ESPN Changes Announcers For Texas Busch Race
ESPN has announced that Dale Jarrett will join Marty Reid and Andy Petree to call the Busch Series event at Texas. This moves Dr. Jerry Punch and Rusty Wallace aside for the moment, which ESPN says is a planned break and nothing more.
The ESPN press release stated that DJ would join ESPN for ten telecasts in 2007, but made no mention of any additional role in the future. Dr. Jerry Punch was said to be "on vacation" by ESPN, but in the current release from the network Marty Reid was referred to as the "lead announcer."
Thank you for the email on this subject from both NASCAR and NHRA fans. We will post additional news on this situation as it becomes available.
