· For four drivers it will be “Over in Dover” as the field in the Monster Energy Cup Series playoffs gets reduced by four drivers this Sunday. The question remains which drivers will those be? Could a costly mistake or wreck take out one of the favorites and leave the door wide open? That conversation takes place today.
· Seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson gives us a glimpse into his charitable side, as he joins hundreds of breast cancer survivors at Charlotte Motor Speedway to “paint the wall pink” and promote breast cancer awareness. We’ll hear from Johnson, as he recounts this special event.
· Martin Truex Jr. and Furniture Row Racing also showcased their charitable efforts in hosting NeuroGroove RaceDay at Dover International Speedway. The program uses cutting edge technology to bring mobility to paraplegic, quadriplegic and disabled individuals. We’ll hear from Truex and find out how he contributed to the event.
· Parker will hop into the NBC iRacing simulator and take us around the track at Dover International speedway, pointing out exactly what drivers need to do this weekend to conquer the Monster Mile.
