NASCAR on FOX - WEEK 2: BUSCH SERIES RACING FROM MEXICO CITY, PRESENTED BY CHEVROLET: NASCAR takes its show south of the border as Busch Series racing heads to Mexico City this Sunday, March 5 (2:00 PM ET) from Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. For the second straight year, the Busch Series' best, including Nextel Cup stars Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick, Michael Waltrip, and Kyle Busch, as well as hometown favorites Jorge Goeters and Adrian Fernandez maneuver the track's 2.5-mile road course. Coverage begins Sunday at 2:00 PM ET with up-to-the-minute reports and live interviews with the drivers, crewmen and officials shaping the day's action. At 2:20 PM ET, the green flag drops with NASCAR legend Darrell Waltrip, race announcer Mike Joy, and analyst Larry McReynolds calling the action. LARRY MAC: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED IN MEXICO CITY: With over 30 years of experience as a crew chief and broadcaster, NASCAR on FOX analyst Larry McReynolds has seen just about everything. As FOX Sports heads south of the border this weekend to cover Sunday's 2:00 PM ET Busch Series race from Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City, he expects the unexpected in terms of team strategy. "As we've seen at Watkins Glen, Sonoma and even Mexico City, someone is going to roll the dice on strategy," said McReynolds. "Sometimes that's not necessarily what wins the race, but it ends up giving a driver that doesn't have a top-10 car a top-five finish. We've seen that a lot and it's just due to road racing strategy, including short-pitting." NASCAR ON FOX SCORES IN PRIME TIME VS. OLYMPICS: FOX Sports' season-opening NASCAR race, the Auto Club 500 from California Speedway, posted an impressive 7.4/14 national rating (12.5 million viewers) this past Sunday (2/26), according to figures released today by Nielsen Media Research. Sunday's 7.4/14 is a sharp +17% improvement over the last NASCAR on FOX race to go head-to-head with the Winter Games (6.3/15 for Rockingham in 2002 vs. Salt Lake City). The prime time portion of the race (7:00 - 7:47 PM ET) earned an 8.1/14, taking top honors in the 7:00-8:00 PM ET hour, despite competition from NBC's closing ceremonies from Turin.
