Although it's a surprise that Harvick hasn't broken into Victory Lane this season, the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team has shown a ton of speed. Even if he doesn't win, they will a sure lock into the playoffs based on points.
Kyle Busch, 4th in points
Shockingly, Joe Gibbs Racing has yet to score a victory this year. Although Busch has been in contention, he hasn't been able to seal the deal.

Jamie McMurray, 5th in points
McMurray has been Mr. Consistency all season long. If he doesn't land in Victory Lane, chances are high that he'll make the playoffs based on points. That will put both Chip Ganassi Racing cars in the playoffs for the second consecutive year.
Chase Elliott, 8th in points
After four straigh finishes of 24th or worse, Elliott posted a fifth-place finish at Dover. Hopefully that's a sign of more things to come from the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team.

Denny Hamlin, 9th in points
Hamlin leapfrogged Clint Bowyer and Joey Logano in the points standings with an eighth-place finish at Dover. He hasn't won since Richmond in September 2016.
It’s never too early to start thinking about the playoff bubble. A handful of big names drivers including Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kasey Kahne and rookies Erik Jones and Daniel Suarez currently sit on the outside looking in.
Check out the three drivers currently on the bubble.
Ryan Blaney, 13th in points
Blaney has finished 24th or worse in five of the last seven races and dropped from fourth to 13th in the points standings.
Trevor Bayne, 17th in points
A 21st-place finish at Dover dropped Bayne from 16th to 17th in the points standings. It's time to win or collect top 10s consistently if he wants to join his teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in the playoffs.
Jones leads all rookies in the points standings, but he is currently 44 points behind Kenseth. He was on track for a solid top-10 finish at Dover before getting caught up in a multi-car crash in overtime to finish 15th.
