Updated #NASCAR Sprint Cup Points Standings

Who else was cheering for A.J. Allmendinger  as he raced to pass Matt Kenseth and then try to catch the No. 18 Toyota of race winner Kyle Busch???  NASCAR Race Mom loves the underdog and A.J. put on quite a valiant performance.

Reigning champion, Kyle Busch had another dominant weekend.

Of course, reigning champion, Kyle Busch had another dominant weekend as evidenced by his sweep of both NASCAR-sanctioned events for the sixth time in his career.  Nevertheless, it was more satisfying, for me, to witness Kyle Larson's enthusiasm at his third place finish.

Pole-winner, Joey Logano struggled for much of the day and finished 11th. Crossed the finish line with his hood bent back, partially obstructing his view.
