Larson finally has it all together. Really showing his talents as a driver. Good to see.

So Jr is looking at the booth looks like. I wonder which broadcast will get him. Dunno how it would work at Fox.

I would hate to see him partnered with Darrell Waltrip.

Me too. But I dunno if Fox would get rid of DW or have a 4 guy booth. Dumping Gordon would be a bad move. The NBC broadcast is awful so Jr there would be good if they get rid of Letarte who's pretty bad. Burton, meh, Kyle Petty would be a lot better. Guess we'll see.

I don't want Kyle calling the race. I like Kyle.. But he grows tiresome very, very quickly. I think he's perfect in the pre/post-race setting that he's in now.

My two all-time most hated were Eli Gold, and.. while I like him, I hated listening to races he called.. Buddy Baker. Loved listening to Buddy on Sirius, but could not stand listening to him call a race.

Was it last year, or the year before, that Squire and the Jarrett's called a bit of a race? Ned was still great. Guy is a natural. So easy to listen to during a race.

I thought Jeff Burton would be a lot better but he is so monotone voice wise that he gets boring. Always liked him but expected more once he was an announcer.

Agree no 4 guys in a booth and Jeff needs to stay where he is. I just cannot stand to listen to Waltrip.

Ned and Bennie were the two best, IMO.. I could sit there and listen to them calling a field being planted and enjoy it.
