WATCH LIVE: NASCAR AMERICA at 5 pm ET — All 12 drivers in Chase Contenders Round


On Wednesday’s edition of NASCAR America (live on NBCSN from 5 to 5:30 pm ET), we strap on our gloves and go one-on-one with the drivers in NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup Contenders Round.

Rick Allen and Kyle Petty will hold down the fort from our Charlotte studios.

Here’s what’s on the card for today’s show:

  • Today was the NASCAR Contenders Round Media Day at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, NC, where 11 of the 12 drivers were on hand.
  • Our Kelli Stavast and Marty Snider traveled to the event and we’ll get extended interviews on the show with Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, Ryan Newman and Jimmie Johnson.
  • The one Contenders Round driver who was not at Wednesday’s event was Dale Earnhardt Jr., who was forced to miss due to scheduling conflicts.
  • However, Junior appeared on NASCAR America on Tuesday. An extended interview with him can be seen in its entirety online at MotorSportsTalk.
