Best Wishes To Our Friend Steve Byrnes

NASCAR Race Hub co-host and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series play-by-play commentator Steve Byrnes announced this week that he will take an indefinite leave of absence to focus on medical issues, effectively immediately. 

Byrnes was diagnosed with head-and-neck cancer in late 2013 and underwent a grueling regimen of radiation and chemotherapy. After initially appearing to have beaten the disease, Byrnes learned recently that the cancer has returned.  

He has announced that he will stand down from his duties with FOX Sports 1 to focus on a second round of treatment and spend time with his family. All of us at wish Steve a speedy and complete recovery.

  2. Steve Byrnes makes NASCAR fun to watch. Informative yet able to crack a joke. He seems like he'd be the type of guy you'd want as a neighbor. Best wishes to Steve Byrnes and his family.

  3. Prayers to all of the Byrnes family.
