About Monster Energy NASCAR CupThe Monster Energy NASCAR Cup is a stock car racing series organized by NASCAR. It is promoted as NASCAR's "minor league" circuit, and is considered a proving ground for drivers who wish to step up to the organization's top level circuit, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Xfinity Series events are frequently held as a support race on the day prior to a Cup Series event scheduled for that weekend. The series was previously called the Budweiser Late Model Sportsman Series in 1982 and 1983, the NASCAR Busch Grand National Series from 1984 through 2003, the NASCAR Busch Series from 2004 through 2007, and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup from 2008 through 2014. It is currently sponsored by Comcast via its consumer cable brand Xfinity.
In 2016, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and the Camping World Truck Series adopted a playoff format similar to the NASCAR Cup Series Chase for the Championship. Unlike the NASCAR Cup Series, whose Chase consists of four rounds, the Xfinity Series and Truck Series both use a three-round format. After each of the first two rounds, the four Chase grid drivers with the fewest season points are eliminated from the grid and Chase contention. The best-placed driver overall from the four Dash 4 Cash races advances to the Chase.
Round of 12 (races 27–29)
Begins with 12 drivers who qualify for the Chase grid with 2,000 points
Round of 8 (races 30–32)
Begins with 8 drivers, each with 3,000 points
Championship 4 (final race)
The last four drivers in contention for the season title will have their points reset to 4,000 points, with the highest finisher in the race winning the Xfinity Series title.
Since the early days of the Xfinity Series, many NASCAR Cup Series drivers have used their days off to drive in the Xfinity Series. This can be for any number of reasons, most prominent or often claimed is to gain more "seat time", or to familiarize themselves with the track. Examples of this would be Dale Earnhardt, who won the very first Xfinity Series race, and Kyle Busch, who has won the most races in Xfinity Series history.
In recent years, this practice had been dubbed "Buschwhacking" by its detractors. The colloquialism originated when Anheuser-Busch was the main sponsor of the series by combining the name "Busch" with the term "bushwhacker," but it has gradually fallen out of use since Anheuser-Busch's sponsorship ended. When Nationwide became the series sponsor, the insurance-related phrase "claim jumper" was sometimes used to describe the practice.
