With Kyle Busch win, Chase Elliott highest driver in Cup points without win

It’s been a “frustrating year” for Kyle Busch, but his win at Pocono was particularly meaningful as it’s the first time he’s been to victory lane since his grandmother passed away.

Kyle Busch finally clinched a spot in the Cup Series playoffs by winning Sunday’s race at Pocono Raceway.

That makes 13 drivers who have qualified for the playoffs off wins.

With five races to go in the regular season Martin Truex Jr. leads the standings over Kyle Larson (-85), Kevin Harvick (-97), Busch (-100) and Brad Keselowski (-174).

With Busch’s win, that leaves three spots left for drivers to possibly get into the playoffs on points.

The highest driver in the standings without a win is Chase Elliott, who is seventh and 207 points back from Truex.

He is followed by Jamie McMurray, Matt Kenseth and Clint Bowyer, who are all winless.
