One of the most unique seasons in NASCAR history concludes on Sunday with the running of the 2020 Season Finale 500.

The Season Finale 500 will wrap up NASCAR's crazy 2020 and crown its Cup Series champion on Sunday, Nov. 8. For the first time, the final race will be held at one-mile Phoenix Raceway out in the desert, a flat track that's had a $178 million makeover in recent years.
