This team has dominated the Xfinity season and will likely produce its champion


One quick look at the NASCAR Xfinity Series standings and it's easy to tell which team has dominated this season.

The top three drivers in the series--William Byron, Justin Allgaier and Elliott Sadler--are all teammates for JR Motorsports. The Xfinity playoffs start on Saturday at Kentucky Speedway, and those three drivers are the favorites to win the championship.

Byron has three wins this season, which is the most of any driver in the series. Allgaier is right behind him with two wins, and Sadler won the regular season championship.

"It's interesting because when we're good, we're usually good as a company," Allgaier said via ESPN. "When we're bad, we're usually bad as a company. If we make it to Homestead and we're not on our A-game, we're in trouble.

"On the flip side, if we can use each other as help to be able to make it to the final round, that's going to be big."

Sadler said he and his teammates try to help each other, and it's been mutually beneficial for everyone involved.

Team co-owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. said the team works well together which has led to a successful season.

"The crew chiefs all have a close relationship that goes beyond JR Motorsports, so they work really well together," Earnhardt said.

"The drivers have each other's mutual respect. That's why we're so successful."

Byron is the favorite to win the championship considering he has the most wins this season, and it will be the last season he competes in the series full time since he is moving up to the Cup Series next year.

But Allgaier and Sadler both have the potential to win the championship as well, and either way it should be a fun day for the JR Motorsports team at Homestead.
