Ryan Blaney captures his first NASCAR Cup Series title; Ross Chastain wins at Phoenix Raceway in the Championship Race on Sunday.
AVONDALE, Ariz. – For the first time in ten years of the elimination Playoff format, the NASCAR Cup Series champion failed to win the title race—not that it mattered one bit to 2023 champion Ryan Blaney.
Kyle Larson has a sensational season with a NASCAR Cup Series championship on Sunday afternoon at Phoenix Raceway.
One last race for four drivers to fight over one championship. It all takes place at Phoenix Raceway. 312 laps on a track that races just like a short track but can be way meaner. Drivers often have issues dealing with the high temperatures. Whether it is the slick racing surface, the resin to add grip, or brake issues, Phoenix Raceway always gives drivers problems.
