CONCORD, N.C. – The NASCAR playoffs Round of 12 is set to launch at Texas Motor Speedway. Notably, Kyle Larson and William Byron have secured their spots in the driver championship battle. Meanwhile, the Nos. 5, 9, and 24 teams are vying for the owner’s crown.

The renowned Rick Hendrick-owned organization boasts an impressive track record at the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, with 10 points-paying victories. Larson stands as the team’s sole active driver with a points win at the venue, clinching his triumph during his 2021 championship campaign.

Larson will showcase the paint scheme on the No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. In his 15 starts at Texas, he has captured one win, four top-five finishes, and six top-10s. The 31-year-old driver maintains an impressive 5.0 average finish in his two Texas outings with Hendrick Motorsports. Additionally, he has already notched three top-five finishes on 1.5-mile tracks in 2023.

Kelley Blue Book will adorn the No. 9 Chevy for its second and final appearance this season, now featuring Chase Elliott behind the wheel for the first time. Elliott, 27, has 12 Texas starts under his belt, securing two top-five finishes and six top-10s. Notably, both of his top-10 finishes on 1.5-mile tracks this year occurred at Kansas Speedway.

Byron will proudly showcase the Liberty University colors on the No. 24 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. His impressive season includes a victory on a 1.5-mile track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, three top-three finishes, and a noteworthy 5.25 average finish in four such races. At Texas, the 25-year-old driver has one top-five finish and four top-10s.

Alex Bowman’s No. 48 Ally Chevy will sport a distinctive white-based “day” scheme for the 267-lap event. In his 13 starts at the Texas track, he has secured two top-five finishes, both of which were fifth-place results in the playoff races of 2019 and 2020. This season, in three 1.5-mile races (excluding the missed spring Kansas race due to injury), he boasts an average finish of 8.33.”
