It is a fascinating battle at the top of the standings, as William Byron moved to the summit last weekend after finishing ninth in the Bass Pro Shops Night Race. Martin Truex Jr sits second in the standings, with Denny Hamlin moving up to third after claiming victory at the night race last Sunday.

Kyle Larson was the big loser last weekend, as he dropped from top spot to fourth in the standings, as he could only finish second in the Bass Pro Shops Night Race. The pressure will immediately be on Ryan Blaney, Bubba Wallace, and Brad Keselowski this weekend, as the three drivers sit in positions between tenth and 12th in the standings.

Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 400 Prediction

It should be a fascinating race in Texas this weekend. However, we will be happy to take a chance on Denny Hamlin winning for the second straight weekend. He has been incredibly consistent throughout the season, and victory this weekend could see him move to the top of the standings.
