David Smith crunches the numbers for the Sprint Cup Series in his weekly "NASCAR Numbers Game" column.

The off week prior to the race at Indianapolis serves as a welcome respite to everyone in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series except crew chiefs who might be on the hot seat. One casualty of “chopping block week” occurred Tuesday morning when BK Racing relieved Pat Tryson of his duties as the head wrench for David Reutimann’s No. 83 entry.

Heading into the 2018 edition of the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301, NASCAR's annual Silly Season carousel looked ready to enter a permanent slumber. Most top drivers were locked into long-term deals and it looked like little, if any, driver movement would happen during the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series offseason.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads north this weekend for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301, competing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway's picturesque one-mile oval. Typically, it's the perfect spot to escape the summer heat but there's no such luck thus far in 2019. The hottest global summer on record in the Northern Hemisphere means temperatures will rise as high as 97 degrees during practice Saturday afternoon.

Eighteen races down, 18 races to go. The 2019 Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway kicks off the second half of NASCAR’s 36-race schedule, one of the longest in sports (February through November). Technically, just eight races remain in the regular season before the 10-race playoff kicks in to crown the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion.

The last time the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series visited Daytona International Speedway, the season-opening Daytona 500 turned into a game of Survivor. A series of late-race wrecks eliminated major contenders, including a surprising Matt DiBenedetto, and left the race sitting in Denny Hamlin's hands. Hamlin's second Daytona 500 victory came in his first race with new crew chief Chris Gabehart; it was also part of a 1-2-3 Joe Gibbs Racing finish.

The name Chicagoland Speedway has always been a stretch. The much-maligned 1.5-mile oval, the site of Sunday's Camping World 400 is actually an hour's drive and some 45-plus miles from the center of Chicago. That’s like putting a stadium in Stamford, Connecticut, and calling it part of New York City.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series emerges from a week off to start its summer stretch deep in the heart of wine country. 2.52-mile Sonoma Raceway sits within the beautiful backdrop of Napa Valley in northern California, an hour north of San Francisco. The winding road course offers its fair share of on-track storylines, a rare opportunity to produce an upset winner in a season dominated by a select few.
