"We couldn't be more pleased that Bruce is back for our re-opening season," said GM/COO Bob Klein.

Pasadena, California-born, Flanders' announcing credits run from the classic Hangtown motorcycle races to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, and from Mickey Thompson's stadium off-road races to being "type cast" in a number of blockbuster movies as, of all things, a racing announcer.
 
Flanders will be assisted at Irwindale by his daughter Megan, who will be up in the booth with him acting as his engineer, key grip, and more.
