Who's Hot/Who's Not

HOT

Matt Kenseth: Would lead the Chase with his five wins.

Kasey Kahne: Nice guys sometimes finish second.

Kyle Busch: Won two of three races at Bristol (Tenn.).

Joey Logano: Put in a workman's performance to earn a fifth-place finish and break into the top 10 in points.

Juan Pablo Montoya: Learned he wasn't coming back next season but earned his second-best finish of the season.

NOT

Brad Keselowski: First he's in, now he's out of the top 10.

Kurt Busch: Please see Brad Keselowski.

Brian Vickers: Took a hard hit on the track and in his Nationwide Series title hopes.
