Daytona 500 announcers 2024: Kevin Harvick joins Mike Joy, Clint Bowyer on Fox’s broadcast

It’s time for the biggest NASCAR race of the year – the Daytona 500.

Despite being the biggest event on the NASCAR schedule, the iconic race kicks off the NASCAR Cup Series. Drivers come out swinging because of that, and it hasn’t been disappointing the past few years. Fans have learned to expect the unexpected.

Over the past few years, drivers with only a handful (or none at all) of Cup Series victories have found luck at the Great American Race. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. claimed his first Cup Series win in six years at last year’s Daytona 500.

He’s not a favorite to repeat, though. The odds-on favorites are Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin, who won the Busch Light Clash at The Coliseum two weeks ago.

As expected, Fox will handle broadcasting duties for the Daytona 500. Here’s what you need to know about the revamped crew.

Fox Daytona 500 announcers for 2024

Kevin Harvick makes his Fox analyst debut at the Daytona 500. The former NASCAR Cup Series champion and 2007’s Daytona 500 victor dipped his hand in broadcasting during his career, working on the Xfinity Series on NASCAR on Fox in ’15 and ’17.

He joins play-by-play announcer Mike Joy and analyst, as well as former driver, Clint Bowyer.

This will be Joy’s 45th time covering the Great American Race and 24th for Fox. He’s worked with a handful of broadcast partners, most notably Darrell Waltrip and Larry McReynolds.

Bowyer joined the network in 2021 after retiring from driving. He was a longtime teammate with Harvick while competing for Richard Childress Racing and later Stewart-Haas Racing. The duo worked together along with Joey Logano in ’17 as part of Fox NASCAR’s drivers-only coverage of the Xfinity race at Pocono.
