Joey Barnes

Joey Barnes is the Global IndyCar Editor for Motorsport.com. A regular on the racing scene since 2013, the journey for Joey started by covering a Grand-Am event at Circuit of The Americas in his home state of Texas. He has since primarily focused on the IndyCar Series, with appearances in the garages of NASCAR, paddocks of Formula 1, IMSA and World Endurance Championship, while also occasionally engulfing clouds of dust at the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals and select Supercross rounds. With previous stops at Autoweek, IndyCar.com, and RACER, among others, Joey evolved from the singular task as a freelance writer to advanced roles behind the copy desk and alongside editorial teams prior to joining Motorsport.com in September 2023. He is also the founder of Motorsports Tribune, an outlet centered around developing aspiring journalists. Recognized as a multi-time award winner by the National Motorsports Press Association, Joey currently resides in Dallas-Fort Worth with his trusty four-legged canine companion, Rocket.
