Harrison Burton is still holding onto the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings, with 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, a solid 159 points ahead of the cutoff.

Of note, when the Playoffs begin, the drivers’ points in the Playoffs will be reset to 2000 points, with their Playoff points then added on. Which will bring the Sunoco Rookie standings much closer together.

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.

Little, Myatt Snider and Kody Vanderwal will all be making their debuts at Richmond while Burton, Herbst and Graf have one previous start to their name.
