NASCAR-CUP NEWS & INFORMATIONS
The NASCAR Cup Series is the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing's premier racing series (NASCAR). The Strictly Stock Division was established in 1949, while the Grand National Division was used from 1950 to 1970. The NASCAR Winston Cup Series (1971–2003) was born in 1971, when the series began leasing its naming rights to the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company.
The season is split up into two parts. The championship is decided by a points system in which points are granted based on finish position and laps lead. After the first 26 races, 16 drivers are ranked based on their overall number of wins. They are chosen chiefly based on wins during the first 26 races. They compete in the final ten races, where minimal point difference is. This is known as the NASCAR playoffs.
