2023 NASCAR Cup Martinsville II schedule, entry list, and how to watch

Martinsville Speedway hosts the penultimate race of the 2023 NASCAR Cup season with two spots still up for grabs in the Championship 4.

Christopher Bell claimed victory at Homestead, joining Kyle Larson as the only drivers locked into the final four. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver passed William Byron and then held off fellow playoff drivers Ryan Blaney and Tyler Reddick.

Entering Martinsville, Byron is 30pts up while Blaney is 10pts abovehead of the cut-line. Within the elimination zone are Reddick (-10pts), Martin Truex Jr. (-17pts), Denny Hamlin (-17pts), and Chris Buescher (-43pts).

Last year, Bell won his way into the Championship 4 when he captured the checkered flag at Martinsville. Meanwhile, Ross Chastain had shocked the world after riding the wall full-throttle to escape elimination. He went on to end the year as the championship runner-up.

This week in the news, 2023 ARCA Menards Series champion Jesse Love announced that he will move up to the NASCAR Xfinity Series with Richard Childress Racing next year.
