These points accrue over the season as do owner points.Drivers can also earn points based off of their finishes in the first two stages of the race. The driver who finishes first earns 10 points, the man who finishes in second earns nine and so on and so forth, points earned in those stages are then added to the points earned at the finish of a race.The points are added up over all of the races and there is a reset after the regular-season finale in the 26th race. Drivers who have earned wins or finish in the top 16 of the Cup Series standings then move on to the playoffs. Kevin Harvick came away with the checkered flag Sunday at the Consumers Energy 400 after he chased down Joey Logano in the final laps.It was Harvick’s second win of 2019 while Denny Hamlin and Kyle Larson placed second and third, respectively. Jimmie Johnson changes crew chief as clock ticks on Cup Series playoffs Logano ultimately finished in 17th place after dealing with fuel issues, which forced him to make a late pit stop.Harvick might have edged out Logano on the Michigan track, but Logano maintains the advantage in the updated rankings.
