Jeff Hammond

Jeff Hammond joined Fox Sports at the end of the 2000 Winston Cup season. He and partner Chris Myers host the weekly pre-race show from the famed "Hollywood Hotel" usually located near Victory Lane at each race track.

Jeff also contributes to the race coverage on Fox and FX with booth announcers, Mike Joy, Larry McReynolds and Darrell Waltrip. Jeff can also be seen every Friday night at 7pm eastern on Trackside Live on the SPEED Channel. He and show host Steve Byrnes bring you all the happenings on and off the track.

Jeff's career in NASCAR began in 1974 working as a tire changer for Walter Ballard. Becoming one of the best jackmen in the business, Hammond served on all three of driver Cale Yarborough's Winston Cup championship seasons.

Legendary driver Darrell Waltrip took over for Yarborough in 1981 and the Junior Johnson-owned team won yet another championship. At the encouragement of Waltrip, Johnson promoted Jeff to the crew chief position for the start of the 1982 season. And as the old saying goes, "The Rest Is History".

The combination of owner Johnson, driver Waltrip and crew chief Hammond set the sport of NASCAR on its ear. Two more championships followed and 43 wins as a crew chief placed Hammond in the record books as one of NASCAR's all time great crew chiefs.

Born on September 9, 1956, Hammond resides in Charlotte, NC and has three children Colt,Heather and Jacob. Besides his love of racing, Jeff also has a passion for horses, rodeos, team roping, and hunting. His hero's include his father and John Wayne.
