After nine months and 35 races, it all comes down to one weekend to decide the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series title. Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, an Kevin Harvick will duke it out over 267 laps at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday, Nov. 17 in the Ford EcoBoost 400.
Just 400 miles remain in the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. Homestead-Miami Speedway's 1.5-mile oval is the spot for their finale, the Ford EcoBoost 400, in which four drivers will compete amongst each other to win the series title.
It's the last year this track will host NASCAR's championship weekend for the foreseeable future. A 2020 schedule shakeup has moved the track's race date to March; Phoenix's ISM Raceway will take over this spot next year.
ISM Raceway's one-mile oval in Phoenix plays host to the penultimate Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race of the 2019 season. This recently renovated track will play host to a semifinal elimination that sets up next week's Championship 4 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Six drivers are fighting for the remaining two spots in that field after Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. have already earned their invitations.
After eight months and 34 races in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, it's finally time to whittle down the playoff field to this year's Championship 4. ISM Raceway in Phoenix hosts the penultimate race of the season, a Round of 8 elimination which sets up the grand finale next week at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
They say everything's bigger in Texas. But as the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads into the Lone Star State for Sunday's 2019 AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, the number of viable championship contenders has shrunk considerably.
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series returns to Kansas Speedway for the final race in the Round of 12. The Hollywood Casino 400 will be held on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 2:30 p.m. ET and will air on NBC.
Kansas is the second 1.5-mile track in the playoffs (Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the first, was the opening race). As is the case of tracks this size, cars will use the lower horsepower package with aero ducts.
After a wild weekend of road course racing, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series makes its second trip of the season to the Monster Mile. The first race in the round of 12, the Drydene 400, is scheduled for Sunday (Oct. 6) at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
It's a home race with a twist for most of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series teams this weekend, as the drivers will take to the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL for the second time ever. The Bank of America ROVAL 400 will air on NBC on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 2:30 p.m. ET.
