Meet the final four drivers vying for NASCAR's Cup Series championship

By the time the sun sets over Phoenix on Sunday, we will have a new NASCAR Cup Series champion, the last man standing after nine months, a 26-race regular season, a nine-race playoff and, finally, a 312-lap throwdown on the rugged 1-mile flat semi-roval that is the Phoenix Raceway.

Here they are. The 2021 NASCAR "Four Horsemen of the Car-pocalypse."

For those of you unfamiliar with NASCAR's title format, in stark contrast to the points system that gets us to this final event, what these four drivers need to do to win it all is shockingly simple.
