Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin were the winners in 2020. In the playoffs of the NASCAR Cup Series, the remaining competitors advanced to the Eighth Final and climbed to the other two higher positions.
Harvick and Hamlin only need a good performance on Sunday at the Hollywood Casino 400 in Kansas to almost secure their place in the championship. Brad Keselowski and Chase Elliott are 3rd and 4th in the race, but they have little room ahead of Joey Logan and Martin Truex Jr..
Here is the points credit for Kansas:
|Pos.||Driver||Distance from the boundary|
|6||Martin Truex Jr.||-10|
