Watch NASCAR America Live at 5:30 p.m. ET: Dale Jr., Xfinity 2017, Matt Tifft documentary


Today’s edition of NASCAR America airs from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. ET, followed by a documentary on NASCAR Xfinity driver Matt Tifft from 6:30 to 7 p.m. ET.

Carolyn Manno hosts with Kyle Petty and Parker Kligerman from our Stamford, Connecticut studio, while Jeff Burton and Nate Ryan join us from Daytona Beach.

On today’s show:

* The “Great American Race,” the Daytona 500, is only five days away. We check in with Jeff Burton and Nate Ryan from Daytona International Speedway.

* After qualifying on the front row for the 500, Dale Earnhardt Jr. paid a visit to New York City. We’ll see highlights from his appearances on the TODAY Show and the Dan Patrick Show.

* The XFINITY Series season starts this Saturday in Daytona. With the departure of 2016 champion Daniel Suarez and the restriction on NASCAR Cup regulars, which driver will take advantage and be the one to beat this season?

* Parker Kligerman will jump into the iRacing Simulator to show us the challenges of racing on the high banks of Daytona.
