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.

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.

Digital Ally 400 (Kansas) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

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.

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.

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.

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.
