NASCAR sets 2018 stage lengths

By

NASCAR has announced the stage lengths for all Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races this season, with the exception of September’s inaugural race on the Charlotte road course.

The lengths will be familiar to what fans saw last year, starting with a 60-120-200 split in the Daytona 500. The Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway will again also be the only four-stage race, as it is the longest event on the schedule.

This year is the second season for NASCAR’s stage racing format. Reigning champion Martin Truex Jr. showed the competition how to get it done a year ago by winning 19 stages throughout the course of the season.

Stage lengths for 2018 are as follows:
