Danica Patrick Will Serve As XFINITY Series Analyst For FOX

When the XFINITY Series rolls into Michigan for June 12-13, Danica Patrick will have a very unique view for the race. Announced today by Fox Sports, Danica Patrick will be in the broadcast booth as a race analyst for the event on Saturday, June 13th, alongside play-by-play announcer Alex Alexander and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team owner, Michael Waltrip. This will be the first time Patrick has been in the broadcast booth for a full NASCAR event, and the first time in history a female has been in the booth for a full race.

Patrick is the fourth driver to be announced as a race analyst for FOX Sports’ NXS broadcasts. Patrick’s teammate and defending Sprint Cup Champion Kevin Harvick will be in the booth for the Alert Today Florida 300 from Daytona later today on Saturday, February 21st. 2010 XFINITY Series Champion Brad Keselowski and four-time Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon will also be among the drivers rotating in and out of the broadcast booth in 2015.

Thanks for the warning !! Ought to be quite a sight – – “Ahh-Umm’AHH-Umm’ AHH-Umm Princes Sparkle Pony – and Look-at-Me…LOOK-at-Me…LOOK-AT-ME_ME_ME Waltrip both babbling , while trying to stay out of Adam Alexanders way as he constantly wiggles and bounces & rutches and shuffles around — Have to make sure my MUTE button is working – –


I mute the TV when she speaks and usually take a bathroom break when she starts to speak..but I did notice Ricky Stenhouse being interviewed because of him getting into the show. I lost count of how man Umm’s he said. We started joking around, it was embarrassing. I think he needs a speech coach, apparently she does too.
