Martin Truex Jr. remains the points leader after Sunday’s Pocono 400 but his margin narrowed. He has a one-point lead on Kyle Larson heading into next weekend’s race at Michigan International Speedway. Truex finished sixth Sunday at Pocono. Larson placed seventh.
Ryan Blaney‘s win makes him the ninth driver to qualify for the 16-driver playoffs with a victory this season. Joey Logano has a win but it was an encumbered finish because of a penalty and doesn’t count toward playoff eligibility.
