Monday's fuel-mileage race at Chicagoland Speedway dramatically shook up the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup point standings after just one race.
Race runner-up Kevin Harvick is the new Chase points leader after former No. 1 seed Kyle Busch ran out of fuel on the last lap and fell all the way to ninth in the standings.
Tony Stewart is second – seven points behind Harvick – and Carl Edwards is third.
Five-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson's 11th-place finish puts him eighth in the standings. Johnson is 16 points behind Harvick.
Denny Hamlin took the biggest hit of the day. His 31st-place finish left him in last place – 41 points behind the leaders, which is basically a full race.
