1

Matt Kenseth

0 1 1/9
Although he has had an occasionally erratic season, so has everyone else. And Kenseth has the points lead starting out the Chase.

2

Kurt Busch

0 5 2/19
Now that he’s at long last finally locked himself into the Chase, Kurt Busch is a genuine threat to win a second championship.

Carl Edwards

0 7 1/19
With his second race victory of the year coming at Richmond, Carl Edwards moves way up here.

4

Kyle Busch

0 3 1/16
At one point, Busch thought that perhaps he had broken a left-front shock absorber. That’s how bad his car was at RIR.

5

Clint Bowyer

0 1 2/15
Did Bowyer’s late-race spin come about because his handling went away or because he wanted to get his teammate in the Chase?

6

Kevin Harvick

0 1 1/15
At times, Harvick looked good at RIR, but his 11th-place finish was only average and nothing to get excited about.

7

Jimmie Johnson

0 1 1/7
The good news for Johnson is that his second daughter was born Friday. The bad news? This is the worst four-race stretch of his career.

8

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 - 1/14
Sorry Junior Nation, but there’s nothing in Dale Earnhardt’s recent performances that suggests he’s ready to contend for a title.

Greg Biffle

0 4 4/18
By finishing 12th, Biffle managed to stay in the top-10 in points heading into the Chase.

10

Kasey Kahne

0 1 2/15
It was an awful night for Kahne, who struggled to finish 14th. He needs to pick it up in the Chase.

11

Martin Truex Jr.

0 - 9/20
A gutty effort by Truex to earn the second wild-card spot and make the Chase for the second year in a row.

12

Joey Logano

0 9 3/19
A nightmare weekend for Logano, who finished 22nd and only made it into the Chase by a single point.

13

Jeff Gordon

0 1 3/18
Bowyer’s dubious late-race spin cost Gordon a spot in the Chase after he had rallied back from two laps down.

14

Ryan Newman

0 - 7/20
It was a bitter night for Newman, who lost the race and a Chase slot on his final pit stop. He made no bones about blaming his team, either.

Jamie McMurray

0 1 11/18
An excellent performance by McMurray, who finished fourth.

Brad Keselowski

0 1 1/16
Richmond summed up Keselowski’s season: He had the speed to win, not the execution.

17

Paul Menard

0 2 9/20
Gambling on a two-tire stop helped Menard finish fifth, which was a good effort.

Juan Pablo Montoya

0 - 17/20
Not a bad night for Montoya, but not a great one, either

Aric Almirola

0 1 8/20
After running in the top 10 for a time, Almirola ended the night 10th.
