Xfinity Series playoff grid after Texas

What was supposed to be Kyle Busch‘s 98th career NASCAR Xfinity Series win is stripped from the Joe Gibbs Racing driver after his car fails post-race inspection and the victory is subsequently awarded to Austin Cindric.

For the third straight race the Xfinity Series saw Austin Cindric claim a victory, this time after Kyle Busch’s car failed post-race inspection Saturday in Texas.

Cindric’s win meant no other driver locked themselves into the 12-driver playoff grid with eight races left in the regular season.

Going into Saturday’s race at Kansas Speedway (5 p.m. ET on NBCSN), the last driver among the top 12 on the playoff grid is Brandon Brown.

The independent driver is 31 points above the cutline after his 10th-place finish in Texas. That’s an increase of 17 points from last week after the Kentucky doubleheader.

The first four drivers outside the top 12 are Jeremy Clements (-31 points from cutline), Myatt Snider (-38), Jesse Little (-51) and Alex Labbe (-63 points).
