May 1, 2020
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR plans to restart its engines with a flurry of races at two historic tracks.
NASCAR said Thursday it is set to return May 17 with an elite Cup Series race at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina, the first of seven events in an 11-day stretch across the top three series.
There will be no practice, no qualifying and drivers will jump into their cars for the first time since March 8 and attempt to tackle "The Track Too Tough To Tame."
"Events are going to look different than they have in the past," said John Bobo, NASCAR vice president of racing operations.
