The in-season tournament will feature a 32-driver, single-elimination bracket. These head-to-head matchups will unfold over five Cup Series races.

The seeding for the tournament will be based on drivers’ performance in the final three races televised by Amazon Prime Video in 2025. The better a driver’s finish in those races, the higher their seeding.

Drivers will compete fiercely, with the higher-finishing driver advancing to the next round. The stakes are high, and the pressure will be intense. The ultimate reward awaits the winner—a cool $1 million prize.
