The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series playoffs officially kick off at Darlington Raceway this Sunday, Sept. 4.
Sixteen drivers will look to start the playoffs by taming the Lady in Black. And with 36 cars entered, everyone will make the race, assuming there are no changes to the entry list.
Only one driver change is on the docket, as JJ Yeley returns to the No. 15 Jacob Companies/Parts Plus Ford for Rick Ware Racing. David Ragan was in the car at Daytona International Speedway last weekend.
The Cup playoffs are set to commence on Sunday, Sept. 4 at 6 p.m. ET on the USA Network.
