Regan Smith and Trevor Bayne spent the first five weeks of the NASCAR Nationwide Series battling for the series’ points lead. But the points picture is quite different after both drivers had a tough time Friday night. Regan Smith’s seventh place finish dropped him to second place , two points back from new points leader Chase Elliot. Bayne finished Friday’s race in twenty-third, dropping him to fifth overall in the points standings. Now, both drivers look to move back up the ladder this weekend when the Nationwide Series heads to Darlington Speedway this weekend.
