Vote now: Which Chase driver will have the biggest rebound at Kansas?

BY foxsports • October 13, 2016

Outside of Jimmie Johnson, who ended up in Victory Lane, most of the 12 drivers in the Chase for the Sprint Cup left Charlotte feeling worse than when they entered Round 2 of the Chase. 

Among those drivers who dealt with issues, five had much worse days than some of their fellow championship contenders.

Kevin Harvick lost an engine on lap 155 and finished in 38th. On the same lap, Joey Logano had a tire go down for the second time in the race and smashed into the wall, finishing 36th.

About 100 laps later, Austin Dillon gambled with a two-tire pit stop and spun his tires on the restart. Martin Truex Jr. got into the back of him and caused a 10-car crash at the start-finish line. 

Dillon took a hard hit into the inside wall and finished 32nd. 

Chase Elliott was swept up in the accident and finished 33rd after leading 103 laps early in the race.

Finally, after it seemed like the issues were done for Chase drivers, Denny Hamlin's engine expired on lap 308, causing him to finish 30th.

With so many drivers having issues at Charlotte, many will be looking to rebound at Kansas.

Now's your chance to vote which of the five drivers who had the worst luck at Charlotte will make the best recovery this weekend.
