Mike Joy And Jack Arute Jr. To Reunite In Stafford Speedway Announcers Booth Friday

SMS-LOGO-HOME-PAGE-2012Facebook has its Throwback Thursday.

But tomorrow night, Stafford Motor Speedway will have its own little Throwback Friday.

The former voices of the Stafford Motor Speedway will once again ring across the facility Friday evening as NASCAR On Fox announcer Mike Joy returns to the track.

Like the old days at Stafford, Joy will share the announcing duties for Friday’s 40-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Modified feature with Jack Arute Jr.

It’s all part of a special night all around at Stafford Motor Speedway.

The track will celebrate its Champions for Charities program with an all-star karting event. There will also be extended distance events for the SK Light Modified and Limited Late Model divisions, and fireworks.

  1. Don’t you mean Flashback Friday?

  2. going to be so awesome to hear mike joys voice again at stafford

  3. Someone should tell the ‘talent’ in the booth that most of the fans in the stands can’t hear most of their announcing.
    The cars might have mufflers, but they overpower the PA system. You might catch a few comments when the field is on a pace lap or under caution while running down the backstretch. Someone from the Stafford broadcast team should come out of the booth without a headset and experience what the rest of us can’t hear.
    It would be good for the fans if they did a simulcast broadcast on a FM frequency like they do at Waterford.

  4. Gerry, I do believe SMS broadcasts on 103.1 FM at the track. I caught the end of the MRS race last week as I was leaving on the radio in the truck. I believe that was the station.

    There are also actually ways to install ambient sound sensors that boost the PA volumes automatically so that it can be heard over the cars, however it does cost a lot of money to do so.

  5. Dingus, That’s great to hear. After further searching,I believe it is 103.1.
    I have looked on the SMS web site and could not find any reference to radio broadcasts.
    I’m at the track every week and I haven’t seen any signs or mention of radio broadcast. I’ve even mentioned it to a few local regulars at the track.
    I know Waterford has a sign with the radio frequency post.
