NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11520203 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Hot+or+Not%3A+Indianapolis NASCAR

The boys of NASCAR were at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend to take part in the Brickyard 400. Who kissed the bricks and who hit a wall? We’ve got you covered!

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11519841 Not: David Reutimann Not%3A+David+Reutimann NASCAR

As quickly as he came into the Chase conversation, Reuti was kicked out of the Chase conversation. And wouldn’t you know, a Joe Gibbs car did it to him again. At least it wasn’t directly this time.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11520185 Hot: Chip Ganassi Hot%3A+Chip+Ganassi NASCAR

As a car owner, Chip Ganassi (second from right) is one of the best in the business. Now he has a Brickyard 400 trophy and a Triple Crown (Daytona 500 win, Indy 500 win, Brickyard 400 win) to go with it. Bravo, Chip! Bravo!

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11519842 Hot: Carl Edwards Hot%3A+Carl+Edwards NASCAR

Carl didn’t get into trouble, and he knocked off his third-straight top 10 finish. Edwards is suddenly putting some distance of his own on the Chase cutoff line, and currently sits 10th in the standings.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11520204 Not: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Not%3A+Dale+Earnhardt+Jr.+ NASCAR

Junior was having a mediocre day before problems in front of him turned it into a bad one. He’s shown signs of breaking out, but lacks the consistency to be a legit title threat I think. Best thing for Junior to do at Pocono: Survive.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11520184 Not: Phantom debris cautions Not%3A+Phantom+debris+cautions NASCAR

They are not talked about much anymore, but “phantom debris” cautions still impact races, as they did at Indy. I counted two of the six cautions in the 400 were for “phantom debris”, including the one that shook up the field and put Juan Pablo Montoya in mid-pack late in the race. Just keep an eye on them.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11519965 Hot: Clint Bowyer Hot%3A+Clint+Bowyer NASCAR

Bowyer is showing some muscle under pressure and is starting to separate himself from the Chase cutoff line. He’ll need to keep the momentum up at Pocono, and seeing as he’s fond of the place, that shouldn’t be too difficult.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11519966 Not: Jimmie Johnson Not%3A+Jimmie+Johnson NASCAR

Jimmie was so bad, Travis Kvapil kept passing him. But seeing as he hasn’t won in three races and the circuit is heading to a track nobody really likes, I’d say J.J. is about due for a win.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11520183 Hot: Greg Biffle Hot%3A+Greg+Biffle NASCAR

I called Greg out two weeks ago and he didn’t disappoint at Indy. Biff carried the Ford banner this week and almost took the manufacturer to Victory Lane for the first time this year. His third-place effort was a much-needed good points day.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11520549 Not: Juan Pablo Montoya Not%3A+Juan+Pablo+Montoya NASCAR

Tony Kanaan has the Indy 500, Marcos Ambrose has Montreal, Juan Pablo Montoya has the Brickyard 400. Another dominating performance; another heartbreak for Juan. His crew chief took the fall, but it wasn’t his fault. It just wasn’t meant to be this year.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Indianapolis Motor Speedway 11520205 Hot: Jamie McMurray. Hot%3A+Jamie+McMurray. NASCAR

He might not make the Chase, but he knows how to win the big ones. J-Mac followed up his emotional Daytona 500 victory with another win he’ll remember forever; this one coming at Indy. Congrats Jamie!
