Logano’s victory in the Geico 500 not only moved him closer to the points lead but earned a spot in the 2018 playoffs.
That leaves fifth-place Kurt Busch as the driver highest in the points without a win this year. Busch finished second in the Geico 500.
Austin Dillon was involved in the Lap 166 crash that collected 14 cars. He retired in 35th. Earning only two points at Talladega, Dillon fell to 17th in the standings.
That moves the playoff bubble to the 15th spot, which is occupied by Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
