The NASCAR Championship Weekend at Phoenix Raceway is upon us.

This weekend, the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will host their season finales on the 1-mile tri-oval.

In each series, the Championship 4 drivers will compete against each other in a “winner-take-all” race within the race. The top finisher among them will be crowned champion.

Practice and qualifying sessions will be held for all three series.

Sunday’s Cup Series coverage on NBC, including pre- and post-race shows, will also stream on Peacock Premium. Fans can sign up for $4.99/month at
