Things To Like In 2020 NASCAR Cup Schedule

So Darlington kicks off the playoffs on the 2020 Cup schedule? Nice. Not only are we talking about the Southern 500 on Labor Day weekend, it gets the playoffs started right, and right before football season gets going in earnest. That could be a really nice launch in a foreground environment. The second Phoenix race will mark the season finale. Like that too.

There once was time when the concept of a NASCAR race at Ind ...

NASCAR Recap: Jeff Kyle 400

[caption id="attachment_686124" align="aligncenter" width="520"] Courtesy: twitter.com/toyotaracing[/caption] Check another one off the list. Kyle Busch’s tale of two seasons now includes the kissing of bricks at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Busch’s third straight win makes a top-30 finish in the standings (and the Chase status that comes with it) far more likely. But, the flying Skittle may not be the biggest winner of the weekend at Indi. (more…) ...
