McReynolds joins TNT broadcast team

Larry McReynolds is branching out from his role as a NASCAR analyst on Fox Sports and Speed, joining the team that will work six Nextel Cup races for TNT this summer. "We are excited about adding Larry's knowledge to our team," said Jeff Behnke, executive producer for Turner Sports said Monday. "We plan to use him in a multipurpose role."

McReynolds, a former NASCAR crew chief, joined the Fox team as an analyst in the booth for the 2001 season. He continues in that role in this, the first year of NASCAR's second consolidated network contract.

Fox will end its 2007 season after the Dover race in early June, with TNT taking over at Pocono on June 10 and broadcasting through the July 15 race at Chicagoland.

McReynolds will work TNT's prerace show from a mobile set along with a host that is yet to be named. He will add commentary from that set during the races and also will be used to demonstrate things from a cutaway car and pursue stories in the garage as needed.

Bill Weber and Wally Dallenbach will be in the booth for those six races, with Kyle Petty joining them for five of those.
