NASCAR Numbers Game: Taking stock of the 2013 Sprint Cup season

David Smith crunches the numbers to reveal some telling stats in the Cup Series
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.

Auto Club 400 (Fontana) Preview and Fantasy NASCAR Predictions

NASCAR's 2019 game of strategy under its new handling package hit a whole other level Friday at Auto Club Speedway. The sport’s final round of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series qualifying ended in embarrassment... and, should we say, a lesson in punctuality. When the clock expired, not one of the 12 drivers eligible for the pole crossed the finish line in time to make a lap.

NASCAR Fantasy Picks: Best ISM Raceway Drivers for DFS

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.

2019 Pennzoil 400 Preview and Fantasy NASCAR Predictions

It seems appropriate NASCAR's new 2019 handling package debuts in full at Las Vegas, the gambling capital of America in Sunday’s (March 3) Pennzoil 400. There’s symbolism in using Sin City to roll the dice, a place where casinos are a dime a dozen. The financial future of the sport, its popularity and competitive parity are at stake and no one knows how it’s going to turn out.

 

That’s one heck of a bet to put on the craps table, right?

NASCAR Fantasy Picks: Best Folds of Honor Quiktrip 500 Drivers for DFS

The 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season is off and running as we try and prepare ourselves for the unknown of the sport's new rules package. The racing will be closer and more exhilarating, but with that comes unpredictability, more so now than ever. Daily fantasy NASCAR will be a totally different animal beginning with Sunday's (Feb. 24) Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.

Typically, NASCAR’s Daytona 500 is the most unpredictable race of the season. Restrictor plate racing provides parity, giving hope any of the field’s 40 cars has a chance to win. The second race of the season, Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuickTrip 500, in Atlanta is supposed to be a return to normalcy. Only a handful of favorites are supposed to forge to the front as the sport’s 2019 championship picture takes shape.

 

Not this year.

Rule changes. Manufacturer switches. A new CEO. Some might say NASCAR is throwing everything but the kitchen sink at their product, hoping some of those changes will stick.

 

Welcome to the sport in 2019.

The 2019 NASCAR season begins on Sunday, Feb. 17, with the running of the 61st Daytona 500.
