Still going strong
The first edition of Sprint Cup racing was introduced to the public in 1949. The event underwent a number of name changes. The first time it was known as the Strictly Stock Series, then Grand National Series the next year. Over the next few decades it would be known as the Winston Cup Series, the NEXTEL Cup Series and finally as the Sprint Cup Series. Sprint is the name of the Japanese subsidiary telecommunications company that is the sponsor for the competition.
The interesting thing about the series is how it maintains the interest of the viewers through its unique and fascinating scoring system. The total number of races that are held through the course of the season are 36. However, there is a break after 26 races. This is the end of the regular season in a way and from here on begins the postseason or the ‘playoffs.’ The last ten races are known as the ‘Chase for the Championship’ as only the top 16 ranked drivers are allowed to compete. Fuelling further interest in the races is the fact that now points are given not only for winning a race but also for number of laps led during a race. This helps in allowing drivers to catch up to runaway leaders and keep the competition close and fierce. Do not miss this wonderful event; buy NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Long Pond tickets now.
