The Budweiser Duel at Daytona, NASCAR’s twin qualifying races that set the field for the Daytona 500, enjoyed its first setting in prime time on Thursday evening. While the week leading up to the event witnessed practice crashes that forced seven teams to back-up cars, the Duel was a comparatively composed affair — until the final turn of the night.

All-Time NASCAR Cup Series Wins List

Richard Petty leads the Top 30 list with 200 wins
The drivers with the most wins in NASCAR Cup Series history

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. But the real fuel to the sport’s popularity is the need for speed and the thrill of the all-out competition — which often runs as close to the edge as possible.

Pocono 400 (Pocono) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

The second half of NASCAR's regular season kicks off Sunday in the Pocono mountains with one of the most unique tracks on the circuit. Nicknamed the Tricky Triangle, 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa., has a unique style where all three of its turns have different bankings and lengths. The transitions are so different drivers sometimes feel like it's a mini road course.

Gander RV 400 (Dover) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

The first nine races of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season saw Chevrolet get shut out of Victory Lane. And make no mistake: it was the equivalent of a 9-0 shutout in Major League Baseball. Heading into Sunday's Gander RV 400, the Camaros may bring momentum but they're still recovering from getting their butts whipped everywhere outside the giant superspeedways.

Talladega Superspeedway is ready to rumble for a stock car milestone we haven’t seen in over 30 years: a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race without restrictor plates. The 2019 GEICO 500 will mark the 10th race on the schedule and the first since 1987 at the track without those four-hole plates designed to reduce horsepower inside the engine.

Toyota Owners 400 (Richmond) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

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.

Richmond Raceway will shine under the lights this weekend in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’ first Saturday night race of 2019. Their second Virginia race in four weeks will kick off Saturday, April 13 with the Toyota Owners 400. It’s the ninth of 36 races this season, held on a .75-mile oval that runs like a short track but often races like an intermediate.

Food City 500 (Bristol) Preview and Fantasy Predictions: A Look At Darrell Waltrip's Legacy

The 2019 Food City 500 has given NASCAR some food for thought on their future. The news cycle at Bristol Motor Speedway was hijacked this week by the man who once won every Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race there for three-and-a-half years straight. Darrell Waltrip chose his Tennessee sanctuary, Thunder Valley, to announce his retirement from the FOX broadcasting booth.
