Kyle Larson stormed ahead for the lead early in Stage 2 and held on for the stage victory on Sunday afternoon at Dover International Speedway.
It was Larson’s fourth stage win of the year, and he has led for 135 of the first 240 laps of the race. Martin Truex Jr. finished second in the stage, followed by Chase Elliott, Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson.
Kevin Harvick isn’t necessarily on the cusp of being eliminated, but he’s had a rough start to the postseason. He entered Sunday’s race at 10th in the points, and he lost a lot of ground after making an unscheduled pit stop due to a loose wheel.
Heading into the final stage, Ryan Newman is 16th, Kurt Busch is 17th, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is 18th and Austin Dillon is 20th. They all have some ground to make up in the final stage if they want to continue their seasons and advance into the Round of 12.
