NASCAR Playoffs at Dover: Standings, TV schedule, live stream, title odds –

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads to Dover International Speedway for the final race in the Round of 16 on Sunday. Following the race, 12 drivers will move on to the next round for three more contests before narrowing to eight and eventually four at Homestead.

Martin Truex Jr., a 2016 winner at Dover, currently leads the group followed by Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski as drivers that have clinched a spot in the Round of 12. Drivers below the cutoff line include Austin Dillon, Ryan Newman, Kurt Busch and Kasey Kahne. Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who is tied with Dillon in points, is currently the last driver in on merit due to a tiebreaker.

“We gotta beat two guys in our minds and that’s Stenhouse and Newman,” Dillon said in an interview with CBS Sports. “You gotta do it the whole race. Segments and stages are going to be important so we’ll be focused on just having a solid race and a solid race will probably pay dividends at the end.”

Jimmie Johnson led the No. 48 team’s Victory Lane celebration after their triumph at Dover in June.

One playoff driver that will make it incredibly difficult for others to win this weekend is seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson. The No. 48 absolutely owns the Monster Mile, recording 11 wins there over the course of his historic career including his most recent checkered flag in June. Currently seventh in points, a 12th Dover win would not only clinch Johnson’s spot in the Round of 12, but also earn him five bonus points to carry over into the next two rounds.

“He really is the man at Dover,” Dillon said of Johnson. But when asked whether or not he tries to take anything away from the 48 team’s success Dillon explained,”We gotta focus on our program and trying to get the best finish out of our car and see what we can bring back for DOW and Chevrolet.”
