Saturday’s Overton’s 200 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon was dominated by a trio of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers, with Kyle Busch winning the race and Brad Keselowski and Kyle Larson taking stage wins. As a result, playoff points weren’t earned by Xfinity Series championship-eligible drivers on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the JR Motorsports trio of Elliott Sadler, William Byron and Justin Allgaier maintained their positions in the top-three of the points standings, separated from each other by significant cushions and, as a trio, dramatically ahead of the rest of the competition. The lowest of the three, Allgaier, is more than 100 points behind the next driver in line, Brennan Poole.

Also, Byron and Allgaier are playoff locks with race wins, Byron with two and Allgaier with one. the only other title-eligible driver with a 2017 win, so far, is Ryan Reed.
