Who’s Hot/

Jimmie Johnson: People worried about him not winning. Now it appears he may never lose.

Matt Kenseth: Getting in the top five ballpark but still lacks a win this season.

Kyle Busch: Swept the Truck and Nationwide races at Dover.

Trevor Bayne: Ran second to winner Busch in the Nationwide race. That’s still a good thing.

Timothy Peters: Takes over the Truck series points lead thanks to a wreck by Matt Crafton.

Ryan Blaney: Finishes really well (second at Dover) when he doesn’t get wrecked out of Truck races.


Dover International Speedway: If your track is coming apart, it may be time for a repave.

Kyle Busch: Wins the “double” award for also getting wrecked out of the Cup race at Dover.

Matt Crafton: Wrecked out of the Truck race and with him went the series points lead.
