Broadcasting veteran Steve Byrnes brings over 20 years of television experience, both behind and in front of the camera, to his work as a NASCAR on FOX pit road reporter. Armed with strong reporting skills, an earned trust within the sport and a quick wit, Byrnes delivers alongside colleagues Dick Berggren, Matt Yocum and Krista Voda.

Byrnes began his TV career in Washington D.C., covering professional sports immediately upon graduating from the University of Maryland. Two years later he moved in front of the camera as an on-air talent in Charleston, S.C. In 1985, Byrnes took a position as producer and co-host of Inside Winston Cup Racing on TNN. In 1999, Byrnes' challenge was a one-hour human interest and documentary program airing on TNN called Darrell Waltrip's Racers. In 2000, Byrnes accepted the role of color analyst and coordinating producer for the 20-race ASA AC-Delco Stock-Car Series on TNN and served as color analyst with the Summer Legends Shoot-Out Series on FSN. To further complement a busy year, Byrnes was chosen to host a two-hour documentary on The History Channel entitled The History of Stock Car Racing. In 2001, Byrnes was chosen as a commentator for the NASCAR on FOX broadcast team and as host of Totally NASCAR on FSN and SPEED Channel. In addition to serving as a commentator for the NASCAR on FOX broadcast team, Byrnes now serves as the host of NASCAR Live and co-host of Trackside, both on SPEED Channel. Byrnes is also guest host of a weekly NASCAR segment on The Page on Sports Radio 610 WFNZ in Charlotte. Born April 14, 1959 in Chicago, Byrnes currently resides in Fort Mill, S.C., with his wife Karen and their son Bryson.
