Mechanical failures, cut tires, and wrecks filled the 500 laps of Bristol with constant drama. When the dust settled, there was another new winner, and 12 drivers left to fight for the 2022 championship.

Both Richard Childress Racing drivers — Tyler Reddick and Austin Dillon — were eliminated. Former Cup champions Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick were also eliminated.

Daytona 500 winner Austin Cindric was the last driver to advance, sneaking in by a mere two points.

The next round consists of races at Texas Motor Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway, and the Charlotte ROVAL. The top-eight drivers in points will then advance further into the playoffs.
