Who’s Hot/Who’s Not

HOT

Jeff Gordon: Five-time Brickyard winner. Will he be a five-time championship winner?

Kyle Busch: His run of second-place finishes may not be his preference, but that type of consistency is what wins championships.

Joe Gibbs Racing: As a whole, the organization appears to be headed in the right direction to competing regularly with Hendrick Motorsports and Team Penske.

Kevin Harvick: Leads the Cup series with four poles – and has 10 in his entire career.

Ty Dillon: Is there a better place to earn a first series victory than the Brickyard?

Darrell Wallace Jr.: He’s amassing quite the impressive driver resume, picking up a win on dirt at Eldora Speedway.

NOT

Jimmie Johnson: Curiously not a factor in Sunday’s race at Indy.

Tony Stewart: Please see Jimmie Johnson.

Kasey Kahne: Could he have a more frustrating season?

Jim Utter
