0 Comments

Today’s episode of NASCAR America is the last preview of this weekend at Darlington Raceway before cars get on the track Saturday. The episodes airs from 6 – 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

Dave Briggs hosts with Brian Vickers in Stamford, Connecticut. Steve Letarte joins them from Burton’s Garage

On today’s show:

· We’ve focused on the Chase bubble drivers entering the Southern 500, but today we’ll weigh the chances of those farther back in the Chase standings to figure out who’s capable of a season-saving win.

· All four Joe Gibbs Racing drivers have won at Darlington in the past. After a so-so weekend in Michigan, can JGR get back to their winning ways at the Lady in Black?

· Xfinity Series veteran Elliott Sadler calls into the show to talk about his chances this weekend at Darlington – and his special throwback with a connection to NASCAR on NBC’s Dale Jarrett.

· In our Social Pit Stop, Dale Earnhardt Jr. tweets about meeting a 90-year old fan, Matt Kenseth throws out the first pitch at a Phillies game, and Kyle Larson hands out school supplies to local students in Darlington, South Carolina.
