The Playoff Drawings are a series of drawings that mirror the elimination rounds of the NASCAR Playoffs. The Playoff Drawings will determine the four (4) finalists who will win a VIP trip for two to NASCAR Championship Weekend at Phoenix Raceway, Nov. 8 -11, 2024, and entry into the $1 million drawing. The $1 million drawing will be broadcast live on NBC prior to the start of the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race™ on Nov. 10, 2024.

Playoff Drawings:

  1. National Pool of Entrants to Round of 16
  2. Round of 16 to 12
  3. Round of 12 to 8
  4. Round of 8 to Championship 4
  5. Championship 4 to $1 Million Winner



The Trip Prize consists of a four-day, three-night VIP trip for the entry selected from a pool of Participating Lotteries’ entrants ( each a Finalist or collectively “Finalists”) and one (1) guest to Phoenix, AZ (“PHX”), from approximately Friday, November 8, 2023 to Monday, November 11, 2024, to participate in a drawing for a prize in the amount of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) (“$1 Million Prize”) to be conducted Sunday, November 10, 2024, during the live television broadcast of the NASCAR Cup Series Championship™ Race on NBC (“Program”) from Phoenix Raceway in Avondale, AZ. The Trip Prize approximate value is $20,000 and shall include the following elements:

  • Round-trip, coach-class airline transportation for two (2) people from the major airport nearest Finalist’s city to PHX (if within 250 miles of PHX, rail or ground transportation to be substituted);
  • Three (3) nights hotel accommodations (selected by Prize Provider in its sole discretion) in PHX (double occupancy, room and tax only);
  • Two (2) Ally Curve Hospitality Club passes (includes food, beverages and FanShield Infield Experience access) at Phoenix Raceway for admission to:

– NASCAR Xfinity Series Championship™ Race at 4:00pm on Saturday, November 9, 2024

– NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race™ at 1:00pm on Sunday, November 10, 2024


  • Two (2) passes for VIP Experiences at Phoenix Raceway during NASCAR Championship Weekend™ for Saturday, November 9 and Sunday, November 10, 2024 including:

– NASCAR Cup Series™ VIP access

– NASCAR team hauler tour

– MRN Radio booth tour

– Victory Lane access


  • Two (2) Official NASCAR Championship Weekend™ Event Programs;
  • Two (2) Racing Electronics Scanner Rentals for use while at Phoenix Raceway;
  • Two (2) Souvenir Gift Bags, each with a retail value of at least two hundred fifty dollars ($250);
  • All meals while in PHX, including a Welcome Dinner on Friday, November 8, 2024; and
  • Ground transportation to and from airports, hotel, and activities in PHX.

Finalists are not required to travel to PHX to participate in the drawing for, and remain eligible to win, the $1 Million Prize. Finalists may appoint a proxy to take the trip instead, subject to the Trip Prize Terms and Conditions, and will still remain eligible to win the $1 Million Prize.

  • Finalist (or their proxy) may also have the opportunity to participate in the recording and production of the Program and/or appear in the broadcast of the Program, provided that Finalist completes and signs all required releases and forms and consents to a background check. If Finalist appoints a proxy, the proxy must complete and sign all required releases and clear the background check in order to take the trip. In the event that Finalist’s designated proxy does not clear the background check, Prize Provider reserves the right, in its sole discretion, either to (i) allow Finalist to appoint another proxy to take the trip (subject to background clearance and Prize Provider deadlines); or (ii) allow proxy to travel and to appoint a second proxy (selected by Prize Provider) to participate in the Program.


  • For the avoidance of doubt, Finalist’s eligibility to participate in the trip and/or the drawing for the $1 Million Prize is not affected by Winner’s failure to complete and sign all required release and forms and/or to consent to a background check and/or by any information obtained pursuant to a background check, but those failures may affect the nature of his/her appearance and/or degree of participation in the Program. While Finalist’s eligibility to participate in the drawing for the $1 Million Prize is an element of the Trip Prize, the opportunity to participate in the recording and production of the Program and/or appear in the broadcast of the Program is expressly NOT an element of the Trip Prize and is determined by Prize Provider in its sole discretion. Prize Provider reserves the right to appoint a proxy to appear and participate in the Program for Finalist for any reason as it may determine in its sole discretion. The appointment of any proxy shall not affect Finalist’s eligibility for the $1 Million Prize.

Finalists are subject to the full amount of any taxes due on the total value of the Trip Prize. The appropriate Participating Lotteries will determine, and collect taxes due on the Trip Prize, and other tiers of cash prizing, as well as the $1 Million Prize.

MUSL does not withhold or remit income taxes on behalf of prize winners, all prizes are awarded by lotteries, just like Powerball prizes. MUSL will wire prize money to appropriate lotteries after the public announcement of each Playoff Drawing. Trip winners will incur a tax liability based on the value of the trip.

Lotteries may consider increasing the awarded cash prizes (excluding the Grand Prize) to offset winner’s tax liabilities
