Jeff Gordon

0 4 1/13
"Big Daddy" doesn't have a victory yet this season, but he has three top fives, four top 10s and the points lead, so this week he moves to the top of the board. Last week: 5.

Joey Logano

0 8 1/16
With his victory at Texas, Logano pretty much punched his ticket to the Chase for the Sprint Cup. What was impressive was how much faster he was than teammate Brad Keselowski. Last week: 10.

Matt Kenseth

0 - 3/12
Like teammate Kyle Busch, Kenseth wasn't one of the top cars at any point during the Texas weekend, but a top-10 finish kept him second in points. Last week: 3.

Kyle Busch

0 2 3/16
The Joe Gibbs Racing Toyotas simply weren't as good as the best cars at Texas, yet somehow Busch managed to finish third. Last week: 6.

5

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 4 1/11
Duoh! Junior misjudged where he was and ended up mowing the grass in spectacular fashion, his car catching fire when he crashed on Lap 13. Not good. Last week: 1.

6

Carl Edwards

0 2 4/17
At first, Edwards seemed really, really fast. But he quickly lost the handle and slumped to a 14th-place finish. Last week: 4.

Jimmie Johnson

0 5 1/15
The six-time champion was right behind Earnhardt when he had his moment and it tore up Johnson's car, too, dooming him to a poor finish. Last week: 2.

8

Brad Keselowski

0 1 1/12
Woulda', coulda', shoulda'. The 2012 champion led 85 laps, but a pit-road speeding penalty at the end dropped him to 15th. Last week: 7.

Paul Menard

0 5 9/20

13

Tony Stewart

0 2 3/20
The three-time champion led 74 of the first 76 laps, but faded towards the back of the top 10 for most of the rest of the race. And 10th is where he finished. Last week: 15.

Ryan Newman

0 1 2/15
A 16th-place finish dropped Newman out of the top 10 in points. Last week: 13.

Austin Dillon

0 4 8/16
Sick early in the weekend, Dillon can't have been made to feel any better by an ill-handling race car. Last week: 11.

Greg Biffle

0 4 7/20
Excellent sixth-place run for Biffle, though not as good as he hoped for. Last week: 20.

Marcos Ambrose

0 - 18/20
A disappointing 20th-place run for the Aussie. Last week: 18.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear
19

Kurt Busch

0 10 3/20
Winning in Martinsville didn't do squat for Busch at Texas, as he had a big tire failure and fought poor handling all day en route to a 39th-place finish. Last week: 9.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear
20

Kevin Harvick

0 12 1/20
Horrible day for Harvick, who lost an engine after just 28 laps and finished 42nd. Oof. Last week: 8.
