NASCAR announced Monday via Twitter, the name that will adorn NASCAR’s Premier Series.
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will be the brand new name to represent NASCAR’s Premier Series beginning in 2017 and beyond.
Rumors began to swirl earlier in the month that NASCAR might have been planning to ditch the “Cup” name from its Premier Series.
In addition to the brand new NASCAR Premier Series name, the NASCAR logo gets a brand new look for 2017. This is the first time in 40 years that the logo has been changed.
