Host Krista Voda and analysts Kyle Petty and Dale Jarrett will preview today’s race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and review last week’s race at New Hampshire Speedway.

Five-time Brickyard winner Jeff Gordon will discuss his farewell tour and the emotions entering what likely will mark his final start at the Brickyard. The four-time series champion reflects on growing up in nearby Pittsboro, Ind., and the impact that winning the inaugural Brickyard in 1994 had on his career.

The prerace show also will include Rutledge Wood’s conversation with two-time Brickyard winner Tony Stewart, a Columbus, Ind., native. Wood and Stewart will explore the speedway’s famed Hall of Fame Museum, and reminisce about the prominent personalities who have contributed to its lore.

During Countdown to Green, booth analysts Steve Letarte and Jeff Burton will discuss the impact of heat generated inside the cockpit by the new rules package and the significance of Gordon’s final start at Indy.

Pit reporters Dave Burns, Marty Snider, Mike Massaro and Kelli Stavast also will have updates and interviews from the garage and pits.
