FOX NASCAR QUOTES

FOX NASCAR analyst Ricky Craven says the new rules package has drivers and teams on their toes:
“For many years, Atlanta has been a driver favorite because of the ability to move around the race track to find a preferred groove or lane, as well as the added responsibility of managing your tire wear. But the debut of this new rules package has everyone back on their heels a bit. Sure, it is the same abrasive Atlanta track, but there’s now a high probability that how you approached this race in the past will not apply this weekend.”

Craven says the jury will be out on the new aero package for the first four races:
“The next four races, all at completely different disciplines of race tracks, will give us an indication of which direction we are headed with the new aero package. We can’t judge it, for better or worse, after just one or two races, though.”

FOX NASCAR play-by-play announcer Adam Alexander discusses the growth of FOX Sports’ initiative to put Cup drivers in the Xfinity booth and Jimmie Johnson’s analyst debut with Kevin Harvick on Saturday:
“I could have never imagined, when we introduced Cup Series drivers to the Xfinity Series booth a few years ago, that it would grow like this. We’ve had countless Cup regulars join us, and Kevin established early that this is something he wants to continue to be a part of. His great success on the track has translated nicely to the booth, and I know Jimmie’s will, as well. It will be fantastic to get those two together on Saturday, and I can’t wait to have a front-row seat for it.”

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — When reigning MONSTER ENERGY NASCAR CUP SERIES champion Joey Logano removes his FOX Sports headset after calling Saturday’s NASCAR XFINITY SERIES season opener at Daytona, he’ll hand it off to seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson.

Johnson calls his first race for FOX Sports as a guest driver analyst on Saturday, Feb. 23 (2:00 PM ET on FS1) at Atlanta. Johnson, however, has a drafting partner in his maiden trip to the FOX NASCAR broadcast booth, as 2014 champion Kevin Harvick assumes the lead analyst role alongside play-by-play announcer Adam Alexander.

Harvick’s broadcast dance card expands this season with the addition of lead analyst duties for seven Xfinity Series races. For the races in which Harvick is lead analyst, he pairs with a rotation of Cup Series drivers moonlighting as guest analysts, while FOX NASCAR analyst Michael Waltrip helps anchor FOX Sports’ coverage from the Virtual Studio in Charlotte.

“I’ve enjoyed calling NASCAR Xfinity Series races for FOX Sports more than I ever imagined I would, so I am looking forward to adding even more this year,” Harvick said. “I’ve made no secret of the fact I can see broadcasting in my future after racing, so this is a cool opportunity to branch out as the lead analyst and perhaps even offer some pointers to other drivers calling the races with me.”

“I’m excited to come in and see the race from a different vantage point,” Johnson said. “I’ve been a big fan of Kevin’s work in the booth and feel like we’re going to have a great time and add a lot of detail to the race, so I’m excited to have that opportunity in Atlanta.”

Seven-time champion and crew chief for William Byron, Chad Knaus, makes his FOX Sports race broadcast debut at Talladega alongside Alexander and Harvick, while Bubba Wallace makes his inaugural analyst appearance at Michigan after making his pit road debut during last year’s FOX Sports “Drivers Only” broadcast.

In addition to Logano, Johnson and Wallace, 2012 champ Brad Keselowski, 2004 champion Kurt Busch, Clint Bowyer, Austin Dillon, Ryan Blaney and Regan Smith return to the booth this season. See complete schedule below for specifics.

“DRIVERS ONLY” BROADCAST:
The highly popular “Drivers Only” broadcast is back for the third consecutive year — this time with a twist. Knaus crashes the “Drivers Only” party, joining all eight returning drivers from last season. Charlotte Motor Speedway plays host to this year’s edition on Saturday, May 25 (1:00 PM ET on FS1).

For the third time, Harvick has the call alongside analysts Bowyer and Logano. Blaney, Jones and Wallace cover pit road, while Keselowski returns to host from FOX Sports’ virtual studio in Charlotte alongside Stenhouse Jr. and Knaus.
