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

Marty Snider hosts from our Stamford, Connecticut studio, while NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett, as well as Jeff Burton and Parker Kligerman join us from NBC Charlotte.

On today’s show:

  • Winner…and still champion! Jimmie Johnson reigned supreme for a record 11th time at the Monster Mile. What exactly makes Jimmie so good? Our panel will break down the anatomy of a champion.
  • Plus, we’ll have some words from Jimmie on his boyhood hero, Cale Yarborough. The two NASCAR greats are now tied on the Cup Series all-time wins list with 83 wins apiece.
  • Winless drivers have been a big topic of discussion of late.  Many notable drivers, including some past champions, are struggling to reach victory lane in 2017. With 13 races down so far, which one will break  through as we begin the second half of the regular season? Our experts give their take.
  • Scan All is back this week to show us highlights of Sunday’s overtime thriller at Dover.  Hear what the drivers and teams had to say throughout this electric race!
  • We’ll discuss today’s news that veteran Hendrick Motorsports general manager Doug Duchardt will leave the company at month’s end to pursue other opportunities.
