After the fourth 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.
Kurt Busch won the Jeff Byrd 500 in Bristol, Tennessee, but the driver of the number 36 car, Dave Blaney, wound up in 25th place earning 19 points for the day and giving him a total of 51 points for the season and placing him in 34th place in the standings for the young season.
However, Jeff Burton (who came in 36th at Daytona at the start of the racing season), finished Bristol in 20th place and picked up 24 points. This gives Burton 74 points for the season (extending his lead over Blaney to 23 points) and moves him up to 29th place.
See you next Sunday at Martinsville.
