The NASCAR Cup Series wraps up its three-race West Coast swing with a trip to the desert this weekend.
Phoenix Raceway, which will also host the 2023 championship race on November 5, will test drivers on a 1-mile track for the first time this season, following races at the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway, the 2-mile Auto Club Speedway and the 1.5 mile Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The first three races produced three different winners – Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at the Daytona 500, Kyle Busch at Fontana and William Byron last week in Las Vegas – and also allowed three different teams to celebrate: JTG Daugherty Racing, Richard Childress Racing and Hendrick Motorsports, respectively. The one thing all the winners have in common is that they all drive Chevrolets.
