FOX Sports Embarks on Milestone Consecutive 20th Season of NASCAR Coverage Beginning with Iconic Daytona 500

Clint Bowyer Joins FOX NASCAR in 2020 as NASCAR XFINITY SERIES Analyst

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – FOX Sports opens its upcoming milestone consecutive 20th season of NASCAR coverage from Daytona Speedweeks with a little help from a friend.

NASCAR CUP SERIES driver Clint Bowyer expands his FOX NASCAR on-air contributions in 2020, adding more NASCAR XFINITY SERIES races to his plate alongside Adam Alexander and a rotation of Cup Series drivers to be announced in the near future.

Additionally, Bowyer contributes to NASCAR RACEDAY and NASCAR RACE HUB multiple times throughout the year, offering his unique insight and analysis as an active NASCAR CUP SERIES racer. The Stewart-Haas Racing driver has served as a FOX Sports analyst for multiple NASCAR XFINITY SERIES races, in addition to the network’s “Drivers Only” broadcast the past three years.

“Anyone who knows me knows I want to have fun, and I’ve really had a good time doing TV the past few years,” Bowyer said. “It’s a different perspective up in the FOX Sports booth, and I always learn something, even if it’s just about the guys I race with every week. My Saturdays are free this year, and Lorra (Bowyer) made it clear she wants me out of the motorhome, so this is the perfect weekend part-time gig for me.”

DAYTONA 500 & 2020 NASCAR CUP SERIES SEASON

FOX NASCAR commenced its inaugural year of coverage with the 2001 DAYTONA 500, and two decades later, continues to deliver unparalleled multi-platform storytelling from Daytona International Speedway and throughout the season. Twenty years later, many of the same FOX Sports faces converge on the iconic superspeedway to present FOX Sports’ 17th DAYTONA 500 on Sunday, Feb. 16 (2:30 PM ET on FOX).

Led by esteemed play-by-play announcer Mike Joy, calling his 41st DAYTONA 500 for live television or radio, the FOX NASCAR on-air team packs a collective 200 years of experience covering the “Great American Race.” Alongside Joy in the booth is Hall of Famer and four-time champion Jeff Gordon, covering his fifth DAYTONA 500 for the network. Gordon is a three-time DAYTONA 500 champion, most recently winning the crown jewel event in 2005.
Longtime race analyst and two-time DAYTONA 500-winning crew chief Larry McReynolds, in his 17th Daytona Speedweeks as an analyst, continues to partner with Joy and Gordon, delivering unparalleled insight from FOX Sports’ state-of-the-art virtual studio in Charlotte.
