Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs Round Of 8 Continues 11/12 on NBC

NBC Sports Group surrounds the penultimate races of the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and XFINITY Series Playoffs, with more than 15 hours of trackside coverage from Phoenix International Raceway, in Avondale, Arizona. Race coverage from "The Grand Canyon State" begins Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBC, with XFINITY Series racing, and is highlighted by Sunday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

In a gripping, down to the wire finish last Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway, Kevin Harvick and the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford won the race and secured a position in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Championship. Martin Truex Jr. and the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota finished in second place, and clinched a spot in the Cup Series Championship, based on points. With their respective first and second place finishes this past Sunday, Harvick and Truex Jr. joined Kyle Busch as the first three drivers to make the 2017 Cup Series Championship Four.

With 4111 points, Brad Keselowski currently holds the fourth and final position above the cut line in the Championship Four, but will have to battle Denny Hamlin (4092), Ryan Blaney (4089), Chase Elliott (4062) and Jimmie Johnson (4060) on Sunday to determine who ultimately secures the final spot in the 2017 NASCAR Cup Series Championship.

In addition to live television coverage, NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app - NBC Sports Group's live streaming product for desktops, mobile devices, tablets, and connected TVs - will provide comprehensive streaming coverage of this weekend's NASCAR action.
