Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch are first and second in the points, respectively, and it’s safe to say those two have dominated this season.
Both drivers picked up stage wins during the regular season finale at Richmond, which was a familiar sight for NASCAR fans. Truex picked up his 18th stage win of the season, while Busch won his 11th stage.
That’s 29 combined stage wins for Truex and Busch. The rest of the NASCAR drivers have 24 stage wins combined. That’s right. Truex and Busch have been so dominant, they have more stage wins than the rest of NASCAR drivers combined.
Brad Keselowski is the closest driver to Busch in stage wins, and he only has four this year. Truex has four race wins this year, which is the most of any driver entering Richmond.
Both Truex and Busch are favorites to win the championship this year after their dominating seasons. It’s been impressive for both, though NASCAR fans probably would’ve enjoyed more parity this year.
