FOX Sports today unveiled its broadcast lineup for the 53rd Rolex 24 At Daytona, which begins on FOX network television at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 24. The race opens the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup.
Bob Varsha and Brian Till will share hosting and play-by-play duties, with analysis from racers Justin Bell, Calvin Fish and Tommy Kendall. Chris Neville, Matt Yocum, Jamie Howe and Andrew Marriott report from the pits.
For FOX Sports coordinating producer Greg Oldham, heading into his 26th year of covering the iconic endurance race, it’s all about telling the stories.
“This event certainly offers a terrific challenge,” Oldham said. “With four classes of cars racing simultaneously, there’s always outstanding racing and great stories to tell. And even over a 24-hour period, the action is constant.
“We feel we have a great announce team in the booth and in the pits that can tell the many stories that develop in the two days we are on the air.
“It is a demanding event, but with the team in front of, and behind the cameras, I can’t wait for the green flag to drop.”
