When the Sprint Cup series began in 1949, it was called the Strictly Stock Series. After only a year, the name was changed to the Grand National Series. The name remained the same for the next two decades till it was again changed when the event was leased to the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company in 1971. From 1971 till 2003, it was called the Winston Cup Series. For the next four years, the event was leased to NEXTEL and was called the NEXTEL Cup Series. In 2005, the event was bought by Sprint which is a subsidiary of SoftBank, a Japanese company specializing in telecommunications.
The format for determining the champion racer is based on points made by each driver. There are a total of 36 races over the course of the season. However, after the first 16 races, the points are tallied. Based on the number of wins and the number of times each driver has led in laps, the driver rankings are made. The top 16 drivers are ranked and then the scoring system is again revamped in order to make the last 10 races of the season more interesting. The last ten races are called the ‘Chase for the Championship’. This is an amazing opportunity for you to run shoulders with the greatest in the game.
