A Championship 4 Berth Is ‘The Crown’ For NASCAR Crew Chiefs

There’s little doubt that the teams that make the Round of 8 in the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs are all championship-capable. “I look around at these eight drivers and teams, and they’re all championship worthy.”. While simply being present in the final round isn’t the same as winning a driver’s championship, for Gabehart, it’s almost comparable when considering the winner-take-all format at the season finale at Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway. “It’s one race, it’s one set of circumstances,” Gabehart said. Does that make us less championship worthy than Kyle Larson in that situation? “I think the format’s better than it used to be, but it doesn’t necessarily crown the most deserving team,” Gabehart said. Stevens won two Cup Series championships with Kyle Busch in 2015 and 2019.
