2 Comments

Even though the top three points leaders all had rough days in Sunday’s Food City 500 In Support Of Steve Byrnes, they left Bristol Motor Speedway in the same position in the standings that they came there in.

Of note:

* Harvick, Logano and Truex were the last drivers to have finished with top 10 finishes in each of the first seven races, but each was unable to extend that streak.

* Runner-up Jimmie Johnson moved up two spots in the standings to fourth.

* Jeff Gordon and Danica Patrick climbed four spots each.

* David Ragan fell from 10th to 18th position.
