0 Comments

On NBCSN from 5-6 p.m. today, NASCAR America goes in-depth on Martin Truex Jr.’s victory at Pocono Raceway.

Rick Allen will host from our Stamford, Conn., studio with Steve Letarte and Jeff Burton.

Among the featured topics:

  • Martin Truex Jr. scored his first triumph Sunday in the Sprint Cup Series with Furniture Row Racing. Truex Jr. has overcome many personal and professional hardships life over the past two years, so his third career win in NASCAR’s premier series was particularly special for the driver of the No. 78 Chevrolet. We discuss the importance of Truex ending a nearly three-year Sprint Cup winless drought and examine some reactions to the win from other drivers, including the sport’s most popular driver.
  • Sunday’s race was a frustrating one for Jeff Gordon and crew chief Alan Gustafson, who bickered over strategy in a combative discussion on the team radio. We discuss what went wrong, and our former driver-crew chief analyst duo of Burton and Letarte dissect the relationship as a whole.
  • A late wreck between A.J. Allmendinger and Ryan Newman eliminated both drivers’ Chevrolets, but things apparently aren’t settled for Newman. We discuss the brewing feud.
