NASCAR Under Heavy Scrutiny After Making Fatal Blunders With Kyle Busch & Jimmie Johnson at the Clash

Last weekend was the Clash at the Coliseum, which marked the first time the cars were on track this year. As always, Fox Sports was in charge of the broadcast, but it is safe to say that it was a disaster.

What happened?

Fox Sports did not help matters with an error-filled broadcast. The biggest pieces of evidence were mistimed camera shots and poor presentation. When guest commentators Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson were in the booth, their audio cues completely went over Fox broadcasters’ heads.

NASCAR’s blunder

Busch was in the booth frequently to offer a race analysis. During the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ), he noticed that there was a battle brewing between Ty Dillon and Todd Gilliland. Sadly, Fox went into a commercial break. When it returned, Gilliland had already made short work of Dillon.

It only got worse

Johnson noticed that his teammate, Erik Jones, spun. When it looked like Fox was going to show a replay, the screen froze for a while. When they got it back under control, the only thing they got to see was Jones struggling in his battered car.
