The network announced during Sunday’s Cup Series race at Dover Motor Speedway that Richard Petty, Bobby Labonte and Bill Elliott will join the booth for next weekend’s Goodyear 400 (Sunday, 3:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM) at Darlington Raceway. Petty is set to join the broadcast during Stage 1, Labonte will be a guest in Stage 2, and Elliott will slot alongside lead announcer Mike Joy and analyst Clint Bowyer in Stage 3.

FOX Sports announced the star-studded booth lineup during Stage 1 of the DuraMAX Drydene 400 at Dover Motor Speedway (set to resume at noon ET on Monday on FS1).

All three are former Darlington winners. Elliott was a five-time winner at the historic 1.366-mile track, including three Southern 500 victories and a season sweep of its events in 1985. Petty won there three times, claiming the Southern 500 trophy as part of his 1967 sweep. Labonte has one Darlington win, securing the Southern 500 laurels in 2000.
