Harrison Burton continues to dominate the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings, holding a 183-point lead over Riley Herbst.

Burton is the only rookie who is locked into the Playoffs by virtue of a win – he has two on the season (Auto Club, Miami). Herbst is in 10th-place on the Playoff outlook, 81 points ahead of the cutoff.

In addition to his two wins, Burton has put together a plethora of points on the strength of nine top-five and 13 top-10 finishes in the 19 races this season. He had a string of three races in which he finished 25th or worse (Talladega and Pocono saw his day end with crashes, and he finished 25th on the Indianapolis Road Course), but otherwise he has finished 17th or better in all other races.

Herbst has had a pair of top fives (runner-up finishes at Auto Club, Kentucky-1) and 10 top-10 results.

Jesse Little is in third in the Sunoco Rookie standings and is looking for his first top five of the season. (He did finish 10th at Pocono for his first career top 10).
