On Thursday’s edition of NASCAR America, which airs live from 5 to 5:30 pm ET, we delve deeper into this weekend’s upcoming racing action at Phoenix International Raceway.

Among the topics we’ll cover on today’s show:

* We talk with Martin Truex Jr. about what’s behind his outstanding start to 2015.

* We also chat with David Ragan on how things have gone thus far filling in for Kyle Busch in the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota.

* Parker Kligerman uses the NBC iRacing simulator to show us how drivers must handle the tricky one-mile track at Phoenix this weekend.

* The latest news and notes with Nate Ryan of NBCSports.com’s NASCAR Talk.
