The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series returns from its all-star break with one of its signature races, the Coca-Cola on Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Memorial Day weekend is auto racing's biggest of the year with the Indianapolis 500, F1's Monaco Grand Prix, and the Coca-Cola 600 all taking place on Sunday. There's even a little bit of crossover between two of the events as former Cup driver and current NBC NASCAR analyst Dale Earnhardt Jr. is scheduled to drive the pace car for the Indianapolis 500.

No points on the line, $1 million to the winner and bragging rights within NASCAR's home base of Charlotte, N.C. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race sure does its best to carve a space for itself within a grueling nine-month regular season.

Digital Ally 400 (Kansas) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

One of the biggest surprises of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has been Stewart-Haas Racing pitching a victory lane shutout. Ford's best team throughout most of 2018, an organization that put 100 percent of its four-car operation in the final eight of the NASCAR playoffs, has started the year an awkward 0-for-11.

NASCAR's new handling package for the 2019 season has perhaps its best chance to succeed at Kansas Speedway this weekend. The 11th race on the schedule will coincide with cool, nighttime temperatures that could pair with the 1.5-mile oval's variable banking to produce a competitive race.

 

The sport is certainly hoping for a boost with its 550-horsepower package. Thus far, it's played to mixed reviews on intermediates with the leader still showing a clear advantage in clean air.

It's out with the new, in with the old at Dover International Speedway's Monster Mile this weekend for the 2019 Gander RV 400. The 11th Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race of the season features a return to single-car qualifying, an old school method of setting the field that had been used in stock car racing's top series for decades.

For years, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races at Talladega Superspeedway (2019 GEICO 500, Sunday, April 28 at 2 p.m. ET on FOX) have been the most unpredictable on the circuit. First-time winners have mixed with unimaginable wrecks, snarling packs separated by inches at the finish line. Talladega Nights was based in part on the outright insanity this type of racing produces on an annual basis.

The 2019 Toyota Owners 400 is the third Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series short track race on a track a mile or less in the first nine events. It’s typically a prime stretch for a driver who doesn’t have the speed at intermediates, the bread and butter of NASCAR’s schedule, to steal a win. But as we head into the first Saturday night race of the season we’re still looking for that surprise driver to make an appearance.

March Madness, typically reserved for the NCAA Tournament, was supposed to trickle down to NASCAR last weekend. Martinsville Speedway’s short track is typically an automatic for the most exciting action you'll see all year; just last fall, Joey Logano pulled the bump-and-run on Martin Truex Jr. in a championship-defining moment.

Brad Keselowski: 2019 NASCAR Season Preview and Prediction

Driver of the No. 2 Ford for Team Penske

When the playoffs started in 2018, Brad Keselowski was considered a favorite to make the Championship 4 at Homestead. Keselowski won at Darlington and Indianapolis to close out the regular season, and he opened the playoffs with his third win of 2018 and third in a row. A top 10 at Richmond gave Keselowski further momentum, but as fast as his streak started, it screeched to a halt.
