NASCAR Cup Series play-by-play broadcaster for FOX, Mike Joy will be racing in the Historic Trans Am Series during NASCAR weekend in Sonoma alongside his son Scott. From the booth to the cockpit, Mike Joy knows the ins and outs of racing, and will be putting his experience to the test as he pulls double-duty June 7-9. 

NASCAR’s return to wine country is also FOX’s NASCAR season finale when the race is broadcast Sunday on the FOX network Sunday, June 9. 

The Historic Trans Am series is made up of some of the most iconic muscle cars produced that raced on the natural road circuits in North America. The field includes actual restored Trans Am race cars that raced from 1966-1972 when it was the biggest stock-bodied racing series in America.  

Mustangs, Camaros, and Challengers originally raced by Parnelli Jones, Dan Gurney, Mark Donohue, George Follmer, and Sam Posey have been restored. The Historic Trans Am cars will compete Friday and Saturday and be on display Sunday. Mike Joy’s 1970 Z28 Camaro, prepared by Chris Drysdale of Sonoma, was raced in 1970 by Jerry Thompson for Tony DeLorenzo’s Owens Corning Racing Team with some factory support. 

NASCAR weekend in Sonoma will feature brand-new repaved asphalt for the first time in 23 years and is going to be a can’t miss event! Three full days of racing will be on tap on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – June 7, 8 and 9 – kicking off with the ARCA Menards Series West on Friday, then featuring the stars of the NASCAR Xfinity Series on Saturday afternoon, followed by the Historic Trans Am, and the NASCAR Cup Series for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 on Sunday at 12:30 PM.
