NASCAR Hall of Fame driver and Franklin resident Darrell Waltrip will be back in the FOX broadcast booth on April 17 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Waltrip, 75, with his signature “Boogity, boogity, boogity,” retired in 2019 after 19 year as one of NASCAR’s most popular broadcasters. He’ll be back as guest analyst on FOX alongside former colleague Mike Joy and analyst Clint Bowyer for the Food City Dirt Race.
“I‘m thrilled to have the chance to drop in and call the Bristol Dirt Race,” said Waltrip, three-time champion and the winningest driver at Bristol with 12 victories. “When FOX first asked me, I was super excited because Bristol is, by far, my favorite track. If I could pick just one race to call, it would be Bristol. The track is honoring Easter with a special celebration service, and we‘ll top it off with a great race that evening.”
