Xfinity Series: Chris Buescher maintains lead in tightened points battle


Chris Buescher remained atop the Xfinity Series point standings — but he saw his lead tighten as defending series champion Chase Elliott is now just 31 points back in second place.

Ty Dillon remains in third place (38 points behind Buescher), Regan Smith climbed one spot to fourth place (minus-59 points), while Elliott Sadler dropped from fourth to fifth place (minus-68 points).
