Watch NASCAR America live at 5:30 pm ET: Valentine’s stories, team previews, Dale Jr.


Today’s edition of NASCAR America airs from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET.

Carolyn Manno and NASCAR Hall of Famer and NASCAR on NBC analyst Dale Jarrett will host from our Stamford, Connecticut studio, while NASCAR On NBC analyst Kyle Petty will join us from NBC Charlotte.

On today’s show:

* In honor of today being Valentine’s Day, several NASCAR drivers share their best – and worst – stories. Plus, which driver became the latest to tie the knot?

* With new format enhancements and driver changes, which drivers are set to excel in NASCAR’s “new era” and which may be on the hot seat in 2017? We’ll start by breaking it all down as our series of team previews begin. Today’s team previews feature Joe Gibbs Racing, Furniture Row, Stewart-Haas Racing and Team Penske.

*  Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s was forced to miss the entire second half of last season with a concussion. At the same time, the absence of NASCAR’s most popular driver for more than a decade created quite a bit of talk among younger drivers about their health and their future in the sport they love. They’ll explain the valuable lessons they’ve learned from Junior’s story.
