Phoenix Raceway is set to host the first of its two races on the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series schedule this Sunday afternoon, that being the fourth of 36 races on the calendar.

Sunday's race, the Shriners Children's 500, is set to be a 312-lap race around the four-turn, uniquely shaped, 1.058-mile (1.703-kilometer) Avondale, Arizona oval, which is the shortest track the Cup Series has visited so far this season following trips to Daytona International Speedway, Atlanta Motor Speedway, and Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Qualifying is set to feature two groups, just as it does in typical non-superspeedway races, and the five fastest drivers in each group advance to the 10-driver shootout for the pole position.

The drivers in each group were determined by the results of the most recent race at Las Vegas, and the qualifying order was determined by a formula (full explanation here).

The drivers outside of the top five in the first group are set to line up on the outside row, and the drivers outside of the top five in the second group are set to line up on the inside row, a slight change from last year's format.
