Reigning Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski was unable to overtake Kyle Busch in the final laps of the Cheez-It 355 at The Glen, but Keselowski's second-place finish vaulted him up four spots to No. 8 in the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup standings.
Martin Truex Jr. finished in third place at Watkins Glen International, also pushing him up four spots in the Sprint Cup standings to No. 10. Truex and Keselowski took the spots of Kasey Kahne and Jeff Gordon in the top 10 of the standings, with Kahne and Gordon each falling four slots thanks to poor showings on Sunday.
Busch's victory moved him up one spot in the standings to No. 5, switching positions with Dale Earnhardt Jr., who finished 30th at Watkins Glen. Current Sprint Cup leader Jimmie Johnson came in eighth place.
