5 Drivers To Fight For Final Championship 4 Berth At PhoenixThe Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads to Phoenix Raceway for its penultimate race of the season and the Playoffs Round of 8 cutoff event – Sunday’s Can-Am 500 (2:30 p.m. ET on NBC, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

Three of the four berths in the Championship 4 race (Sunday, Nov. 19 at Homestead Miami Speedway, 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) have been claimed. Kyle Busch captured the first with his win at Martinsville, Kevin Harvick took the second with his Texas victory and Martin Truex Jr. clinched the third via points following Texas.
Brad Keselowski, Denny Hamlin, Ryan Blaney, Chase Elliott and Jimmie Johnson will duke it out on Sunday for the final spot in the Championship 4.

Keselowski sits 19 points above on the cutoff line for the final Championship 4 position. Hamlin is followed by Blaney (22 points behind Keselowski), Chase Elliott (-49) and Jimmie Johnson (-51). A victory at Phoenix by any of the winless Playoff-eligible drivers guarantees him a bid to the Championship 4 race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The five drivers have the following clinch scenarios:
Keselowski – If Keselowski wins, he will clinch. If Kyle Busch/Truex/Harvick or a non-playoff driver wins, he would guarantee a clinch on points with 37 Points.
Hamlin – If Hamlin wins, he will clinch.  Could clinch on points with a Kyle Busch/Truex/Harvick or a non-playoff driver win and help.
Blaney – If Blaney wins, he will clinch.  Could clinch on points with a Kyle Busch/Truex/Harvick or a non-playoff driver win and help.
Elliott – If Elliott wins, he will clinch.  Could clinch on points with a Kyle Busch/Truex/Harvick or a non-playoff driver win and help.
Johnson – If Johnson wins, he will clinch.  Could clinch on points with a Kyle Busch/Truex/Harvick or a non-playoff driver win and help.
