NASCAR at Texas live updates, results, highlights from 2020 Cup Series playoff race

NASCAR’s Round of 8 race at Texas on Sunday has produced drama well before the firing of engines, hopefully foreshadowing a wild Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500.

Martin Truex Jr. was docked 20 points for failing a pre-race inspection and is now in serious trouble in his pursuit of a spot in the championship. There are only three positions remaining after Joey Logano’s win last weekend.

The main one-on-one battle to watch out for Sunday is between Brad Keselowski and Chase Elliott, who are separated by eight points on either side of the cut-off line.

Below are the Cup Series drivers still championship eligible, ranked by points:
