It’s time, once again, to rev the engines and put the pedal to the metal!
The NASCAR Cup Series begins its 2023 season on February 5th and spans nine months until a new champion is crowned on November 5th.
The Clash kicked off at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for the second year in a row. The drivers will then head back around the country to prepare for the 65th running of the Daytona 500 on February 19.
In all, the Cup Series will stage 36 point races as well as the Clash and NASCAR All-Star Races at historic North Wilkesboro Speedway on May 21. The regular season ends with a second race at Daytona International Speedway on August 26 before the 10-game playoffs begin at the Darlington race on September 3.
The 2023 champion will be crowned at Phoenix Raceway on November 5th. Joey Logano will attempt to defend his title, while 2014 champ Kevin Harvick will look to go off into the sunset with his second championship trophy before retiring.
