Brief History

It was first called the Strictly Stock Division upon its inception in 1949 before being renamed “Grand National” in 1950. The purpose behind it was to show the sport’s intent to make the sport more professional rather than just a few drivers racing on dirt in Daytona Beach, FL a few times per year.

From 1971-2003, the NASCAR Chapionship series was named “The Winston Cup” sponsored by the cigarette brand of the same name. For a bit, it held both names, as from 1971-1986, it was called the Winston Cup Grand National Series.

From 2004-2007, it became the Nextel Cup Series after R.J. Reynolds, owner of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company and makers of Winston cigarettes terminated the partnership. After Sprint and Nextel merged, it became the Sprint Cup Series from 2008-2016. From 2017-2019 it became the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

The Cup Series has had its fair share of legendary drivers throughout the years. Petty, Earnhardt and Jimmie Johnson each hold seven Drivers Championships, with Johnson earning five in a row from 2006-2010.
