ESPN, ESPN2 Keep Dragging


ESPN and ESPN2 will air more than 100 hours of National Hot Rod Association POWERade Drag Racing Series programming combined, the networks said Tuesday.

Most telecasts will appear on ESPN2, with five of the events featuring some qualifying or elimination coverage on ESPN, the networks said.

Coverage kicks off Saturday and Sunday with the K&N Filters Winternationals from Pomona, Calif.

The networks’ coverage will be supplemented by 41 half-hour episodes of ESPN2’s NHRA 2Day, a weekly show covering the NHRA, which usually airs Sundays at 11:30 a.m.
