The NASCAR Nationwide Series heads back out west this weekend for week five of the series’ schedule.
JR Motorsports driver Regan Smith will look to make a dent in his current single-point lead over Roush Racing driver Trevor Bayne this Saturday when the NNS takes to the track for the Treatmycot.com 300 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. Saturday’s telecast begins at 4:30pm ET on ESPN with ESPN’s NASCAR Countdown pre-race show. The green flag is expected to drop at 5:17pm ET.
Allen Bestwick will call the race. He will be joined in the booth by former NASCAR crew chief Andy Petree. Rusty Wallace will sit in for former Winston Cup Champion and fellow ESPN analyst Dale Jarrett this week. Nicole Briscoe will host NASCAR Countdown. She will be joined by ESPN analysts Ricky Craven and Brad Daugherty.
