Speedway, Indiana
on Sunday, May 26, 1974. Johnny Rutherford , in his eleventh attempt, won the race from the 25th starting position, the farthest back since Louis Meyer
Louis Meyer
in 1936 . The race was run relatively clean, with no major crashes or injuries, a sharp contrast from the tragic 1973 race a year earlier. In order to increase safety, significant improvements were made to the track, and the cars. Wings were reduced in size, and pop-off valves were added to the turbocharger plenums in order to reduce horsepower and curtail speeds. For the first time in Indy history, the race was scheduled for the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. This ended the "never on a Sunday " policy previously held from 1911 to 1973

The MONSTER ENERGY NASCAR
NASCAR
CUP SERIES (often shortened to the CUP SERIES) is the top racing series of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR).

The series began in 1949 as the STRICTLY STOCK SERIES, and from 1950 to 1970 it was known as the GRAND NATIONAL SERIES. In 1971, when the series began leasing its naming rights to the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company , it was referred to as the WINSTON CUP SERIES. A similar deal was made with Nextel in 2003, and it became the NEXTEL CUP SERIES (2004–2007). Sprint acquired Nextel in 2005, and in 2008 the series was renamed the SPRINT CUP SERIES, which lasted until 2016. In December 2016, it was announced that Monster Energy would become the new title sponsor starting in 2017
