NASCAR Cup Atlanta

NASCAR 2023 Atlanta schedule, entry list, and how to watch

There is no shortage of headlines as NASCAR heads to Atlanta Motor Speedway for Round 5 of the 2023 Cup season.

Chevrolet has dominated the year so far, winning the first four races on the schedule for the first time since 2001.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.Kyle Busch, and William Byron have all visited Victory Lane with Byron winning back-to-back races at Las Vegas and Phoenix.

Kevin Harvick leads the regular season standings entering Atlanta, but you might be surprised by how. Ross Chastain looked set to leave Phoenix still atop the points, but yet another run-in with Denny Hamlin at the end of the race cost both drivers numerous positions and Chastain the points lead.

Hamlin was later fined $50,000 and docked 25 driver points for admitting on his podcast that "it wasn't a mistake" and that he meant to wall Chastain.

Alex Bowman left the track in control of the points instead, but that was not to last either. On Wednesday, NASCAR released massive penalties against all four Hendrick Motorsports teams for modifying a single-source supplied part. Bowman fell to 23rd in the standings, while the other Hendrick teams and drivers (except Chase Elliott) fell even further. The same penalty was levied against Justin Haley and Kaulig Racing.

HMS has signaled its intention to appeal the penalties, which resulted in the loss of 400 owner points, 300 driver points, 40 playoff bonus points, and a $400,000 fine for the organization. 

But looking ahead to Atlanta, it will be a triple-header weekend with all three national divisions present. Byron won this race last year, beating Chastain to the finish line.
