Greg DePalma, C.J. Radune (RotoWire) and Eric Smith (Race Review Online) take an in-depth look at the NASCAR Cup Seriesplayoff standings as Saturday’s Bass Pro Shops Night Raceserves as the finale of the Round of 16. Austin Dillon has become a big storyline in this stage, with a pair of top-5 finishes to start the playoffs. At the other side of the momentum spectrum, Ryan Blaney is at the bottom of the table despite winning earlier this year. Clint Bowyer sits just above the cut line and William Byron just below, separated by three points.
