NASCAR Cup Series Driver Power Rankings after 2018 Gander Outdoors 400 (Dover)

NASCAR Cup Series Driver Power Rankings after 2018 Gander Outdoors 400 (Dover)

"We had a pretty uneventful race and just kind of kept our nose clean and did everything we needed to do to get a good finish", Hamlin said. Two laps later, the Dover spring victor was forced to return after his left rear tire went flat when a lug nut broke a valve stem.

Dover opened a betting kiosk Saturday morning in its FanZone, offering several proposition bets on the race and winning odds for drivers in the field. But when a slew of issues took Kevin Harvick, Aric Almirola and Clint Bowyer late, Elliott was there in the No. 9 Chevrolet to pounce.

Right in front of him was his first victory of the season and a guaranteed transfer into the Round of 8 of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs.

"Glad to see me and Chase can finish 1-2 here in a Playoff race and not have any controversy, so happy for those guys".

The only positive from the final stage of racing for Harvick occurred on a restart with six laps to go when a multi-car wreck kicked off in front of his Ford.

Nascar president Steve Phelps has said that the North American stock car-racing series is likely to implement gambling rules from its 2019 season after the Dover International Speedway in DE launched legal, on-site betting. Elliott now automatically advances to the next round of the playoffs.

Almirola, who ended up 13th, was asked if he believed he had a shot at earning his first win since the July 2014 race at Daytona.

Harvick and Kyle Busch are tied with seven victories this season.

Rounding out the top five were non-playoff driver Erik Jones and playoff driver Kurt Busch.

After exiting Turn 2 on the restart lap, Almirola tapped the outside wall on the backstretch and triggered a five-car accident - all of them still in the playoffs - that ended his winning chances. His No. 48 Chevrolet was forced to the garage at Dover during the pace laps because of mechanical woes and he finished 36th. He's smart. He's like his dad (NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott).

Johnson's bid for a record eighth NASCAR Cup title ended last week when he was eliminated from the playoffs. Truex (Furniture Row Racing), Kyle Busch (Joe Gibbs Racing) and Kyle Larson (Chip Ganassi Racing) make it 12.

"I think that was our best opportunity to win the race, and it was our best opportunity to score the most points we could score", crew chief Alan Gustafson said.

Blaney, one of NASCAR's blossoming young stars, earned an automatic spot in the second round when he zipped past Jimmie Johnson and Martin Truex Jr. for the surprise win on the speedway and infield road course blend. Keselowski 190;K. Busch 191-194;K. Harvick 195-242;C. Bowyer 243;K. Harvick 244-320;K. Busch 321-322;A. Almirola 323-341;B.

Fans and bettors lined up at the kiosk hours before the race started to wager on more than just the victor of Sunday's race.
