NASCAR racing weekend is finally here. Today, NASCAR will be back with ‘The Real Heroes 400’ at Darlington. The pre-race events and national anthem will start at around 3:30 PM ET.
Darlington Raceway posts a spectacular video showing the aerial shot of the legendary track. Also known as the ‘Black lady’ and ‘Too Tough to Tame’ the track will witness history in making. As the NASCAR will start up again for a 400-mile (643km) race on Sunday, May 17 at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina, despite the fact that onlookers won’t be permitted at the track.
There is no practice or qualifying, and Brad Keselowski will start from the pole. The starting lineup for today was decided using a draw. And the 1-20 will be reversed for the Wednesday race.
NASCAR plans to run seven races more than 10 days. After the initial three races at Darlington. First today’s Cup series race, and again on Wednesday May 20. An Xfinity race will run this Tuesday, May 19. After that, the race moves to Charlotte Motor Speedway, in North Carolina, for the Coca-Cola 600 on May 24. Additionally, an Xfinity race on May 25, a truck race on May 26, and Cup race on May 27.
In addition to the nonattendance of fans in the stands, the game is causing a couple of changes to attempt to guarantee the safety of the teams. There will be no practice session and qualifying races before any of the races except for the Coca-Cola 600. For the first time, we will witness a virtual national anthem at Darlington.
Each team needs to screen the 16 individuals it plans to send to the races for five days before the race. And NASCAR doesn’t want them to be the people who are working in the race shops. NASCAR will take everybody’s temperature when they enter the track. And everybody needs to wear a veil while at the track.
