‘Race Hub’ ready to wrap at Super Bowl with another great show

It’s tough to top a show that features racing legend A.J. Foyt, seven-time NASCAR Premier Series champion Jimmie Johnson and former NFL running back LaDainian Tomlinson revealing that he will be honorary starter for the Daytona 500, but “NASCAR Race Hub” is ready to give it another go.

Co-hosts Danielle Trotta and Adam Alexander will host another all-star lineup of guests Thursday at 6 p.m. on FS1, including FOX Sports NASCAR analyst Jeff Gordon and NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly. They will be joined, as usual, by FOX Sports NASCAR analyst and former crew chief Larry McReynolds, who tweeted after Wednesday’s show that he was “surrounded by greatness.”

That show featured not only Foyt recounting how he “blew” the 1979 Daytona 500 that was won instead by Richard Petty, but also some unique football tossing involving all the show’s principals and guests. The Hub also broke down some of the worst wrecks in Daytona 500 history.

This will be the final Race Hub show telecast from the FOX Sports TV compound at the Super Bowl in Texas, after a huge week that featured a steady stream of guests from both the racing world and football.

Super Bowl LI between the NFC champion Atlanta Falcons and AFC New England Patriots is set for this Sunday live on FOX, with the kickoff set for approximately 6:30 p.m. ET following a full day of pre-game coverage on FOX.

Race Hub, which keeps fans up to date with the latest NASCAR news and feature stories, has been filming its show live from Houston since Monday.
