The NASCAR on FOX gang returns after the mess of Daytona to nice weather and smooth sailing in Phoenix, AZ.
Chris Myers returns to TV after dealing with the tragic passing of his teenage son in a traffic accident. Michael and Darrell Waltrip will be with Myers on the pre-race show.
Mike Joy will call the race that features Mark Martin starting from the pole. Darrell Waltrip and Larry McReynolds will be alongside in the TV booth. Steve Byrnes, Matty Yocum, Krista Voda and Dick Berggren are the pit road reporters.
This week features Jeff Hammond rolling out his roving reporter role at a short track. Not exactly the location for unique stories, keep an eye on how often Hammond is seen in the telecast and what topics he chooses to address.
The pre-race show starts at 2:30PM and the green flag is at 3:15PM. MRN carries the radio coverage and will once again be streaming coverage for free at motorracingnetwork.com on both the website and mobile version as well.
