The NASCAR Cup series is America's premier racing circuit, with a rich history of larger-than-life champions and a tall-tale origin story rooted in Prohibition-era bootlegging and rum-running.

I've got Georgia on my mind, and the NASCAR Cup Series drivers do, too as they head out to Atlanta Motor Speedway. The Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 is set to air on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on FOX. Get those NASCAR DraftKings rosters ready!
Atlanta is a 1.54-mile oval with an old asphalt surface — the third-oldest surface on the circuit, in fact. It's rough on Goodyears, meaning teams will need to help their driver manage tire conservation throughout the race.

Sunday’s Food City presents the Supermarket Heroes 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway kicks off the short track schedule for the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series.

Charlotte Motor Speedway wraps up four races in four days with Wednesday night's Alsco Uniforms 500 for the NASCAR Cup Series. It's a sprint race compared to Sunday, the sport's longest race of the year, as teams will only run 208 laps around the 1.5-mile oval.
Fresh off the longest race in NASCAR history, the Cup Series returns to Charlotte Motor Speedway Wednesday night for the Alsco Uniforms 500. It'll be the second Cup race in four days at the 1.5-mile oval doubling as the sport's hometown track. (Most race shops are located mere minutes from the speedway).
