NASCAR America at 5 p.m. ET: Reports from shops of playoff teams

Today’s episode of NASCAR America airs from 5 - 6 p.m. ET on NBCSN

Carolyn Manno hosts from Stamford, Connecticut.. She is joined by Kyle Petty and Nate Ryan

On today’s show:

  • Kelli Stavast is crisscrossing Charlotte to see where several of the top playoff teams stand as they look toward this weekend’s race at Texas. Here’s what to expect on Kelli’s Shop Tour:

    • Kyle Busch and the No. 18 team are sitting in good shape after a top-five finish at Martinsville. Kelli talks with the team’s crew chief, Adam Stevens, to see why they’re confident of even more success in Texas.
    • Kelli also goes one-on-one with Mike Bugarewicz, crew chief for the No. 14 team of Clint Bowyer. After a promising day at Martinsville went south with a late-race spin, how does the 14 team plan to rally and score a win to reach the Championship race?
    • Another Playoff driver in trouble is Chase Elliott, who’s gone from hottest driver in the sport to facing elimination in just one week. Kelli checks in with the No. 9 team, which still has optimism for the rest of the Round of 8 - and they have a good reason for it.
  • The sights and sounds from Joey Logano’s thrilling victory in Scan All Martinsville
  • A preview of the upcoming Xfinity Series Playoff race at Texas
  • And with Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers set to face off this weekend on Sunday Night Football, we’ll ponder over who can lay claim to being NASCAR’s G.O.A.T.
