NBA Star Chris Paul Hosts 10th Anniversary CP3 PBA Celebrity Invitational Sunday on FOX

Terrell Owens, Mookie Betts, and JJ Watt Join PBA Stars for Show’s Broadcast Television Debut

LOS ANGELES and CHICAGO – The Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) and FOX Sports today announce NBA star Chris Paul welcomes an all-star cast of athletes, entertainers and professional bowlers to his 10th anniversary CP3 PBA Celebrity Invitational, presented by Go Bowling!, when it makes its broadcast television debut on FOX on Sunday, Feb. 3 at 2:00 PM ET.

The Super Bowl Sunday special, benefitting the Chris Paul Family Foundation, features well-known athletes including returning competitors Terrell Owens, recently inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and reigning American League MVP and World Series champion Mookie Betts of the Boston Red Sox, along with a guest appearance by Houston Texans superstar defensive end J.J. Watt. Also participating are Paul’s Houston Rockets teammate PJ Tucker, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver William Jackson III, and NASCAR champion Aric Almirola, driver of the No. 10 Go Bowling! Ford. Entertainers include Big Brother Season 20 star Tyler Crispen, model and Big Brother contestant Angela Rummans, and Houston-based, Grammy-nominated rapper/artist Bun B.

“This is totally different than any bowling I do during the summer or with my friends and teammates,” said Paul. “The pressure is different, there are a lot of people here, the lights are bright, but I’ll make sure I do enough to win. It’s amazing that it’s been 10 years. I’m so grateful to the PBA and the bowlers, I can’t say thank you enough.”

The field of PBA stars include Hall of Famers Norm Duke, Pete Weber and Chris Barnes; past PBA Players of the Year Jason Belmonte, Tommy Jones, EJ Tackett, Sean Rash and Andrew Anderson, and PBA Tour champions Tommy Jones and Kyle Troup.

The CP3 PBA Celebrity Invitational is hosted by FOX Sports’ Rob Stone, with longtime PBA analyst Randy Pedersen and reporter Kimberly Pressler.

In the five-frame, Baker format, single-elimination match game battle for the prestigious Chris Paul trophies, Duke is paired with Paul as defending champions, trying to help Paul claim the title for a record fifth time. Weber again bowls with Owens, Barnes is paired with Jackson, Jones with Betts, Tackett with Tucker, Belmonte with Almirola and Troup with Crispen. Rash and Anderson bowl a two-minute “strike-fast” contest to determine who gets to bowl with Rummans.

The featured doubles competition involves modified five-frame matches in which the PBA partner bowls the sixth, eighth and 10th frames while the celebrity bowls the seventh and ninth frames. It’s a fast, fun format, but one that competitors take seriously, especially one as intense as Major League Baseball’s premier player in 2019, Mookie Betts.

“It means a lot,” Betts said. “It’s tough to create friendships with athletes in different sports, but Chris Paul has been a great friend and great guy.”

Despite his growing friendship with Paul, Betts has his eyes on the prize after losing to Paul and his PBA partners in the championship match the last two years.

“I can’t lose again,” Betts said. “I lost the last two years. I can’t lose again.”

Also, as part of the telecast, 2018 Teen Masters age-group winners Brandon and Justin Bohn (sons of PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III), Tom Hankey Jr. and Jenna Williams; former University of Nebraska All-American Gazmine Mason, and PBA Tour champion DJ Archer, who compete in a one-shot, low-count out “mini clash.” The winner advances to a similar “super clash” with the celebrity stars.

FOX Sports Adds Veteran NASCAR Driver and TV Analyst Ricky Craven to Weekend Studio Team

Race Winner Across All Three NASCAR National Series Brings Respected Voice, Perspective

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Ricky Craven, veteran NASCAR driver and longtime television analyst, joins the FOX NASCAR on-air team in 2019.

Craven, the 1991 NASCAR XFINITY SERIES champion and multi-race winner across NASCAR’s three national divisions, lends his well-regarded perspective to NASCAR RACE HUB: WEEKEND EDITION, NASCAR practice and qualifying shows, and other weekend programming emanating from FOX Sports’ new virtual studio in Charlotte.

“I’m honored to join FOX Sports and have always had great admiration and appreciation for the company’s dedication and commitment to our sport,” Craven said. “FOX has an amazing team I have felt a connection to since 2003, when they enthusiastically delivered the broadcast of our finish at Darlington. I eagerly await the start of our new season.”

Prior to joining FOX Sports, Craven spent 11 years at ESPN (2008-2018) as a NASCAR analyst, frequently appearing on “SportsCenter,” “NASCAR Now” and other news platforms, in addition to calling select Xfinity Series races through 2014.

The Maine native competed in the MONSTER ENERGY NASCAR CUP SERIES for 11 seasons following his runner-up finish in the NASCAR XFINITY SERIES point standings in 1993 and 1994.
His legendary 2003 win over Kurt Busch by .002 seconds at Darlington Raceway remains tied as the closest-recorded finish in NASCAR history.

“Ricky Craven is synonymous with credibility and wisdom in the NASCAR industry,” said Steve Craddock, SVP, NASCAR Production, FOX Sports. “He doesn’t shy away from candid analysis, even under difficult circumstances, and his reputation, vast experience and relationships in the sport command the respect of all.”

During his Cup Series career, Craven drove for Hendrick Motorsports, Larry Hedrick, SBIII Motorsports and Midwest Transit Racing. He cites finishing third in the 1997 DAYTONA 500 behind teammates Jeff Gordon and Terry Labonte as one of his most memorable racing moments. Craven took the reins of the No. 32 PPI Motorsports Ford for owner Cal Wells in 2001 and scored his first career Cup Series victory that October at Martinsville Speedway following a last-lap battle with Dale Jarrett. Craven’s final full season of NASCAR competition was in 2005.

Craven’s hiring follows recent announcements FOX Sports has made, which include adding veteran motor sports journalist Bob Pockrass and NASCAR driver Jamie McMurray to its team. The full FOX NASCAR on-air lineup for 2019, including additional new hires, is forthcoming
