The NASCAR Cup Series
The NASCAR Cup Series has been running since 1949. The series has been referred to as the NASCAR Winston Cup Series (1971-2003), the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series (2004-2007) and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (2017-2019) but since the 2020 season the naming rights are no longer subject to sponsorship deals.
The NASCAR Cup Series is the top division of NASCAR racing and a division for only the best drivers. The cars can reach speeds of over 200mph and there’s a total of 36 races per season. It takes a lot to be a NASCAR driver on this level and the pressure is hardly comparable to anything else driving cars with relatively poor handling in high speeds.
The season is divided into two segments where only the 16 best drivers get to race in the second part of the season. The first segment is made up of 26 races where the drivers get points according to finish placements and number of laps led. After the 26 races are completed the 16 best drivers will be seeded according to their table position. The final part of the season, the NASCAR Playoffs, consists of ten races where the difference in points is much less. The driver who’s picked up the most points after the final ten races is rewarded the driver’s championship trophy.
– This award is given to the driver with the most points after a completed season. The points are based on race results and number of victories.
– Same as the drivers’ championship but the owners’ championship will be based on each cars season record. If a driver is representing more than one car during the season each car will be viewed as a separate contestant.
– The manufactures’ championship will be handed out to the most successful manufacturer after a finished season. Chevrolet is the most successful manufacturer as it stands followed by Ford and Toyota.
The NASCAR Cup Series tracks
There are a total of 36 races during the NASCAR Cup Series season. The races are spread out over the US and while most of the tracks can be found in the eastern states some races are held in other parts of the country. The shape of the tracks varies and can be oval, egg-shaped, tri-oval, triangular and rectangular. Common for the majority of the races is that the drivers are running counterclockwise. Only on Sonoma Raceway and Watkins Glen International do the drivers run clockwise. All courses except three, as of the 2021 season, are paved with asphalt, the rest is paved with concrete. Last time the NASCAR Cup Series was held on dirt tracks was back in 1970.
The NASCAR tracks are in many cases spectacular venues that belongs to some of the biggest and most high-capacity stadiums around the world. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is as of today the highest-capacity sports venue in the world with a capacity of staggering 257 325.
