1

Jimmie Johnson

0 - 1/7
Absolutely dreadful weekend for Five-Time, who crashed in Happy Hour and blew an engine in the race.

2

Kevin Harvick

0 3 1/15
Given that he’s a lame duck at Richard Childress Racing, Harvick has had a remarkable season.

3

Clint Bowyer

0 1 2/15
After spinning out on Lap 1 — Lap 1! — props to Bowyer for rebounding to finish in the top five.

4

Kurt Busch

0 7 2/19
If he can finish out the regular season with three more good races, Kurt Busch could be very dangerous once the Chase to the Sprint Cup arrives.

5

Brad Keselowski

0 4 1/16
Strategy bit the No. 2 team at the end of the race, but they are running a lot better now than they were.

6

Carl Edwards

0 4 1/19
Ford’s best track and Edwards doesn’t lead a lap and barely cracks the top 10? Not impressive.

7

Kyle Busch

0 4 1/16
After winning at Watkins Glen, this should have been a big weekend for Busch, but he was bad at Michigan, spinning twice.

8

Matt Kenseth

0 1 1/9
For the third race in a row, Kenseth failed to finish inside the top 15. Not a good omen.

9

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 3 1/14
Fast early, Earnhardt popped a tire and had a bad day. Will that hurt his confidence?

10

Kasey Kahne

0 2 2/15
A decent finish for Kahne, but seventh was below what he hoped for.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear
11

Joey Logano

0 5 3/19
Huge win for Logano, who for the first time this year is relevant in the wild-card discussion.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear
12

Greg Biffle

0 - 4/18
When he was in clean air, Biffle was fast. When he wasn’t, he was nowhere.

13

Martin Truex Jr.

0 3 9/20
When you’re on the wild-card bubble, you want and need to finish better than 16th. Truex didn’t at MIS.

14

Ryan Newman

0 1 7/20
The Brickyard 400 winner, unlike his boss, still has a realistic shot to make the Chase.

15

Jeff Gordon

0 1 3/18
Gordon is ranked sixth in the wild-card standings. His Chase hopes are pretty much toast after finishing 17th in Michigan.

16

Paul Menard

0 1 9/20
First top-five finish of the year for Menard, which means it’s Menardi Gras time! Holla!

17

Mark Martin

0 - 8/19
It was good to see Martin out front in the closing laps. Sometimes, old guys really do rule.

Jamie McMurray

0 3 11/18
A tough race for McMurray, who finished 22nd.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear
19

Jeff Burton

0 1 16/22
Great eighth-place run for Burton.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear
20

Aric Almirola

After running in the top-five late, Almirola faded to 18th at the end.
