Winners and losers at Phoenix Raceway

A two-tire pit stop during a late caution pays off, giving William Byron his second consecutive win of the 2023 NASCAR Cup season at the United Rentals Work United 500.

A look at winners and losers in Sunday’s Cup Series race at Phoenix Raceway:


Hendrick Motorsports -- William Byron won the race, leading 64 laps. Kyle Larson was second, leading 201. Alex Bowman was ninth, and Josh Berry, running well as the replacement for injured Chase Elliott, was 10th, giving the Hendrick team four spots in the top 10.

Tyler Reddick -- After a tough start to the season, Reddick fought forward over the final miles and had a shot to win in overtime. He finished third.

Kevin Harvick -- Harvick, who practically owns Phoenix Raceway with nine career wins there, led 35 laps and was on the road to victory until cautions impacted the finish.


Harrison Burton -- Burton finished next-to-last after his late-race crash caused a caution and jumbled the finish. He has had a rough start with finishes of 26th, 15th, 26th and 35th.

Aric Almirola -- A wheel escaped from Almirola’s Ford, leading to a two-lap penalty and a 33rd-place finish. The other three Stewart-Haas drivers all finished in the top 12.

Austin Cindric -- Cindric had a tough afternoon, bouncing around in the second group after a pit-road speeding penalty and finishing a lap down in 25th.
