The Cup Series is ready to waive the green flag for their playoffs and race for the 2023 championship. It all starts at one of the best tracks on the circuit. Darlington Raceway wears out tires quickly and it requires the drivers to search the track for grip. The Southern 500 is always one of the best races of the season. It should be no different Sunday night.
The Cup Series teams had 20-minutes to shake down their cars for Sunday night’s race. It is important for the teams to see what kind of long-run speed their cars have, so most of the drivers made some long runs in practice. It will be important to look at which teams were able to maintain their speed and post a fast time on the 10-lap average speed chart. These are the drivers we want in our lineups at Darlington.
Here is my starting lineup for the Southern 500…
Good Luck Sunday night!
