For the 2021 Cup Series season, Jeff Gordon will have company in his Fox Sports commentary booth. When the 2020 season concluded, Clint Bowyer was one of several drivers to retire from racing. However, he will still remain in the NASCAR paddock, joining Gordon in the commentary booth.

The two drivers have often dueled during their racing days, so the rivalry has resumed in the commentary booth. All in all, both of them had a lot of fun during the commercial. The scene started off with Jeff Gordon in an elevator, but he refused to let Bowyer on. As a result, the latter was forced to take the scenic route.

What to expect from Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer?

This little rivalry aside, it is great to see the two drivers get along well, away from the track. One thing is for sure, the Fox Sports commentary booth will have double the banter.

Whatever happens, the 2021 season promises to be hugely competitive. Although Bowyer is no longer racing, there are still a number of equally talented drivers. Additionally, as two former drivers, they can provide expert analysis on the goings-on on the track. Since Clint Bowyer recently retired, his knowledge of the sport will be a little more updated, compared to Jeff Gordon.
