1. Round of 12

A dozen drivers advanced into the NASCAR Round of 12 playoff segment. The four left behind were Jimmie Johnson, Austin Dillon, Denny Hamlin and Erik Jones. Of the 12, seven are from the Ford camp, including all four Stewart-Haas Racing drivers, counting Clint Bowyer, who jumped over the cut line. “Pretty crazy,” Bowyer said. “I didn’t expect that to happen, but I knew it was gonna be wild.”
