The enhanced race format for 2017 provides drivers with additional opportunities to earn points throughout an event.


Each race except the spring Charlotte race is comprised of three stages -- Stage 1, Stage 2 and the Final Stage. The Coca-Cola 600 adds a fourth stage. Drivers who finish in the top 10 in Stage 1 and Stage 2 earn additional race points, with the winner of each stage earning 10 points, second place earning nine points, third place earning eight points, etc., down to one point for 10th place. Stage 3 of the Coca-Cola 600 awards points in the same manner as Stages 1 and 2 in the other races.


The Final Stage produces the race results and awards points across the field.


Below is a cumulative running tally of how many stage points drivers have earned this year, as well as their stage wins -- stage wins will provide an additional bonus point per win for the postseason.
