Kyle Busch

0 1 1/16
After three Chase races, Busch is still in the championship hunt. Couldn’t say that in years past.

Jeff Gordon

0 3 3/18
Had the last caution not come out, Gordon might have stolen a victory on fuel mileage. But it did.

Kevin Harvick

0 3 1/15
A sixth-place finish was good for Harvick but in terms of points, he’s still not in the same zip code as the leaders.

Greg Biffle

0 2 4/18
Used to be you could win the Chase with a bunch of top-10 finishes. Not anymore, as ninth was no good for the Biff.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 3 1/14
Winning the pole and finishing second was about as good as Earnhardt could have hoped for at Dover.

Nice third-place finish for Logano, who had an awful start to the Chase at Chicago and New Hampshire.

Clint Bowyer

Tenth place would have been OK except the first nine drivers were all in the Chase, too.

New crew, old problems add up to a forgettable day for the elder Busch brother, who finishes 21st.

Carl Edwards

0 6 1/19
A 35th-place finish at Dover kind of ended any hope Edwards had of being relevant in the Chase discussion.

A hugely disappointing outing for Kahne, the only Hendrick driver who didn’t finish in the top four.

Good run for Burton, who finished 14th as his RCR days wind to a close.
