Who’s Hot/Who’s Not

HOT

Matt Kenseth: It’s been seven years since Kenseth last won this many races. I suspect there are still more to come.

Joey Logano: He’s entered the Top 10 in points for just the second time this season.

Jamie McMurray: Coming on strong. Is it too late to make the Chase?

Jeremy Bullins: Penske Racing Nationwide crew chief has three wins with three different drivers this season.

Matt Crafton: Stellar Nationwide Series debut with Richard Childress Racing.

Ty Dillion: Put the famous No. 3 back in Victory Lane.

NOT

Regan Smith: He’s lost all but eight points of his 58-point lead in the Nationwide Series in the past two races.

Brad Keselowski: Had one of the fastest cars at Kentucky and never had a chance to show it thanks to Kurt Busch.

Jimmie Johnson: Very frustrating when dominant runs don’t turn into victories.
