Joey Logano moved up a spot to fourth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase standings with Saturday's win at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Logano became the fifth Sprint Cup Series driver to reach three wins this season, joining points leader Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Brad Keselowski and Jimmie Johnson.

Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards have two wins each in 2014, and are also locked into the 16-driver playoff field provided they attempt to qualify for the next two races.

Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, Aric Almirola, AJ Allmendinger and Kurt Busch have each won once, and are also in the Chase as long as they qualify for the final two regular season races at Atlanta and Richmond.
