Pocono 400 (Pocono) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

The second half of NASCAR's regular season kicks off Sunday in the Pocono mountains with one of the most unique tracks on the circuit. Nicknamed the Tricky Triangle, 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa., has a unique style where all three of its turns have different bankings and lengths. The transitions are so different drivers sometimes feel like it's a mini road course.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series returns from its all-star break with one of its signature races, the Coca-Cola on Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Memorial Day weekend is auto racing's biggest of the year with the Indianapolis 500, F1's Monaco Grand Prix, and the Coca-Cola 600 all taking place on Sunday. There's even a little bit of crossover between two of the events as former Cup driver and current NBC NASCAR analyst Dale Earnhardt Jr. is scheduled to drive the pace car for the Indianapolis 500.

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.

NASCAR's new handling package for the 2019 season has perhaps its best chance to succeed at Kansas Speedway this weekend. The 11th race on the schedule will coincide with cool, nighttime temperatures that could pair with the 1.5-mile oval's variable banking to produce a competitive race.

 

The sport is certainly hoping for a boost with its 550-horsepower package. Thus far, it's played to mixed reviews on intermediates with the leader still showing a clear advantage in clean air.

It's out with the new, in with the old at Dover International Speedway's Monster Mile this weekend for the 2019 Gander RV 400.

GEICO 500 (Talladega) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

For years, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races at Talladega Superspeedway (2019 GEICO 500, Sunday, April 28 at 2 p.m. ET on FOX) have been the most unpredictable on the circuit. First-time winners have mixed with unimaginable wrecks, snarling packs separated by inches at the finish line. Talladega Nights was based in part on the outright insanity this type of racing produces on an annual basis.

Toyota Owners 400 (Richmond) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

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.
