Jim brings a lifelong passion for all things motorsports to the show.  When not behind the microphone of our show, you can find Jim on FOX Sports as a pit reporter and booth analyst for live broadcast coverage of the ARCA Racing Series, on the public address system and on the big screens at 20 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events, on Motor Racing Network’s coverage at the track, working the mic at Road America, traveling out of state for voicework and taking in as many short track events he can.
At the core of the program’s mission of providing local racers their time to shine, Jim keeps the fan’s interest at heart with his curious yet relaxed approach with show guests.
