Veteran motorsports announcer Marty Reid has been axed from his post at ESPN, the network told the AP. Reid’s departure follows an on-air gaffe during the September 21 Nationwide Series Kentucky 300 race when he mistakenly called a win for driver Ryan Blaney prior to the finish. The three-decade ESPN sportscaster was replaced this weekend by Allen Bestwick who will call the remainder of Nationwide Series events this season.
