NASCAR Point Standings After Bristol: Greg Biffle Holds On To Sprint Cup Series Lead

Greg Biffle and Kevin Harvick continued to occupy the top two spots in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series point standings after Sunday's Bristol race, but they have some new challengers.

Matt Kenseth's runnerup finish moved him up two spots to third in the standings – he's now 12 points behind teammate Biffle – and Martin Truex Jr's third-place run vaulted him four positions to fourth.

Race winner Brad Keselowski was the day's biggest gainer, jumping eight spots, but Clint Bowyer, Jimmie Johnson, Juan Pablo Montoya and Jamie McMurray all moved up six spots apiece.
