NASCAR Broadcasting Legend Barney Hall Dies At Age 83
- Updated: January 27, 2016
Hall of Fame broadcaster Barney Hall, a cornerstone of MRN’s NASCAR coverage since the network’s founding in 1970, died Tuesday at the age of 83 from complications following a recent medical procedure.
Hall was widely known for his calm voice and unmatched storytelling. He was part of MRN’s award-winning race coverage since the network’s debut in 1970. Prior to that, Hall served as Bristol Motor Speedway’s first public address announcer, called his first Daytona 500 in 1960 and missed only four broadcasts in the 57-year history of “The Great American Race.”
On July 6, 2014, he worked his final race, calling Aric Almirola’s rain-shortened win at Daytona International Speedway, which returned the iconic #43 Richard Petty Motorsports entry to Victory Lane.
Mr. Hall is survived by Karen Carrier, the love of his life for 35 years, an aunt and several cousins. The NASCAR community sends it’s thoughts out to this broadcasting legend’s family during their time of grieving.
