Broadcasting Legend Bob Jenkins Anchors An All Star Announce Crew For Stafford Speedway’S Carquest Presents The Big One

Stafford Springs,CT. --

Fans of NASCAR and Indy Cars know him. Now that Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Rick Bobby has hit theaters others are recognizing him as well. Broadcasting legend Bob Jenkins has signed on to anchor the announce team for Stafford Speedway’s CARQUEST presents THE BIG ONE, Tuesday night August 15th.

Jenkins spent almost 20 years with ESPN hosting their award winning NASCAR coverage. He also hosted ABC’s coverage of the Indy Racing League and the Indianapolis 500. He is no stranger to the midgets and PRA Big Cars that headline Stafford’s open wheel-open cockpit special.

Jenkins and the late Larry Neuber originated ESPN’s Speedweek show as well as the original USAC Thursday Night Thunder Series that launched Jeff Gordon to superstardom. But it has been the box office hit Talladega Nights that has mainstreamed the Indiana native.

Jenkins plays himself in the NASCAR spoof staring Will Ferrell.

“I had appeared in several previous racing movies in cameo roles,” explained Jenkins. “When the producers of Talladega Nights approached me I thought that was what they wanted for their movie. Instead I become part of the team that chronicles the legend of Ricky Bobby.”

Joining Jenkins at Stafford Tuesday August 15th is USAC’s official voice Rob Klepper. A former All Star Circuit of Champions anchor announcer, the Brownsburg, Indiana resident provides the analysis on The Outdoor Cannel’s USAC Thunder TV series. He also anchors several shows along with Jenkins on racefanradio.com

“The additions of Bob Jenkins and Rob Klepper are right in line with what our CARQUEST presents THE BIG ONE event is supposed to be,” said Stafford CEO/GM Mark Arute. “They are at the top of their game when it comes to open wheel -open cockpit racing. This race is going to be top shelf and their calls will only add to the elevated stature that this race deserves.”

CARQUEST presents THE BIG ONE on Tuesday night August 15th features a 30 lap non-wing “open competition” style midget race and a 100 lap PRA Big Car event for the old style USAC Silver Crown cars.

Tickets, schedule and entries for Tuesday, August 15th’s CARQUEST presents THE BIG ONE are available at the Stafford Speedway office and on line at www.staffordspeedway.com www.staffordspeedway.com .
