Sprint Cup Racing was first introduced to the public in 1949. At that time it was called Strictly Stock Series. The next year the name was changed to Grand National Series. After twenty years, the event was leased to the R.J. Reynolds tobacco company and was renamed as the Winston Cup Series. The event was again leased to NEXTEL and renamed as NEXTEL Cup Series. Currently the event is financed by Sprint Corporation which is a subsidiary of a Japanese telecommunications company.
The season is spread over 36 races, with a break coming after 26 games. Points are tallied and the drivers are ranked accordingly. Only the top 16 drivers are allowed to compete in the remaining 10 races of the season as they have the most realistic chance of winning the event. This is why the last ten races are called the ‘Chase for the Championship’. After 67 seasons there have been two 7 time champions of the event. They are Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt. Jimmie Johnson who is still competing and currently just one point off the lead, has six championships under his belt. This could be the year when he wins number seven to join the legends of the sport. Buy NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Indianapolis tickets to find out.
