Less than three months ago, Tyler Ankrum was starting-and-parking for NEMCO Motorsports.

Denny Hamlin snatched the trophy and checkered flag on Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, but there’s no debating that Matt DiBenedetto snatched our hearts.

When NASCAR opted to go to a playoff system following Matt Kenseth’s 2003 title-winning season, there was mixed reaction. His one-win season, dubbed by some as “The Matt Kenseth Rule,” is a far cry from the win-and-you’re-in format we’ve had for the past few seasons.

Despite leading 234 of 250 laps in the NASCAR Xfinity Series from the pole on Saturday afternoon at Iowa Speedway, Christopher Bell left without a trophy.
