NASCAR America at 6 p.m. ET: Coverage of Dale Earnhardt Jr. retirement news
Today’s episode of NASCAR America, which airs from 6 - 7:30 p.m. ET, is devoted entirely to the news that Dale Earnhardt Jr. will retire from NASCAR Cup Series competition after 2017.
Carolyn Manno hosts with Kyle Petty and Greg Biffle in Stamford, Connecticut. Kelli Stavast and Steve Letarte joins them from NBC Charlotte. Jeff Burton will call in and Marty Snider will report from Earnhardt’s press conference.
We’ll have highlights from the conference, plus reaction from the NASCAR community (including thoughts from “The King” Richard Petty) and discussion about what lies ahead for Earnhardt, Hendrick Motorsports and NASCAR itself.
We’ll also continue NASCAR America’s My Home Track: 50 States in 50 Shows with a stop in Maryland! While the state hasn’t hosted top-level NASCAR racing in some time, it is home to one of the region’s premier short tracks at Potomac Speedway.
