Thursday's TV Schedule can be found here.

The primary feature of the show was a piece where Ray Dunlap interviewed former series champion Ted Musgrave to see what he's up these days. In short, he's completely disconnected from motorsports. Other than a period of time last year when he was spotting for Kyle Busch Motorsports, Musgrave doesn't go to the track anymore. It's debatable whether he watches the races or not (this was not broached during the piece). He's settled into a life where he works when he feels like it and isn't on anyone's schedule. In short, he's comfortable now. Great.
Overall, the race broadcast was far too intensely focused on the front of the field for my liking. When I say that a race needs to be more inclusive, I'm not just saying to throw up a battle for 37th that's dozens of laps behind the race. FOX did that once during the 2009 Aaron's 499. That was rather weak. I'm saying for the broadcast to show action from throughout the field, to cover as many stories as they possibly can. We didn't get that Saturday and we lost out as a result.

From Beyond the Cockpit: Juan Pablo Montoya Has Eyes Set on Future Despite Colorful Past
"Before the repave it was a lot of fun. It was really bumpy, you used to bottom-out really hard and it made the car really skid around a lot. It just made it fun. After they repaved it, it just became, like, not even a corner." - Juan Pablo Montoya on Eau Rouge.

Q: The 1997 Mountain Dew Southern 500 is best known for Jeff Gordon winning the Winston Million and Dale Earnhardt's mystery ailment. The day was also pretty miserable for Rusty Wallace, who was done almost as soon as the race started. What happened?
