CONCORD, N.C. -- Hendrick Motorsports will make its way to Phoenix Raceway this weekend for the season finale as Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott prepare to fight for the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series championship.
Larson will attempt to earn his first Cup Series title after a career-best nine-win season in his first year with Hendrick Motorsports. Defending 2020 Cup Series champion Elliott will look to repeat his success and go back-to-back at the 1-mile venue, which would mark the first time a Cup Series driver has won consecutive championships since Jimmie Johnson accomplished the feat from 2005-10.
