NASCAR officially announced the return of NASCAR Championship Week to Phoenix Raceway for the 2024 season on Wednesday, which will mark the fifth consecutive season that the facility in Avondale, Arizona has hosted NASCAR Championship Week.
As has been the case since 2020, the NASCAR Cup Series champion, NASCAR Xfinity Series champion, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion, and ARCA Menards Series West champion will all be crowned between November 1st and November 3rd at the 1-mile track.
The renewal of Phoenix Raceway as the host of Championship Weekend is a great honor for the race track.
“This honor is a testament to our fans whose overwhelming support makes this a true championship-caliber venue,” said Phoenix Raceway President Latasha Causey in a press release. “They pack the grandstands, fill the hillside and create the best camping experience in all of NASCAR inside our breathtaking GEICO Gecko Campground. Now the onus is on us to exceed the already high standards we’ve set to continue building on this momentum and keep them coming back.”
The NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race at Phoenix Raceway was completely sold out in 2021, and 2022, and the track states that only a limited number of seats remain for the 2023 NASCAR Championship Weekend.
Prior to Phoenix Raceway taking over as the host venue for NASCAR Championship Weekend in 2020, Homestead-Miami Speedway had served as the season finale since the 2002 season.
Chase Elliott won the NASCAR Cup Series championship in 2020, the first season where Phoenix Raceway served as the host for the Championship Race. Kyle Larson took the title in 2021, and Joey Logano scored his second-career NASCAR Cup Series championship at Phoenix Raceway last season.
