DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Barney Hall will make Saturday night's race at Daytona International Speedway his final event as the lead announcer for Motor Racing Network.
Hall has been calling races for more than 50 years, and will transition into a different role with MRN.
NASCAR President Mike Helton announced that Saturday night would be the final race in the booth for the 82-year-old in the pre-race driver meeting. The drivers and crew chiefs gave him a standing ovation after Helton noted his dedication to NASCAR.
Hall, along with Ken Squier, is part of NASCAR's Squier-Hall Award, which was created in 2012 to honor the contributions of media to the success of the sport.
