Regular Season Standings and Playoff Picture

Chase Elliott remains atop the championship standings after 13 races, but both Kyle Busch and Ross Chastain are closing in.

Joey Logano joined the two-win club with his victory at Gateway.

Denny Hamlin joined Chastain and William Byron as the only drivers with multiple wins this season, taking the checkered flag in a dramatic Coca Cola 600.

Although outside the T16, wins for Hamlin, Austin Cindric, and Kurt Busch currently have them locked into the playoff field. The 'bubble' driver is Tyler Reddick in 12th.
