Why is there no NASCAR Cup Series race this week?

The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season was definitely different for a number of reasons. First and foremost, motorsport fans are rarely treated at this level. In the opening 16-point races of the season, 12 different drivers have taken at least one checkered flag, the youngest being Daniel Suarez, the first Mexican-born winner in Cup Series history. However, a dozen winners in 16 races is still one of the all-time records. In 2003 there were 13 different winners in 16 races.

And of those 12, only four — Ross Chastain, Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson, and Joey Logano — have more than four top-five finishes.
