Three NASCAR championships will be decided on the track at Homestead-Miami Speedway in the days ahead and three champions will be in the broadcast booth for the Motor Racing Network as Ford Championship Weekend unfolds in South Florida.

2015 title holders Erik Jones from the Camping World Truck Series and Chris Buescher from the XFINITY Series join former Cup Series champ and Hall of Fame driver Rusty Wallace in providing analysis for MRN’s exclusive radio coverage of the final weekend of the 2016 season.

“In addition to our resident champion and NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace, who joined our broadcast team last year, we’re honored to have last year’s XFINITY and Camping World Truck Series champions Chris Buescher and Erik Jones join us for our championship coverage,” said Motor Racing Network President and Executive Producer David Hyatt.

MRN’s all-star lineup gets busy Friday night with live coverage of the season-ending Ford EcoBoost 200 for the Camping World Truck Series. Jones, who will race for another championship on Saturday in the XFINITY Series, joins anchors Alex Hayden and Dave Moody as the inaugural Truck Series chase wraps up. Air time is 7:30 p.m. (ET).

Buescher steps into the broadcast booth on Saturday, joining MRN anchors Mike Bagley and Steve Post for live coverage of the season-ending race in the XFINITY Series. Air time will be 3 p.m.
Then on Sunday, Wallace takes his turn behind the microphone to help Joe Moore and Jeff Striegle deliver live coverage of the Ford EcoBoost 400 – after which NASCAR’s 68th Cup Series champion will be officially crowned. Air time is 1:30 p.m.

“We have the best team in motor sports and we are ‘The Voice of NASCAR,’ ” Hyatt said. “This weekend, fans who tune in to our broadcasts from Miami will also hear the voices of champions who will add insight and context to our coverage – making a great team even greater.”

MRN programming from Homestead-Miami Speedway will be produced by Ryan Horn and Brian Nelson. In addition to serving a nationwide network of some 450 radio stations, this weekend’s races will be streamed live at www.MRN.com and on the MRN App.

Fans who are unable to attend this weekend’s races can find their local Motor Racing Network affiliate by visiting MRN.com and clicking on the “STATIONS” link.

MRN’s coverage of Ford Championship Weekend from Homestead-Miami Speedway is part of the network’s 2016 slate of over-the-air race broadcasts featuring 71 live events from 27 venues. The schedule opened in February with Speedweeks from Daytona International Raceway. It’ll conclude next month with the annual Sprint Cup Series Awards in Las Vegas.

In addition to its comprehensive lineup of over-the-air broadcasts of NASCAR races and exclusive digital programming, Motor Racing Network streams live coverage of Sprint Cup Series practice and qualifying from 12 International Speedway Corporation-owned tracks, Pocono Raceway and Dover International Speedway.
