Who’s Hot / Who’s Not

HOT

Carl Edwards: Locked into the Chase and gave Roush Fenway Racing a much-needed confidence boost.

Jeff Gordon: It has been quite some time since Gordon was this good week-in and week-out.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.: The benefit of fast cars and a better attitude on road courses was a third place at Sonoma.

Paul Menard: Back-to-back top fives and five top 10s in past seven races.

Brendan Gaughan: Ended a decade of disappointment with a win at Road America.

Landon Cassill: Among the best at making the most out of very little.

NOT

Kevin Harvick: Just when you think you’ve seen every way a fast car can lose a race.

AJ Allmendinger: Was the class of the field until he got in a wreck with Earnhardt.

Trevor Bayne: Has wrecked out of past two Nationwide races.
