Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series are the most important championship of all that organizes NASCAR. (Nascar lineup for tomorrow can be seen one day before each race) Its spectacularity and the speed of the series cars in the oval circuits have made them very popular in the United States. In 2019, they have 36 races.
Motor sport is at our fingertips much easier than it was thirty years ago. Pay TV and internet passes to different categories go up like foam. Here’s a brief summary of where to see what category in this 2018 we just started.
It should be said that this information may vary from this moment until the season of each of the competitions begins. The image rights agreements are very volatile, and it is an approximation to what we will see this season.
They maintain the 36 traditional dates of the last years where the first race and the most important will remain the 500 miles of Daytona, but will be on the weekend that traditionally was: the second Sunday in February, which coincides with a traditional date In the United States, in this case it was February 18. Who was the winner was Austin Dillon took the first victory of the year.
The 27-year-old American led only one of the 207 laps that had the competition and took revenue from the incident involving 13 cars two turns of the outcome. Ryan Blaney, who was in the lead during 118, was unable to hold the place of privilege; Denny Hamlin and Kyle Larson also took the lead, but finally he was born in North Carolina who had a stroke of luck to win.
Another novelty is that the Brickyard 400, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, will no longer be a regular season date, and is now the last date prior to the start of the playoffs. The race will be on September 9th.
On the other hand, for the first time there will be a circuit in the playoffs. This is the Charlotte Motor Speedway mixed circuit, which is 3,620 meters long.

Nascar on Iphone and Android
For all racing enthusiasts, I inform them that they can now watch the NASCAR season directly on their IOS and Android mobile devices, but they must pay for some services or they will have a little limited. The applications are free and work on IOS and Android, but they will have purchases within the application to release some types of content.
The application is more focused on information, as it will teach us about competitors, careers, news and some of the main events in video. In addition, we will be able to visualize social information of competitors with links that redirect us to their Twitter accounts or other related to NASCAR, along with other social functions of the application.
We will be able to see the agenda of the season and buy tickets for the races from the app itself. In addition, it will provide live practice videos and ratings, although such content is likely to be exclusive to paying users, and pay for any other user.
Something that if the users will benefit greatly, it is with a full coverage in the races, from video to the audio inside the cars, alternative views of the cameras and the table of positions in real time. There will be information from your favorite drivers, such as the current position and telemetry information, and you will be able to select your favorite driver too, although it would be better if you could select more than one.
How Much Money Do NASCAR Drivers Make
The National Stock Car Competition Association, or NASCAR, is a major organization that coordinates live racing events that routinely attract thousands of people to the stadium and millions of viewers every weekend during the season. Surprisingly, to the eye you get so much attention, NASCAR drivers earn far less than their counterparts in other competitions. The salary of a NASCAR driver mostly consists of a base salary with additional bonuses depending on where they end up. Experienced pilots can also find additional ways to earn money, including sponsorships or merchandise.
NASCAR drivers’ salary information is difficult to obtain as it is not available to the public. Pilots are treated more as independent contractors than as union employees who are on sports teams and much of the information about wages remains private. In 2007, the lawsuit for the breakup of the contract initiated by Sterling Marlin and Joe Nemechek against the owners of their respective teams revealed that both drivers, considered as average wage earners, earned $1.2 million that year. Drivers also earn 40 to 45 percent of the prize money they win for their teams throughout the year. This money is normally considered to be part of the pilot’s overall salary and can significantly increase their annual earnings. Jimmie Johnson earned $15.7 million in 2007 after winning the Daytona 500, Brickyard 400 and Nextel Cup.
Due to several award programs available to veteran drivers with good records, finishing in the highest places does not necessarily indicate that the driver will earn more money. Each season’s sprint cup winners are eligible for the following year’s Winner’s Circle Program, which pays $130,000 for each race between 10 and 12 drivers. Other award programs include the Gatorade Front Runner Award, which pays $10,000 to the driver who is the leader for more laps regardless of the final winner, and television awards, winnings from bags that decrease based on the final result, similar to golf and other tournament-type sports.
Merchandise and sponsorships
Royalties earned from merchandise sales and personal sponsorships increase the pilot’s salary. In 2009, four pilots; Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon each won more than $1 million from merchandise sales alone. Product sponsorships can also increase the pilot’s profits with the advantage of more advertising. Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon earned $20 million and $15 million respectively from sponsorships in 2007.
Compared to other sports, a NASCAR driver’s wages are disproportionate to the amount of money entering the NASCAR industry. Golf or tennis players can earn more than $1 million for winning a tournament, but drivers who win NASCAR races earn less than $1 million for a race, unless the race is a main event like the Daytona 500. In 2007, only Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. entered the Sports list
