Recommended Posts

I have been watching NASCAR since 2006 and I have seen the NEXTEL Cup and the Sprint Cup. I also vaguely remember the Winston Cup but I didn't watch it because of being tied to big tobacco. Personally, I prefer the Sprint Cup because I want to remain the most current when it comes to sports. What is your prefered name for NASCAR's top prize?

How would the Sprint and Nextel cups be different? It's the same company...

Here's the update on that statement:


Prior to 2005, the company was also known as the Sprint Corporation, but took the name Sprint Nextel Corporation when it merged with Nextel Communications that year. In 2013, following the shutdown of the Nextel network and concurrent with the acquisition by SoftBank, the company returned to using simply Sprint Corporation. In July 2013, as part of the SoftBank transactions, Sprint acquired the remaining shares of wireless broadband carrier Clearwire Corporation which it did not already own.
