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.

Sixteen drivers begin their 10-race quest for the 2019 Monster Energy& NASCAR Cup Series championship beginning with Sunday's South Point 400. Seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson might be missing from that postseason field but the list still includes plenty of star firepower. Reigning champ Joey Logano will attempt to hold off a bevy of challengers beginning with Sunday's race at the 1.5-mile oval out in Sin City.

Can you believe it's finally here? At last, a weekend I've been anxiously waiting all season.

 

No, I'm not talking about the start of American football. Instead, it's the week before the playoffs in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Drivers and teams are headed from one iconic racetrack to another, jumping from Darlington Raceway's Southern 500 to the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Sunday, Sept. 8.

For years, the Brickyard 400 has been known as NASCAR’s crown jewel race that always struggles to meet expectations. Everyone wants to kiss the bricks but the actual taste you get when you do it? That’s how too many fans feel watching the racing itself. The same goes for the sport’s regular-season finale, no matter the racetrack, during the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoff era.

The Track Too Tough To Tame hosts its 70th annual 500-mile race for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on Sunday, Sept. 1. The Southern 500 is one of the sport's crown jewel events, a throwback weekend at Darlington Raceway filled with classic paint schemes and nostalgia. The sport's oldest asphalt track over one mile in length (1.366 miles, in fact) plays host to a grueling test under the heat of Labor Day Weekend.

It's one of NASCAR's most respected traditions, put back on the original date where it belongs. The 2019 Southern 500 marks the fifth straight on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend, a spot it held on the sport's calendar from 1950-2004 until an ill-fated decision to bounce it around for over a decade.
