Chase for the Cup
NASCAR has used various point systems since its inception in 1949, but adopted its current structure in 1975.
Just 38 points separate leader Johnson from third-place Harvick, making it the closest margin among the top-three drivers with three races to go since NASCAR began its playoff format for its top-tier series in 2004. Hamlin is 14 points in back of Johnson.
Denny Hamlin moved to within six points of Jimmie Johnson in the championship Chase after winning Sunday’s Tums Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.
