How do the NASCAR Playoffs work? We've got all the info you need to know.
For all three NASCAR national series, there are a series of eliminations as NASCAR Playoffs progress. This culminates in the series finales at Phoenix Raceway, where the Championship 4 drivers race "straight-up" for the title - the first to cross the line of the four championship-eligible drivers is crowned the champion. This year's championship weekend is schedule to be in Phoenix for the first time. Previously, Homestead-Miami Speedway had been the track to host the final race weekend since 2002.
Darlington Raceway kicks off the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs as 16 drivers have secured a spot. Following, there are scheduled cutoff races, where four drivers are eliminated from the playoffs: Bristol Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval and Martinsville Speedway.
We are proud to be called the Official Throwback Weekend of NASCAR - and one of our favorite parts of Throwback Weekend is having NASCAR Hall of Famers and Legends visit us and attend our races over Labor Day weekend. Though they won't be at the track with us this weekend, we are still hanging out with them - virtually. Check out which drivers and NASCAR Hall of Famer's are taking over our social channels this week!
