Mike Joy To Co-Host Wind Tunnel At 9PM


Not too happy with the SPEEDtv.com website or the PR guys. It would have been nice of them to update the site or drop me a line when they have a high-profile guest like Mike Joy on a program.

The NASCAR on Fox play-by-play announcer will be co-hosting Wind Tunnel with Dave Despain. This should be a good opportunity for Joy to weigh-in with his opinions about The Chase and NASCAR in general.

Glad I checked here, guess I know what I'm doing at 9pm. I'll be happy just to hear his voice and remember what real PXP sounds like.

I tape WT anyway, just don't always watch alot of it, depending on who's on. Tonite, FF will probably not be used much! I love me some Mike Joy!! I know you mentioned this info in your other piece, but to make a whole column about it shows how much you admire MJ-good job, JD ~thumbs up~

could it be that despains deal is up soon?

I hope DD's deal isn't almost up!

As much as he prefers open-wheel to stock cars, he knows his racing history and is a good host for this show.

Wow, co-host? Despain probably LOVES that! Thanks for the head's up. I don't tape this show every week and definitely will this week.

Co-host is just something SPEED uses when the guest will be on for the entire show. Nothing more.

@pamm--I have it on SP as well and do a lot of FF of most of the shows.

yup...they use co-host a lot just to mean someone is going to be hanging around for more than a segment. They use it a lot with Robin and Jeff. When DW was on I think they used it for him as well. And others like when Ed Hinton would drop by or Bob Varsha would chat with us :).

I like what Mike Joy said about the whole talladega issue last week. "NASCAR never said if you get forced below the yellow line that it is ok to pass"

I watched the re-broadcast this morning and as usual, Mike Joy is a breath of fresh air and he and Despain made a pretty good pair.
I too am looking forward to the Fox portion of the tv contract because of his great experience and great ply by play announcing.
