We've arrived at the Championship 4 after Sunday's Round of 8 elimination race. Before the race, 3 out of 4 spots were still up for grabs and it was an intense race. That said, we're almost at the finish line and our four drivers competing for the title include Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott, Martin Truex Jr. and Denny Hamlin. Outside of Kyle Larson, all the drivers made their way to the final round with points.
Larson was this season's regular season champion and had five wins before the postseason. He has nine wins at this point and more than doubles the next closest. This will be his first-time racing for the Cup Championship and is thought by many to be the favorite to win it all. Chase Elliott will be looking to make this his second title in two years. Denny Hamlin is on his fifth attempt at the Cup Championship and Martin Truex Jr won the title in Homestead back in 2017.
