Key information for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Darlington

The track known as “The Lady in Black” will be celebrating Mother’s Day with NASCAR, as the Cup Series hits Darlington Raceway Sunday for the first of two races this season.

Following an incredible race at Kansas Speedway last weekend, which saw Kyle Larson beat Chris Buescher in overtime by the smallest margin of victory in series history, fans should be in for another spectacular race at one of NASCAR’s oldest and most-loved tracks.

In another bit of welcome news, Legacy Motor Club driver Erik Jones will return to the No. 43 Toyota after missing the races at Kansas and Dover to recover from a fractured back he sustained in a crash at Talladega Superspeedway on April 21. And the return couldn’t have happened at a better time for Jones. Two of his three career Cup Series wins have come at Darlington (the fall races in 2019 and 2022), and his five top-five finishes at the South Carolina oval are tied for his most at any track (along with Pocono Raceway).

How will Jones and the rest of the field fare on Sunday? Here’s all the information you need to get ready for the Goodyear 400:
