Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin win NASCAR's Budweiser Duel at Daytona; field for the 2014 Daytona 500 set.

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.

AAA Texas 500 Preview, Odds and Fantasy NASCAR Predictions

There are just three races left in the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season and heading into Sunday’s AAA Texas 500, none of the sport’s Big Three is guaranteed a shot at the championship.

Heading into the First Data 500, the 2018 NASCAR playoffs has been through a miserable stretch. Talladega was a four-car Stewart-Haas Racing freight train that gave us the fewest lead changes since 1973. Then, last Sunday a Kansas elimination race became notable for its unique ability to eliminate people from staying awake. The Round of 8 starts with some sluggish momentum in what’s been another difficult season for stock car racing. Pit road penalties? Pitiful passing? Zzzz.

As a NASCAR writer for more than 10 years, I’m supposed to give some sort of expert opinion entering this weekend’s inaugural race on the new Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL. Instead, I offer with a smile one word this sport needs to inject some genuine interest back into stock car racing.
