Three-time Verizon IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon, who is among the six drivers in contention for the series title entering the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma at Sonoma Raceway, and 2012 series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay are featured on back-to-back episodes of "INDYCAR Chronicles" starting at 3 p.m. ET Aug. 30 on NBCSN.
The shows immediately precede the network's live coverage of the 85-lap title-deciding race on the 2.385-mile, 12-turn road course.
"INDYCAR Chronicles" with Dixon goes off the racetrack with the driver and his family (including his wife and daughters shopping at Target for his 35th birthday present) in addition to Dixon competing in the No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet during the race weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course earlier this month.
Hunter-Reay and his family host "INDYCAR Chronicles" at their South Florida home and the cameras also go behind the scenes at the Iowa Corn 300 at Iowa Speedway, which he won for the second consecutive year.
A programming note: NBCSN also will telecast live coverage of the final practice session (1:30 p.m. ET) and three rounds of qualifications (6:30 p.m. ET) Aug. 29 from Sonoma Raceway. Leigh Diffey is the chief announcer.
