NASCAR America at 5 p.m. ET: Sonoma recap

Today’s episode of NASCAR America airs from 5-6 p.m. ET on NBCSN and looks back at Sunday’s race at Sonoma Raceway, which was won by Martin Truex Jr.

Carolyn Manno hosts with Dale Jarrett from Stamford, Connecticut. They are joined by Steve Letarte and Nate Ryan from Burton’s Garage.

You’ll hear details on Letarte’s new book, “Leading the Way,” which was co-written by Ryan.

What else to expect:

  • Martin Truex Jr. dominated the mile-and-a-half tracks on his way to the championship last season. In 2018, he’s again part of the title picture - but by winning at different kinds of tracks. After triumphs earlier this season on the 2-mile oval at Fontana and the 2.5-mile ‘Tricky Triangle’ at Pocono, Truex scored a road course victory Sunday at Sonoma. Does this make him the title contender everyone should fear? Plus: Our resident crew chief Steve Letarte breaks down the ‘fake’ pit call from Truex’s crew chief, Cole Pearn, that loomed large in the end.
  • With 10 races left in the regular season, only six drivers have won to lock-in playoff spots - meaning that racing for points will take on even more importance. We’ll focus on four winless drivers that failed to take the checkered flag Sunday, but had a good points haul that could make the difference between racing for a championship and racing for pride.
  • And now, it’s our turn! As NASCAR shifts to NBC and NBCSN, we’ll have a preview of what to expect when we head to Chicagoland this coming weekend.
