The above were certainly the Classic Booth. They talked what was going on at the time and didn't spend most of the race griping about certain drivers or their own record which every one knew anyway. They gave credit where it was due but didn't put their opinion in where it wasn't necessary. I don't think NASCAR knows or cares what the fans don't like about most of the reporting. Some of it is like fingernails scratching a black board. We'll never see the good ole days unless they bring in another Classic Booth like Bob, Ned, and Benny. My favorite above all that broadcast now is Allen Bestwick. He was on the broadcast of Indy in Belle Isle located near Detroit last weekend.

I read someplace where Bestwick will no longer be doing the Nascar stuff and will concentrate on open wheel instead. Will see if I can locate the article.

Here is the article from Feb 2014 about Allen Bestwick. Found it on another board I go to. NP stealing it I put 14Smokem's jokes on their board. Easy going bunch.



Allen Bestwick has agreed to a new multi-year deal with ESPN and will become lap-by-lap announcer for ABC's telecasts of the IndyCar Series, including the Indianapolis 500, in 2014. The veteran broadcaster also will branch into other sports beginning in 2015.

Bestwick, who has been part of ESPN's NASCAR coverage since 2007, will continue as the anchor for the network's NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series telecasts in 2014, the final year of ESPN's contract to televise live NASCAR racing. In 2015, in addition to IndyCar Series racing, Bestwick also will call play-by-play on college football telecasts for ESPN, a variety of collegiate sports on the upcoming SEC Network, and on ESPN interactive television productions of golf and tennis. "Allen Bestwick has been a valuable contributor to our NASCAR coverage the past seven years and we're delighted that he will be bringing his versatility and talents to our IndyCar telecasts as well as other sports for years to come," said John Wildhack, ESPN executive vice president, programming and production.

Though closely associated with motorsports for most of his 27 years in broadcasting, Bestwick also has called football, track and field and hockey, among other sports, during his career. He worked a college football game for ESPN in November.

ESPN's NASCAR coverage for 2013 begins with the NASCAR Nationwide Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 22, with telecasts of the final 17 NASCAR Sprint Cup races beginning July 27 at Indianapolis.

On May 25, ABC will televise the Indianapolis 500 for the 50th consecutive year. The network also will televise four other IndyCar Series races as well as Indianapolis 500 qualifications. Coverage begins with the March 30 season opener in St. Petersburg, Fla.
