NASCAR 2023 Texas schedule, entry list, and how to watch

Four drivers have been eliminated, and the 2023 NASCAR Cup playoffs continue with the Round of 12 at Texas Motor Speedway.

12 drivers remain in the fight for the NASCAR Cup Series championship in 2023.

Regular season champion Martin Truex Jr. narrowly avoided a shock exit in the first round, and Bubba Wallace clawed back 19 points to avoid elimination as well.

Joey Logano and Kevin Harvick, who both entered Bristol above the cut-line, were ultimately eliminated. The former Cup champions were joined by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Michael McDowell as the unfortunate four who will go no further.

Tyler Reddick is the defending winner at Texas, taking victory last year while still driving for Richard Childress Racing.

This week, NASCAR announced the return of the L.A. Clash exhibition race, which will be preceded by a NASCAR Mexico Series race on the temporary track.

Layne Riggs will make his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Texas, driving for Kaulig Racing. In the Truck Series, Rackley W.A.R. announced that they plan to immediately replace Matt DiBenedetto with a yet to be named driver in the No. 25 Chevrolet Silverado.
