2012 NASCAR Point Standings After Las Vegas: Greg Biffle Leads Sprint Cup Series

Las Vegas NASCAR race winner Tony Stewart gained eight spots in the Sprint Cup Series standings following his victory on Sunday, but he wasn't the biggest gainer of the day.

That honor belonged to Jimmie Johnson, who moved up 14 positions to 23rd in points after a runnerup Las Vegas finish. Jamie McMurray's eighth-place run paid big dividends as well, as the Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing driver vaulted 11 spots from 36th to 25th in points.

Not everyone had such a good day. Brad Keselowski plummeted nine spots in the standings after a fuel pump problem – he's now 21st – and Bobby Labonte, AJ Allmendinger and Landon Cassill lost five spots apiece.
