WATCH LIVE: Chase co-leader Denny Hamlin talks Phoenix on NASCAR AMERICA at 5 p.m. ET


Denny Hamlin has only finished eighth and 10th in the first two races of the Chase for the Sprint Cup’s Eliminator Round. But it’s been enough to put him in a tie with Joey Logano atop the standings.

And with a solid result in the Eliminator finale this Sunday at Phoenix, he may become one of the four to compete for the Sprint Cup championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Hamlin will call into today’s episode of NASCAR AMERICA to discuss his chances in the Valley of the Sun.

You can watch it today at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN or STREAM IT online and on your mobile device through NBC Sports Live Extra.

  • Jeff Gordon doesn’t usually go looking for a fight, but he’s had his share of clashes over his long Sprint Cup career. We’ll count down his Top 5 most pugilistic moments…HINT: Last Sunday’s fracas with Brad Keselowski wasn’t No. 1.
