NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon knows what he will do for part of his first year away from full time Sprint Cup race. Gordon announced Thursday at Charlotte Motor Speedway that move to the TV booth as an analyst for Fox Sports next season. Gordon served as race analyst for Fox Sports’ coverage of three NASCAR Xfinity Series races this year.

Gordon will join three time champion Darrell Waltrip and announcer Mike Joy as Fox begins its 16th year of NASCAR Sprint Cup coverage.  This season marks Gordon’s 23rd and final year of full time competition.

“NASCAR has provided me so many incredible memories, experiences and opportunities throughout my 23 years as a driver, and I can’t wait to start a new chapter in racing with this new relationship with FOX and to be in the booth with Mike (Joy) and Darrell,” said Gordon. “I feel so lucky to be a part of a sport that I’m very passionate about, and now I get the opportunity to share that passion to millions of race fans from a whole new perspective.” MORE>>>
