NBCSN’s NASCAR AMERICA show will pay tribute to Justin Wilson, who died Monday from severe head injuries at age 37 after an accident at the Pocono Raceway on Sunday. It airs at 5 p.m. ET tonight on NBCSN and via live stream at NBC Sports Live Extra.
Wilson’s longtime teammate and friend AJ Allmendinger, who raced with Wilson at RuSPORT in Champ Car and with Michael Shank Racing in both GRAND-AM and the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, will call in to the show. Wilson, Allmendinger, Ozz Negri and John Pew combined to deliver Shank a win at the 50th Anniversary Rolex 24 at Daytona in 2012.
Additionally, Wilson’s longtime fellow open-wheel drivers Tony Kanaan and Helio Castroneves are set to call into the show.
NBC Sports Group F1 and IndyCar lead lap-by-lap announcer Leigh Diffey and veteran IndyCar pit reporter Jon Beekhuis will also join the show to discuss Wilson and safety in the motorsports world.
The IndyCar topics will go along with the usual NASCAR discussion, post-Bristol Motor Speedway, with Ryan Blaney and “Scan all 43” features scheduled.
Dave Briggs hosts from Stamford with Jeff Burton and Frank Stoddard at Burton’s Garage.
