NASCAR Point Standings 2012: Carl Edwards Falls From Chase Spot At Dover

Despite problems for Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch during Sunday's FedEx 400 at Dover, both drivers were able to remain in the top 10 of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series point standings.

The same couldn't be said for Carl Edwards, though, who dropped two spots to 12th and is on the outside of the Chase for now.

Clint Bowyer used a fifth-place run to leapfrog Brad Keselowski in the standings and move into the top 10.

Meanwhile, Kasey Kahne closed to within one point of Ryan Newman for the final of two Wild Card spots. Keselowski holds the other Wild Card.
