Through Qualifying

A note of caution with Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, and Christopher Bell: They are dropping to the rear on the pace laps but being scored from their original starting spots. That means that Hamlin has to make it back to P3 before he gets positive PD, Busch has to win to not cost you PD, and Bell is the most playable of the three as he just has to make it back to P22 to get out of negative points.
