Earlier today, the Ontario County (N.Y.) District Attorney announced that evidence from the Tony Stewart/Kevin Ward Jr. case will be submitted to a grand jury for their determination as to whether or not Stewart will be brought to trial for his role in the Aug. 9 tragedy.
Today’s episode of NASCAR AMERICA will feature insights from NBC Sports legal analyst Jack Furlong on what the possible outcomes could be for Stewart, and NASCAR insider Nate Ryan on what today’s decision from the D.A. means for Stewart’s participation in this weekend’s Sprint Cup event at New Hampshire.

Here’s what else is on tap:
- In our most recent “Driver2Driver” feature with Chicagoland winner Brad Keselowski, the 2012 Cup champion said he’d be “devastated” if he couldn’t win more titles. We’ll revisit that chat and discuss what is more important in winning a title: Experience or Drive…
- Rookie driver Kyle Larson almost pulled one over on the big boys in Sunday’s Chase opener before finishing third behind Keselowski and Jeff Gordon. NBCSN’s Kelli Stavast chats with Larson at Chip Ganassi Racing headquarters about how he deals with the hype that has seemingly grown around him every week this season…
- And 2015 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Wendell Scott will be honored with a series of tributes next month at Martinsville. One of them involves Camping World Truck Series driver Darrell Wallace Jr., who became the first African-American driver since Scott to win a NASCAR national series race in last year’s Truck race at Martinsville. Today, Stavast also caught up with the man they call “Bubba” to talk about the special occasion.
