The 2023 cup season, which will mark the 75th anniversary of the cup series, will make its official start with the Daytona 500 speed weeks. The event is scheduled two weeks after the unofficial season opener, the LA Clash at the Colosseum. The 500-mile race is expected to kick start another iconic premier stock car racing series.
The 2022 season will start with the speed weeks, the five-day racing extravaganza that will kick start the Xfinity, Truck, ARCA, and the cup series. One major update to the schedule has been the talking point in the cup garage. For the first time in its history, NASCAR has decided to scrap the Cup practice session before the qualifier. The cup season will start with the Random draw for the Cup Series qualifying line-up.
The season will not represent the 75 years of NASCAR history; it’s also an opportunity for the sport to showcase the decades of development it has gone through. A more competitive and safer Next-Gen car. The Daytona 500 will also mark the full-time debut of 2022 Xfinity series champion Ty Gibbs and P2 finisher Noah Gregson. The return of Jimmie Johsnon to the cup series with Petty GMS is another thing to watch out for.
