Who’s Hot/

Who’s Not


Jimmie Johnson: Victory Lane at Charlotte Motor Speedway. It’s as if he never left.

Kevin Harvick: He looks strong enough to win almost every week. Unfortunately, pit road and parts problems have hampered his quest.

Jamie McMurray: Won $1 million the first weekend at Charlotte and a season’s-best fifth-place finish in the second.

Jeff Gordon: Fought through back problems and still managed a seventh-place finish in the 600.

Kurt Busch: Finished sixth in the Indy 500. Who would have thought he would have more problems in his NASCAR ride?

Kyle Larson: Earned his second Nationwide Series win of the season in dominating fashion at Charlotte.


Kasey Kahne: This team just can’t seem to get out of its own way sometimes.

Martin Truex Jr.: Had all the makings of a much-needed top-five run until a broken axle ruined the night.
