With three races done and dusted, the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship is steadily taking shape. Austin Cindric still leads the championship with a healthy point margin. However, Myatt Snider has vaulted up the order with his Homestead-Miami win and is sitting in second. Occupying the third position in the standings is Daniel Hemric, despite a number of shenanigans in the race.

So far, Cindric has accumulated 147 points, including seven stage points. Meanwhile, Snider has 118 point and five-stage points under his belt. It is also noteworthy that Snider is locked in a tight battle with Hemric with just one point separating them. Jeb Burton is the final driver in the triple digits, with 106 points to his credit.

Behind Burton is Brandon Jones and Justin Haley on 93 and 90 points, respectively. Jeb’s cousin Harrison Burton is 7th on 89 points, with Jeremy Clements and Brandon Brown on 87 and 75 points, respectively. Rounding out the Top 10 is AJ Allmendinger with 70 points accumulated.

How do the rest of the NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers stack up?

Rile Herbst, Landon Cassill, Kyle Weatherman, Ryan Sieg, and Joe Graf Jr round out the Top 15. Daytona road course winner, Ty Gibbs lies 16th with 50 points under his belt, even though he missed one race. Meanwhile, drivers like Justin Allgaier and Noah Gragson, find themselves languishing in 26th and 27th places.

Admittedly, Gragson has been supremely unlucky in the past three races. This explains why he is so far down the order and only on a paltry 35 points. On the bright side of things, the season is long and there is plenty of time for Gragson to redeem himself. In addition to that, Allgaier will also be keen to bump himself up the order.

At the Homestead-Miami race, Gragson looked set to win, but got startled by an ailing David Starr. Apparently, Starr had picked up a puncture which drifted him towards the wall. Unfortunately, it also brought him into the trajectory of an unsuspecting Gragson, and the two crashed out. Now, everyone will look forward to next weekend’s race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and the fourth round of the 2021 Xfinity season.
