NASCAR 2022 at Talladega – Start time, how to watch, schedule and more

Four races in the playoffs, and one playoff driver has yet to win. Tyler Reddick, who was eliminated in the Round of 16, emerged victorious in a chaotic 500 mile at Texas Motor Speedway where tire failures and intentional contact became the centerpiece of the day.

After the race, these drivers found themselves below the cut line: Chase Briscoe, Austin Cindric, Christopher Bell and Alex Bowman. However, a few days later, the playoff picture would change. NASCAR slammed William Byron with a 25-point penalty after intentionally spinning Denny Hamlin under caution in a retaliatory move.

The penalty brought Briscoe over the cut line while pushing Byron into the elimination zone. Byron was initially third, 17 points clear, but is now 10th, eight points behind.
