The NASCAR Cup Series championship on Sunday (Nov. 7) at Phoenix Raceway came down to a final round of pit stops, and Kyle Larson’s crew turned in lightning-fast service to springboard him to the lead, as well as the eventual race win and championship.
With 10 wins on the season and overall dominance from the No. 5 team, are Larson and Hendrick Motorsports ready to make their 2021 performance a springboard for years to come? And is Sunday’s race a positive harbinger for edge-of-your-seat title finales at Phoenix going forward?
Bryan Nolen and Adam Cheek discuss all of this drama and more in the final post-race Stock Car Scoop of the season.
