1 Comment

Today’s episode of NASCAR America airs from 6 – 7:30 p.m. on NBCSN and analyzes all of the major storylines coming out of the first race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup at Chicagoland Speedway.

Dave Briggs hosts with Dale Jarrett & Sam Hornish Jr. in Stamford, Connecticut. Steve Letarte joins them in Burton’s Garage.

· Martin Truex Jr. is the first driver locked in to the second round of the Chase with his win at Chicagoland Speedway. How do all the other Chase contenders fall after the weekend? Jarrett, Letarte, and Hornish weigh in on who’s looking good coming out of the playoff opener and who needs to come up big next week at New Hampshire.

· Truex’s win was not without controversy, as his car failed post-race laser inspection at Chicagoland. His Furniture Row Racing team has now given their side of the story, and you’ll see what they had to say in today’s show.

· Hendrick Motorsports appeared to return to its usual form on Sunday, and both of its Chase contenders – rookie Chase Elliott and six-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson – had a shot at victory. We’ll hear post-race reaction from both of them and break down their respective days.

· Team Penske opened the Chase with top-five finishes from both Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano. The latter talks with NASCAR on NBC’s Marty Snider about his second-place finish on Sunday.

· Team Penske captured the 2016 IndyCar title on Sunday with a dominant win at Sonoma Raceway from new champion Simon Pagenaud. We’ll have a full recap.
