The 2018 NASCAR Cup Season is just around the corner! The season will begin on March 4th and run through October, with each race weekend being three hours or longer. The season finale will be held on October 28th at the legendary Kansas Speedway in the form of the FedEx Championship Race, a three-hour spectacle that will undoubtedly be viewed by thousands of fans as well as millions more across the globe who will be following the event live on TV.
One of the most popular spectator sports in the United States, NASCAR has experienced a boom in popularity in recent years, with live attendance increasing from 1.73 million in 2016 to 1.92 million in 2018.
The sport is so popular, in fact, that it has been able to create its own unique language. This season, fans can expect to hear “whites”, “reds”, and “primes” being shouted at them as they walk into the stadium. Not exactly English, but close.
What Is A Ticket To Sit Down?
Unlike most sports, which have box scores that are easily accessible for fans, many NASCAR races don’t have a clear winner. This is mainly because the nature of the sport is that there is often more than one car involved in a crash, meaning that not all the drivers may end up finishing the race. For this reason, a lot of the drama that comes with a typical sports game is absent from a NASCAR event. Still, there is a clear winner, and it’s often the owner of the car that suffered the least amount of damage. This is generally determined by a “timely-not-timeless” scoring system, where the drivers are given scores for their performances that are then totalled at the end.
What Is The Timeless Scoring System?
Ticket prices for Kansas are listed at the bottom of this article, but it’s important to note that some are much more expensive than others. There is a reason why fans are paying such high prices for tickets to the prestigious Brickyard 400: it’s because of the scoring system used at the end of each race. This is where things can get a little bit tricky; essentially, the last race of the season determines the champion, with the season champion being the driver who earned the most points during the year. If two or more drivers are tied for the most points, then the tie is resolved by a race at a neutral site. This scoring system was first used at the end of the 1995 season, with the exception of the Chase for the Sprint Cup, which began in 2015.
Do Points Matter In The Playoffs?
In most sports, seasons are structured so that the winner of the league is the team that earns the most points at the end of the year. In the case of NASCAR, this means that the points from the last race of the season will matter in the playoffs, as these are used to determine who will face whom in the final race. This is why, if two or more drivers end up tied for the win at the end of the season, they’ll have a tiebreaker race to determine the champion. If a season ends in a tie, the tied drivers will meet in a playoff where the winner will be determined by the most laps led. If the season ends in a tie again, the tie will be resolved by a race at a neutral site. In other words, the last race of the year will always be necessary in NASCAR.
One of the most interesting aspects of a NASCAR ticket is the access that you get to enjoy special fan-only experiences. If you’ve been to a game before and are a member of the Loyalty program, you’ll know what I’m talking about. These are the type of experiences where you get to feel like a VIP even when paying regular price for your ticket. As for the playoffs, there is also the “Legacy” ticket, which grants access to the Museum of Art in downtown Kansas City. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to see the biggest names in NASCAR history, as well as learn about their legacies from the people who know them best. While some may find this a bit excessive, the price is certainly right.
How Many Cars Will Run At The Kansas Speedway?
The grandstands at the Kansas Speedway hold around 50,000 fans, with standing room only available outside for the larger crowd that opts to circle the track on their bicycles. This year, the track will only host two Sprint Cup events, with the other eight races being featured events on the NASCAR schedule. The reason for this is that the track is undergoing a massive renovation, with some stands being torn down and new ones being built with greater accessibility in mind. The first event of the season will be the Rolex 24 At Daytona in February, with the Kansas Speedway GP taking place on August 26th.
What Does “The Biggest Baddest Race Of The Year” Mean?
For years, NASCAR fans have been waiting for the season finale, known as the “Biggest Baddest Race of the Year”, with 2019 not exactly living up to expectations. This is mainly due to the fact that, despite the hype leading up to the event, the actual racing was somewhat underwhelming. Still, the race itself was a spectacle, pitting a number of drivers against each other in a frantic bid to be the first through the checkered flag. While some may see this as a criticism, the truth is that not many sports offer the same level of competition that is on display every week throughout the NASCAR season. This is a great thing for fans, as it means that every race is worthwhile, regardless of the outcome. Still, it’s been a while since this race lived up to its hype, with 2019 being the first time in years that it didn’t feature a winner that went on to win the Cup championship. This may be because it was the final race of the season and the championship had already been decided. Still, it’s certainly not the worst thing that ever happened at the end of a NASCAR season. While waiting for the “Biggest Baddest Race of the Year”, fans can look forward to the smaller races throughout the season, which are frequently just as exciting. Plus, you never know what might happen at the end of the year, with things often changing as the season progresses. This is one of the draws of the sport, which is why NASCAR continues to grow in popularity each year.
