Today’s 90-minute episode of NASCAR America brings you news and interviews from Daytona 500 Media Day in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Carolyn Manno hosts in Stamford, Connecticut. Dale Jarrett and Steve Letarte join the show from NBC Charlotte and Jeff Burton and Marty Snider are in Daytona.

What to expect from today’s episode:

· The green flag on the 2017 NASCAR season drops Sunday, but today, the stars of the sport met the press for Daytona 500 Media Day. You’ll hear from defending Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin, defending Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and several more contenders in the “The Great American Race.”

· Erik Jones and Daniel Suarez look to be in the thick of this year’s Cup Series Rookie of the Year title. How are the newcomers preparing for their first Daytona 500? Jeff Burton sat down with them both to talk about it.

· American racing legend Mario Andretti is an icon in the open-wheel world, but 50 years ago, he captured NASCAR’s biggest event. Ken Squier takes a look at Andretti’s road to the Daytona 500 – which was much longer than most.
