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.
