Today will mark NBCSN’s biggest day yet in terms of NASCAR coverage thus far in the run-up to the 2015 season, and before this summer when NASCAR on NBC race coverage kicks off.

Friday will see NBCSN have 6.5 hours of coverage, beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET with NASCAR AMERICA. The one-hour show will air on-site in Charlotte, N.C. with NBC Sports Group’s Leigh Diffey hosting the program alongside analyst Kyle Petty and NASCAR driver Jamie McMurray. Reporters Marty Snider and Kelli Stavast will provide interviews and updates from the red carpet.

At 7 p.m. ET, NBCSN presents a NASCAR Hall of Fame Induction Special hosted by Mike Massaro. The special features a look into the lives of Hall of Fame inductees Bill Elliott, the 1988 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion and 16-time Most Popular Driver; and Wendell Scott, the only African-American race winner in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history.

Coverage wraps up with NBC Sports’ NASCAR Gridiron Challenge presented by Toyota at 10 p.m. ET. The special pairs NASCAR drivers with former NFL greats in a series of stock car races and a football challenge. Click here for more information.
