Tyler Courtney, who won three features in the past week, jumps to third with an average finish of 5.472 in 36 events.

Pennsylvania racer Troy Wagaman Jr. and World of Outlaws veteran Donny Schatz complete the top five.

Danny Dietrich continues to pace the Eastern region, while Blaine Baxter has moved to the top of the Western standings. Sweet holds the top of the Mid-America region standings.

Cale Thomas leads the Great Lakes region and Austin McCarl holds a one-point advantage over Aaron Reutzel in the Great Plains standings. A.J. Flick continues to pace the PA-OH region and Robbie Price has moved to the lead in the Northwestern stanza.

Gravel and Anthony Macri have each won nine features, while Courtney has eight triumphs.
