NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Christopher Bell played 2017 NASCAR Xfinity Series playoff spoiler Saturday at Kansas Speedway near Kansas City with his win of the Kansas Lottery 300. Meanwhile, the JR Motorsports trio of William Byron, Justin Allgaier and Elliott Sadler were the three highest-finishing Xfinity Series regulars, with Byron finishing fourth, Allgaier fifth and Salder in seventh.

The three teammates have been among the tops in the series throughout the season, so far, so they’re all the top-three drivers in the championship standings after the Kansas race, the fourth race of the playoffs and the first race in the second round, or Round of Eight.

Two more races remain before the playoff field is cut in half for the season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway next month. With a Truck Series driver playing spoiler for the first race of the second round, all four finale positions remain up front grabs to, possibly, be determined by points.

After one race of the three-race round, the three JRM drivers are joined by Chip Ganassi Racing’s Brennan Poole in the provisional four championship slots. Poole sits atop the bubble, but he’s only five points ahead of fifth-place Matt Tifft.

The other three drivers aren’t far back, either. As a matter-of-fact, eighth-polace driver Cole Custer is is only eight points behind Poole. Ryan Reed and Daniel Hemric are tied, a single point behind Tifft and two points ahead of Custer.

Here’s a look at the NASCAR Xfinity Series standings after the Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway:
1. Justin Allgaier — 3066 points
2. William Byron — 3064
3. Elliott Sadler — 3055
4. Brennan Poole — 3038
