Jeff Gordon will take on a full-time analyst job with Fox in 2016, when he will join Mike Joy and Darrell Waltrip in the three-man booth.
Gordon, who signed a multiyear contract with Fox, is retiring at the end of this season. The four-time NASCAR champion is in his 23rd full-time year in the Sprint Cup Series.
“NASCAR has provided me so many incredible memories, experiences and opportunities throughout my 23 years as a driver, and I can’t wait to start a new chapter in racing with this new relationship with Fox,” Gordon said Thursday. “I feel so lucky to be a part of a sport that I’m very passionate about, and now I get the opportunity to share that passion to millions of race fans from a whole new perspective.”
