Earlier this weekend, the NASCAR Xfinity Series race concluded with Jeb Burton winning at Talladega. The defending champion, Austin Cindric, started on pole position, but could not stop Burton from crossing the checkered flag first. By winning the race, Jeb vaulted up to fourth in the championship standings.

However, Cindric managed to finish second and extend his championship lead. He currently sits pretty on top with 367 points and two race wins under his belt. Meanwhile, Hemric has one win and is 59 points behind his title rival. The two of them are the only drivers in the 300s, with Harrison Burton on 275 points.

Meanwhile, cousin Jeb’s win brings him within five points of Harrison. However, he cannot afford to breathe easy, as fifth-placed Justin Haley is just one point behind him. Next on the list is AJ Allmendinger on 257 points, followed by Myatt Snider, Jeremy Clements, Justin Allgaier, and Noah Gragson. As it turns out, Gragson is the last driver in the 200s.

How does the rest of the Xfinity Series pack line up in the championship?

Brandon Jones and Brown are 11th and 12th, on 198 and 191 points, respectively. Riley Herbst is a little further away on 176 points while Michael Annett is on 175 points. Tommy Joe Martins sits in 15th place on 140 points, ahead of Josh Williams, Ryan Sieg, Landon Cassill, Ty Gibbs, and Josh Berry.
