NASCAR has multiple different racing series including, The Cup Series, The Xfinity Series, and The Truck Series. Each series features drivers from different locations, ages, and skill levels. In addition, each series has a predetermined number of races and a different point system. Let’s get a deeper understanding by breaking down the difference between the NASCAR series.
