Kyle Busch

0 5 1/16
The Atlanta victory tied Busch for second in victories with Jimmie Johnson with four. He has the most top fives (11) and is tied for the lead in top 10s (15) as well.

3

Joey Logano

0 6 3/19
Six straight finishes of eighth or better for Logano, including three straight top fives. Red hot.

4

Clint Bowyer

0 1 2/15
A mixed night as Bowyer led 48 laps but lost an engine on Lap 192. He will be tough in the Chase, though

5

Kevin Harvick

0 - 1/15
A solid outing for Harvick, who finished ninth. But he faded a little bit at the end.

6

Jimmie Johnson

0 4 1/7
Another horrible race for Johnson, who finished 28th. And that was his best finish in the last three events.

7

Kurt Busch

0 3 2/19
On the basis of his fourth-place finish, Busch is now 10th in points and has a chance to make history next week by being the first single-car team to make the Chase.

8

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 - 1/14
Junior couldn’t take any chances and he didn’t, running conservatively to finish eighth.

9

Kasey Kahne

0 5 2/15
Every time it looks like Kahne is coming on, he has a bad race. Fast, but wildly inconsistent.

10

Carl Edwards

0 3 1/19
Speedy early on, Edwards gambled on pit strategy and fell like a rock late, finishing 18th.

11

Martin Truex Jr.

0 2 9/20
Brave and heroic run for Truex, who finished third despite a broken wrist and a cast that disintegrated.

12

Jeff Gordon

0 3 3/18
After finishing sixth in Atlanta, Gordon is just six points out of 10th place. Can he pull another Richmond miracle?

13

Greg Biffle

0 2 4/18
Hugely disappointing night for Biffle, who finished 15th and frankly never ran like a contender.

14

Ryan Newman

0 - 7/20
Despite a top-five finish, Newman actually is now the first driver on the outside looking in for a wild-card spot

15

Brad Keselowski

0 3 1/16
A devastating engine failure meant there is virtually no chance Keselowski makes the Chase.

Jamie McMurray

0 1 11/18
A devastating engine failure meant there is virtually no chance Keselowski makes the Chase.

17

Brian Vickers

0 - 15/20
An excellent top-10 finish for Vickers, who looks like a solid choice to drive the No. 55 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota

18

Juan Pablo Montoya

0 - 17/20
Seventh place for the lame-duck driver was his fourth consecutive finish of 11th or better.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear
19

Paul Menard

0 3 9/20
Despite being involved in a couple of crashes, Menard finished in the top 25.

20

Aric Almirola

0 - 8/20
A 20th-place finish for Almirola was just OK.
