1 +2 Brad Keselowski
Battled through the big one and survived with a top 10. He was also your stage one winner. Is Brad the best restrictor plate racer on the circuit?
2 -1 Kyle Larson
Finished 12th at Talladega after having issues early. He’s struggled at Kansas but has also reached a new level this year. This week will be a good test, much like the rest of the season to this point.
3 +3 Jimmie Johnson
Was in position to steal another win at Talladega before sliding to 8th. He’s good at Kansas. Who am I kidding? He’s good everywhere.
4 -2 Martin Truex Jr.
Big one victim.
5 -1 Chase Elliott
Ditto. Did you see the camera angle of him grinding the wall like Tony Hawk? Awesome.
6 -1 Joey Logano
Ditto again. Bonus bad luck. His Richmond win will no longer count for the playoffs.
7 +2 Jamie McMurray
I’m not ready to rank him higher than 7th,but his second place run at Talladega was a great reminder of how good he is on the plate tracks.
8 -1 Kevin Harvick
Was in the big one but stuck around till the end. I’m starting to get itchy waiting for the 4 car to get to victory lane.
9 NR Kyle Busch
KB had it in the bag! How often are we going to say that this year? By the way, he’s a world-beater at Kansas. Fantasy players take note.
10 NR Denny Hamlin
What a day for JGR! Led a ton of laps and didn’t get the win. Denny did get a stage win, however.
