NASCAR Cup Daytona II

NASCAR 2023 Daytona II schedule, entry list, and how to watch

One race remains in the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series regular season, which concludes with a 400-mile race around the high banks of Daytona Int. Speedway.

With William Byron taking his series-leading fifth win of the 2023 season at Watkins Glen, 15 drivers have locked themselves into the playoffs. 

The 16th and final spot belongs to Bubba Wallace. While Ty Gibbs and Daniel Suarez still have a potential path in on points alone, it's likely a must-win situation for the 16 full-time drivers behind Wallace in the standings.

Last year, Austin Dillon won his way into the playoffs at Daytona after most of the field was eliminated in a late-race crash when rain hit the track.

Another battle that remains undecided is the regular season championship. Martin Truex Jr. has it, but his Joe Gibbs Racing team-mate Denny Hamlin is 39pts back and still in the hunt.

Rumors are growing surrounding Hamlin's ongoing contract negotiations with JGR, which have been complicated by the 23XI Racing. Hamlin spoke on the situation last weekend at Watkins Glen.

This week, it was announced that Netflix will partner with NASCAR to create a five-part docuseries following the 2023 Cup Series playoffs, set to debut in early 2024.
