Who’s Hot/Who’s Not

HOT

Kyle Busch: One more win and it will be a three-way tie to start the Chase.

Kevin Harvick: A Nationwide Series win and clinched a spot in the Chase – that’s a good weekend.

Chase Elliott: How he did it might be unpopular, but Elliott is NASCAR’s newest Truck series winner.

Joey Logano: Is anybody on a better roll heading into the Chase?

Martin Truex Jr.: Showed a lot of grit by gutting out a third-place finish at Atlanta with a broken wrist.

Sam Hornish Jr.: In good position to win his first NASCAR championship.

NOT

Brad Keselowski: The reigning champ is a frustrated one these days.

Kasey Kahne: Never seen someone in the wrong place at the wrong time so often.

Truck postrace melee: Assault on a participant cannot be tolerated.
