Eighteen races down, 18 races to go. The 2019 Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway kicks off the second half of NASCAR’s 36-race schedule, one of the longest in sports (February through November). Technically, just eight races remain in the regular season before the 10-race playoff kicks in to crown the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion.

NASCAR kicks off the second half of its 2019 season this weekend with the Quaker State 400 out in Sparta, Kentucky. The 1.5-mile oval, added to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series schedule in 2011, is only a once-a-year summer stop. There’s hope the new handling package will spice up an unmemorable racetrack, one whose recent repave has limited passing and helped contribute to aerodynamic dominance up front.

The last time the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series visited Daytona International Speedway, the season-opening Daytona 500 turned into a game of Survivor. A series of late-race wrecks eliminated major contenders, including a surprising Matt DiBenedetto, and left the race sitting in Denny Hamlin's hands. Hamlin's second Daytona 500 victory came in his first race with new crew chief Chris Gabehart; it was also part of a 1-2-3 Joe Gibbs Racing finish.

Camping World 400 (Chicagoland) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

The name Chicagoland Speedway has always been a stretch. The much-maligned 1.5-mile oval, the site of Sunday's Camping World 400 is actually an hour's drive and some 45-plus miles from the center of Chicago. That’s like putting a stadium in Stamford, Connecticut, and calling it part of New York City.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series emerges from a week off to start its summer stretch deep in the heart of wine country. 2.52-mile Sonoma Raceway sits within the beautiful backdrop of Napa Valley in northern California, an hour north of San Francisco. The winding road course offers its fair share of on-track storylines, a rare opportunity to produce an upset winner in a season dominated by a select few.

The biggest news in NASCAR this weekend may not have come from the 2019 FireKeepers Casino 400. Instead, it happened over 1,000 miles away in a Gander Outdoors Truck Series race in Fort Worth, Texas.

 

That’s where 49-year-old Greg Biffle, the former NASCAR star won in his first race back in the sport since Homestead-Miami Speedway in November 2016. Biffle, the 2000 Truck Series champion, earned $50,000 for the Triple Truck Challenge and put himself in position for more opportunities.

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.
