March Madness, typically reserved for the NCAA Tournament, was supposed to trickle down to NASCAR last weekend. Martinsville Speedway’s short track is typically an automatic for the most exciting action you'll see all year; just last fall, Joey Logano pulled the bump-and-run on Martin Truex Jr. in a championship-defining moment.

Joey Logano returns to the track that changed the course of his career Sunday for the 2019 STP 500. Martinsville Speedway provided the mayhem that would propel him to win a series championship.

 

No one was thinking Logano back then as the laps wound down here during the race last fall. NASCAR’s Big Three of Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick had dominated the season to that point. The trio were widely expected to make NASCAR’s championship finale a private battle among themselves.

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.

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?

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.

Kyle Busch: 2019 NASCAR Season Preview and Prediction

Driver of the No. 18 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing

Kyle Busch has been an enigmatic figure throughout his rise as one of the best drivers of his generation. He’s as fast as he is brazen, and he sees little need for varnish when the stark truth works just the same. Fans love him or they hate him, but the results are obvious: The 2015 Cup champion owns a collective 194 NASCAR national series wins at age 33.
