NASCAR on TNT has a lot of work to do

When NASCAR first broke up the TV coverage of its races, FOX, TNT and ESPN came out the winners.  FOX took the first part of the 2012 NASCAR season and Sunday TNT took over with the first of six races it will broadcast this season.

If the coverage of Sunday’s race at Pocono by TNT is any indication of things to come for the next five races, TNT has a lot of work to do.  The booth announcers, led by Adam Alexander seemed disjointed and more than once talked over each other. Analysts Kyle Petty and Wally Dallenbach sounded as though they were talking and joking among each other more than the fans.

The pit road crew consisted of newby Chris Neville, with veterans Ralph Sheheen, Marty Snider, and Matt Yocum. At times the direction from behind the scenes seemed to be as disjointed as the booth; prior to the green flag the booth threw to Marty Snider, the camera instead was focused on a silent and increasingly embarrassed looking Ralph Sheheen.
