Same here...if Allen Bestwick reunited with TNT first. They're competent now, but they were amazing with him in the booth.

Here's how I see it going in terms of excitement:

Infineon
Daytona
Michigan
Pocono
New Hampshire
Kensucky

Pocono typically sucks, but I think this repave job should make it interesting.

Should be called the Pocono 400 presneted by #TwitterSucks
Kurt Busch would probably get replaced by Elliott Sadler, Nationwide has the weekend off so there's not problem with scheduling.
I'm thinking the winner might be a surprise, don't know why but I'm thinking Montoya. He's been good here.

Race should probably be called the Dr. Joseph Mattioli 400. I mean Doc made Pocono what it is today, and it's the first race that he won't be there to see.

Thank you. You were actually the first person to actually realize that. lol. I was on another forum site and everyone kept saying that James Finch should have Vickers drive for him. Of course, he's obviously competing in the 24 hour race this weekend. Fail

TNT starts NASCAR coverage at Pocono: Turner Sports is geared up for its 30th year of NASCAR coverage with TNT's six-race NASCAR Sprint Cup Series set to begin Sunday, June 10, at noon ET from Pocono Raceway. TNT's NASCAR coverage will once again feature analysis by Kyle Petty and Wally Dallenbach with play-by-play commentator Adam Alexander expanding his role this season. Alexander will add pre-race hosting responsibilities this year, joined by analysts Petty and Larry McReynolds. TNT's reporters will include: Ralph Sheheen, Marty Snider, Matt Yocum and Chris Neville.
TNT's coverage also will include several production enhancements this year including a weekly "NASCAR Generations" segment during the Countdown to Green pre-race show, a new on-set touch screen application, and broader social media integration. Additionally, McReynolds will roll out a customized, unique broadcast unit that will house his very own studio, as well as his base location to provide analysis using a cut-away display car.
TNT's "NASCAR Generations" is a segment which will air during the one-hour Countdown to Green each week featuring a panel discussion hosted by Alexander with five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, legendary NASCAR champions Ned Jarrett and Bill Elliott, as well as TNT NASCAR analysts McReynolds and Petty.(TNT Sports)(6-6-2012)

Apparently NASCAR actually considered restrictor plates for this weekend since they're averaging laps of ~180 mph and hitting 212+ mph at the end of the front straight. Luckily, they shot it down and confirmed that they won't ruin the race.

Epic.

Restrictor plates at Pocono would = passes on only the frontstretch

They'll think about putting restrictor plates on non-restrictor plate tracks, then someone will say;
"Hey, do you remember the New Hampshire Cup race in 2000?"
"Yeah, what about it?"
"Do you remember what happened?"
"Oh yeah, scratch that idea."

The worst coverage for the worst stretch of races. I guess that's an opinion. I've never really liked TNT, except I did like the Bestwick, Parsons, and Dallenbach trio. I'm glad they only have six races now.

That was right after the Adam Petty crash, IIRC. They had a reason for the plates.

yep, but the one thing that confuses me is that they've shortened the race to 160 laps. Sprint Cup races usually last between 2 1/2 to 3 Hours but that may change though on Sunday.

42 of 44 cars have so far today run at least one lap that is faster than the track qualifying record. Only Tony Raines and Reed Sorenson have not.

Restrictor plates at Pocono would = passes on only the frontstretch

So just a normal Pocono race then?

yep, but the one thing that confuses me is that they've shortened the race to 160 laps. Sprint Cup races usually last between 2 1/2 to 3 Hours but that may change though on Sunday.
Unless there is over 150 green flag laps it'll still be between that time frame.

Stacy Compton making his first start in Cup since the 2003 Pepsi 400, when he ran for Morgan-McClure. Sadly, Compton will be SnPing, most likely.
