Tony Stewart, who is doing select races as the third person in the Fox booth, won’t be returning in the position in 2023.
The three-time NASCAR champion was hired as a third person in the booth, alongside regulars Mike Joy and Clint Bowyer, to do select races. He also did four races in 2022, including the Dayton 500, the L.A. Clash and races at COTA and Sonoma Raceway.

Fox decided to rotate their third person in the booth for the 2023 season. As for the 2024 season, they will have a permanent member, who is none other than Stewart’s current driver for Stewart-Haas Racing, Kevin Harvick. Speaking about Harvick taking over his role, Stewart joked that he is getting fired from Fox booth.
“The sad part is Kevin Harvick let the cat out of the bag at the LA Coliseum. Kevin is gonna be in the booth full-time next year for fox. So, I am actually getting fired. I have got five more events this year with Fox and I love doing it.”
The SHR co-owner then added that he likes to be at the Fox booth and that he would return again but for a different series.
“The great thing is I am also getting the opportunity to do the broadcast for the NHRA side as well so I am gonna do a couple of races with Fox again at the NHRA.”
As for Harvick, he is set to retire from full-time Cup racing after the 2023 season. He already has some experience in the Fox booth as he has featured regularly as a guest analyst since 2015.
