Motorsports broadcaster Marty Reid out at ESPN

   An ESPN spokesman confirmed Sunday afternoon that Marty Reid no longer works for ESPN and the network has decided to go "in another direction."

    Allen Bestwick will call rest of the NASCAR Nationwide Series races this year. The network will announce a replacement for its IndyCar Series broadcasts in the future.

    Reid has worked as a television sportscaster at ESPN since 1982, covering motorsports for the network. Most recently he was the network's IndyCar Series lead commentator and also called select NASCAR Nationwide Series races for the network and the Indianapolis 500 for ABC.
