Martin Truex Jr. moved into sole possession of third place in the playoff points standings with a race win and stage win Sunday at Pocono Raceway.
With the six-point gain, the defending series champion has 13 playoff points, which rank second behind Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick (who are tied with 25).
Busch, who finished third, remained the regular-season points leader (624), followed by Harvick (537), Joey Logano (534), Truex (487) and Brad Keselowski (474).
The battle for the final transfer position into the playoffs remained tight as Ricky Stenhouse Jr. clung to the bubble spot, nine points ahead of Alex Bowman.
