Denny Hamlin

2 6 1/12
Don’t look now, but Hamlin is on a roll, with finishes of fourth or better in four of the past five points races, including consecutive runner-up finishes at Darlington and Charlotte.

Greg Biffle

1 3 1/12
Fourth place wasn’t bad, except for the fact Biffle led 204 of 400 laps in the race. Once again, though, the lap leader can’t seal the deal.

Jimmie Johnson

1 2 1/20
Thanks to a horrific night on pit road, the man who crushed the field a week ago at the Sprint All-Star race failed to lead a single lap and finished 11th.

Matt Kenseth

1 2 1/13
A loose wheel held Kenseth back as he ultimately finished 10th. He admitted afterward that he didn’t have a winning car.

Sixth place? After last year, all of Junior Nation was expecting Our Long National Nightmare to finally end. It didn’t.

Kevin Harvick

As much as Harvick hates Charlotte, he has run well here lately. This time, he was eighth.

Carl Edwards

Like his Roush Fenway teammate Matt Kenseth, Edwards fought back from a loose wheel to post a top 10.

Dude, WTH? A 25th-place finish? Seriously?

A 13th-place finish, right behind teammate Martin Truex Jr., showed the MWR Toyotas were off just a bit.

Ryan Newman

1 4 6/22
At least Newman ran better than his boss did, which isn’t saying a whole lot.

A first career Sprint Cup pole, a 16th-place finish and a move into the top 20 in points. All in all, a good weekend for Almirola.

Still not running where he should, Burton cranked out a 19th-place finish.

When your teammates finish second and third and you finish 23rd, that’s trouble.
