NASCAR Legend Dies Due To Complications Following Surgery | Country Music Videos


He was the man responsible for bringing NASCAR to life for fans around the country. At the age of 83, Barney Hall passed away Tuesday, January 26th from complications following a recent surgery. He is survived by longtime companion Karen Carrier.

Hall was regarded as one of the best sports broadcasters out there. His smooth voice was a familiar sound to NASCAR fans for decades, and the news of his passing comes as a huge shock to the community. 

Hall was involved in broadcasting stock car racing for more than 50 years. He called his first Daytona 500 on the radio in 1960 and had been a key part of the Motor Racing Network’s broadcasts since 1970. In 2014, he called his final NASCAR race for MRN in Daytona for the Coke Zero: 400. 

Hall’s calm, cool, and collected radio voice made him a giant among the media. Perhaps the most trusted broadcaster in the sport, his name is one of two on the NASCAR Hall of Fame’s highest honor for media, the Squier-Hall Award. He and Ken Squier were also the first two recipients.

As the news of Hall’s passing spreads, members of the NASCAR community have turned to social media to express their condolences. 


Below is a compilation of clips featuring the legendary voice of NASCAR. Our prayers go out to Hall’s family, friends, and loved ones. Rest in peace, Barney Hall.
