NASCAR Race Hub is a daily NASCAR news program broadcast on Fox Sports 1 Monday through Thursday. Originally broadcast on Speed, the show replaced NASCAR Nation and This Week in NASCAR. NASCAR Race Hub premiered on October 12, 2009 as a 30 minute show, but was extended to 60 minutes in the following years. The show was again shortened to 30 minutes after moving to Fox Sports 1 from Speed in August 2013, only to be returned to 60 minutes starting on September 23.

History[edit]

NASCAR Race Hub premiered as a half-hour show, but eventually became an hour-long show until it was shortened back to 30 minutes in August 2013, although it was very quickly restored to an hour-long format. It previously aired at 6:00 p.m. ET, as well as at 7:00 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday.

At first the show was hosted by a rotating group which included NASCAR RaceDay and NASCAR Victory Lane host John Roberts, Camping World Truck Series Setup show host and occasional NASCAR Trackside host Krista Voda and Byrnes, but in August 2010, Byrnes was announced as the permanent host of the show and has been in that capacity ever since, though it does not affect his duties as a pit reporter during the NASCAR on FOX races of a given Sprint Cup Series season.

The show breaks down the previous weekend's race and previews the upcoming one, providing analysis and interviews along the way. Jimmy Spencer has a segment on the Tuesday and Thursday editions of the show where he provides commentary and answers viewer emails and tweets. His segments became popular for the various 'awards' he gives drivers and teams such as the crying towel, cigars, strait jackets. Also on Monday, former Miss Sprint Cup, Monica Palumbo along with Danielle Trotta, presented the tweets of the week from NASCAR Drivers and Crewmen. Trotta contributes segments to the show and does interviews with drivers, crew chiefs and car owners as well as acting as a fill-in host in Byrnes' absence. In 2013, Trotta became co-host, and the show moved from its own studio to share the Speed Center studio. With the show moving to Fox Sports 1 on August 17, 2013,[1] the show moved to a 4:30 p.m. start time.[2] When the show was re-lengthened, this start time was revised to 4 p.m.[3] It does not always not always air at 4. It sometimes airs at various times, once a day, during the afternoon.
