Brad Keselowski

Kyle Busch

0 13 3/16
A dramatic last-lap pass for the victory was a repeat of what The Shrub did at this track last year. And it should be a huge momentum builder. Last week: 16.

Carl Edwards

0 - 4/17
Although he finished 10th, never led a lap and was never a factor in the race, Edwards took over the points lead. Last week: 4.

Déjà vu all over again for Harvick, who has a very fast car, only to finish poorly because of mechanical issues, in this case two tire failures. Last week: 8.
