NASCAR Cup Series Playoff picture starting to take shape

By Bo Wilson Sports Editor

The NASCAR Cup Series Playoff picture is becoming a little bit clearer as drivers head to Dover this weekend.

Seven drivers have posted wins through the first 10 races, with Hendrick Motorsports driver William Byron taking three wins. Hendrick Motorsports has led the field with five wins this season. Kyle Larson and Dawsonville, Georgia's Chase Elliott have one win each.


Those wins have qualified them for the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.

It also leaves nine playoff spots up for grabs. Denny Hamlin (two wins), Tyler Reddick (one win), Christopher Bell (one win), and Daniel Suarez (one win) have all qualified for the playoffs. 

At the other end of the Playoff outlook sits two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Joey Logano, currently 16th in the standings, tied in points with RFK Racing’s Chris Buescher in 17th – the first position outside the postseason cutoff. Just behind Buescher in the 18th spot is two-time Cup Series champion Kyle Busch, who is 11 points back from Logano and Buescher.

Currently, eight full-time Cup Series drivers who won last season are looking for their first win of 2024: Chris Buescher, Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Ryan Blaney, Ross Chastain, Joey Logano, Michael McDowell, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

The Cup Series heads to Dover Motor Speedway for the Würth 400 on Sunday, April 28, at 2 p.m. ET on FS1, PRN, WDUN AM 550 & FM 102.9.
