1. In the hole
Alex Bowman has dug himself a deep playoff hole thanks to a 28th-place finish at Dover. He is 92 points behind points leader Kevin Harvick and 34 points below the cut line for advancing. Car owner Rick Hendrick has two drivers in the playoffs, but only one going into the Round of 8. We hope Alex can get the win down there, said Hendrick, while celebrating with his Dover winner Chase Elliott.
