Fox Sports’ three-man NASCAR booth -- play-by-play announcer Mike Joy and analysts Darrell Waltrip and Jeff Gordon -- are all expected to return for the '19 season, a source close to Fox informed THE DAILY. Gordon's deal was expiring after '18, and there have been calls for Fox to shake up the booth, but Gordon is now close to renewing, while Waltrip and Joy -- who have both been with Fox since it started airing NASCAR in '01 -- are also expected to be back, the source said. An official announcement could come once Fox finalizes its deal with Gordon. Fox wrapped up its '18 season coverage this past weekend as far as Monster Energy Cup Series and Xfinity Series action is concerned, though it will continue to air Camping World Truck Series races and shoulder programming for the remainder of the year.
