"SPEED will begin its NASCAR season with coverage of Preseason Thunder testing days at 7 p.m. ET on Jan. 8. The 30-minute highlight shows will feature testing coverage from the Nextel Cup, Busch and Craftsman Truck series sessions at Daytona International Speedway, giving NASCAR fans their first looks at new drivers, new teams and new racecars.

"This is going to be a huge year for SPEED and NASCAR fans," said Hunter Nickell, SPEED Executive VP and General Manager. "High-profile events, including the Duel 150's and the NASCAR Nextel All-Star Challenge come to SPEED for the first time.

"SPEED continues as the home to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and we'll continue to deliver the most experienced and entertaining NASCAR event coverage every weekend of the entire season."

NASCAR testing coverage will lead into SPEED's 12-day Daytona Speedweeks program schedule, highlighted by livecoverage of the Gatorade Duels repeated in prime time, the Truck Series season opener, the inaugural SPEED Performance Awards, the Bud Shootout Drawing, the ARCA season opener and the return of popular SPEED shows, including NASCAR RaceDay, Trackside, NASCAR Live!, Wind Tunnel, Tradin' Paint, NASCAR Performance, Inside Nextel Cup, NASCAR Victory Lane, The SPEED Report and the debut of the SPEED Road Tour Challenge.

"NASCAR RaceDay was a big hit for SPEED last year," Nickell added. "We took a big-event, fan-first approach to our live, at-track programming and people responded in a big way. Ratings for the show were up 16 percent overall and nearly 30 percent with the younger audiences.

"We can't wait to introduce the first SPEED Performer of the Year, the four fans participating in the Road Tour Challenge and some new wrinkles to our SPEED stage shows."

Beginning Jan. 29, SPEED also will cover NASCAR test sessions from Las Vegas Motor Speedway."

Yep, I can't wait either! Just thinking of the 150's at Daytona gets me pumped. Heck, even testing! crazy.gif

I like the fact that they're going to be covering some testing. Gives me something to watch and look forward to. That's why I said "Turn 3"....headed down the back stretch of the off-season which is quickly coming to the finish line for the start-up of the regular season! Bring it on! cool.gif

    • First snapper yesterday. It was looking for Leech!     Was that Leech?
    • Baked taters  grilled pork chops and Califlower  . Had better Califlower though. 
    • Sunset last night on Burntside lake.    
    • Just don’t know where else to put this ray of hope.
    • We get eggs from locals who have chickens.  The difference in shelf life between washed and unwashed eggs was weird the first time I heard it.  Months for unwashed; maybe a month for washed.   Farm fresh is a fair amount different than from the grocery store.  Bigger yolks and thinner shells are two of the more noticeable differences.  I had my first red yolk eggs a few weeks ago.  Kinda freaked me out but it’s no big deal really.
    • Nature is pretty rad.    I think it's cool the eggs can just sit there for some time.  Especially because it can get quite cold.   There are sometimes a dud or two and I first thought it might be because they froze before mom incubated them but they always kick off.  When I have done post mortem examinations of the duds they always have almost completely developed ducklings inside.  I've never found one that was just some yolk.
    • No mosquitos yet, plenty of flies the last couple of days and here is my first spider outside of the house!    
    • I’ve never studied it but I’m pretty sure she has to be full time incubating before they all start.
    • I have a bunch of people telling me to install a camera in the box and set up a webcast.  I know my parents would love it.  Especially my dad, who built the house.     If I ever get around to it, I'll post a link.
    • I wish I would have caught them taking the leap and deciding which mom to follow.  I saw them that morning and it looked like about 2/3 went with one and 1/3 the other.  Definitely some gansers in the mix too.     I've caught the leap once out of 5 years.  I track it pretty close and can predict within about 5 days window of when I need to watch in the morning for mama duck to fly down and wait.  I had it nailed last year but real life prevented me from seeing it happen.   It's interesting to me that the duck lays an egg or two a day and they pile up over the course of a week/week and a half.  But they all hatch on the same day.  Crazy.  It must have something to do with development kicking off when mama duck starts sitting on them full time.  It's cool that those first layed eggs just sit there in a state of suspended animation waiting for mom to start full time sitting on them.
