Who’s Hot/ Who’s Not

HOT

Kurt Busch: Two wins and 11th in points – and he missed three races. Impressive.

Martin Truex Jr.: Not since Richard Petty in 1969 has a driver earned 14 top-10 finishes in the first 15 races.

Trevor Bayne: Picked up his first top-10 finish of the season on Sunday.

Kyle Busch: His return to the Xfinity Series was a winning one.

Chris Buescher: Building a sizable points lead that could land him the Xfinity Series championship.

Cole Custer: It’s never over until its over, especially when the race leaders wreck.

NOT

NASCAR: The race isn’t to halfway. Stop making decisions as if it is.

Kyle Busch: Wrecked when it was still raining when NASCAR restarted Sunday’s race after three long rain delays.

Greg Biffle: Two years since his last win, and it doesn’t look any better on the horizon.
