TNT’s Countdown to Green served by Sonic will feature All-Access Presented by 5 Hour Energy with Clint Bowyer, a behind-the-scenes look at his NASCAR Summer Series leading up to Kentucky. Additionally, the Toyota Camry Test Car — a new addition to this year’s race coverage — will continue to bring fans closer to the action on race day. Petty will take the car on the track to illustrate the roughness of Kentucky Speedway, while McReynolds will put his crew chief hat on for a pre-race segment.

Throughout the NASCAR Summer Series, TNT will celebrate Turner Sports’ top moments from 32 years of NASCAR coverage with a special thematic feature each week during Countdown to Green served by Sonic.

For this week’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series from Kentucky, TNT NASCAR veteran reporter Marty Snider offers his opinion on “What to Look For…” during the race:

- “Kentucky is a very challenging race track for the crew chiefs and the drivers. It’s very bumpy. That’s the biggest challenge. A lot of race tracks are bumpy in different spots…Kentucky is bumpy all the way around. It’s probably the roughest race track we run at, physically…but I think a lot of drivers love that. Drivers love that Kentucky has character and provides a challenge.”

- “It’s been such a dominant Joe Gibbs Racing track over the last couple of years. They’ve been very strong at Kentucky, but they have not won at a mile-and-a-half track this year. Can they win at the tracks where they dominated last year? This is going to be a big test for them.”

- “I was talking to Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s crew chief, Steve Letarte, and he told me, ‘You’re never going to have a driver completely comfortable at Kentucky’…and that’s ok. You’ve got to get through the bumps fast. You can’t make it comfortable for the driver, you have to worry about there being speed in the racecar. That’s going to be the big challenge for the drivers and teams this weekend.”

- “I’m going to pick Jeff Gordon to win this weekend. I think they have been running so well at this type of race track all year long, but haven’t quite been able to get the win. This track is similar to Kansas, where he won a few weeks ago, so I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Jeff Gordon gets the victory. If he could win, it would be a huge career milestone.”
