Regan Smith, who has competed in all three NASCAR national series, will serve as a pit reporter for Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and Xfinity series races next season for Fox Sports. He will also continue to serve as a race analyst on Fox Sports 1’s “NASCAR Race Hub."
Smith made his debut as an analyst this season with FS1 for the broadcast of the June Xfinity race at Iowa Speedway.
“When I had the opportunity to be in the Fox Sports booth at Iowa earlier in the year, the driver in me was really intrigued by the TV side of the sport," Smith said. “So, my biggest goal in joining pit road is to be able to give viewers something they didn’t know before or to better help them understand something going on with the driver or the car.
“Since I am still competing, I can put into perspective what a driver is feeling at a particular moment."
Smith, who competed in 16 races across all three series – Cup, Xfinity and Trucks – this season, has appeared as a driver analyst on “Race Hub" since 2015.
“We’ve enjoyed and appreciated Regan’s insight in the NASCAR Race Hub studio but really had our eyes opened to his broadcasting potential at Iowa last summer," said Steve Craddock, Fox Sports senior vice president of NASCAR production.
“A fan and peer favorite, he has proven himself seamless in translating his years of driving experience to the viewers at home."
