One of the biggest motorsport events of the year will take place this summer in Iowa! The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is set to invade the Hawkeye State for the 76th running of the annual Iowa Speedway race. This year’s running of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is particularly special because it will be Seth McKee’s last race as a professional driver. He will be retiring at the end of this season. The NASCAR fans in Iowa will have the opportunity to bid McKee farewell at the season finale in Louisville.
The season finale of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is one of the biggest events of the year. The last race of the season is traditionally held in Louisville, Kentucky. The entire city comes to a halt as they await the return of their favorite driver. Large banners are hung across the city and drivers are greeted with a hero’s welcome when they cross the finish line. The city is covered in green as the final stage of the race is held on the outskirts of town. It’s a special moment for the fans, the drivers, and the whole state of Kentucky. This year’s race is expected to be closely contested and it promises to be an interesting battle all the way to the checkered flag!
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is an annual sporting event that features the top teams and drivers from across the United States. The race is held at the end of the season to decide the champions of each of the four racing classes. This year, the championship race will be contested for the first time in three years because of the new format. The top four cars in each class will make it to the playoffs and the first two drivers from each class will advance to the championship round. The new format should guarantee close racing and some spectacular battles all the way to the finish. The race itself is three hours long and a lot of money will be on the line!
The 2019 NASCAR Cup Series Schedule
The 2019 NASCAR Cup Series schedule is packed with major events! The season kicks off in February with the Daytona Speedweeks, the premier racing event of the year. The next few weeks will be spent preparing for the season ahead while also trying to get a leg up on the competition. Then, at the end of the season, the drivers will put in their best race ever as they vie for the coveted championship title!
The schedule for the 2019 season is jam-packed with exciting events! The first major race is the Daytona Speedweeks in February. These are the first few days in the “New Year,” so the teams and drivers are out to make their names known and prove their worth. This will be a case of “Old School vs. New School,” as drivers from both camps will be racing each other. It will be an interesting test for the new format.
The next race on the schedule is the Auto Club Speedway race near Los Angeles in late March. This is one of the biggest races on the calendar, so it should not be missed by any motorsport fan! While there is no formal playoff race for the NASCAR Cup Series, this is one of the biggest races of the year, so there will most certainly be some form of playoff at the end of the season. The last two races of the season will be held in October in Texas and Kentucky, the traditional “Final Four” states. These two races will be among the biggest of the year. The championship round will be held in November, and it will be one for all the marbles!
