FOX Sports will add fresh talent to its NASCAR lineup in 2015
Along with familiar faces such as Mike Joy, Darrell Waltrip and Larry McReynolds, Jamie Little and Chris Neville will join veteran reporter Matt Yocum on pit road.
But perhaps the most significant change will be the addition of reigning champion Kevin Harvick along with 2012 champion Brad Keselowski and four-time Cup title-holder Jeff Gordon for the Xfinitiy Series broadcast which FOX Sports adds to its schedule this season. The three champions will be in rotation along with hosts Adam Alexander and Michael Waltrip to offer current perspective from the cockpit to the booth.
