During the NASCAR telecast yesterday, there was a whole lot of talk about basketball.

Fox announcers Darrell Waltrip and Mike Joy went back and forth throughout the 500-mile race, arguing about who was going to win last night’s national championship game between Connecticut and Kentucky.

Joy grew up in Connecticut and Waltrip is from Kentucky, and they were both sure the school from their state would win the game.

The Sprint Cup race took place at Texas Motor Speedway, about 30 miles away from AT&T Stadium, the site of the national title game. The race was rained out Sunday and moved to Monday.

Joy got the last word, predicting that Joey Logano’s win was a good omen for the Huskies. Logano is from Middletown, Conn.
