1

Greg Biffle

0 2 1/12
Jimmie Johnson dominated, but Biffle got a huge victory, breaking a 49-race winless streak. He could be the first three-series champion in NASCAR history.

Jimmie Johnson

0 3 1/20
The five-time champion led nearly half the laps and had a great run until being balked by lapped traffic late in the race, which allowed Biffle to catch and pass him.

3

Matt Kenseth

1 1 1/13
Another top-five finish for Kenseth, as the Roush Fenway Fords looked stout all weekend, as they usually do at Texas.

4

Tony Stewart

2 3 1/15
For a guy who’d won seven of the previous 16 races, Stewart was pretty bad all night, finishing 24th.

5

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 3 1/13
Five top-10 finishes in seven races is impressive for Earnhardt, though he was not fast at the end.

6

Martin Truex Jr.

0 1 3/13
A pole and a sixth-place finish made for a great weekend for Truex, who has been strong all season.

7

Kevin Harvick

0 1 1/13
He was the fastest car early in the race, but Kevin Harvick could finish no better than ninth.

8

Ryan Newman

2 2 6/22
With a 21st-place finish, Newman was as out to lunch as his boss and teammate Stewart was.

Denny Hamlin

None of the Joe Gibbs Toyotas were as fast at the Michael Waltrip Racing ones. Wow.

10

Kyle Busch

0 7 3/17
He finished one spot ahead of teammate Hamlin, but 11th place was not what Busch was looking for.

The drive of the race belonged to Gordon, who qualified 34th and finished fourth.

13

AJ Allmendinger

0 1 13/24
Not as good as Martinsville, obviously, but 16th wasn’t bad for the ‘Dinger.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear
14

Clint Bowyer

0 2 3/19
Given that Martin was third and Truex sixth, Bowyer’s 18th-place finish in the third MWR entry was a bummer.

Brad Keselowski

1 5 1/21
Fuel-supply woes meant Keselowski finished way back in 36th.

0 4 2/22
Believe it or not, Kahne’s seventh-place run was his first top-10 finish of the season.

Major props to the elder Busch and Phoenix Racing, with a run of 13th at Texas.

Aric Almirola

0 1 15/20
Eh. Almirola finished 22nd, the midpoint of the field.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear
20

Paul Menard

0 1 7/20
It wasn’t a bad race for Menard, who came home 19th. But it wasn’t great, either. Last week: 19th.
