1 Comment

Today’s NASCAR America airs from 5-6 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Leigh Diffey hosts and is joined by Parker Kligerman, while NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett checks in from Burton’s Garage.

On today’s show:

  • Chase Elliott and his No. 9 Hendrick Motorsports team got some harsh news yesterday from NASCAR, which gave them a Level 1 penalty for violations found after Sunday’s race at Phoenix. Nate Ryan weighs in on the team’s plans, both for this weekend at Fontana and for appealing the penalty.
  • NASCAR goes Hollywood this weekend to close the West Coast swing. So which drivers would fit best in the starring roles of a Tinseltown blockbuster? Parker and DJ share their picks. Plus, Parker gets some laps in at Fontana when he jumps in the NBC Sports iRacing Simulator.
  • Last year, Erik Jones claimed Cup Series rookie of the year honors. Now, he’s looking for a great sophomore season back at Joe Gibbs Racing. Can the lessons he learned in his first Cup campaign help him? We’ll hear from Jones about that and more in his interview with our Marty Snider.
