The NASCAR Cup Series regular season is drawing to a close, and all eyes will be on Daytona with just one playoff spot remaining.

Any driver currently in the top 30 for points without a win can lock in that final spot by winning the Coke Zero Sugar 400 on Saturday. If a playoff driver or a driver ineligible for the playoffs claimed first place, then two drivers could grab last place in points: Tyler Reddick and Austin Dillon.

Richard Childress Racing’s two teammates are neck and neck in the standings, with Reddick holding a slight advantage, 677-652. If the race is on the wire, expect to see these drivers battle it out with such high stakes.
