Jeff Gordon joined Fox Sports for the 2016 season and then signed a multi-year extension with the broadcasting company in 2019.
Fox’s NASCAR booth may be heading for more changes next season (2022) after Adam Stern of Sports Business Journal, reported that Gordon is weighing his options on potentially leaving Fox Sports broadcast booth and expanding his role at Hendrick Motorsports next season.
Fox Sports NASCAR analyst Jeff Gordon is weighing his future with the network after this season, according to sources familiar with the matter, and he could leave the booth to take on a larger role with Hendrick Motorsports.
…Gordon’s exact final decision for what he will do after this year is not yet known. But sources say that while he’s enjoying the new three-man booth this season with first-year analyst Clint Bowyer and longtime play-by-play man Mike Joy, he also finds the prospect of taking on a bigger role with HMS as an intriguing prospect. As a result, he’s considering whether to leave the booth after this season. Fox’s half of the NASCAR Cup Series season, which it splits with NBC Sports, ends after this weekend’s All-Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway. For the 49-year-old Gordon, taking a step back from the booth would likely allow him to spend more time with his family and devote time to other projects.
