2024 NASCAR Bristol schedule, entry list, and how to watch

At Phoenix, Toyota drivers absolutely dominated, leading all but 14 laps with Christopher Bell ultimately taking the checkered flag.

Chris Buescher was second and Ty Gibbs third in the final running order. Fresh off his third consecutive top-five finish, Ryan Blaney now leads the regular season championship standings.

Bell is also the defending winner of the spring race at Bristol, but that was on the dirt. This will be the first of two visits the Cup Series makes to the Bristol half-mile this year, returning for the cut-off race in the Round of 16 during the NASCAR Cup playoffs.

This week in the news, several NASCAR Cup and Truck Series drivers were part of a tire test at the newly repaved North Wilkesboro Speedway. 

It was also revealed that sports car racing ace and ex-F1 driver Kamui Kobayashi will run the Cup race at COTA next weekend, again driving for 23XI Racing. Another ex-F1 driver, Daniil Kvyat, has entered the NASCAR Xfinity race at COTA.
