Kyle Larson wins Stage 1 of Can-Am 500 at Phoenix Raceway

So the championship four is finally set now - Keselowski joins Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, and Kevin Harvick - and now we have to wait just one more week to have our next NASCAR Cup Series champion.

Brad Keselowski now holds the fourth spot heading into the race.

Kenseth won the Cup Series' Can-Am 500 at Phoenix Raceway on Sunday, and while congratulating the 45-year-old driver - who wants to race next season but doesn't have anything lined up - Andretti said he'd give Kenseth a job in NASCAR if he had a team.

After pole-sitter Ryan Blaney and Elliott led laps early, Hamlin took the lead on Lap 26 but lost that lead to Larson on Lap 68.

After the red flag to extinguish the fire, Elliott started marching to the front and had his run-in with Hamlin. Scalding hot brake rotors from Chris Buescher's auto flew in between the SAFER barriers on the outside wall as Buescher had a mechanical failure that caused an accident.

But Kenseth's auto came to life within the final 15 laps.

Keselowski is running in 14th and must pass Hamlin on the track to get the final spot in the championship race.

Hamlin easily won Stage 2 and has pulled even with Brad Keselowski in points entering the final stage.

Chase Elliott: This is Elliott's seventh second-place finish without a win, and while he said after the race he hopes to eventually correct that closing issue, this loss will sting more than others with a championship berth on the line.

The Manchester High School graduate finished second to Kyle Larson in the opening stage, earning nine bonus points.

Stage 2 will end on Lap 150.

Needing a win to advance to the Championship Four at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 19, Hamlin took his auto to the garage.
