Nascar Season Is Here

By David Jacobs | April 3rd, 2014

As NASCAR officially enters the heart of its season, there are many racing fans looking to see who will emerge as the leader of this season. As the highly watched Sprint Cup Series has been officially unfolding, NASCAR fans have been treated to one of the most exciting and unpredictable seasons in recent years. There have been six different races so far in the series, and fans have seen six different winners emerge. This has been both an unlikely and unusual occurrence and one that has proven that in NASCAR virtually anything is possible. One of the most recent win came at the Martinsville Speedway when Kurt Busch walked away in the top spot, much to the surprise of fans.

While there have only been six races so far in the Sprint Cup series, fans are already wondering what will happen at the end of the season after 26 races have been completed. If this keeps up, what will happen when NASCAR has to narrow down the field to the 16 top racers, if more than 16 drivers have run races. In the past single victories have almost always guaranteed drivers a spot in the end of season race-off, but with the current season going the way it has been, there could be winning drivers who do not make the cut.
