William Byron and the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team will breathe easy for the next two weeks knowing they are locked into the Round of 8 of the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs after scoring the surprising win in Sunday's Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 400 at Texas Motor Speedway. The victory was Byron's sixth of the 2023 season and marked the historic 300th for Hendrick Motorsports.

Denny Hamlin, Chris Buescher, Christopher Bell and Martin Truex Jr. round out the top five in the driver standings heading to next week's wild-card race at Talladega Superspeedway

Pole-sitter Bubba Wallace entered the day 12th in the Playoff standings with no bonus points on his side, but after a strong run in the No. 23 23XI Racing Toyota he was able to move to ninth in the standings, just two points behind Kyle Larson in eighth. Larson was in contention for the victory until the back end of the No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet came around while battling with Wallace for the race lead on Lap 250.

Kyle Busch and Ryan Blaney both found trouble in separate incidents in Sunday's race, falling to the bottom of the Playoff standings after the opening race of the Round of 12.
