The NASCAR Cup Series championship came down to a fierce battle with Ryan Blaney earning his first title, but it was Ross Chastain that scored the victory in the season finale at Phoenix Raceway.

Despite not being in the championship hunt, Chastain put the No. 1 Trackhouse Racing Chevrolet out front six times for a race-high 157 laps. The victory was Chastain's second of the 2023 season.

Blaney brought the No. 12 Team Penske Ford home in the second position after a fierce fight with Kyle Larson's No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet and William Byron's No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet, who finished third and fourth, respectively. Chris Buescher brought the No. 17 RFK Racing Ford rounded out the top five.

Christopher Bell suffered a brake rotor failure early in the race and finished 36th, the only car out of the race.
