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.

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.

GEICO 500 (Talladega) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

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.

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.

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.

Ryan Blaney and Chase Elliott are both good friends, the sons of famous former drivers and the faces of NASCAR’s next generation. Come Sunday, they’ll also be who the field starts chasing, on the front row for Sunday’s TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway (Phoenix).

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series travels to ISM Raceway for week two of their West Coast Swing. The 312-lap race will feature higher horsepower than Atlanta and Las Vegas, in addition to higher downforce. That will equal higher speeds; qualifying produced the quickest times we've seen at this one-mile track in three years.
