NASCAR RACE DAY LIVE Returns to Texas Motor Speedway with Hosts John Roberts and Kenny Wallace
As part of NASCAR’s 75th anniversary celebrations, the Texas Motor Speedway pre-race stage will also be the location for the return of the NASCAR RACE DAY LIVE show hosted by John Roberts and the irrepressible Kenny Wallace. The long-time NASCAR TV show host, Roberts, teams up once again with Wallace, the former NASCAR driver-turned-show host, for an hour-long show of driver interviews and always entertaining takes on the NASCAR, in general, and the upcoming Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 400, in particular.

Red Carpet Treatment
The route leading to the pre-race stage for driver introductions for the Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 400 will be kicked up a few notches on the prestige meter for this year’s NASCAR Playoffs race at Texas Motor Speedway. An actual red carpet will greet the drivers as they depart the pre-race meeting area located in the south garage building of the speedway’s infield. The red carpet will wind its way through the lower paddock area behind SpeedyCash.com Victory Lane, up the ramp to pit lane and then out to the pre-race stage at the start/finish line of the actual racing surface. Race fans with a Track Pass will be able to line either side of the entire route to cheer on their favorite driver and possibly get an autograph or two.
The NASCAR Playoffs weekend will be highlighted by the NASCAR Xfinity Series Andy’s Frozen Custard 300 on Saturday, Sept. 23 (2:30 p.m. CT on USA Network, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Ch. 90, and PRN), and the NASCAR Cup Series Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 400 on Sunday, Sept. 24 (2:30 p.m. CT on USA Network, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Ch. 90, PRN, and 95.9 The Ranch-local).
