Nascar Sprint Cup Series Irwin Tools Night Race Tickets
One of the most exciting car racing series presented by NASCAR is the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. It has a unique winning system which is points based. Depending upon the number of laps led and finishing placement, a driver is given a particular number. To make car racing even more interesting, NASCAR has divided this Series into two parts, the first segment comprises of 26 races and the second, 10 races. Only twelve drivers are allowed to compete in the second round. Since second round is the final round, it is also called the Chase for the Championship.
The very famous Daytona 500 is also part of this Series. Daytona 500 is also the most prestigious race, which is viewed by 16 million people on television alone. What makes this Series different from other race series is the body of its participating cars. With powerful engines but simple body structure, not very aerodynamic and high weight, these cars are very hard to handle. Driving these rather difficult cars takes an expert driver. The combination of speed and driver’s expertise makes this Series so exciting for the fans.
