Granddaughter of Dale Earnhardt Sr. set to host eight-episode season

Season 2 of "NASCAR Hammer Down" is back and better than ever with the addition of Karsyn Elledge as the show's new host. Elledge, granddaughter of Dale Earnhardt and daughter of Kelley Earnhardt Miller, will undoubtedly bring her expertise and extensive knowledge as a racer herself and member of one of racing's most storied families.

"NASCAR Hammer Down" is a part of the Nick Sports fall lineup on NickToons. Nick Sports broadcasts sports-specific content for kids who are interested in athletics. Karsyn's debut comes tonight at 10 p.m. ET.

Along with its new, 14-year-old host, the show is changing up its format. "NASCAR Hammer Down" is being promoted as a magazine show for its sophmore season.

The NASCAR-themed show is set to air alongside NFL RUSH, in a two-hour programming block.

During Elledge's turn to play host in the two-hour Nick Sports TV block, she will take viewers to the track and back to the studio with interviews, pranks, celebrity guests and lots of fun facts.

Each episode will also include a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) NASCAR-based curriculum. 

NFL RUSH is set for a September 9th premiere date while "NASCAR Hammer Down" is slated to start on Sept. 30, both collectively airing from 9 p.m. - 11 p.m. ET.
