Who’s Hot/Who’s Not

HOT

Jimmie Johnson: Seems well on his way to being a six-time NASCAR champion.

Matt Kenseth: Recovered well from a pit-road speeding penalty at Texas to remain in a tight points battle.

Brad Keselowski: His win at Texas put Roger Penske one step closer to an owner’s championship in the Nationwide Series.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Five runner-up finishes this season, including three in the Chase.

Matt Crafton: Can clinch his first Truck Series championship this weekend.

Ty Dillon: A week of controversy ended in Victory Lane.

NOT

Jeff Gordon: Winner last week, out of the championship hunt this week.

Carl Edwards: Fastest Friday, but his car’s engine wouldn’t last on race day.
