The Cup Series is nearing its dramatic crescendo. And with just two races left until the championship in Phoenix, the pressure is ramping up.
Kyle Larson etched his name into the lights with a stunning display at Las Vegas last week, outpacing Christopher Bell to secure the first spot in the Championship 4. A former champion, Larson has as good a chance as anyone to hoist the gleaming gemstone that is that Cup Series title.
But he’s not alone. Whether it’s wily veterans (Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr.), gifted youngsters (William Byron, Tyler Reddick) or skilled in-betweeners (Christopher Bell, Chris Buescher, Ryan Blaney), the Round of 8 features a host of talents that could wreak havoc on NASCAR’s biggest stage.
So, when the Cup Series traverses to the Homestead for Sunday’s 4EVER 400, don’t be surprised to see some fireworks. It’s certainly the time of the year for them.
With that, here’s what you need to know about the second of the Round of 8, the 4EVER 400.
