Elliott Sadler didn’t lead a lap, but a ninth-place finish in the Heads Up Georgia 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway keeps the JR Motorsports driver at the top of the Xfinity Series point standings.

Just like following Daytona last week, Sadler has a three-point lead over second, but the driver chasing him has changed. As Darrell Wallace Jr. dropped five spots to seventh, Joe Gibbs Racing driver Daniel Suarez advanced two spots to second.

Suarez finished seventh in the Atlanta race.
