to watch a Nationwide race and all I got was Danica.

Thanks for the quotes, Brian!  Not much of a surprise though that the producers are trying to create excitement.  This seems to be the theme ever since Fox starting covering racing in 2001.  Too bad we'll probably never see the days again where the racing was exciting enough, without the broadcast team trying to interject fake excitement. Sad

Yeah.  Just like "reality" television. Sad

Nascar and the media's credo:  Make it exciting....even if it isn't.  What is actually happening on the track has no bearing on what we want people to know.
