L.P. Dumoulin (#47 WeatherTech Canada/Bellemare Dodge) finished 2nd in Saturday's NASCAR Pinty's Series (NPS) Alberta Has New Energy 300 at the Edmonton Int'l Raceway in Wetaskiwin, Alberta.

He started 5th in the lineup and completed all laps of the 300-lap event. Dumoulin, who competed in all 6 series races so far this season, advanced two positions from 8th to 6th in the 2016 NPS championship standings after this event.

Paul Menard entered the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard as a dark horse after qualifying 23rd. A previous winner on this track, he expected more from his race trim and ultimately got it to the tune of a 10th-place finish.

This was only Menard’s second top-10 on this track, with his other strong run resulting in the 2011 Brickyard 400 victory. He has not been bad, however, and this marks his sixth top-15 in the past seven attempts at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Austin Dillon finished ninth in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard, advanced one spot in the standings, and gave his team a 58-point cushion over the Chase bubble.

As the regular season races wind down and there are fewer opportunities for unique winners to join the Chase, points become increasingly important. A 58-point cushion over 16th in the standings and 48 points over 15th-place Kyle Larson gives this team a little breathing room, but it is not enough that fantasy players need to start worrying about the No. 3 gambling wildly.

Martin Truex Jr. finished eighth in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard after starting the afternoon eighth. This was his fourth result of 11th or better in the past five Indianapolis Motor Speedway races.

Truex would have preferred to finish in the top five like he did last year, but the big picture reveals he did not crash or experience any trouble. That is important as the series counts down the regular season races with six remaining before the Chase.

Joey Logano and teammate Brad Keselowski gambled on a race strategy no one else employed, but it did not pay off in a win. Logano challenged for the top spot, but got dropped out of the top five late in the going and finished seventh. Keselowski was involved in an accident in the closing laps and finished 17th.

The Penske pals stretched their fuel mileage early in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard, but once the race experienced several cautions at the end Logano and Keselowski were forced to race for the win on the strength of their engine and race setup. Logano pushed hard on a late restart and got out of the groove—dropping from second to seventh as a result. Keselowski was in the wrong place at the wrong time. This organization has little to lose by gambling and that has marked their past few attempts.

Kevin Harvick finished sixth in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard and officially regained the momentum it seemed he might have lost at Daytona International Speedway. In that race, he suffered crash damage and finished 39th, which was his second sub-15th-place result of the season.

Harvick was incredibly frustrated with his team at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, however, which belied his fourth-place finish. Regardless of their struggles, Harvick now has seven top-10s in his last eight races this season and continues to be one of the top points’ earners.

Battling for a top-five position late in the race, Carl Edwards’ Toyota got tight entering turn one. He pushed up the track, clipped Ryan Newman, and crashed hard. Edwards was unable to continue and finished 35th after starting on the outside pole.

This was the second time in two weeks the two drivers got together late in the going. At New Hampshire Motor Speedway last week, the incident seemed to be triggered by Newman; this time it was Edwards’ fault, but the damage to their relationship on the track will begin to take a toll.

Tony Stewart finished 11th in his final Crown Royal 400; Jeff Gordon finished 15th, which was "better than last year," according to the driver after the end of the race.

Gordon came out of retirement to help the No. 88 team and finished in the same range as most of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s 2016 efforts. Stewart ran well enough to finish in the top 10 most of the race, but was hit with a speeding penalty late. Both ran respectably well in what will most likely be their last trip to the Brickyard in a race car.

For the first time since week two of 2016, Kyle Larson finds himself in Chase contention. This came on as the result of a fifth-place finish in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard. He now has a 10-point advantage over the bubble and Kasey Kahne.

Larson needs more top-10s to stay in contention, but mostly he needs to continue to execute consistency. From Dover International Speedway through Daytona International Speedway he swept the top 15 in six races. He ran well in his last two attempts, but finished 19th at Kentucky Speedway and was 17th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Denny Hamlin finished fourth in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard after starting the day fourth. He was the third Joe Gibbs Racing driver in the top four, which is precisely where the organization started the afternoon.

Hamlin has not been at his best on the 2.5-mile flat tracks than the shorter versions recently—and it appeared he would get bitten again this week after getting a speeding penalty mid-race. Notably, that penalty came at the same time as Jimmie Johnson’s and both recovered to finish in the top five.

Jimmie Johnson overcame a speeding penalty and bad track position late in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard to finish third at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He started the day 13th.

With 10 laps remaining in regulation, Johnson was running 11th. He was the best of the Hendrick Motorsports’ group at the time and it appeared they would fail to place any of their drivers in the top 10 for the second straight year in this race. Johnson’s third-place finish saved the organization’s honor, but it is too soon to know if they will carry this momentum forward to the next flat track race at Pocono Raceway.
