Ryan Blaney ends a 59-race winless streak with a Coca-Cola 600 victory in the NASCAR Cup Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The NASCAR Cup Series kicks off the last half of the regular season with a crown jewel event. The Coca-Cola 600 is the longest race of the year and a race where the winner earns respect for their endurance. The Memorial Weekend event is kicked off by honoring those fighting for our everyday freedom. It is always a great event that allows Americans to share their gratitude. The atmosphere of this crown jewel is always a spectacular display for fans.
The NASCAR Cup Series power ranking is after Darlington Raceway. This weekend they race the All-Star event at North Wilkesboro Speedway.
The NASCAR Cup Series regular season has officially hit its halfway point with the completion of the Goodyear 400 at Darlington. Even in just 13 races, the season has already seen more than its share of unexpected twists and turns, and Darlington added more fuel to that fire. Top contenders Kyle Larson, Martin Truex Jr., and Ross Chastain were all taken out of contention in final-stage incidents, and instead, William Byron drove through and grabbed his third win of the season, becoming the first driver to do so this year. The win for Byron means there are no changes at the top spot, but the rest of the list sees some shake-ups this week as we head into the All-Star break.
William Byron avoids the big one to win at Darlington Raceway in the NASCAR Cup Series Goodyear 400 on Sunday.
The NASCAR Cup Series had one week remaining before the All-Star break. This weekend was spent at Darlington Raceway for a throwback-themed race. Many drivers sported throwback paint schemes to honor racing legends that came before. However, a paint scheme never stays fresh for long when racing at Darlington. This tough racetrack is known for leaving its mark on those who wish to conquer it.
