1

Matt Kenseth

0 - 1/9
With a personal-best seventh victory of the season, Kenseth is in a league all by himself right now. His championship to lose, at least so far.

Kyle Busch

0 - 1/16
Two Chase races, two consecutive runner-up finishes and second in points is a great start to the Chase for Busch.

3

Jimmie Johnson

0 - 1/7
Will the Toyotas continue to open up a big ole’ can of whupass on the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet or can Johnson rally back? Time will tell.

Greg Biffle

An impressive late-race charge saw Biffle hold off Johnson to finish third behind Kenseth and Busch.

Kurt Busch

0 1 2/19
Way out in the weeds early, Busch and his crew fought back for a 13th-place finish. Not great, but not a disaster, either. .

6

Carl Edwards

0 1 1/19
By ending the race ninth, Edwards moved up to fourth in points, but he’s not anywhere near the top three.

Jeff Gordon

0 1 3/18
The four-time champion threw away a golden opportunity to win with a bad pit stop that dropped him from the lead.

Kevin Harvick

0 3 1/15
A not-so-happy Harvick was 20th in New Hampshire, pushing him far back of the leaders.

9

Ryan Newman

0 1 7/20
He won the pole, but his car was bad in race trim all weekend. Newman now the first driver a full race back in points.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 3 1/14
A nice outing for Junior, who rebounded from engine failure last week to finish sixth.

Clint Bowyer

0 1 2/15
New Hampshire is one of Bowyer’s best tracks, but he finished a disappointing 17th.

Joey Logano

0 - 3/19
Once the hottest driver in NASCAR, Logano ended the afternoon 14th.

13

Kasey Kahne

0 2 2/15
Scariest moment of the day? That would be Kahne’s dazed and confused interview after crashing. And yet he got back in his car. Wow. Just wow.

Martin Truex Jr.

0 1 9/20
Fast all day, Truex hated his last set of tires and faded back to 10th place when it looked like he might win.

Brad Keselowski

0 1 1/16
A bad pit stop cost Keselowski a top five and maybe even a victory.

Jamie McMurray

0 1 11/18
Wrecked by his teammate and run into after he stopped, McMurray somehow rallied to finish fifth.

Jeff Burton

0 - 16/22
He didn’t get any camera time because he’s not in the Chase, but Burton had a great race, coming home eighth.

0 2 8/20
It was an OK race for Almirola, who finished 21st.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

0 1 17/20
At least he ended his race ahead of his girlfriend.

Paul Menard

0 1 9/20
Failing to crack the top 20 was not the outing Menard wanted.
