After all, next season was right around the corner. Now it's go time! Summer's over and hockey is back! Tonight, the Los Angeles Kings begin their title defense in San Jose as they take on the Sharks, led by their dangerous captain, Otto Rocket. Kings....Sharks....the NHL on ABC returns.....NOW!


(NHL on ABC 2000-2004 theme and intro)


NHL ON ABC



Gary Thorne: Summer's over and it's back to hockey! Tonight, the stars of the NHL are back to work as a new NHL season dawns over the sports world! Tonight also marks the return of the NHL on ABC as the San Jose Sharks look to defend home ice against the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings! Hello everyone, I'm Gary Thorne alongside my longtime partner, Bill Clement. Welcome back to the NHL on ABC. Bill, feels great to be back, doesn't it?

Bill Clement: Gary, I've been going to every NHL game for 10 years just waiting for you to show up!

Gary Thorne: Wait no more, old friend! The NHL and ABC are finally reunited and what better way to kick off our new era of the NHL on ABC than with an opening night matchup featuring the defending Stanley Cup champions. The Kings will be in for a tough task as they take on Otto Rocket and a potent San Jose Sharks team on their home ice. The Sharks had the best home record in the NHL last season, so the Kings will need to build momentum as soon as possible and take this raucous home crowd out of the game. 19,500 on hand tonight as we take a look at our officiating crew. Ian Walsh, Mike Leggo are our referees; John Grandt, Scott Driscoll will be the linesmen tonight. Sharks won 51 games last year, as opposed to the Kings' 46 wins. But it was the Kings who won the Cup. Game 1 of 82 for both these teams tonight and the quest for Lord Stanley's Cup IS UNDERWAY! Big hello to you watching at home, Gary Thorne and Bill Clement with you in the booth, Mike Milbury is at ice level, we'll be checking in with him as the game progresses. Backpedaling with the puck is Eddie Valentine, drops it to Twister Rodriguez, quick pass to Otto Rocket, Joey Wheeler giving chase. Rocket with a SHOT! Blocked out in front by Duke Devlin! Rebound picked up by Eddie Valentine, he snaps it....SAVED BY DEVLIN! And he will cover up for the whistle. Defensive zone face-off upcoming.


Bill Clement: Let's take a look at that last play. You see Joey Wheeler covering Otto Rocket, bottom right of your screen. Rocket has 2 choices - shoot it or try to pass it to his sister in double coverage. Shot hits the right pad of Duke Devlin. Unfortunately for Devlin, he leaves a rebound in front of the net for Eddie Valentine, but Devlin was able to react quick enough to block the rebound chance before the Sharks could do any damage.


Gary Thorne: Face-off won by Wheeler, trying to start a run up ice, his pass to Taylor quickly picked off by Reggie Rocket. A minute in here in San Jose, no score so far here on opening night. This is the first of 44 games you'll see this season here on ABC. The highlight of our coverage will be a New Year's Eve matchup between the New York Islanders and the Winnipeg Jets. Our coverage begins 5 PM Eastern on New Year's Eve. After we're done in Winnipeg, it's off to Times Square in New York, where we'll find Ryan Seacrest and Jenny McCarthy ringing in 2015 on 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve' at 8 PM. Here's Joey Wheeler flying down the wing and what's that with him?

Bill Clement: I believe they call those things 'Duel Monsters', Gary.

Gary Thorne: Whatever they're called, that Red-Eyes Black Dragon is ready to strike! Wheeler with a shot! Save made by Dullard! Rebound for Taylor, save again from Dullard! Another rebound, shot by Yugi Moto....SAVED BY DULLARD AND WE HAVE A PENALTY! Let's see what the call is. We go to Scott Driscoll.


Scott Driscoll: Los Angeles penalty, #3, 2 minutes for charging.


Gary Thorne: A charging call against Seto Kaiba of the Kings, Sharks will go on the power play after this. You're watching the National Hockey League on ABC.


(return from commercial)


Gary Thorne: Welcome back to San Jose and opening night around the NHL. San Jose about to go on the first power play of the season, let's go back and see how we got to this power play.

Bill Clement: Take a look at Seto Kaiba, #3 at the bottom of your screen right here. He just runs up and unleashes an open ice hit on Reggie Rocket. Refs saw it as a charge, that's 2 minutes in the box right there.

Gary Thorne: Seto Kaiba getting the gate for charging at 2:06 of the first period puts the Sharks on the first power play of the game, first power play of the season. Opportunity now for the Sharks! 2 on 1, Rodriguez....Rocket....SCORES! (San Jose Sharks goal horn) REGGIE ROCKET WITH A POWER PLAY GOAL! IT'S 1-0!

Bill Clement: Just a defensive lapse by the Kings. Yugi Moto gets the draw, promptly loses the puck and Twister Rodriguez spots a wide open Reggie Rocket on the wing. Duke Devlin didn't get there quick enough to stop her slapshot and the Sharks get the first goal of the new season on the power play.


Goal Summary:

Goal: Reggie Rocket (1) [Power Play Goal]
Assist: Twister Rodriguez (1)
Time: 2:16 - 1st Period


Gary Thorne: Reggie Rocket from Twister Rodriguez at 2:16 of the first period, first goal of the new season puts the Sharks up 1-0. Otto Rocket takes the draw, Sharks have an odd man rush, 3 on 1!  Otto Rocket.....SCORES! (San Jose Sharks goal horn) 2 GOALS IN 9 SECONDS! SHARKS LEAD 2-0!

Bill Clement: Wow, where did this play go wrong? Everyone on the Kings covered their assignments, it was just a perfect shot that caught Devlin out of position, puts the Sharks up 2-0.


Goal Summary:

Goal: Otto Rocket (1) [Even Strength]
Unassisted
Time: 2:25 - 1st Period


Gary Thorne: Otto Rocket gets an unassisted tally at 2:25 of the period, puck drops and it's Moto. He dumps it off for Wheeler he'll start the break. 3 minutes in here in San Jose, defending champs already find themselves down 2-0 to the Sharks. Wheeler finds Tristan Taylor in the neutral zone as  the Kings' 2nd line comes out. Raptor, Underwood and Hawkins come out to join Mai Valentine and Tristan Taylor. Taylor over to Hawkins, linesman has his arm up and a delayed penalty call upcoming. Hawkins with a SHOT! Saved by Dullard, he'll cover, we'll get a whistle and a cross checking call.


Scott Driscoll: San Jose penalty, #39, 2 minutes for cross checking.



Bill Clement: That's really interesting because there was a penalty at the other end. What happened was Reggie Rocket taking down Weevil Underwood for an interference penalty that wasn't called and now you get Lars Rodriguez getting the gate for cross checking Tristan Taylor.


Gary Thorne: Lars Rodriguez getting his first penalty of the night, 2 minutes for cross checking at 4:14 of the first period. Kings get a power play chance here as the Sharks look to put the PK in action for the first time this season. Wheeler with it, he'll dump it to Taylor. Tristan Taylor shuffles it to Yugi Moto. Moto back to Wheeler.....SCORES! Joey Wheeler puts it past Sam Dullard! It's 2-1!

Bill Clement: Take a look at the Kings' setup here, they crash the net, block out Dullard's line of sight; that way, he's caught out of position enough for Wheeler get the pass from Yugi Moto and put the puck home off the one-timer.

(2nd Period)


Gary Thorne: No carry over penalties or power plays this period, both teams heading to the 2nd period at full strength as an opportunity creates itself for the Sharks, Reggie Rocket on the breakaway! Rocket snaps a shot.....SCORES! (San Jose Sharks goal horn) LESS THAN 30 SECONDS INTO THE 2ND PERIOD AND THE SHARKS LEAD IT 3-1!

Bill Clement: And this all started with a blocked slap shot. Joey Wheeler takes aim at Sam Dullard, has his shot blocked in front by Eddie Valentine, Twister Rodriguez deflects it onto the stick of Reggie Rocket and she's away to the races. Nothing Duke Devlin could've done except guess where the puck was gonna go and he guessed wrong. Tough break for the Kings and they find themselves down 3-1 early in the 2nd period.

Gary Thorne: Reggie Rocket gets an unassisted tally of her own 26 seconds into the 2nd period, puts the Sharks up 3-1 as we have a delayed call, there's the whistle and there's going to be a tripping call against San Jose.


John Grandt: San Jose penalty, #19, 2 minutes for tripping.


Gary Thorne: There it is. Reggie Rocket gets 2 minutes in the box for tripping 34 seconds into the 2nd period. Kings go on the power play when we come back. The National Hockey League on ABC will return after these messages and a word from our ABC stations!

(NHL on ABC theme)


Gary Thorne: The NHL on ABC is brought to you by....HONDA - Official vehicle of the NHL; by Bridgestone - For drivers who want the most out of their cars, it's Bridgestone or nothing; and by Capital One - What's in your wallet? Welcome back to the SAP Center in San Jose. Sharks hold a 3-1 lead over the LA Kings. Kings about to go on the power play for the 4th time tonight. They've already capitalized once early in the 1st period. They look to take advantage of the extra man and close up the gap.

Bill Clement: What are Yugi and Joey up to?


Yugi: I summon my BLUE-EYES WHITE DRAGON!

Joey: Try this on for size, Sharks.....RED-EYES BLACK DRAGON!



Gary Thorne: And the SAP Center has been invaded by dragons!


Otto: Yo, Twist....

Twister: Yeah, Otto-man?

Otto: I think those shoobies on the Kings are tougher than they look.

Yugi: BLUE-EYES....ATTACK WITH WHITE LIGHTNING!

Joey: RED-EYES.....INFERNO FIRE BLAST!


Bill Clement: Oooh....HEAD SHOT!

Gary Thorne: Wheeler across the blue line, he's got Moto with him! Wheeler to Moto all alone.....HE SCORES! YUGI MOTO DRAWS THE KINGS TO WITHIN 1! IT'S 3-2!

Bill Clement: Well, whatever Wheeler and Moto did, it worked! Their attacks knocked Otto Rocket and Twister Rodriguez out of commission, leaving the net wide open for them to capitalize on the man power advantage, momentum going back the Kings' way, we'll see if they can maintain it and tie this game up.

Gary Thorne: Official tally was Moto from Wheeler at 1:06 of the 2nd period. Reggie Rocket back on ice and backpedaling is Joey Wheeler. He'll leave it for Tristan Taylor as the Hawkins line comes out. Taylor out to Hawkins, Hawkins fires out to Underwood, Weevil Underwood dogged by Trish Beckham, #22, left of your screen. Underwood's forced to pass it, has it picked off by Oliver Van Rossum and he will clear. Puck taken by Hawkins, new defensive pairing comes out, Marik Ishtar and 'Bandit' Keith Howard in and Ishtar is immediately muscled off the puck by Otto Rocket. Rocket has it poke checked away by Rebecca Hawkins and she's on the breakaway! Hawkins alone against the keeper....AND CHOP-O-MATIC! Hawkins is slashed by Reggie Rocket and that will be a penalty shot! First penalty shot of the season, comes nearly 4 minutes into the 2nd period here in San Jose. Hawkins....in on Dullard....shot....WE'RE TIED AT 3!

(3rd Period)


Gary Thorne: The Kings will be on the power play for the first 4:52 of the 3rd period. We'll reset things for you. On ice for the Sharks - Otto Rocket, Twister Rodriguez patrol the wings, Reggie Rocket at center, Lars Rodriguez, Eddie Valentine on defense with Sam Dullard in goal. For the Kings, we see Yugi Moto with Joey Wheeler and Seto Kaiba on the wings. On defense is where we'll find Marik Ishtar and 'Bandit' Keith Howard with Duke Devlin in goal. Shot by Otto Rocket is wide right, rebound by Reggie Rocket, save by Duke Devlin and he will clear!

Bill Clement: That was a crucial clear for the Kings, Rocket and the Sharks were really threatening that last shift.

Gary Thorne: Last shift for the Sharks, 3 shots on goal, nothing got past Devlin. Shots are 26-20 in favor of the Sharks, score tied at 3, 3 minutes into the 3rd period here in San Jose. Linesman has his arm up, we'll be getting a delayed penalty call on the next stoppage. Wheeler drops it off to Ishtar who'll fire this one into the glove of Sam Dullard, he'll cover up for the whistle and a hooking call coming up. Coming up next after we're done here, we have the Sprint Postgame Show with Stuart Scott, Barry Melrose, Ken Daneyko and Jamie Little. They'll break down all the action from opening night and offer their predictions for the season ahead. After that, it's your late local news followed by 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' and 'Nightline', except on the west coast. On the west coast, you'll see 'The Middle', 'The Goldbergs', 'Modern Family', 'Black-ish' and 'Nashville'. It'll be hooking against Eddie Valentine at 3:16 into the 3rd period, Kings on the power play again. They have pounced twice on the power play, looking to pounce again to take the lead. Here's Wheeler....flying down the wing, here he comes. Pass off to Moto, over to Howard....and deflected off the stick of Lars Rodriguez! Puck taken by Reggie Rocket, pass off to Twister Rodriguez, he'll fire this one....OFF THE LEFT PAD OF DUKE DEVLIN! Rebound in front, here's Reggie Rocket....SAVED BY DEVLIN! Devlin will clear it out, new threesome coming out for the Kings. Hawkins, Underwood and Raptor out now. Taken by Hawkins, down to 48 seconds to go in this power play for the Kings. Hawkins....to Underwood....SHOT....SAVED BY DULLARD! And he will cover up for the whistle! 19 seconds left to go on the Kings' power play when we come back, you're watching the National Hockey League on ABC!

(NHL on ABC theme)

Gary Thorne: The NHL on ABC is brought to you by....Nissan - Innovation That Excites; by 5-Hour Energy; and by Bud Light - Great Taste for your Great Times....HERE WE GO. 15:03 to play here in the 3rd period, tied up at 3 in San Jose, game 1 of 82 for the Sharks and the Kings. Kings looking for back to back Cups, the Sharks looking for their 1st Stanley Cup. Defensive zone face-off upcoming, won by the Sharks looking to kill off the remaining 19 seconds of this Kings power play. Reggie Rocket will clear it out and the Sharks return to full strength. Puck taken by Hawkins behind the net, she'll start up ice, 14:30 to play in the 3rd, tie game here in San Jose. We thank you for joining us here on ABC. Gary Thorne, Bill Clement with you, Mike Milbury at ice level; Stuart Scott, Jamie Little, Ken Daneyko and Barry Melrose are in our Times Square Studios awaiting the final horn for our Sprint Postgame show. Here's Reggie Rocket starting the break for the Sharks. Pass intended for Valentine picked off by Hawkins, got a player down on the ice....

Bill Clement: That's 'Bandit' Keith Howard, Gary.

Gary Thorne: Arm is up, delayed penalty on San Jose. Hawkins with a shot....SAVED BY DULLARD! He'll cover up for the whistle and a penalty call.

Bill Clement: Looks like a boarding call here, Gary. Howard is hurt....big time. Looks like this one's going to Lars Rodriguez.

Gary Thorne: No amount of penalty time on the board just yet.

Bill Clement: The one thing I saw when Howard went down on the ice and the whistle blew, Lars Rodriguez motioned over to Keith Howard and acknowledged Keith Howard in a sense of 'Hey, I hope you're okay'. Nice pick up by our camera crew. Either way, that check from behind is still a penalty either way.

Gary Thorne: 5 minutes, now up on the board for Lars Rodriguez.

Bill Clement: Are they throwin' him out?

Gary Thorne: He must have more than 5. When a major penalty is imposed under the boarding rule for a foul resulting in an injury to the face or head, a game misconduct will be imposed. Sure enough, that's what the call is. Lars Rodriguez gets 5 minutes and a game misconduct for boarding at 6:02 of the 3rd period. This is a Best Buy power play, Wheeler will wind and fire! Saved by Dullard and he'll drop it behind the net for Valentine. Eddie Valentine starts up ice, clears it for Twister Rodriguez and back out to Otto Rocket. Here's Rocket, back to Rodriguez....NO GOAL! They're saying it was kicked in!

Bill Clement: Let's go back, look at the replay....I don't know if the refs are seeing something we're not, but I do not see any distinct kicking motion. This goal's gonna count, no question.

Gary Thorne: AND THERE IT IS! (San Jose Sharks goal horn) TWISTER RODRIGUEZ GIVES THE SHARKS THE LEAD! IT'S 4-3, SAN JOSE!


(Later in the period....)


Gary Thorne: Less than 4 minutes to play in regulation, 3:48 on the board now. Sharks lead it 4-3. Here's Wheeler, back to Seto Kaiba, over to Moto. Pass back to Kaiba for the one-timer....SCORES! AND WE ARE TIED AGAIN! IT'S 4 ALL WITH 3:26 TO GO IN REGULATION!

Bill Clement: This was just a case of the Kings taking advantage of a Sharks line change. San Jose got caught out of position during the change, nothing Dullard could've done here.


Goal Summary:

Goal: Seto Kaiba (1)
Assists: Joey Wheeler (2), Yugi Moto (1)
Time: 16:34 - 3rd Period



Gary Thorne: It's Kaiba from Wheeler and Moto at 16:34 of the 3rd period, ties the game up at 4 as we close in on 3 minutes to go here in the 3rd period. Sharks and Kings starting their season tonight. This is one of 4 games tonight. Montreal takes on Toronto in Toronto, Flyers take on the Bruins and the Flames take on the Canucks in their season opener. Pass for Trish Beckham picked off by Rebecca Hawkins. Here's Hawkins in the offensive zone, pass to Underwood is tipped and intercepted by Otto Rocket. 2:30 to play in regulation; if the score holds as is, both teams will get 1 point to start their season, as we will go into overtime. SLAP SHOT BY OTTO ROCKET SHATTERS THE GLASS! And we have a whistle and a delayed call!

Bill Clement: Otto Rocket's goin' in the box for Delay Of Game. Huge penalty for the Sharks, crucial power play coming for the Kings.

Gary Thorne: Otto Rocket gets 2 for Delay Of Game at 18:02 of the 3rd period. Huge power play coming up for the Kings when we come back to San Jose! The National Hockey League on ABC will return after these messages and a word from our ABC stations!

Here's Serenity Wheeler....Wheeler out to Ryo Bakura, Bakura tried to go cross ice to Marik Ishtar but had it deflected onto the stick of Eddie Valentine. He'll dump it off to Van Rossum.

(Overtime)


Gary Thorne: 3 periods couldn't decide a winner for us here in San Jose, we're going to overtime! It's 4 on 4 now as Otto Rocket jumps back onto the ice after his penalty. For the Sharks, it's Otto & Reggie Rocket with Twister Rodriguez and Eddie Valentine, Sam Dullard in net. On the ice for the Kings - Yugi Moto, Joey Wheeler, Tristan Taylor and Mai Valentine with Duke Devlin between the pipes, chance now for the Kings. Here's Mai Valentine, pass out to Wheeler....SHOT...WIDE RIGHT! No threat to Dullard! Rebound for Taylor, SAVED BY DULLARD! He'll cover, we have a whistle and a delayed call! Here's Scott Driscoll.


Scott Driscoll: Los Angeles penalty, #18, 2 minutes for high-sticking.


Bill Clement: Wow....this is something the Kings simply COULD NOT AFFORD. Joey Wheeler is their sharpshooter, so having him sent off for a high-sticking penalty in overtime is devastating. Stick comes up, slams right into Otto Rocket and the ref saw it. That'll mean some time in the penalty box.

Gary Thorne: Wheeler gets sent off for high-sticking 1:14 into overtime, setting up a Best Buy power play for the Sharks. Face-off won by Otto Rocket, Rocket out to Rodriguez, passed back to Eddie Valentine and back to Reggie Rocket. Rocket with a SHOT! Deflected away by Devlin and he'll dump it off for Taylor. 1:20 left on the power play for the Sharks, down to 2:58 on the clock in overtime. Taylor starting the breakout, passes the puck out to Hawkins. Hawkins back to Taylor, centering pass to Moto and SAVED BY SAM DULLARD with 58 seconds to go on the power play!

Bill Clement: The Sharks are doing what they have to do. They're putting on good defensive shifts, they're trusting their keeper to make the stops they need and that's exactly what Sam Dullard has done. He's made the stops when it counts to keep his team in the game, possibly force a shootout.

Gary Thorne: 2:20 to play in overtime, we are tied up at 4 here in San Jose as Hawkins starts up ice. Hawkins snaps a shot wide of the goal, picked up by Rocket. Otto Rocket with a shot! Save made by Devlin! Rebound by Rodriguez, save by Devlin! Rebound picked up by Eddie Valentine, shot, SAVE BY DUKE DEVLIN! Kings go back to full strength, 1:42 to play in overtime!

Bill Clement: I don't think I can take much more of this, Gary! This is too nervewracking, even for me!

Gary Thorne: Neutral zone face-off won by the Sharks as they look to start the breakout. Clock shows 1:30 to play in overtime. Score still tied at 4-4 as a chance presents itself for San Jose, here's Otto Rocket. SHOT! CHANCE! SAVED BY DUKE DEVLIN! A pair of amazing saves by Duke Devlin keeps the Kings in the game as we hit the final minute of overtime! Joey Wheeler will pick it up behind the net, waiting for his mates to get set up. Now he'll start up ice, pass out to Hawkins. 40 seconds left on the board. Hawkins with a shot! Saved by Dullard! Rebound for Joey Wheeler, SAVE AGAIN BY SAM DULLARD!

Bill Clement: They don't call him 'Stonewall Dullard' for nothing here, Gary! Sam Dullard has lived up to his nickname here tonight!

Gary Thorne: One last chance for the Sharks! Reggie Rocket into the defensive zone, down to 10 seconds! Pass back to Rodriguez and back to Reggie Rocket! 4 seconds! Last shot! She'll fire....SAVE BY DUKE DEVLIN AND WE ARE GOING TO A SHOOTOUT! Overtime couldn't decide it here in San Jose, we are going to a Shootout! For those of you who are new to the game of hockey, here's how the shootout works:


- Each team picks 3 shooters
- Each shooter will take a penalty shot at the goalie
- Most goals after 3 shooters wins the game


Gary Thorne: First up is the Sharks' captain, Otto Rocket. Rocket in on goal, dekes out Devlin, shot...SCORES! Sharks take a 1-0 lead in the shootout!

Bill Clement: Devlin wasn't expecting Otto Rocket to deke him out there, so it was a matter of guessing where he was gonna go and Duke Devlin guessed wrong.

Gary Thorne: First shooter for the Kings is Rebecca Hawkins. Hawkins with a goal already in this game, skates in on Dullard.....DENIED!

Bill Clement: And we mentioned this at the top of the broadcast here, Gary. One of the keys to the game is to outmaneuver Sam Dullard. Rebecca Hawkins did it once, she tried the same moves she tried earlier, but this time, Dullard was ready for it, stopped her cold.

Gary Thorne: Round 2 of the shootout starts with Reggie Rocket of the Sharks. She skates in on Devlin, tries the crossover move.....SAVE BY DEVLIN! Duke Devlin stops Reggie Rocket dead in her tracks!

Bill Clement: This was what Duke Devlin needed to do. He figured out Reggie's strategy and her moves, he knew what he had to do, he stacked the pads on Reggie Rocket, kept the Kings in the game.

Gary Thorne: Now here's Joey Wheeler. Wheeler in on goal, fires this one.....AND SCORES! We're tied at 1 in the shootout!

Bill Clement: It was a must-score situation for Joey Wheeler, he didn't have to get close, unleashed a big slap shot and Sam Dullard just couldn't react quick enough.

Gary Thorne: Must save situation for Duke Devlin, if Devlin doesn't stop this shot, it will be all up to Yugi Moto to keep the Kings in this game. Here's Twister Rodriguez in on goal with a shot....HE SCORES! It's 2-1 Sharks! Now to keep the Kings in the game, Yugi Moto MUST SCORE. Anything else and the Sharks win it. Moto in on goal, snaps the shot.....PAST DULLARD AND THE KINGS ARE STILL IN IT! Now here's Oliver Van Rossum. Off to the races is Van Rossum, in on Devlin, shot....SAVE BY DEVLIN!

(Tom Hedden - A New Game)


Allen Bestwick: It started in September with 17 proud nations, all with one common goal....to win the Sprint Cup title. Since then, 6 Chase races have cut the field in half. Now, just 8 drivers remain in the hunt for the title. Today, the half mile paperclip of Martinsville awaits 43 drivers. 8 Chasers, 35 spoilers. The Eliminator Round starts now. 8 nations enter, 4 will advance, 1 will become a champion. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Racing from Martinsville is NEXT!


(ESPN SpeedWorld 1998-2004 theme)


Allen Bestwick: ESPN, The Worldwide Leader In Sports, and the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, welcome you to Martinsville for round 7 of the 2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup, the GOODY'S HEADACHE RELIEF SHOT 500! Our coverage today is presented by AutoZone. Welcome inside our ESPN broadcast compound high atop Martinsville Speedway. Hello, everyone, I'm Allen Bestwick. We'll talk to Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree a little later on, but we'll tell you right now that we're in the hurry up. There's rain in the Martinsville area, the start time of the race has been moved up to 1:32 PM in an effort to beat the weather. Let's now go down trackside for the command.


Track Announcer: RACE FANS, PLEASE DIRECT YOUR ATTENTION TO THE START/FINISH LINE WHERE OUR GRAND MARSHAL, 2014 LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES PHENOM MO'NE DAVIS, WILL DELIVER THE MOST FAMOUS WORDS IN MOTORSPORTS!


Mo'Ne Davis: DRIVERS! START! YOUR! ENGINES!


(43 850 horsepower engines fire up)


Allen Bestwick: An amazing year for Mo'Ne Davis continues as she gives the command to fire engines here in Martinsville. We now welcome in Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree. Dale, Andy....4 races to go in the Chase, field's been cut to 8. What's your mindset coming into today in Martinsville?

Dale Jarrett: One thing comes to mind here, AB - stay out of trouble, stay near the front, get the win. That's easier said than done here because we see a lot of yellows here in Martinsville, attrition will play a factor and here, weather could also play a factor as we could be racing to halfway.

Andy Petree: You talked about attrition there, Dale. We typically see around 8-10 cautions a race here in Martinsville. That's plenty of opportunities for these crews to implement their strategies, show what they can do....and one mistake on pit road could put you behind the 8 ball with 2 tough tracks coming up in this Eliminator Round in Texas and Phoenix.

Allen Bestwick: The Eliminator Round of the Chase starts here in Martinsville as the field pulls off of pit lane for 4 parade laps. Coors Light, official beer of NASCAR, is proud to sponsor the Coors Pole Award given to the fastest driver in each NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

Allen Bestwick: 500 laps around this half mile oval, just over 250 miles here at Martinsville, 35 MPH is pit speed here. Pit window is 110-120 laps and a Ridgeway grandfather clock awaits the winner of this race at the end of the day. Pace car is off, field out of turn 4 and WE ARE GREEN IN MARTINSVILLE!

Andy Petree: Taylor has the preferred line through turn 2, he won't clear him this time, though.

Dale Jarrett: He'll clear the 1 this time, Andy. Look at the run Taylor gets through 1 and 2, Uno had no answer that time as we see Edd making his way through the field. He started 33rd, already up inside the top 25, up to 23rd at lap 13!

Allen Bestwick: Another driver making his way up through the field is Tommy Pickles. He started 13th, he's up to 6th. Pickles has never won at Martinsville, mentor Jeff Gordon's won here 8 times. Tommy would be happy with just 1 of those grandfather clocks!

Dale Jarrett: He's on his way, up to 5th now as he's by the 14 of Kick Buttowski!

(RESTART: Lap 108 - 10 caution laps)


Allen Bestwick: Danny Fenton got busted for speeding on that last round of stops, he's back in 32nd as Nigel Uno and Timmy Turner lead them to the restart! Stack up in turn 4, Katara's around, CAUTION'S OUT! Right in front of Danny Fenton! 5th caution of the day, 109 laps complete here in Martinsville.

Andy Petree: Nikki Wong's gonna get the free pass on this one.

Allen Bestwick: Under caution again here in Martinsville. We'll be back after this and a word from our ABC stations.


(RESTART: Lap 117 - 8 caution laps)


Allen Bestwick: Nigel Uno, Timmy Turner lead us down to the restart and for the lead! Nigel Uno in the 1, Timmy Turner in the 20!

Dale Jarrett: Turner's got a push from the 88 of Kim Possible, 24 of Pickles behind her!

Allen Bestwick: And to the lead is Timmy Turner! Battle for 7th shaping up. Phineas Flynn wants it, Randy Cunningham wants to keep it.

Andy Petree: And he won't.

Allen Bestwick: Flynn to 7th and he'll set his sights on Tristan Taylor for 6th!


(Lap 164 - Caution 6)


Allen Bestwick: TROUBLE! ABIGAIL LINCOLN, JEREMY JOHNSON GET TANGLED UP! Field is scattered, caution out again at lap 164. Anyone to pit road?

Jamie Little: Track bar adjustment complete on the 24 of Tommy Pickles, trying to alleviate a tight condition on exit, 4 tires and fuel for Pickles and he's away, still searching for that first grandfather clock. Doc?

Dr. Jerry Punch: 4 tires and fuel for race leader Otto Rocket, no changes to the 3 car and he's away!

Dale Jarrett: Kim Possible making that outside line work for her, got by the 4 of Edd pretty quickly and he's getting freight trained!

Andy Petree: That's the one thing you don't want here at Martinsville. You don't want to get forced to that outside line because that'll cost you a few positions as we see Rocket, Turner and Pickles making their way up, trying to rebound from their pit speed penalties.

Allen Bestwick: They restarted 27th, 28th and 29th, respectively. They're now closing in on the top 15. Rocket runs 17th, Turner 18th and Pickles 19th as we come to halfway in Martinsville and rain is coming. Time to go NASCAR NONSTOP presented by 5-Hour Energy.

(Elvis Presley - A Little Less Conversation)


Allen Bestwick: No room for errors, no room for conversation today! We're here at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama for the 6th race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup, the GEICO 500! The championship dreams of 4 drivers will come to an end today. Drivers like Abigail Lincoln, Ashley Armbruster and Randy Cunningham can control their own destiny, but they'll need a victory today to assure themselves a place in the next round. Ben Tennyson on the bubble, he'll need to finish in the top 10 to have a chance at advancing and Tommy Pickles starts 43rd, he advances by finishing at least 21st or better. Welcome inside our ESPN broadcast compound, alongside Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree, I'm Allen Bestwick. When this format was announced in January and Talladega was announced as an elimination race, teams were on edge about it.

Dale Jarrett: No doubt about it, Allen. This is the wild card of the Chase. This is the most pressure these teams have faced this season. All 12 teams still in the Chase have a chance at advancing if they play their cards right.

Andy Petree: This truly is the most pressure-packed race of the Chase, AB. Things can change in a hurry here with those restrictor plates. Just one big wreck and some of those bottom 4 drivers could find themselves back in the hunt.

Allen Bestwick: Anything can happen at any moment here at Talladega. The Big One can strike at any time and if any of our championship drivers are involved, the Chase can shift in a hurry. Let's head down trackside for the command.


Track Announcer: RACE FANS, ARE YOU READY? Please welcome our grand marshal, regional sales manager for GEICO Macon Southeast, RHETT RAYBURN!


Rhett Rayburn: Help me, Talladega! DRIVERS! START! YOUR! ENGINES!


(43 850 horsepower engines fire up)


Allen Bestwick: Talladega knows those words all too well. Coors Light, official beer of NASCAR, is proud to sponsor the Coors Pole Award, given to the fastest qualifier in each NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Coors congratulates Vince Lasalle and we'll see him at Daytona for the Sprint Unlimited in February 2015. We take a look at our GEICO Starting Grid, drivers in yellow are in the Chase, drivers in green have already advanced to the next round. While you take a look at the grid and see where your driver is starting, let's get a word with our In-Race Reporter, Danny Fenton.


(IN-RACE REPORTER: Danny Fenton - 16)


Dale Jarrett: Danny, Dale Jarrett in the ABC booth. You got me?

Dale Jarrett: Danny Fenton, Dale Jarrett, you got me?


(static)


Allen Bestwick: We'll try again a little later. 2.6 mile track, 188 laps will make up the 500 mile distance. Beautiful day here in Talladega, pressure-filled day for the field. It's the final race in the Contender Round of the Chase, 4 drivers' championship hopes will end today as we go FULL THROTTLE from Talladega!


(START - 188 LAP RACE)


(Full Throttle graphic)


(Lap 32 - Caution 1)


Allen Bestwick: TROUBLE FOR BEN TENNYSON! HE SLAMS INTO VINCE LASALLE IN THE 55, RANDY CUNNINGHAM GETS A PIECE OF THE WRECKAGE.....Caution is out! First shift in the Chase today as with Tennyson gone, that puts Lincoln in the 8th spot as they run. Pits are open and here they come! Dave Burns?


Dave Burns: Just a 2 tire stop for Randy Cunningham, a must win race for the 48 team, no adjustments on the car and he's away! 15 of Ashley Armbruster also in a must win situation after blowing up at Charlotte last Saturday night. 2 tires for Armbruster and she's away! Jamie Little?

Jamie Little: Right side tires only for the 16 of Danny Fenton. His girlfriend and usual crew chief, Sam Manson, is expecting twins in November. The team already has Dudley Puppy's replacement, Nationwide Series points leader Matt Quinlan, on standby in the event that Danny has to leave early. Danny radioed in to his sister, Jazz Fenton, that his car is too loose in traffic. Track bar adjustment complete and he's away! John Kernan?

John Kernan: Service complete on Otto Rocket's car, just left side tires and fuel for the 3 and Rocket Man's away!

(RESTART: Lap 40 - 8 caution laps)

Allen Bestwick: Some new faces out front here in Talladega. Cunningham, Rocket, Turner, Shortman and Gilligan are your top 5 at 40 laps here in the GEICO 500! That outside line got moving in a hurry as Cunningham got a shove from Arnold Shortman in the 37 and Randy Cunningham to the lead in a must win race for him!

Dale Jarrett: As we said in the opening, AB, this is a very unpredictable race. Things change here in a hurry as you just saw there, Spongebob Squarepants got himself into the top 15....

Andy Petree: Question is, is that a safe enough place to run?

Allen Bestwick: The Big One can happen when and where you least expect it here. Squarepants may be racing in treacherous waters 42 laps in here at Talladega as we have a challenge for the lead! Otto Rocket in the 3, 48 of Randy Cunningham! Hearing reports that the 1 of Nigel Uno may be leaking some oil on the track, we'll keep track of it for you....there it is, caution out for the 1 car. 2nd one of the afternoon, 43 laps complete here in Talladega for the final race of the Contender Round of the Chase. The Eliminator Round begins next Sunday at Martinsville! Coverage begins next Sunday at 1 with NASCAR Countdown, our coverage is presented by AutoZone.


(RESTART: Lap 48 - 5 caution laps)


Allen Bestwick: 48 laps down here in Talladega. Rocket, Cunningham, Shortman, Gilligan and Homer Simpson are your top 5 as we come to the green....TROUBLE, TURN 2! JOEY WHEELER SPINS! HE COLLECTS BRAD CARBUNKLE IN THE 30, KICK BUTTOWSKI IN THE 14, AANG IN THE 35 ALSO INVOLVED, AS WELL AS VIRGIL HAWKINS IN THE 32! Caution out for the 3rd time at lap 48....and another major shift in the Chase taking place. With this most recent development, Ashley Armbruster is now back in the hunt. Still have a long way to go, 139 laps left to run here as we go NASCAR NONSTOP presented by Goodyear.


(RESTART: Lap 57 - 9 caution laps)


Allen Bestwick: Back to green flag racing at 57 of 188 laps here at Talladega, let's go FULL THROTTLE with 22 JUMP STREET!


(Full Throttle graphic)


(Lap 92 - Caution 4)


Allen Bestwick: Green flag pit stops underway, 2 waves of cars already in the pits, Dr. Jerry Punch, we start with you.


Dr. Jerry Punch: Hendrick Chevrolets pitting together this first round of green flag stops, all on the same strategy, all taking 4 tires and fuel...they're away! Jamie?

Jamie Little: Fords also pitting at once as another wave comes in, Rudy Tabootie in for 4 tires and fuel, waiting on a teammate, there goes Dudley Puppy in the 99 and he's away! Dave Burns?

Dave Burns: 4th wave of cars ducking on to the pit lane. The leader of that wave, Ashley Armbruster, opting for 4 tires and 2 cans of Sunoco race fuel, no adjustments for the 15 and she's away! Caution on the track, guys.


Allen Bestwick: Caution out for debris in turn 4. Our 4th one of the afternoon, 92 laps complete here in Talladega, we go NASCAR NONSTOP presented by Goodyear.


(NASCAR NONSTOP)


(RESTART: Lap 96 - 4 caution laps)


Allen Bestwick: Just past halfway here in Talladega, Otto Rocket is your race leader, he's got fellow rookie Johnny Test behind him in 3rd as we are back to green flag racing! Look at the run Danny Fenton got through turn 2! He's got help from the 24 of Tommy Pickles, 48 of Randy Cunningham behind them!

Dale Jarrett: They're 3 and 4 wide behind them, Allen! That's trouble just waiting to happen!

Allen Bestwick: And whenever I see a gaggle of cars like that here or at Daytona, I always wonder whether the next word out of my mouth will be 'TROUBLE!' Rocket led that lap by a fender! Here comes Fenton to try again!

Andy Petree: Kim Possible, the 88 car, got forced up to the top groove, picked up the 20 of Timmy Turner, now they're making their way to the front!

Dale Jarrett: They've picked up another passenger, that's Ashley Armbruster in the 15 car!

Allen Bestwick: This is a must win race for the 15 and 48. They can still point their way in, but they will need some help. They come around to complete lap 100. 88 laps to go here in Talladega, we go NASCAR NONSTOP presented by Goodyear!


(Lap 146 - Caution 5)


Allen Bestwick: BIG TROUBLE! MULTIPLE CARS INVOLVED! 10, 15, 20 CARS IN THE WRECKAGE! CAUTION IS OUT! Some of the Chasers made it....which ones didn't?

(Lap 152: RED FLAG)


Allen Bestwick: 152 laps down here in Talladega, the red flag has come out after a 24 car crash occurred in turn 3, taking out a majority of the field, along with some of our Chasers. John Kernan is with one of them. John?


John Kernan: Here with Kim Possible, one of the drivers involved in that brutal 25 car wreck....Kim, what happened?


Kim: We were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. We were moving nicely through the field, got a push from the 22....but it was right into that wreck. We got the win at Kansas to fall back on, so we're safely into the next round. Martinsville, here we come!


John Kernan: Kim Possible was hoping for a good finish today here in Talladega. She'll leave here disappointed instead, falling just short of the finish.


(RESTART: Lap 158 - 11 caution laps)

(RESTART: Lap 190 - 6 caution laps)


Allen Bestwick: Rocket, Fenton, Cunningham, Pickles and Turner are your top 5 as we come to the first of 3 attempts at a green-white-checker finish. Will we make it to the checkers? Will we have another big wreck? 2 laps to decide it here in Talladega! Otto Rocket leads, help coming from Cunningham trying to get to the 24! Fenton jumps up high to pick up the 3! WHITE FLAG IN THE AIR! THIS WILL BE THE FINAL LAP! Cunningham tried to get help from the other Hendrick Chevy, now he's got it! 2 Chevys on the outside lane, the Chevy of Rocket and the Ford of Danny Fenton on the inside lane! Who's gonna win it? Here comes the 15 of Armbruster with help from Phineas Flynn in the 43! 3 wide, 2 rows deep! TO THE FLAG....ROCKET WINS AT TALLADEGA!


(3 Team Communications)


Otto: YEAH, BABY! We are in the Eliminator Round! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!

Reggie: The Chase is on again, everyone!



(Victory Lane) (Author's Note: Attention 'ESPN Speed World' fans, here comes the return of another ESPN alum)

Bill Weber: Otto Rocket, you came into this race 2nd in the points, only led 14 laps, but led the lap that counted. What's next?


Otto: What's next is the Eliminator Round, Bill. We just have to keep doing what we've been doing all season, stay inside the top 10 each race, avoid the mayhem and we'll be racing for a title at Homestead next month. That's all there is to it. We get the wild card of the Eliminator Round early at Martinsville. We survive that and we're pretty much into the Championship Round.

I've yet to see the IndyCar season finale from Fontana. School just started up for me and I also have to catch up with NASCAR Toon Cup. I'm working on a side story right now. Hoping to get that posted tonight and get started with the Atlanta race either tonight or tomorrow.
