While his broadcast partners Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer are best known for their racing, it will be Mike Joy who’s taking to the track this weekend.
The play-by-play voice of Fox’s NASCAR broadcasts will be pulling double duty in Sonoma this weekend, taking part in the Historic Trans Am series as a driver before heading into the booth for the NASCAR Cup Series Toyota Save Mart 350.
Joy will be racing a 1966 Ford Mustang that actually raced in Trans Am at the time. Many of these cars are the real deal and were raced by such legends of the sport as Mark Donohue, Dan Gurney, and Parnelli Jones. It’s the kind of throwback race where historical accuracy is the name of the game, and this will be the closest thing to actually getting into a time machine and watching a Trans Am race from the 60s.
