Well a lot has changed in the past three months. From personal driver changes of Dale Jr getting married to Carl Edwards giving up full time cup racing. Now JGR will have a rookie, Daniel Suarez, at the wheel of the #19 and their Toyota teammates will have their other rookie, Eric Jones.
Then there is the announcement of the new series sponsor, Monster Energy. They have signed on to lead NASCAR's premier series for the next few years.
Now in the new year we have the format changes for the top three NASCAR series. Segments, Championship and Bonus points paid (during the race) and after. Breakdown of the whole new system here.
