NASCAR America at 5 p.m. ET: Brickyard 400 preview, power rankings

Today’s episode of NASCAR America airs from 5-6 p.m. ET on NBCSN and gives a final preview of the weekend’s action at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Carolyn Manno hosts with Parker Kligerman and Nate Ryan from Stamford, Connecticut.

On today’s show:

  • The importance of the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway has never been questioned. But it has now been underlined, as the race becomes the regular season finale for the Cup Series. Which driver outside the playoff picture has the best chance to save their season with a win on Sunday?

  • The Xfinity Series also heads to IMS this weekend, and their race is highly anticipated. Cars will feature the same aero package that spiced up the action in last year’s event - and was used by Cup cars in this year’s All-Star Race. Will we see more excitement?

  • As we get closer to the playoffs, where do the top drivers, crew chiefs and teams in the Cup Series stack up? It’s the debut of the NASCAR America Power Rankings! Find out how we came up with these – and who’s at the top.
