Twelve down, 24 to go. Here’s the Cup Series order of finish from Sunday night’s Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte, North Carolina:

KEY: *- Led The Most Laps
® = Rookie of the Year Candidate
(I) = Ineligible to earn points

Editor’s Note: Remember, some drivers will score zero points as they’re only allowed to accumulate them in one of NASCAR’s top three series: Sprint Cup, Nationwide, or Camping World Trucks.
