Danica Patrick to be Fox Sports 1 analyst at Michigan
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Danica Patrick is the latest driver to agree to be a Fox Sports 1 analyst during an upcoming Xfinity Series race.
Patrick will be in the booth for the June 13 race at Michigan. Fox believes it will be the first time a woman has been an analyst during a live NASCAR television broadcast.
Fox Sports 1 is rotating drivers through the booth for its first season of Xfinity Series coverage. Kevin Harvick, Patrick’s teammate, was in the booth for Saturday’s season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway.
Also scheduled as guest analysts this season are four-time champion Jeff Gordon and 2012 champion Brad Keselowski. The four drivers are to offer analysis alongside play-by-play announcer Adam Alexander and analyst Michael Waltrip.
