WATCH LIVE: NASCAR AMERICA 6 pm ET — Daytona nuances, Jr.’s Daytona 500 win, Ryan Newman, Kyle Busch


Thursday’s edition of NASCAR America – which is at a special start time of 6 p.m. ET – is all about Daytona International Speedway and Saturday night’s always exciting Coke Zero 400.

Rick Allen will be joined by Kyle Petty in our Charlotte studios and have a number of topics and features to cover, including:

* The guys will break down the nuances of DIS, most notably in how Saturday’s Sprint Cup race will play out there. What makes the 2.5-mile, high-banked track so challenging for drivers? Why do fans love the legendary track so much?

* Marty Snider will join us from Daytona with interviews of Kyle Busch and Ryan Newman, both former winners at the track.

* And a highlight for you Dale Earnhardt Jr. fans: we revisit Junior’s Daytona 500 win from earlier this year.

Don’t forget, a special start time of 6 p.m. ET for today’s edition of NASCAR America.
