Comcast bringing back popular 'Watch Us Watch NASCAR' at DoverPHILADELPHIA, Pa. (April 25, 2019) -- After providing a unique entertainment experience to more than 2.6 million viewers last season, Comcast is teaming up with FOX Sports, NASCAR Hall of Famer Jeff Gordon and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Daniel Hemric to take part in the second version of […]
Four-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Fame Class of 2019 inductee Jeff Gordon is in the broadcast booth to stay for a while.
In a report by Motorsport.com, Gordon confirmed he has signed a multi-year contract extension with FOX Sports to continue as a race analyst for FOX NASCAR’s television coverage. His first contract with the network spanned through the conclusion of the 2018 season.
“It was a no-brainer for me, even more so this time around,” Gordon told Motorsport.com. “The first time, I didn’t exactly know what I was getting myself into. I didn‘t know whether I was going to be any good at it, if I was going to enjoy it.”
“I’ve enjoyed it a lot,” Gordon added. “I think it‘s a great transition out of driving the car and what comes along with the competition and the teamwork that goes into being a driver.”
Along with his race weekend duties, the 47-year-old has also been a frequent visitor on the weekday show ‘NASCAR Race Hub’ throughout his time with the network. Gordon also continues to co-own the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driven by seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson.
Gordon will be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame during the Induction Ceremony on Feb. 1 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, joining fellow legends Davey Allison, Alan Kulwicki, Roger Penske and Jack Roush in the five-member class.
