Jeff Gordon

0 2 1/13
A fifth Brickyard 400 victory puts Gordon in a class of his own. And he widened his points lead and picked up 3 more bonus points. Has to be No. 1 this week. Last week: 3.

Brad Keselowski

0 2 1/12
Early contact damaged the aerodynamics on the Blanco Deuce and from there, Keselowski struggled. Last week: 1.

5

Kyle Busch

0 1 3/16
Best in class for Busch, as he was race runner-up and his Joe Gibbs Toyota was good but clearly behind the Hendrick cars. Last week: 6.

Joey Logano

0 - 1/16
Top-five finish for Logano was good but not great. His gamble on pit strategy didn't quite pay off. Last week: 7.

Carl Edwards

0 - 4/17
It's official: Edwards is leaving Roush Fenway Racing at the end of the year. No wonder, as he was 15th here. Last week: 13.

Strong run at Chicago, but needs a serious hot streak to make the Chase.
