Today's NASCAR Number is 7.

7: The position in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series owners’ standings of the No. 51 Phoenix Racing Chevrolet. Three drivers -- Regan Smith, AJ Allmendinger and Austin Dillon -- have combined to put James Finch’s Chevy SS in the owners’ top 10. With current-year owner points kicking in this week, Finch’s transporter will be parking in high cotton at Bristol, between the No. 55 of Michael Waltrip Racing and the No. 20 of Joe Gibbs Racing. That’s quite a move from the 51’s customary position in the “Back 40” of the Cup garage. Allmendinger is slated to drive at Bristol this weekend and will try to keep the magic going.
