Videos from Thursday’s NASCAR AMERICA are below:

Marty Snider, Bobby Labonte and Ricky Rudd make their predictions for this weekend’s winner at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Rudd thinks Ryan Newman has a real shot to win, after his fast test day, while Labonte believes Tony Stewart will enter the Chase.

The NASCAR America crew weigh in on the tight battle for rookie of the year between Kyle Larson and Austin Dillon. While Dillon has been quietly consistent throughout this season, Larson has had flashes of brilliance.

Jeff Burton joins NASCAR America to discuss how the newly formed Race Team Alliance could change the business model of NASCAR. Burton believes if the alliance works, competition on the track will improve and the sport will have a more collective voice.

Robert Wickens continues his recovery from injuries sustained in a crash at Pocono Raceway in August.

On Friday, Wickens posted a new video of his rehab efforts on his twitter page. In the new update, Wickens is shown working on a pedal machine while connected to electrodes as part of his physical therapy.

Wickens even quipped “I’m riding a bike!” in the short video.

The IndyCar Series community continues to rally around Wickens and offer support as he continues the rehab process, and several of his fellow drivers responded and offered more messages of support.

Prior to the season-ending INDYCAR Grand Prix of Sonoma, Wickens released his first video update since the Pocono crash, thanking everyone for their concerns and kind words of encouragement.
