While he is still winless in the 2018 NASCAR Cup Series season, Team Penske’s Ryan Blaney has locked up a spot in the playoffs.

With his sixteenth place complete in the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race, the 24th race of the 36-race NASCAR Cup Series season, on Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway, Team Penske's Brad Keselowski secured a compartment in the playoffs because of his point add up to.

Keselowski, who drives the #2 Ford, presently sits in eighth place in the title standings and eleventh in the playoffs picture.


Only two races stay on the consistent season plan, implying that a greatest of two drivers who are as of now outside of the playoff picture can win their way into the playoffs.

On the off chance that two drivers who are at present outside of the playoff picture were to win the last two races of the general season, the playoff cut line would climb by two positions. It would move from between Hendrick Motorsports' Alex Bowman and Roush Fenway Racing's Ricky Stenhouse in fifteenth and sixteenth place, individually, in the title standings to between Stewart-Haas Racing's Aric Almirola and Hendrick Motorsports' Jimmie Johnson in thirteenth and fourteenth, separately.

Keselowski sits 237 focuses over the present playoff cut line while Johnson right now sits 111 focuses over the present playoff cut line, which means Keselowski drives Johnson by 126 focuses.

Johnson can just make up a most extreme of 110 focuses (108 focuses accepting Keselowski races) over Keselowski through the span of the last two races of the normal season, as drivers can score a greatest of 55 focuses in a race (10 focuses for winning stage one, 10 focuses for winning stage two and 35 focuses on completing the race in second place) and even last place finishers get one point.

Along these lines, Keselowski can't in any way, shape or form fall beneath the playoff cut line regardless of how high it rises. Subsequently, he has secured a playoff billet.

Johnson winning possibly either of the last two races of the standard season would not cause the playoff slice line to move because of the way that he is as of now in the playoff picture.

As a result of the way that Team Penske's Joey Logano secured a playoff compartment with his win in the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway in late April and the way that Team Penske's Ryan Blaney has additionally secured a playoff billet in view of his point add up to, every one of the three of Team Penske's drivers are bolted into this current season's playoffs.

A sum of 12 playoff spots has been bolted up by drivers so far this season. Thus, four playoff positions are still up forgotten with two races staying in the normal season. Of the 12 drivers who have secured playoffs compartments so far this season, nine have done as such by winning no less than one race this year. Keselowski and two others, Blaney and Chip Ganassi Racing's Kyle Larson, have done as such because of their point aggregates.

The 2018 NASCAR Cup Series playoffs are planned to start on Sunday, September 16 with the South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada. There are, be that as it may, even now two customary season races to be challenged before then at Darlington Raceway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
