Sunday afternoon’s Bank of America Roval 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway is the Round of 12 elimination race, where four more drivers will be eliminated from the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.
Three contenders below the cut line, Christopher Bell (-28), William Byron (-44), and Alex Bowman (-52), are in a must-win situation. Meanwhile, Kevin Harvick could sneak in on points, being just four behind Kyle Busch and Chase Elliott for the final transfer spot. But he will have to do it without his suspended crew chief, Rodney Childers.
Roval 400 at Charlotte - What to watch for
In Saturday’s Xfinity Series Drive for the Cure 250, Josh Bilicki slammed into the curb, destroying it as well as his car. As a result, NASCAR will remove six sets of yellow and black rumble strips from the track layout for the Cup Series race.
Chase Elliott will be looking for his third-straight victory at the Roval 400 at Charlotte. His worst finish of P6 came in the inaugural event in 2018.
Bubba Wallace will be out to show his win last week was no fluke.
AJ Allmendinger hopes to sweep the weekend at the Roval, having won the Xfinity Series race on Saturday.
