NASCAR Point Standings 2012: Sprint Cup Series Leader Greg Biffle Retains Top Spot

Ever since the Las Vegas race three weeks into the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, Roush Fenway Racing driver Greg Biffle has topped the point standings.

This week is no different, as Biffle remained in the No. 1 spot – 15 points ahead of Martin Truex Jr. – following a fifth-place finish on Sunday at Kansas Speedway.

Truex is next, followed by Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kansas race winner Denny Hamlin.

The biggest winner on Sunday – aside from Hamlin, of course – was Jamie McMurray, who shot up four spots in the standings to 19th.

As for the biggest loser? That label went to AJ Allmendinger, who dropped four spots to 23rd. Mark Martin fell four spots as well, but Martin isn't running for a Chase spot this year.

Here are the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standings after Kansas (relation to the Chase in parentheses):

  1. Greg Biffle (+85 points inside Chase)
