NASCAR Cup Watkins Glen

NASCAR 2023 Watkins Glen schedule, entry list, and how to watch

The playoff picture has shifted dramatically after Michael McDowell's big win at the Indianapolis Road Course.

McDowell battled Daniel Suarez and later Chase Elliott, holding on to earn his second career NASCAR Cup Series victory and his first since the 2021 Daytona 500.

Ford has now won three straight Cup races. McDowell's win locked him into the playoffs and moved Bubba Wallace down to the cut-line, who now holds a 28-point buffer to Suarez.

Truex continues to lead the regular season standings, now 60pts clear of his Joe Gibbs Racing team-mate Denny Hamlin.

Kyle Larson is the defending winner at Watkins Glen. With just two races to go in the playoffs, there have been 14 different winners with 13 of them now locked into the playoffs (Shane van Gisbergen not eligible).
