Sunday was a busy day both on and off the track as Jeff Gordon won his fifth Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis and Roush Fenway Racing announced that Carl Edwards would not be back with them in 2015.
NASCAR AMERICA will discuss both of those topics this afternoon at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can also CLICK HERE to stream it online and on your mobile device through NBC Sports Live Extra.
Host Rick Allen and analysts Bobby Labonte and Kyle Petty will have highlights from Sunday’s race at Indy, as well as a discussion on Gordon’s accomplishments of 90 overall Sprint Cup wins and Brickyard wins in three different decades.
NBCSN’s Kelli Stavast also caught up with Edwards yesterday in Indianapolis after Roush Fenway announced that he would be moving on. You’ll hear Edwards’ thoughts on eventually leaving the only Sprint Cup team he’s ever raced for.
Labonte and Petty will also focus on Kasey Kahne, who lost out to Gordon on the critical restart of the race with 17 laps to go.
Sunday could have been Kahne’s best opportunity to win and get into the Chase, and Labonte and Petty will assess his post-season hopes going forward in the final six races of the regular season.

Saturday’s Punta del Este ePrix did not disappoint, with Techeetah’s Jean-Eric Vergne and Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler’s Lucas di Grassi engaging in a thrilling battle throughout the entire race.
Vergne led the way from the pole, having been promoted up the grid after original pole sitter di Grassi was ruled to have cut a chicane during his pole lap, but di Grassi was right on the back wing of Vergne the entire way and made several attempts to get by.
The intense battle between the two, which saw them nearly lock Vergne’s rear wing with di Grassi’s front nose, stayed remarkably clean for the most part, and Vergne was able to hold off all of di Grassi’s advances, a few of which can be viewed below, to take the win.
DS Virgin Racing’s Sam Bird was also on the charge, the British driver coming from ninth on the grid to take third.
Full race results can be viewed here. The victory sees Vergne extend his points lead over Mahindra Racing’s Felix Rosenqvist, who finished fifth, to 30 points, with Vergne on 109 markers and Rosenqvist on 79.
Bird sits third with 76 points, respectively.
