Who’s Hot/ Who’s Not
Kevin Harvick: He has led at least 10 laps in each of the past five races and has four top-five finishes in that span. Though he has yet to win, at sixth in points he is comfortably in the playoff race.
Austin Dillon: Last year looked like a breakout season for the Richard Childress Racing driver. He made the playoffs, and his first victory appeared to be imminent. He has regressed this season, though it might be unfair to pin that on him, as his Richard Childress Racing teammates are struggling, too. Dillon has only one top 10 finish, a fifth at Martinsville. At 22nd , he is one spot behind his younger brother, Ty, and far out of playoff contention. He got a new crew chief this week, as Justin Alexander replaced Slugger Labbe.
