With his win June 4 in the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover (Del.) International Speedway, Jimmie Johnson not only tied Cale Yarborough for sixth on the all-time winningest premier series drivers list with 83, he also claimed his third win of the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, most of any driver, so far.

Meanwhile, the two drivers atop the points standings, Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Larson had positive points days. Both drivers claimed stage points in the first two stages of the race, en route to top-three race finishes (Larson second and Truex 3rd). Aside from Johnson’s five playoff points for the win, Truex claimed the other two available playoff points by winning the first two stages of the race. Despite Johnson leading in the wins column, Truex has racked up the most playoff points with 18.
