1

Jimmie Johnson

3 1 1/20
Two Chase races, two runnerup finishes and Five-Time is back atop the points standings. Be afraid, be very afraid. He’ll be a favorite next week at Dover, too.

2

Denny Hamlin

6 3 1/12
After a bad start in Chicagoland, Hamlin serves notice that he will be tough to beat with a dominating victory in New Hampshire.

3

Brad Keselowski

4 2 1/21
He didn’t win again this week, but Keselowski ran strongly at what historically is one of his weaker tracks and is only 1 point back of Johnson in the championship standings.

Another strong run at New Hampshire for Kahne, as he comes home fifth.

Once again, Bowyer’s speed and consistency is rewarded with a good finish.

Jeff Gordon

1 5 2/21
A third-place finish for Gordon has to have him wondering what might have been last week at Chicago.

Not a good points day for Earnhardt, as he finishes 13th.

Ouch. Truex finishes 17th, which is going to really hurt his chances going forward.

12

Greg Biffle

2 3 1/12
Unless Biffle has a sudden and substantial reversal of fortune, he looks like he’ll finish in the back half of the Chase.
