Fox Sports Executive Producer, President and Co-COO Eric Shanks made the announcement, which extends Waltrip’s contract through 2014.
“Being part of the NASCAR on FOX team has given me an opportunity to share my passion and love for NASCAR,” Waltrip said. I never thought there would be anything that could replace the thrill of driving race cars. I was wrong. Bringing that thrill to the fans at home every week is just as exciting!”
Along with his broadcast duties, Waltrip will continue his weekly columns for FoxSports.com and his appearances on the NASCAR web series 3-Wide.
