Now, I realize this is kind of fun and really has no bearing on what will happen by the end of the season, but has anyone stopped to look who is third in points in all three of NASCAR’s top-tier racing series?

As we head into our longest race of the year on the Sprint Cup side, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is sitting third in the standings, only 14 points behind leader Greg Biffle. Going into the Nationwide race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday, Austin Dillon is sitting third in the points of that series, only 43 points behind leader Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
