CONCORD, N.C. - The 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season will come to a close with Sunday's championship race at Phoenix Raceway.
William Byron and Kyle Larson will be competing to try and win the series-best 15th Cup Series championship for Hendrick Motorsports. Class of 2024 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Jimmie Johnson is tied for the most championships in series history with seven (2006-10, 2013 and 2016). Team vice chairman and NASCAR Hall of Famer Jeff Gordon won four titles (1995, 1997-98 and 2001). Terry Labonte (1996), Chase Elliott (2020) and Larson (2021) have each won a championship for team owner Rick Hendrick.

Elliott will carry the colors of NAPA Auto Parts on the No. 9 Chevy. The 27-year-old driver has one win at Phoenix and his 546 laps led are the second-most for him at any track.

Byron's No. 24 Chevrolet will sport the colorful Axalta paint scheme for the title race. This is Byron's first appearance in the Championship 4. Two of his six wins (the May race at Darlington Raceway and the July race at Atlanta Motor Speedway) this season have come with Axalta on the car.
