2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Standings

The 2012 Samsung Mobile 500 will be held on Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway, and though it's early, current Sprint Cup Series standings leader Greg Biffle is in good position to extend his lead in the standings on Saturday night.

Biffle will start third in the field on Saturday, behind pole winner Martin Truex Jr. and last year's Samsung Mobile 500 champion, Matt Kenseth.

Biffle currently leads Dale Earnhardt Jr. by six points in the standings. Tony Stewart, Matt Kenseth, Kevin Harvick and Truex Jr. are currently tied for third in the standings, just 12 points behind Biffle.

NASCAR superstar Jimmie Johnson is currently No. 10 in the standings, but is only 37 points off of Biffle's pace.
