The 26th of February, 2017 - The 2017 NASCAR season kicks off with a new set of rules to add some twist to the latest season and a new sponsorship courtesy of Monster Energy.
The 59th Daytona 500, held at the Daytona International
Speedway on that day, signalled the start of a new season and in this Great American Race, which was watched by millions of Americans everywhere, Kurt Busch and his #41 Stewart-Haas Fusion made history after winning the season opener, making it his 29th NASCAR win and his first Daytona 500 win.
Although the new points system and format delivered some mixed reactions from fans everywhere, looks like the Chase for the Monster Cup is just getting started and the race continues at Atlanta Motor Speedway on the 5th of March.
