NASCAR America live at 5:30 p.m. ET -- Harvick interim crew chief, 2017 Cup rookies, Martinsville preview

Today’s episode of NASCAR America airs from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and continues to preview this weekend’s upcoming action at Martinsville Speedway.

Carolyn Manno hosts from Stamford, Connecticut, along with Parker Kligerman. Jeff Burton joins them from Burton’s Garage.

On today’s show:

  • Kevin Harvick’s No. 4 team announced its interim crew chief for Martinsville: Daniel Knost will take over while Rodney Childers serves a 1-race suspension. Also, rookie Daniel Suarez will have Scott Graves atop the No. 19 pit box, as Dave Rogers goes on a personal leave. How will this impact their preparations for Sunday?
  • We go in-depth with our Martinsville preview. What to expect, who’s hot/not and lots more, including the possibility the track may turn on its brand new lights for the first time on Friday if weather dictates.
  • The NASCAR America crew evaluates the 2017 rookie class in NASCAR Cup.
  • Parker Kligerman takes to the simulator on the best way around the .528-mile paper-clip oval, as well as how drivers must deal with wheel hop at the bouncy track and how grueling racing there can be.
  • Next stop on NASCAR America’s My Home Track: 50 States in 50 Shows is Connecticut! It’s the home of NBC Sports, 2015 Daytona 500 champion Joey Logano, and our track of the day - the historic 5/8-mile Thompson Speedway.
