William Byron extended his lead in the points with his fifth victory of the season, but a change took place among those racing for a Chase spot.
Eight drivers will compete for the championship when the playoffs begin Sept. 24 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Byron and Matt Crafton have already clinched spots with multiple wins. Other drivers with victories this season are Johnny Sauter, Christopher Bell and John Hunter Nemechek. That, for now, leaves three playoff spots.
The top three drivers in points without a win after Saturday’s Pocono race are Daniel Hemric, Timothy Peters and Cameron Hayley, who climbed two spots to move into the final transfer spot. Hayley is tied with Ben Kennedy but has the advantage because his best finish this year is a runner-up result and Kennedy’s best finish this year is a fourth-place finish.
