Drivers on the Playoff bubble in the NASCAR Xfinity Series get two chances to bounce into the postseason this weekend as the series heads to Dover International Speedway for a Saturday/Sunday double-header.
Austin Cindric racked up his fifth win of the season last weekend on the Daytona International Speedway Road Course, which keeps the number of drivers locked into the Playoffs with a win at six. Seven races remain in the regular season – affording plenty of opportunity for drivers to win their way into the opportunity to race for the title.
Ross Chastain continues to hold onto the seventh spot in the driver Playoff standings as the first driver without a win. Justin Allgaier is right behind Chastain in eighth and Michael Annett is in ninth. Sunoco Rookie Riley Herbst and Ryan Sieg flip-flopped positions after the Daytona Road Course race, with Herbst now sitting in 10th and Sieg in 11th.
Brandon Brown remains the 12th and final driver in the Playoffs on points, but a win by any driver outside of the current Playoff picture would bump him out.
|Rank||Driver||Points||Race Wins||Stage Wins||Pts from Cutoff|
|1||Austin Cindric||830||5||8||In On Wins|
|4||Harrison Burton #||645||2||0|
|14||Myatt Snider #||357||0||0||-52|
Jeremy Clements has been hanging onto the 13th spot right below the cutline and Myatt Snider, another rookie, is in 14th, now just 52 points back from the cutline following a 10th-place effort at Daytona on the Road Course. Alex Labbe overtook Josh Williams for the 15th spot in the Playoff outlook.
Cindric has now tied Noah Gragson with the most stage wins of any driver in the series with eight and his JR Motorsports teammate Justin Allgaier has seven.
