"That innovation goes down through the history of ABC," Bestwick said. "Just think about an IndyCar, where everything is weight, and you develop a camera that you can put on an IndyCar and ride around a speedway at 200 mph. All those challenges technically and personally have been a staple of ABC as long as I can remember."
"That was appointment viewing for us," Bestwick said. "We watched it every year, and that was before CBS began showing the Daytona 500. It was before racing was shown on television. It was a big, big deal. Jim McKay, Jackie Stewart, Chris Schenkel - you name it. And those people and that broadcast is what got me interested in being a broadcaster."
