Saturday night's NASCAR race at Bristol set to air on ESPN locally

If the Buffalo Bills' preseason game sells out and airs on Ch. 7 Saturday night, NASCAR fans in Buffalo will still be able to see the Sprint Cup race at Bristol.

According to an e-mail sent to The News from ESPN Communications, "arrangements have been made for the race to air on ESPN in the Buffalo area."

NASCAR coverage is airing on ABC throughout the country. If the Bills' 7 p.m. game is on Ch. 7, the entire NASCAR telecast, which begins at 7 p.m. with prerace coverage, will be aired on ESPN in the Buffalo area. The green flag is scheduled for 7:48 p.m. 

What is set to air on ESPN Saturday night? A high school football game between schools from South Carolina and Virginia. I think it's safe to say that ABC/ESPN made a great move here.
