NASCAR Xfinity Series championship-eligible drivers were denied victory lane and playoff points in Saturday’s rain-delayed Alsco 300 at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, with Kyle Busch taking the race win and Erik Jones and Ryan Blaney claiming stage wins.

Meanwhile, Elliott Sadler maintained his points lead with a 12th-place finish, as JR Motorsports maintains its stranglehold on the top-three in the points standings. Sadler’s JR teammates William Byron and Justin Allgaier are second and third in points. Byron and Allgaier also are two of only three winners among series regulars, so far, this season, with Roush Fenway Racing driver Ryan Reed being the other. Byron is the only two-time winner. With this wins, Byron is the only driver with double digits in the playoff-point column with 11. Allgaier had seven and Sadler four, while Reed has five for his win at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway at the start of the season. No other driver has more than one.
