DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Ray Evernham is returning to the broadcast booth in NASCAR, rejoining ESPN as an analyst after taking a year off.
Evernham, who won three championships as Jeff Gordon's crew chief and later started his own team, was an ESPN analyst from 2008-10. He didn't work for the network last season, instead working as a consultant to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick.
Evernham says he will continue working with Hendrick while working for ESPN. He says he took a year off from broadcasting so he wouldn't create ``any perceived conflict of interest'' related to his new role with Hendrick. Evernham says his work with Hendrick's companies isn't related to racing.
Evernham will join ESPN at Daytona Speedweeks.
