What: The 2023 NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race
Who: The top four racers favored to win the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race and Championship
When: The 2023 NASCAR Cup Series Championship will be held on Sunday, November 5th
Where: Phoenix Raceway in Avondale, Arizona
Heading into the final lap as it would be of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season, four racers have distanced themselves from the field as they vie for a Cup Series Championship. With the final race of the year this weekend in Phoenix, there are four contenders that can potentially win a NASCAR Cup Series title. The current favorite to win by some outlets is Kyle Larson who is the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series Champion. Moreover, Ryan Blaney is another racer to watch and is coming off a win at Martinsville. Rounding out the quartet are Christopher Bell (who won two weeks ago at Homestead) and William Byron, who has won a sensational six times this year.
For this report, SBS will be going over what each racer brings to the table along with a predicted winner in this final race and who will take home the NASCAR Cup Series title.
The No. 1 Contender: Kyle Larson (+150)
With four victories this year, Larson has put together another fantastic NASCAR Cup Series season and is looking for more championship gold. He has been especially dynamic in the Cup Series Playoffs with two victories but also has missed big with two plus-30 finishes. Regardless, he has pulled together four top-five finishes and another top-ten outing in his last nine outings, so he is a consistent threat to win big.

The No. 2 Driver: Ryan Blaney (+215)
Recognized as the top contender in the NASCAR Cup Series standings, Blaney has three wins on the year, including two also in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. He is on a solid hot streak as of late with back-to-back top-three finishes including a win last weekend at Martinsville. Additionally, he has had success at Phoenix this year, notching a second-place finish near the beginning of the season.

The No. 3 Driver: William Byron (+250)
Another sensational racer, Byron has had the most success this year of any contender on this list in terms of accruing first-place finishes. With an astounding six victories on the year, he has been the man to beat most of this NASCAR Cup Series season. His consistently strong performances have continued in the Playoffs with seven top-ten finishes, including five top-five outings. Byron has set himself up for success if he can replicate his winning ways, just one more time.

Final Contending racer: Christopher Bell (+300)
The last racer spotlight, Bell is perhaps the dark horse in this race but has been a consistently strong threat to win each time he has taken the track. With two wins this year, he has cranked it up these past three races with one victory, a second-place finish, and another top-ten outing (seventh place). Indeed if Bell can hang around the top of the leaderboard throughout the race this weekend in Phoenix, he certainly has what it takes to bring home a championship.

Prediction: An All-Star affair, take Larson to win here given his championship pedigree and he is due for another victory or top finish.
