The death of Speed and its rebirth as Fox Sports 1 left many a gearhead concerned. We were worried that we’d lose out on some of the best coverage Speed ever provided, whether it be Formula 1, inane, car-related game shows or Barrett-Jackson auctions. Our concerns seem to have been misplaced, though (but not on the game-show front – Pinks is apparently never coming back).
Fox won’t just be covering the big Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction on Fox Sports 1. The coverage will bleed over to Fox Sports 2, and even the National Geographic Channel will get in on the action. All told, 22 hours of Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas, which runs from September 26 to September 28, will be spread across the Fox family.
Coverage kicks off on September 26 on FS2, from 5:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Fox Sports 1 picks up the baton on September 27 from 3:00 to 5:00 PM, before switching over to FS2 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. The day will end back on FS1, extending from 7:00 to 11:00 PM. The last day of the auction will air from 3:00 to 11:00 PM on NatGeo.
Returning for coverage of the auction will be familiar faces like Bob Varsha, Matt Stone, Mike Joy and Steve Magnante. Justin Bell and Ralph Sheheen will also be joining the team for other auction features. Scroll down for the full press release from Fox and Barrett-Jackson, and keep in mind, the times listed there are Pacific – we converted them to Eastern time up top.
