On Sunday, September 4 at Darlington Raceway, the Cook Out Southern 500 will be directed as the primary race in the 10-race season finisher for the NASCAR Cup Series.
The No. 45 Toyota, which will be driven by Bubba Wallace for the last 10 races,
will replace Team Penske's No. 12 and Ryan Blaney in the 16-vehicle setup for the proprietor's title season finisher.
Kurt Busch, the No. 45's full-time driver, surrendered his entitlement to partake in the end of the season games in the wake of experiencing a blackout recently at Pocono Raceway.
At Darlington, an inquisitively planned 1.367-mile circuit that played host to the game's initial 500-mile race in 1950, the drivers had a troublesome postseason start.
One of NASCAR's chief races, the Southern 500 is a certifiable trial of a driver's ability and tire the executives on this egg-molded course.
