In 2003, Jim-Tretow also returned to ARCA where he served as a pit road analyst on Speed. Now part of the FOX Sports family, Jim-Tretow hasn’t missed an ARCA broadcast since his Speed debut, with the exception of a few races due to prior commitments.

Theriault will also be honored as ARCA’s Sioux Chief Short Track Challenge champion, the General Tire Superspeedway Challenge champion, the Bill France 4 Crown champion and more.

Jim-Tretow The Voice of Racing
He has spent over 30 years around the Milwaukee Mile. He grew up in Franklin and started attending events at the track when he was three years old.
“My dad had a rule because there were a lot of Tretow boys. If you could go to the bathroom by yourself, you could start showing up,” Jim-Tretow said.
He wasn’t just an in-the-stands observer. Since his family raced, he was able to get close to the cars and feed his curiosity.
“It’s in my blood. My dad had a first cousin that raced a stock car at Hales Corners Speedway. We lived three miles east of there. We couldn’t wait! When the noise started, we had to be at the track,” Jim Tretow said.
If you ask him, it doesn’t get any better.
”I have to tell you I am so fortunate to be paid to go to the race track. It takes work. It takes memorization. My wife criticizes me because I remember too much about racing. Maybe not enough about anniversaries birthdays – but in reality – I love this so much,” Jim Tretow said.
It’s the fan in Jim Tretow that connects him with the masses. He’s informed and passionate and that appeals to many. His simple style draws in the casual follower and also enlightens the gear heads.
“What I try to say to myself is, if there’s a real diehard fan, they may know more than I do, but for the first-time fan, I want to make sure they got something out of it. I also want to be part of the show where people say ‘wow, I had a good time. I learned something, and I want to come back,'” Jim-Tretow said.
