It's known as the "Track Too Tough to Tame," and for the second year in a row Darlington Raceway will serve as the starting line for the 10-race NASCAR Cup playoffs with today's Cook Out Southern 500. A field including Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. will be looking to start off the postseason with a win on the 1.366-mile egg-shaped oval whose uneven turns make for challenging handling.
