Sprint Cup points after Talladega race


NASCAR finalized its Round of 8 lineup Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway, where Joey Logano won to clinch a berth in the penultimate round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Also advancing were Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Kurt Busch.

Those six drivers joined Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick, who already had advanced via victories in the past two races.

Austin Dillon, Martin Truex Jr., Chase Elliott and Brad Keselowski were eliminated at Talladega.

Dillon and Hamlin finished tied for the eighth and final spot in the standings, but Hamlin won the tiebreaker by virtue of best finish in the round — his third Sunday at Talladega.
