Harrison Burton continues to dominate the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings, holding a 177-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 11th place on the Playoff outlook, 116 points ahead of the cutoff.

In addition to his two wins, Burton has put together a plethora of points on the strength of 10 top-five and 14 top-10 finishes in the 21 races this season. He’s accumulated four top 10s in the last six races, including a third-place finish at Kansas Speedway.

Herbst has two top fives and 12 top 10s in 21 races and has finished in the top 10 in three of the last four races. At Dover, he finished sixth and ninth, receiving the Rookie of the Year Award for the second Dover race on Sunday.

Jesse Little is in third in the Sunoco Rookie standings and is looking for his first top five of the season. His season-best finish came at Pocono in 10th. At Dover, he finished 23rd in both races.
