NASCAR: Full playoff championship standings after Kyle Busch win at Gateway


William Byron maintains his lead in the playoff standings after today’s race at World Wide Technology Raceway, but he’s no longer the only driver with three wins this season. Kyle Busch took his third race victory today at Gateway, leading 121 of 243 laps and claiming pole position. Driver Richard Childress Racing is now in second place after today’s event.

Byron has been brilliant all season, but especially in the last two months. Today was the seventh straight top ten finish for the Hendrick Motorsports driver as he continues his best season of his career. Kyle Larson finished 4th in the race today and remains third in the standings with his pair of wins. Ryan Blaney is fourth ahead of Martin Truex Jr, as both drivers finished 6th and 5th in the race today.

Ty Gibbs may be Joe Gibbs Racing’s future, but their other three drivers are all in contention for the title this year, sitting fifth, sixth and seventh in the standings with one win apiece. Both 23XI Racing drivers are also currently in the playoffs, with Tyler Reddick already with a win and a solid run from Bubba Wallace over the past four weeks now putting him in 15th place.

Kevin Harvick regains 11th position, which is the first driver without a win this season. The Stewart Haas Racing driver would love nothing more than to secure his place with a race win in his final season, but he raced well and picked up valuable points every weekend. Both RFK Racing drivers are currently in the playoffs, as are the two Trackhouse Racing drivers.
