Jimmie Johnson

0 - 1/7
After his No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet SS flunked tech on Friday, Johnson started 43rd on Sunday. He finished sixth, which was a most impressive run.

Clint Bowyer

0 1 2/15
Frankly, a 13th-place finish was below expectations for Bowyer, who usually is very strong at New Hampshire.

5

Carl Edwards

0 2 1/19
Historically, New Hampshire has never been one of Roush Fenway Racing’s best tracks, so an 8th-place run isn’t too bad.

Fast but frustrated, Busch claimed second place behind Vickers and won the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 2 1/14
This seemed like one of Junior’s races from the bad old days: Fast early, but continued to fade as the race went on.

Kurt Busch

0 2 2/19
Without question, the elder Busch had the car to beat, but found himself back in the pack, where he got wrecked out of contention.

Brad Keselowski

0 6 1/16
A pole and a top five made for a huge weekend for the defending NASCAR Sprint Cup champion

Greg Biffle

0 - 4/18
For a guy who won at Michigan and was second at Pocono, Biffle was virtually invisible all weekend at New Hampshire.

Tony Stewart

0 2 1/20
Nothing is tougher than running out of gas on the last lap. Stewart was second when the white flag fell but finished 26th.

Kasey Kahne

0 - 2/15
A tremendous save after a lurid moment on the backstretch helped Kahne salvage an 11th-place finish

13

Martin Truex Jr.

0 2 9/20
Given that his teammate won the race, 16th wasn’t all that much to get excited about for Truex, but it was OK.

Jeff Gordon

0 - 3/18
After getting spun out by Paul Menard, Gordon did very well to rally back and finish 10th

0 - 11/18
Nice run for McMurray, who finished 12th after his crew frantically repaired the car he wrecked in practice Saturday.

Joey Logano

0 5 3/19
Consecutive weeks of early-race tire failure left Logano fuming, and understandably so

Aric Almirola

0 - 8/20
Smart fuel and tire strategy allowed Almirola to earn a sold top-five finish at New Hampshire

Ryan Newman

0 4 7/20
Newman lost his seat at Stewart-Haas Racing and got wrecked while in the top 10. Not fun.
