Fox Sports Announces they will go with a 2 man booth of Mike Joy and Jeff Gordon for the FOX/FS1 part of 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season. Fox Sports is known for their 2 man booths on Football and other sports Fox covers. This news has been speculated ever since Darrell Waltrip retired after the 2019 Fox portion of the season.
Fox Sports Press Release:
Shannon Spake and Adam Alexander return as hosts, with four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and FOX NASCAR lead analyst Jeff Gordon, 2010 Daytona 500 winner and FOX NASCAR analyst Jamie McMurray, two-time Daytona 500 winning crew chief Larry McReynolds and NASCAR Cup Series drivers Clint Bowyer, Aric Almirola and William Byron scheduled throughout the week.
“This is truly above and beyond any amazing professional scenario I could ever come up with,” said Spake, a South Florida native and FOX NFL sideline reporter. “Hosting RACE HUB at the site of the Super Bowl less than an hour from where I attended high school and college … you simply can’t dream this big. I’m beyond excited.”
Alan Cavanna and Kaitlyn Vince report for RACE HUB, with Vincie stepping up this season to host NASCAR RACE HUB: WEEKEND EDITION, as well as a slate of weekday shows in 2020. NASCAR Cup Series champion Bobby Labonte, a 2020 NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductee, and Ricky Craven, a winner in four different NASCAR racing series, serve as analysts alongside Vincie.
In addition to Labonte and Craven, driver/crew chief analysts confirmed for NASCAR RACE HUB this season include Larry McReynolds, Brad Keselowski, David Ragan, Andy Petree, Austin Dillon and Drew Blickensderfer.
