Tony Stewart has been cleared of criminal charges today, and NASCAR AMERICA will have all the details today at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN. If you can’t watch on TV, STREAM IT online and on your mobile device through NBC Sports Live Extra.

Interviews are expected with NBC Sports Legal Analyst, Jack Furlong, and NASCAR insider, Nate Ryan, to bring us more on the story.

In the meantime, here are the other elements in today’s show, with Carolyn Manno, Kyle Petty & Bobby Labonte in studio:

  • Our Marty Snider stopped by the Hendrick Motorsports shop in Concord, NC, to chat with Steve Letarte, crew chief for the No. 88, about the recently announced 2015 rule changes and the upcoming Chase cut race this Sunday in Dover. The No. 88 can clinch a spot in the next round with a finish of 21st or better, so how will that affect the team’s strategy on Sunday.
  • Parker Kligerman uses the NBC Sports iRacing Simulator to show us the fastest way around the Dover International Speedway track.
  • We’ll also listen in on all the best radio bits from last weekend’s chaotic Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire in our latest edition of “Scan All 43.”

If you plan to stream, be sure to have your username and password from your cable/satellite/telco provider handy so your subscription can be verified. Once you plug those pieces of information in, you’ll have access to the stream.

During its layoff because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, MotoGP will become the latest racing series to enter the virtual world.

The MotoGP Virtual Race will be held at 9 a.m. ET Sunday, March 29 with 10 riders. It will be streamed on several platforms, including the Motorsports on NBC YouTube channel. Reigning series champion Marc Marquez is among the riders in the field.

The premier class of MotoGP has yet to hit the track this season as its opener was canceled and the next three races were postponed, including the Grand Prix of the Americas being moved from April 5 to Nov. 15.

Several other racing series have tried online racing in recent weeks.

IMSA held a “SuperSaturday at Sebring” March 21 in place of the postponed Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. NASCAR started its Pro Invitational Series last Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway and will continue Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway. IndyCar kicked off its six-race IndyCar iRacing Challenge with a Saturday race at Watkins Glen International that was won by Sage Karam.
