Joey Logano advanced to the NASCAR Cup Series Championship with a win at Kansas Speedway Oct. 18.

Other top drivers struggled, however. Denney Hamlin, who's No. 2 in the standings, finished 15th after a wreck. And engine trouble saddled Kurt Busch, who finished 38th. 

The race at Texas Motor Speedway represents the second-to-last contest before the Cup Series Championship at Phoenix Raceway Nov. 8. The top four drivers will advance to that race. 

Here are the standings heading into this race:

  1. Kevin Harvick, 4,115 points
  2. Denny Hamlin, 4,094 points
  3. Brad Keselowski, 4,082 points
  4. Chase Elliott, 4,074 points
  5. Joey Logano, 4,064 points
  6. Alex Bowman, 4,055 points
  7. Martin Truex, Jr., 4,051 points
  8. Kurt Busch, 4,009 points

Harvick and Hamlin have been the dominant drivers for much of the season, with Harvick racking up nine wins and Hamlin notching seven. The next winningest driver has four victories. 

But each weekend carries increasing significance as the championship nears. You'll have to tune in to see how the drivers fare in Texas.
