  • 2006 NASCAR on FOX schedule
  • A year away from being the home to the NASCAR Nextel All-Star Challenge, SPEED already is looking for ways to put the exclamation point on two monster weekends of May racing from Charlotte, N.C., kicking off this year's coverage with a party at the lake home of SPEED broadcaster and former NASCAR Nextel Cup Series crew chief Larry McReynolds. "SPEED is fired up about getting the NASCAR Nextel All-Star Challenge, beginning in 2007," said Hunter Nickell, SPEED EVP & General Manager. "We are so excited, that we've decided to get started a year early, looking at ways to elevate the Charlotte race weeks coverage on SPEED ... we simply want to let the NASCAR fans know that we realize how cool this event is and that they can count on SPEED for the absolute best coverage the All-Star week has ever seen." A one-hour special, entitled Larry Mac's All-Star BBQ, will air May 18 at 8 p.m. ET, with drop-in guests from all over the world of NASCAR. On May 19, SPEED will carry coverage from Lowe's Motor Speedway from noon until midnight ET, with all but one hour being aired live, beginning with coverage of the final practice for the NASCAR Nextel All-Star Challenge. Friday's coverage will also include NASCAR Nextel Cup Series qualifying, as well as qualifying for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, with the highlight of the evening being live and exclusive coverage of the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at 8:30 p.m. ET. "There's nothing quite like a home game," said Rick Miner, SPEED SVP of Programming & Production. "While the coverage of every NASCAR event is a priority at SPEED, when you are playing at home, you really want to shine." On May 20, SPEED will air the NASCAR Nextel Pit Crew Challenge at 4 p.m., followed by Jimmy Spencer, Kenny Wallace, John Roberts and Wendy Venturini and a special All-Star edition of the red-hot NASCAR RaceDay, the ultimate NASCAR pre-race show. The crew will return for NASCAR Victory Lane at 11 p.m. ET, following the All-Star Race. "We have back-to-back major events right in our backyard," said Chris Long, SPEED VP of Studio Production. "Most of the teams are in Charlotte, the drivers live in Charlotte, the NASCAR Hall of Fame will be in Charlotte and SPEED is in Charlotte. The city is running on all cylinders and SPEED cameras will be everywhere for two weeks, making sure fans don't miss a thing." SPEED will return with live coverage from Charlotte on May 25, as teams begin preparation for the Coca-Cola 600, beginning with NASCAR Live! at 6 p.m. ET. SPEED also will produce Backstage Pass segments for several of its shows, taking viewers behind the scenes at various venues all weekend. Larry McReynolds, Jeff Hammond, Steve Byrnes and a special guest panelist will whip up the Charlotte Speed Street crowd on May 26 at 7 p.m. with Trackside. And on May 28, the NASCAR RaceDay team returns to preview the famed Coca-Cola 600. SPEED, celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2006, is the nation's first and foremost cable network dedicated to motor sports and the passion for everything automotive. From racing to restoration, motorcycles to movies, SPEED delivers quality programming from the track to the garage. Now available in more than 71 million homes in North America, SPEED is among the fastest growing sports cable networks in the country, the home to NASCAR TV and an industry leader in interactive TV, video on-demand, mobile initiatives and broadband services.
