DARLINGTON, S.C. – Gentlemen, re-start your engines! NASCAR Cup Series racing gets back to live-track action this Sunday, May 17 at Darlington Raceway in Darlington, S.C. Martin Truex, Jr. will be driving the No. 19 Bass Pro Shops/TRACKER Boats and ATVs Toyota Camry in Sunday’s race, where the car lineup will be determined by random draw.
In addition, Truex will pilot the No. 19 Bass Pro Shops Toyota in a second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race scheduled for Darlington Raceway, Wednesday, May 20.
Sunday’s race, originally scheduled for Chicagoland, will be held at Darlington Raceway due to its close proximity to Charlotte, N.C., where many race teams are based. In addition, health and safety guidelines are in place, including fans not being allowed in the stands.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, tracks have been silent since the last Cup race, March 8, at Phoenix Raceway.
