NASCAR: Break is over: NASCAR shows Formula 1

NASCAR is leading Formula 1

NASCAR has ended the corona break. Almost two months before Formula 1 starts its 2020 season. Kevin Harvick wins.

WDo you still eat when the last internationally important race took place? It was the Mexico Rally on March 14, 2020, but was stopped early on the last few meters. NASCAR ended the motorsport-free period last weekend, more than two months after the last NASCAR run on March 8.

Now the racing scene is looking towards America more than ever. Because NASCAR has shown what the GP races from July 5, 2020 will look like: completely empty grandstands, ghostly mood, drivers and team members outside the vehicles with mouth guards.

In order to make the event as short as possible, NASCAR does not do any free training, not even qualifying. The starting grid is drawn or is created in the reverse order of the standings. At least that will be different in Formula 1. In the premier class, no changes to the GP format are planned for resumption after the corona break.

The winner of the NASCAR race in Darlington was Kevin Harvick (Stewart / Haas-Ford). It was the 50th success of his career. The 44-year-old also leads the table after five races.

“It’s funny when you can’t hear cheering fans,” admits Harvick. “But still the victory is wonderful.”

The next race in Darlington will continue on Wednesday. After that, the IndyCar also starts the season: on June 6 in Texas. The season opener of the Touring Car World Cup in Slovakia is also planned for that weekend. However, there is still no official statement from the WTCR.
