NASCAR Richmond Race Results: Updated Sprint Cup Point Standings

Former Richard Petty Motorsports teammates AJ Allmendinger and Paul Menard went in opposite directions on Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway, swapping positions in the point standings.

Allmendinger was the biggest gainer of anyone in the Sprint Cup Series, jumping up four positions from 15th to 11th. Menard, meanwhile, was the biggest loser and fell four spots from 11th to 15th.

That's what happens when drivers close in the standings have dramatically different results – even in the new points system. Allmendinger finished seventh while Menard – now of Richard Childress Racing – was 37th.

Other big gainers included Kyle Busch, Clint Bowyer and Joey Logano – who moved up three spots apiece. The news wasn't as good for Juan Pablo Montoya, Jeff Gordon and Martin Truex Jr., who each fell three spots.
