The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season is nearing its end. Based on the results of last week’s race, it appears to be going out with a flourish.
The Xfinity 500 at Martinsville was the event of the NASCAR season. Christopher Bell secured his place in the Championship 4 with his second walk-off win of the playoffs, and the action didn’t stop once he crossed the finish line. Ross Chastain ran the fastest — and most memorable — lap in Martinsville history, catapulting himself off the outside wall to pass Denny Hamlin and snag a final-four berth.

It was a “video game” move, one that has garnered more than 100 million views on various social media sites. And it set the stage for what should be an enthralling season finale filled with intrigue.
Bell and Chastain are first-time finalists. Chase Elliott and Joey Logano, the other two drivers in the final four, are past champions. But, as this year’s playoffs have proved, anything can happen.
