The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads to Sonoma Raceway this weekend for its first road course race of the season. This means it is a whole new ballgame when it comes to filling out your daily fantasy NASCAR FanDuel roster, as you'll need to pick the drivers who are good at turning left and right.
Michigan is U.S. home base for some of the top auto manufacturers in the country. It's a place where Ford is looking to cash in on some more bragging rights than usual: a third straight victory at the NASCAR oval right in their own backyard. Michigan International Speedway's two-mile oval in Brooklyn, a little over an hour west of Detroit, serves as the backdrop for the biggest manufacturer battle of the season.
This week, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads to two-mile Michigan International Speedway for the FireKeepers Casino 400. The race runs Sunday, June 9 at 2 p.m. ET on FS1 and is next on your daily fantasy NASCAR schedule.
It doesn't matter the size or shape of the racetrack: William Byron is red hot when it comes to NASCAR qualifying. The 21-year-old driver won his second straight pole on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series circuit and will start up front for the 2019 Pocono 400.
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.
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.
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.
Joey Logano returns to the track that changed the course of his career Sunday for the 2019 STP 500. Martinsville Speedway provided the mayhem that would propel him to win a series championship.
No one was thinking Logano back then as the laps wound down here during the race last fall. NASCAR’s Big Three of Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick had dominated the season to that point. The trio were widely expected to make NASCAR’s championship finale a private battle among themselves.
