2012 NASCAR Standings: Greg Biffle Maintains Slim Lead Over Matt Kenseth

With Sunday's FedEx 400 at Dover in the books, everything got a little tighter at the top of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standings. On top is still Greg Biffle, but he leads Matt Kenseth by just one point.

Rounding out the top-five are Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin and Jimmie Johnson.

The most intriguing race, though, might be for the second Wild Card spot. After Sunday's results, Kasey Kahne trails Ryan Newman by one point.
