After the third race of the Sprint Cup for NASCAR, here is the update on the standings for the two drivers I am following based on their connection to the number 36.
For the Kobalt Tools 400 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Dave Blaney – the driver of the number 36 car – came in 34th place, earning 11 points and thus giving him a total of 32 points for the young season and moving him up one spot in the standings to 35th.
However, Jeff Burton (who finished 36th at Daytona which is why I am following him this season) finished in 21st place and earned 23 points. That number gives Burton a total of 50 points and keeps him in 32nd place.
For my tracking, Burton has extended his lead over Blaney from 6 points to 18.
