Wiki

Bob Jenkins (born September 4, 1947) is an American television and radio sports announcer best known for his work at ABC and ESPN calling NASCAR and IndyCar telecasts. He is currently the lead commentator for the IndyCar Series on Versus.

Bob Jenkins was born in Richmond, Indiana and grew up in the nearby town of Liberty. He was one of the original cornerstone anchors on ESPN when it debuted in 1979, working there as one of the most senior members of the network until 2003. His primary duty was anchoring NASCAR on ESPN from 1979-2000 with Ned Jarrett and Benny Parsons. The trio was one of the most popular announcing crews in NASCAR. By the early 1990s, the crew (sans Jarrett, who was contracted with CBS) would also cover races on ABC Sports. During the 1980s, Jenkins also occasionally called CART races on ESPN, prior to the arrival of veteran Paul Page.

Jenkins hosted the weekly racing magazine show Speedweek during most of his tenure at ESPN. Jenkins was the television announcer of the Brickyard 400 on ABC from 1994-2000.
