0 Comments

Today’s episode of NASCAR America airs from 5:30 to 6: 30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and begins to look forward to this weekend’s action at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Dave Briggs host from our studio in  Stamford Connecticut. He will be joined by Kyle Petty, Casey Mears and Nate Ryan from NBC Charlotte and Steve Letarte from Burton’s Garage.

On today’s show:

  • Gear up for the start of NASCAR’s West Coast swing this weekend in Las Vegas. About 300 miles west of Sin City is Bakersfield, California, the home of today’s guest driver, Casey Mears. The driver of the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet will weigh in on Sunday’s race and his family’s deep racing history, plus answer a variety of viewers’ questions, including what Hollywood star he would cast to play him in a blockbuster movie.
  • Racers, by nature, are gamblers – willing to make bold bets that sometimes pay off with a win and sometimes leave them running on empty. Naturally, Las Vegas – where gambling goes far beyond the track – fits them perfectly. Hear from some of NASCAR’s best on why Las Vegas is one of their favorite stops.
  • After missing his home race last year while recovering from a broken leg and foot, Kyle Busch returns to Vegas as Sprint Cup champion. We reflect back on his 2015 season, which included his grueling recovery and cherishing moments as a new father.
