The NASCAR Cup Series 12th point’s race of the season visited Darlington Raceway retro fashion for the Annual Goodyear 400 “Throw Back” race.

Opening in 1950, the 4 turn distinctive 1.366 mile oval indeed has a history of itself.

The unique oval, somewhat egg-shaped design and displays different Turn configurations. A condition which supposedly arose due to a local land owner refusing to relocate a local minnow pond resulting in the disconfirmation design of the Turns.

To tame the track, Race Teams must set accommodate these variables when setting and dialing in their car.

Penske Ford Driver Joey Logano will bring the race to green after winning the pole at the famed track which is characterized as “A NASCAR Tradition”.

Goodyear 400 – Recap:

With 33 laps remaining a collision involving Bubba Wallace, Kurt Busch and Martin Truex Jr. forced a caution in which would impact the outcome of the victor.

Hendricks’s William Byron followed the tire tracks of race leader Joey Logano as the caution flag flew.  After an aggressive restart, Byron edged into the lead with 24 laps remaining.

After relinquishing the point, Logano continued to close in, chipping away real-estate while advancing to the leader.

 Setting sites on the leader, Joey Logano’s Last-Lap “Bump and Run” enabled an opening to regain the post.

Justin Haley was third followed by, Kevin Harvick, Chase Elliott, Christopher Bell, Michael McDowell, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Austin Dillon and Daniel Suarez.
