Uncle Joe Benson at the Auto Club Speedway NASCAR race, October 2009.

October 9 - 10, 2009: As he has for every major race since the track opened in 1997, J.B. spent the weekend announcing at the Auto Club Speedway — this time as part of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Race For The Chase to the Championship. Starting with a Friday afternoon broadcast of his KLOS program, he returned as the Master of Ceremonies on The Fan Zone's big stage Saturday and Sunday before switching to call the races from the announcers' booth. Special sessions with NASCAR driver Ryan Newman and four-time NASCAR Champion Jimmie Johnson as well as a Foreigner concert kept everyone rocking!

Time to raise some money for the Jimmie Johnson Foundation and chat with an old friend!
