From 1971 till 2003 it was called the Winston Cup Series and from 2004-2007 it was called the NEXTEL Cup Series till it became the Sprint Cup Series.
The format of the Cup is such that over the course of a regular season, drivers are awarded points on the basis of their positions at the end of the race. In addition to this, they are also awarded points according to the number of laps in which they led. The season has a unique mid-way break after 26 races. The points are calculated and the drivers are ranked according to the performance. Only the top 16 drivers are allowed to participate in the last 10 races of the season with a different scoring system which gives drivers more opportunity to catch up. This last portion of the season is called the ‘Chase for the Championship’.
According to the current ranking, the top five drivers are Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin and Jimmie Johnson.
