Four races remain in the NASCAR Xfinity Series regular season, beginning with Sunday’s Johnsonville 180 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., the last of three road-course races of the 2017 season and the only NASCAR national-level race of the upcoming weekend. Races also remain at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway, Richmond (Va.) Racing and Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill., before the playoffs get underway at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta on Sept. 23.

The JR Motorsports trio of Elliott Sadler, William Byron and Justin Allgaier still lead the way in the points standings, with Byron leading the way in wins with three. He and Allgaier also are two of only three series regulars to get to victory lane, so far, in 2017. Ryan Reed is the other Xfinity championship-eligible driver with a win.

Kyle Busch prevented series regulars from garnering playoff points by winning the race and all stages in the most recent race, the Food City 300 at Bristol (Ten.) Motor Speedway on Aug. 18.

Heading into the final four races of the regular season, Brendan Gaughan occupies the last playoff spot, 12th in the standings. Ross Chastain and J.J. Yeley are the first two drivers out, both 43 points behind Gaughan.

Here’s a look at the standings after the Bristol Motor Speedway race:

1. William Byron — 3 wins, 17 playoff points
2. Justin Allgaier — 1 win, 8 playoff points
3. Ryan Reed — 1 win, 5 playoff points
4. Elliott Sadler — 807 points, 5 playoff points
