Krista Voda, NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett and Kyle Petty will join us from NBC Charlotte.

Among the topics on today’s show:

* One day after Hendrick Motorsports announced Kasey Kahne’s departure at season’s end, multiple outlets are reporting that XFINITY Series star William Byron will be his replacement in 2018. The 19-year-old Byron has been wildly successful on his way up the NASCAR ladder, but is he ready for the Cup Series? We’ll discuss.

* With 4 races left in the regular season, the battle for the three remaining Monster Energy Cup Series playoff spots will only get more intense. Which drivers around the bubble should be feeling good about their chances to make it in?

* It’s our Tuesday tradition: All the sights and sounds of another thrilling road course event in Scan All: Watkins Glen.
