Four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon makes his debut as a live race analyst for FOX Sports on Friday, calling the NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Texas Motor Speedway on FOX Sports 1 (8:30 p.m. ET).

 

Friday’s race marks the first of two consecutive full-race appearances in the FOX Sports 1 booth for Gordon, currently in his final full year of Sprint Cup Series competition. He also is scheduled to offer analysis on April 18 (1:30 p.m. ET) from Bristol Motor Speedway on FOX Sports 1, and again from Talladega on May 2 (1:30 p.m. ET) on FOX. He offers analysis at Texas alongside Adam Alexander and Michael Waltrip.

 

Gordon is one of five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers announced as part of a rotation in the FOX and FOX Sports 1 booth for FOX Sports’ coverage of the 2015 NASCAR XFINITY Series season.

Also scheduled as guest analysts this season are defending champion Harvick, 2012 champ Keselowski, Clint Bowyer and Danica Patrick. This season, FOX Sports adds coverage of the NASCAR XFINITY Series for the first 14 races of the year. FOX Sports 1 telecasts 10 of the events while FOX broadcasts the races from Phoenix, Talladega, Charlotte and Dover.
