With just one week remaining in the regular season, this year’s list of Sprint Cup Series race winners shows eleven drivers – two fewer than in 2014 – heading into Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway.
Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson are tied for the series lead in wins with four apiece. Joey Logano and Matt Kenseth are right behind at three each. With a maximum of twelve race winners now possible, the remaining spots in the sixteen-driver post-season field will be filled based on regular-season point standings.
The five highest-placed non-winning drivers in the standings today are Jamie McMurray, Ryan Newman, Jeff Gordon, Paul Menard and Clint Bowyer – who leads Aric Almirola by twenty-nine points for what would be the final spot on The Chase Grid with Kasey Kahne just two points further back.
