0 Comments

Today’s episode of NASCAR America airs from 5-6 p.m. ET on NBCSN and includes segments on Dale Earnhardt Jr. and recent parity in NASCAR Cup.

Carolyn Manno hosts with Kyle Petty and Parker Kligerman from our Stamford, Connecticut studios.

Among topics we’ll feature in today’s episode:

* Dale Earnhardt Jr. revealed today the paint scheme his car will carry in the Bojangles’ Southern 500 throwback race on Sept. 3 at Darlington Raceway. We’ll talk to Junior about the paint scheme, as well as his hopes for this Sunday’s Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis.

* Parity is definitely riding high in NASCAR Cup right now. Over the last eight races, eight different organizations have been victorious. Why is it happening? Parker Kligerman and Kyle Petty each offer their perspectives.

* As PJ1 traction compound and the ‘tire dragon’ become more prevalent, will track preparation be a bigger part of the race weekend from here on out? Pete Pistone of SiriusXM NASCAR Radio takes on that subject and more when he joins the show.

* What is the XFINITY Series doing to spice up the racing this weekend at IMS? We’ll take a closer look at the new rules package in place for their race Saturday.

Don’t forget that Denny Hamlin will join NASCAR America live at the NASCAR Hall of Fame at 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
