Erik Jones won the Bojangles’ Southern 500 to punch his ticket into the NASCAR Playoffs, while Ryan Blaney, Kyle Larson, William Byron and Aric Almirola joined the Joe Gibbs Racing driver in the postseason via points.
Those five drivers join the nine winners we’ve seen so far this season already in the field – Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Chase Elliott, Kurt Busch and Alex Bowman.
That means two playoff spots in the 16-driver field are up for grabs in next week’s regular-season finale at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
